Ever since Zack Snyder announced Ben Affleck as his choice for Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, the internet has alternately applauded and trashed his selection (mostly trashed). Now, though, we’ve finally gotten our first look at Affleck as the Caped Crusader—along with a bonus glimpse at the newly redesigned Batmobile.
The reveal comes just one day after Snyder dropped some teasers on Twitter, including one of a partially obscured Batmobile. The result is something of a cross between Chrisopher Nolan’s Tumbler from The Dark Knight and Tim Burton’s Batman, and the same can be said for Affleck’s Batman Himself. Snyder today revealed the teaser, including the caption "I shot this with my @Leica_Camera M Monochrom. #Batman #Batmobile #Gotham http://imgur.com/3hRU6px" with the tweet.
Interestingly, news about Snyder’s sequel has been scarce. Aside from cast announcements including Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jessie Eisenberg as Lex Luthor—and, of course, the rescheduled release date—our first look at Affleck as the Dark Knight is the first we’ve heard from the Snyder camp in some time.
However, with the as-yet-untitled Man of Steel sequel having been slated with a May 2015 release date, it might be wise to keep an eye on San Diego Comic-Con in July.
