First Look: Ben Affleck as Batman

While the Batman-Superman movie is still two years away from hitting theaters, director Zack Snyder posted the first look of Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight on Tuesday, alongside his new Batmobile.

The Batmobile is somewhat obscured by Affleck but the black and white image gives fans a chance to debate how the new suit compares to past costumes. The Batsuit has always been a divisive feature of every Batman pic — especially since George Clooney’s costume in “Batman and Robin,” which came complete with the now-infamous “Batnipples,” gave fans an advanced warning that the Joel Schumacher production might be troubled.

The untitled Batman-Superman film co-stars Henry Cavill (Superman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) and begins filming this summer in Detroit.

Batman-Superman opens in U.S. theaters May 6, 2016.
