After yesterday’s tease of that we would be seeing more of the new Batmobile, Zack Snyder has not only kept his word, showing more of the car, but has also given us our first look at Ben Affleck as Batman.
Yesterday, the director of the forthcoming Superman vs. Batman film and the recently confirmed JLA movie, teased that we would soon be seeing more of the vehicle, or as he put it: “Could be time to pull the tarp…Tomorrow?”
Turns out the tarp was pulled back by none other than the Dark Knight himself. From the picture, it’s clearly Affleck (look at the chin) in the redesigned batsuit, which, with smaller ears, looks reminiscent of Frank Miller’s Dark Knight costume. It also looks like he’s considerably bulked up for the role.
Meanwhile, the Batmobile looks pitched somewhere between the power of Nolan’s tumbler and the sportier incarnations that appeared in earlier films.
The unofficially titled Batman vs. Superman film is set for release on May 6, 2016, while the Justice League of America film is expect sometime in 2018.
