First Look: Ben Affleck In Costume As Batman From 'Batman Vs. Superman'

Yesterday, director Zack Snyder teased a first look at the new Batmobile, and today he gave fans something even better. Here’s your first look at Ben Affleck as Batman in “Batman Vs. Superman.” 

It’s a canny move on behalf of Warner Bros. to beat the set picture paparazzi by unveiling their new post-Christian Bale Batman before nerds freak out over set pictures taken out of context from blocks and blocks away. And frankly, it doesn’t seem too far removed from Christopher Nolan‘s approach. The Batmobile looks military grade and Bruce Wayne looks broody, though the suit seems to have received a different treatment—something a bit more textured and with a giant-ass logo on it. Frankly, it’s a nice tease and not much to complain about here, but we’re sure super dorks will find something to cause them consternation.

Thoughts? Let us know below. “Batman Vs. Superman” arrives on May 6, 2016.
