First look at Ben Affleck as Batman

Yesterday, Zack Snyder promised us a better look at the new Batmobile for his Man Of Steel (2013) follow-up Superman Vs. Batman, but he's delivered quite a bit more than that today, with our first look at the new Batsuit as well.


This certainly looks like something of a return to the traditional sculpted offering rather than Christian Bale's (Dark Knight Rises) Kevlar plated suit. But it also has a moody, monochromatic quality that is closer to some of Christopher Nolan's films, not to mention Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. And if that is indeed Ben Affleck in the suit, as the chin suggests, he's clearly been hitting the gym even more than normal.

You can get a high resolution version of the image right here.








The Batmobile itself, meanwhile, also seems like a hybrid of the Nolan/Bale era Tumbler and the sleekness of previous incarnations.

With Henry Cavill returning as Superman, alongside Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6), Amy Adams (American Hustle), Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Laurence Fishburne (Contagion), Jeremy Irons (Beautiful Creatures), Callan Mulvey (Zero Dark Thirty), Holly Hunter (Paradise) and Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine) all lined up to co-star, the film will be out in the UK on 29 April 2016 before hitting US screens later on 6 May 2016.
