The wait is over. Zack Snyder unveiled the first photo of Ben Affleck as Batman today on Twitter. The photo shows the new Batsuit (which has veins?) as well as the new Batmobile.

Snyder didn’t reveal much else about Ben Affleck of the new Batman Vs. Superman movie. He simply said that the photo was taken with a Leica Camera. Thanks, that’s exactly what I wanted to know.
Affleck was heavily criticized after it was announced that he would be playing Batman in the new movie but this photo could change a few minds. Sure, you can’t really tell it’s Affleck in the photo but we’re really not concerned with that at the moment. Right now we’re just interested in the Batsuit and the Batmobile and both look pretty spectacular.
Of course, not everyone is going to be happy with this rendition. Some people are already poking fun at the suit for having veins while others are surprised to see how small Batman’s ears are. And then there are others who don’t care what the Batsuit looks like because Ben Affleck is going to be the man inside.
"Jeez Batman, you got awful posture. Didn't your Mom ever tell you to stand up straight?" Awkward silence. "Oooooh… right."

It would be worth getting excited about the next Batman movie if it was starring Christian Bale & had "Dark Knight" in the title.

Batman got clipped ears like a pitbull. The disrespect.

The Batsuit may get ridiculed for its veins but this is definitely in a level (or two) above George Clooney’s infamous nipple suit.
What do you think of the new Batsuit? What about the Batmobile? Do you think Ben Affleck is going to make a good Batman?
