Ben Affleck revealed more of his Batman self today as the latest image from 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' has hit. If you're at Comic-Con, you'll be able to see this up close along with the Michael Keaton, George Clooney and Val Kilmer Batsuits out on display.
This is part of the 75th anniversary look at all the Batman images showing the batastic one in all his incarnations from television, movies, toys and clothing. “Yes, as fans have started pointing out, within the dozens of photos and illustrations on the wall is a brand new image of Batman from the upcoming film ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,’” the company mentioned on DCComics.com. “The filmmakers wanted to include this new cinematic version of the Dark Knight in the anniversary mosaic so it could be discovered by fans.”
Fans were up in arms when it was first announced that Zack Snyder's follow-up to 'Man of Steel' would star Ben Affleck as the new Batman, but things have cooled down where they're more excited to see something, anything from the film this week at Comic-Con. The first image of Affleck's Batman was from a distance, but this time you get to see the tense lips and stubbled cheek. Some are calling this image 'Sadman' while others are just asking for a full length shot look at the new Batsuit after all the teaser images over the past few weeks.
