First Look at Batman vs. Superman's Batman!

The wait is over! Come get a good look at Ben Affleck in the new costume!

Yesterday, we were treated to a first look at Batman vs. Superman's new batmobile. Well, the back of it and the basic shape, that is. Today, we're getting a first look at the new batsuit AND the front of the batmobile! Director Zack Snyder shared the image via Twitter and says he took it with a Leica M Monochrom camera.

Well, what do you think, Viners? Share your thoughts below.

Man of Steel's sequel is expected to open May 6, 2016.

Awesome.

Something just doesn't seem right. Are the ears on the suit a little small?

Posted by SupBatz

Batmobile, cool. Batsuit? Okay. I wish the symbol wasn't so fat and that the ears were a bit longer. But it looks decent enough. I'll wait until I see it in color (and in different positions) before I write it off completely.

Yep...it looks like Batman.

No word yet on whether that's the final product or if that's Affleck in the costume or even if that's a human being and not just a mannequin, but the shorter ears, thicker build and emblem are definitely inspired by The Dark Knight Returns.

For comparison:

So..........SUPERMAN PUNCHOUT WHEN?

That's definitely Affleck's buttchin. I mean, I guess it could be a mannequin of his face, but it's definitely his face.

seriously this is what i've been trying to say all along.

the costume looks like Batman. and it shouldn't look like anything else. people are really nitpicking if they go overboard in either direction lol.

Grey will be a nice change to pure black if its the case...but otherwise ...its Batman lol

Car looks dope though.

SWEET!

Posted by RustyRoy

Looks AMAZING!!!! Just wish that the ears where a bit longer but looks like the were going for TDKR suit.

Edited by PunyParker

@rustyroy: I SO F8CKING TOLD YA ALL,THAT AFFLECK'S GONNA LOOK AWESOMETACULAR!!!!!!!

JESUS,that's awesome.

(Fantastic suit.Fantastic Batmobile.....holy mother of God.)

Edited by JakeN7

OH SH*T SON!

That is so Dark Knight Returns it hurts. Pretty friggin' awesome. Hopefully we'll get a look at it without that grainy filter...

In other news, that's one of the best Batmobiles I've ever seen, and my panties are officially moist....

...and I don't even wear panties! I'm a dude!

Ahhh! Very hype, much wow, so gasp, such excite.

Posted by DeathandGrim

It looks pretty cool. And damn the batmobile definitely gets bitches

Edited by Captain13

@txman210: That's how Jim Lee draws the ears. Makes sense if he has to tumble or hit into small spaces.

Posted by iaconpoint

I'll bet we have Jim Lee to thank for the ears. It looks okay but I prefer the tall Arkham-style ears.

Edited by Russcovito

Honestly.. I don't it does look good but the symbol is way too big, i never was a fan of the DKR costume, the ear aren't that big a deal

Posted by Paul2814

Looks fantastic.

Posted by iDude

Looks great, IMO best batsuit yet. We just need a photo of the trinity now...

Edited by The_Comebacks

Looks great! the DKR symbol isn't my favorite-but I get what they are going for-the grittier, older batman.

Posted by BudaXD

Looks beautiful! I just Zack Snyder doesn't screw this one up!

@saren: Right? The resemblance is more than a little uncanny. That bat-symbol is nearly identical. And they tried telling us reading an excerpt from TDKR during the movie's announcement was inconsequential, and not representative of the direction they were taking the film. "Tt." What a bunch of bull.

Edited by Jphu8414

I love it

Posted by flameboy298

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG IM SO PUMPED AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Posted by SirSparkington

Yup, that looks pretty Batmany alright.

Posted by EdBlank

I never liked the monochrome Batman look. I truly like the blue and grey with yellow accents best. This looks like it's just a grey body suit with a cowl. Can hardly even see the belt. We'll see. I don't like the dark red/dark blue look for Super either. Next thing you know Supes'll be killing his enemies...

Various sources I respect are claiming it's Affleck in it and it definitely looks like his chin/mouth/jaw. Seeing as they're filming this week and this is the first look, I think it's more than safe to assume that's the final product. You know, give or take whatever VFX they may use along the way.

Haha. I think there will definitely be some fan service, but Snyder's implied he thinks it's a very one-sided fight. I'm hoping it'll be Batman staying a step ahead and testing Superman instead of RUMBLE IN THE STREETS, YO! You know, one of those "we're enemies until we must team up towards the end!" kind of situations.

Ears are cool.
DKR cool.

It's spectacular.

Edited by Jakkoaks

Awesome looking forward to this!

Edited by JonSmith

Hm... The ears are shorter and I miss the old emblem, but not too shabby, not too shabby at all.

Edited by GodDamnIronMan

Wow, the batmobile!

Edited by Kal'smahboi

Wow I'm impressed. Looks better than Nolan's (from what I can see.) And they weren't kidding about Affleck looking like a real life superhero. He's looks bigger and better than I expected.

Edited by entropy_aegis

Underwhelming TBH,the Batmobile is all sorts of awesome but the suit leaves a lot to be desired,I'm sure the fanboys will love it cause NO ARMOR NOLAN SUCKS,but the suit doesn't appeal to me at all. The ears are too short,I'm not one to complain about something so minor but he should atleast look Batlike,these ears give off more of a cat vibe. Dont like the ridiculous abs in the suit either especially when it's so blatantly clear that Affleck doesn't have them.

Edited by GraniteSoldier

Suit and batmobile both look great. This has me far more excited for the film instead another character announcement.

This doesn't look like a human in the costume but damn that looks awesome. I really hope this is the final product we'll get.
