Second Image of Ben Affleck as Batman Released

Get a closer look at the Caped Crusader's face.

It's Batman's 75th anniversary, so you can bet we'll be seeing plenty of the Dark Knight at this year's San Diego Comic-Con (so much for his stealth abilities, eh?). To celebrate the big occasion, DC created a montage wall and it includes a brand new image of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's version of the immensely popular hero!

What do you think, Viners? Do you think Affleck and this design are going to look awesome on the big screen or are you feeling skeptical? Share your thoughts with us below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder and scheduled to open May 6, 2016.

not sold yet on the short ears but everything else looks great...I think Affleck will turn out to be a solid choice for Batman. I think everything with the eyes and mouth look damn near perfect...almost looks like an Arkham game...its just the ears remind me of Adam West too much.

What. a. CHIN!

This is a photo of the cape and cowl. It seems like Batman is losing the ability to turn his head again.

He looks so depressed

Here's an enhanced version of the photo

I mean I was mad when they cast him too, but now he's looking like he'll do an ok job. but we haven't seen a trailer yet.....so if he sucks in that then my opinion will probably change. but I mean he did a good job in Argo, and he seems like he could play a good Bruce Wayne. plus the suit is pretty sweet.

hows your neck ben?

@lyrafay: and general audiences are going to be more attracted to Dawn of Justice? The title that sounds like a Superfriends Episode?

It's time general audiences found out what World's Finest is. That's the point.

Still wish the ears were a tad longer, but I'll get over it.

Cool pic.

Why was this movie moved to 2016 again?

Edited by Jeepeh

The Dark Knight Returns is strong with this one...

(Yes I'm terrible)

I'm not sure if I'm a fan of the stubby ears, but that's a minor quibble.

@flameboy298: Gal Gadot is still working out for the WW role, that's what I heard a few weeks ago. GG hasn't been filmed yet, idk if that's the reason or not. But I'm pretty sure the film was pushed back because they brought in another guy (from Argo) to redo the script.

I really like this picture of Batman, Affleck looks perfect for the role. I just hope the next photo they release will show a better look at him.

I like the short ears. I've seen Batman with ears that short somewhere. Hush?
I even had the Joker in my head saying, "The ears are too long, but not too shabby." (Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker)

I guess the cowl is flexible if it wrinkles together above his eyes. That lump looks weird to me.

Posted by ShadowSwordmaster

This look pretty good and I can not wait to see more photos of the Batman.

@riosishere: I agree on your opinion on the casting. I'm getting the feeling this movie is a little bit rushed IMHO.

Ben is naturally taller than Cavill, the ears will only make him look even bigger.

Edited by Transformers1024

Dat butt-chin tho...

Why don't they just release a photo of Batman AND Superman both on one pic?

Because the Bromance has not yet been established.

Loving the Batstubble!

I just wish the ears were like an inch to an inch and a half longer, but that's nitpicking.

Overall, I think it looks great!

Edited by jumpstart55

Now There's A Batman!

Nah In all seriousness it looks awesome,definitely psyched for this movie, hopefully it doesn't disappoint.

Not a fan of the small ears.

I still can't get over the terrible name of the movie lol.

I always read "Dawn of Justice" in Ted Knight's voice from the old Superfriends show.

Am I the only one that completely hates the new DC Cinematic Universe? The movie is miscast completely. Snyder is a terrible director. Please someone agree with me so I know I am not crazy.

As opposed to the OLD DC Cinematic Universe? Only Gal is miscast. Maybe Jeremy Irons too. Everyone else seems spot on.

It doesn't not look like Batman.

Yet Bale's version, or any previous version did?

You missed his double negative there. ;)

Nice! I think he looks more like Batman than Nolan's version.

P.S Thumbs up for the Nova AV :D

@justthatkid: haters always hate. I don't know why some individuals believe bale was the best batman if it wasn't because of Heath Ledger there wouldn't have been a good Dark knight franchise.

Looks awesome. I don't know why people hate Snyder he's always loyal to the creator's ideas.

@pokeysteve: I can honestly say I rather have no DC Cinematic Film universe over one that is terrible. The only think DC is doing right is their TV Universe. I am happy Arrow is not connected to the garbage that is the Film Universe.

Seriously?Thats abit un-professional Ben started training as soon as the role was given to him

This exactly.

Posted by Riosishere

@flameboy298: Yeah I know and it already sucks. Man of Steel was terrible. It has way worse reviews than Superman returns. My opinion is that they are rushing their cinemetic universe. Marvel took their time and Snyder and DC are trying to play catch up. They are gonna announce all these movies this weekend at Comic Con and it will be a hot mess.

It is not the suit that they are using in the movie. Read this article http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/07/24/sdcc-2014-new-batman-photo-from-batman-v-superman-dawn-of-justice. That suit is only an for the art show and is only based on the design of the batsuit that zack is using. This means that the material from the real suit might be different.

Looks awesome!!

@riosishere: marvel didn't take their time, they banked on iron man and lucked out. Stop acting like Marvels success was a biblical foretold prophecy.

Also, Superman Returns makes MOS look like All-Star Superman .

That chin _^_...

Looks cool now. Looks like Bat.

DC Cinematic Universe, can you at least give me Nightwing movie? Please give me Nightwing movie in this century, okay... I want to live to watch it. :>

Not bad, but I would like more of the image
