Holy Sneak Peek!
Zack Snyder, the director of the tentatively titled Batman Vs. Superman movie has tweeted the first photo of Ben Affleck as the new Batman, standing next to the latest Batmobile. The new Batman suit is dark -- though unlike others seen in previous films appears to be grey with black accents -- and thanks to its musculature, Affleck looks huge in it. The Bat symbol on his chest is dark colored, and also large, while his "bat ears" are small -- a throwback to comic legend Frank Miller's take on the Caped Crusader in his classic graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns. The Batmobile is also a mix of previous Batmobile models and the newer "Tumbler" vehicle Christian Bale used in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy. The sneak peek of Affleck's Batman and his ride comes after Snyder teased fans Monday with a partial reveal of a mostly tarp-covered Batmobile via a Twitter post. "Could be time to pull the tarp…Tomorrow?" Snyder captioned the pic, which was shot in a warehouse. The sequel to Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, and Laurence Fishburne, among others. It hits theaters on May 6, 2016. Are you still a fan of the Batman series after all these years?
