The following is an excerpt from ‘Batman’: Zack Snyder tweets new portrait of Ben Affleck as Dark Knight
Zack Snyder, the director of the upcoming “Man of Steel” sequel that will bring together Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, released a new photo of actor Ben Affleck in Batman’s cape and cowl on Thursday, the opening day of Comic-Con International 2014.
The close-up shot arrives one day after July 23, which had been officially declared Batman Day to honor the hero’s 75th anniversary.
Set for release on May 6, 2016, “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice” will see Henry Cavill reprise his “Man of Steel” role as Superman, with Affleck taking over as Batman and Israeli actress Gal Gadot portraying Wonder Woman.

While the body of the suit was missing, fans were still able to see how the face of the cowl was structured, which goes a long way to show how the character will look on the big screen. After all, Batman has had more on-screen costume interpretations than just about any other superhero character, so fans are always eager to see how good the latest incarnation will look.
Some costumes have been great, and some have been disastrous — bat-nipples anyone? This one keeps the ears small, and the color palette black. As a vigilante working at night and utilizing the power of intimidation over his foes, the blues and brighter colors seen in some costumes never made much sense.
The batsuit was part of a mini-exhibition celebrating the 75th anniversary of Batman’s debut in Detective Comics #27. Joining the Affleck suit were the costumes worn by Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney from the Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher series of films from 1989-1997.
