Director Zack Snyder Tweets Photo of Ben Affleck In Batman Costume
On Tuesday, director Zack Snyder tweeted the first official photo of Ben Affleck in costume as Batman, standing alongside his new Batmobile.
It looks like Batman has been hittin’ the juice.
The black-and-white photo shows the new Batsuit, which appears more textured, chiseled and comic-book-like than the armor-plated version worn by Christian Bale.

In fact, it most resembles the suit worn by Michael Keaton — smaller ears and a much larger bat-symbol across the chest than previous suits.
Thankfully, it appears there are no bat nipples.
Affleck’s Batmobile appears to have combined the style and elements of both the Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan film versions. Giant off-road tires and heavy armor of the Tumbler from Nolan– but with smoother lines and big fins from the Burton movies.
And yes, it’s best to keep pretending the George Clooney-Val Kilmer Batman era never happened.
