First Look: Ben Affleck as Batman!


Following a sneak peek at the new Batmobile, director Zack Snyder has revealed the very first official image of Ben Affleck’s costume as an bulkier Bats!

Both Batman and his vehicle look awesome and it will be interesting to see how they look in color.

I knew that Snyder loves Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns,” but now I see that’s exactly what he’s doing in Batman vs. Superman movie. And I would be very happy to see how Affleck steps into shoes of Christian Bale, Michael Keaton and George Clooney, opposite a returning Henry Cavill as Superman.

While a suit design we haven’t seen on the big screen before, Batman’s new ride looks like a sleeker version of the most recent edition and has taken some inspiration from the ’80s and ’90s Batman films.

Snyder has jammed his movie with talented actors and new characters such as villainous Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). The untitled Batman/Superman film also stars Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, and Tao Okamoto with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane reprising their roles.

The film opens in theaters May 6, 2016.

Shot on set with Snyder’s Leica M Monochrom camera, the image of sad Batman looks glorious except for the ears, but it looks nigh perfect and right off the comic into reality.
