First Look: Ben Affleck as Batman

After much anticipation, an image of the "new Batman" — played by Ben Affleck — has finally been released. Director Zack Snyder posted the above photo via Twitter to show how the Caped Crusader will appear in his upcoming Man of Steel sequel. It seems like the suit, and Batmobile, take inspiration from Frank Miller‘s graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns , and may even borrow a few plot details from the iconic publication. Although we're still waiting to see a trailer, the Man of Steel sequel is looking at a May 6, 2016 release date.

Can Affleck fill the shoes (literally) of Christian Bale? Let us know what you guys think.
