Here’s Ben Affleck as Batman (and the new Batmobile)

Posted 6 years ago by Movies


After teasing us with a shot of the Batmobile yesterday, Superman vs. Batman director Zack Snyder has just unveiled a black and white shot of Ben Affleck as Batman, standing next to the Batmobile. It’s hard to see all the detail in this monotone shot (even after I adjusted the brightness/contrast), but I love the direction they’re going.

The short ears are awesome, I was actually worried they were going to go with really long ears that would have looked strange. I love these. Also, Batman is huge. I love how thick he looks. I always felt that (even though he was buff) Christian Bale looked tiny in his batsuit.

I totally dig the big Dark Knight Returns bat-symbol, and I love the 90s utility belt filled with pouches. The big thing I’m waiting to see is the color(s) of the suit. I’m really hoping for some gray and not just all-black, but we’ll see.

What do you guys think?

  • It…looks like Batman! I think this looks great and the Batmobile looks a lot more historically accurate which is awesome.

  • Is it just me or does the costume, um, ribbed for fanboy’s pleasure? Seriously, is that like muscle detail in the suit, like underneath the skin muscle texture?

    I like what I see so far. Really anxious to see more.

    Given the tones in the image, I’m pretty sure we’ll get the gray & black costume.

    This image got me excited for MoS2.
    This is what The TMNT movie should’ve done.
    Released professional images of the characters before any information leaked.
