We think Ben looks perfect as the Caped Crusader in this dark, noir-esque black and white pic, and we can’t wait to see him in action on the big screen!
Zack got fans excited by teasing the Batmobile on May 12. We’re glad he didn’t wait too long to ditch that pesky tarp!

Zack Synder: Ben Affleck Has The ‘Charm’ & The ‘Chops’ To Play Batman
Zack always knew that Ben would be perfect for the iconic superhero role in Batman vs. Superman, the sequel to the director’s Man of Steel movie. Zack said in a statement:
Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can’t wait to work with him.
And we can’t wait to see him save the day!
