Ben Affleck’s Batman Costume UnveiledMay 13, 2014
Yesterday Zack Synder teased an upcoming reveal of the new Batmobile. Today, he’s surprised us with not only a full look at Batman’s ride, but also Ben Affleck suited up in full costume as the Dark Knight.
Yesterday, the director of the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film and the recently confirmed Justice League of America movie teased a reveal of Batman’s ride, tweeting “Could be time to pull the tarp…Tomorrow?”
Batman himself was the one to pull back that tarp, as we get a great look at a completely redesigned BatSuit, very reminiscent of the Frank Miller TDKR version. Ben Affleck’s Batman costume features smaller ears, without the armor of the Christopher Nolan/ Christian Bale version. It’s obvious that Affleck has beefed up quite a bit for this role.
As you could tell from the earlier tease of the Batmobile, it’s a bit of a mix between the tank-like Nolan iteration and the more traditional Batman 1989 film’s.
Zack Snyder’s unofficially titled Batman vs. Superman film is set for release on May 6, 2016, while the Justice League of America film will likely release sometime in 2018.
