To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Caped Crusader, DC Comics are going all out with their “Batman 75” celebrations at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. That includes revealing a brand new image of Ben Affleck suited up as the iconic character in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
As part of their Batman 75th Anniversary montage wall created for the show, DC and Warner Bros. have included this new image of the next actor who will be bringing The Dark Knight back to the big screen in 2016. It’s a very atmospheric shot, and gives us perhaps the best look at the redesigned cowl yet.
There appears to be something to the right of Batman in this image, so could this simply be part of something bigger? Speculation continues to run rampant that we’ll get a first look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman at some point this weekend, and this being just part of a larger teaser poster isn’t too hard to believe!
Either way, we’ll learn more when Warner Bros. hold their panel on Saturday. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is still set to be released on May 6th, 2016 (the same date as Captain America 3) and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on this movie and plenty of others this weekend with our Comic-Con coverage!
