The first image of Ben Affleck as Batman in director Zack Snyder’s superhero sequel Batman vs. Superman (unofficial title) has landed online. Affleck plays Bruce Wayne/Batman to Henry Cavill’s Superman in the follow-up to Snyder’s 2013 film Man of Steel, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane reprising their roles, Gal Gadot onboard as Wonder Woman, and Jesse Eisenberg set as the villainous Lex Luthor. This new image also shows us the front of the Batmobile after getting a peek under the tarp yesterday. Both Batman and his vehicle look fine; they’re distinct from the previous iterations without being too foreign. The ears are the stubbiest they’ve been since Adam West‘s Batman costume, and the insignia is gigantic. It will be interesting to see how it looks in color. I’m just wondering why Batman looks so sad when he has such an awesome car. Chin up, Bats.
Hit the jump to check out the debut Ben Affleck Batman image. The film also stars Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, and Tao Okamoto. The untitled Batman/Superman film opens in theaters May 6, 2016.
