First look at Ben Affleck's Batman from 2016's Batman VS Superman

A departure from, yet a nod to Chris Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy

Following Batman VS Superman Director Zack Snyder's sneak peek at the upgraded Batmobile that we reported on yesterday, Snyder has returned today with a near full reveal of the new Bat suit that will be worn by Ben Affleck in the 2016 epic in the making.


Affleck's Batman looks much larger and more bear-like than Christian Bale's, an oppressive figure that shouldn't be messed with. Eagle eyed fans will notice he sports shorter bat ears that recall Adam West's 60's TV show interpretation and the absence of bat nipples that plagued the Joel Schumacher films.

The closer look at the new Batmobile reveals a vehicle that seems to take its cues from the Nolan films, but in a sleeker, less industrial form.


Batman VS Superman releases in the United States on May 6th, 2016.
