Zack Snyder Reveals Affleck’s Batman
— ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) May 13, 2014
That was tweeted by Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder earlier today. It is our first look at Ben Affleck’s Batman and the Batmobile.
For those who know comics, you might notice some similarities between this suit design and the Batman suit in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. When this movie was announced, someone read out a passage from the forth issue of that story, in which Batman and Superman fight. Snyder said at the time that they movie wouldn’t be an adaptation of the story but “it will help us tell you something.”
Honestly, I think it looks pretty good. I mean, Affleck himself looks more depressed than a guardian of the night, but the suit itself looks cool. You can find a lightened version of the photo below. Batman vs. Superman is set for release on May 6th, 2016.
