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.

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

Nice looking Batman though. Like the DKR inspiration.

The Bat!

I like, digging the short ears. It seems with each reboot Bat's ears get smaller and smaller.

Though I'm curious to see if there is more to the image, kinda looks like a mouth and nose or wavy hair. Wonder Woman? A trinity pic would be an awesome way to show off Diana.

Yeah, I'm with you on this one. It's just such a hokey name. I understand that sometimes our beloved comics can bend towards the cheesy side of the spectrum, but "DAWN OF JUSTICE" just sounds so blah to me. It sounds like the SyFy channel knockoff of a superhero movie rather than the licensed studio version.

Tentatively hopeful.

I can't figure out what's going on with the eyes, are those lenses or are his eyes just closed? It's weird, but it just looks so freakin' cool I'm not even complaining

His eyes are closed in this and in the first pic they were also closed. I think that they are doing that because in the film they are going to add computer effects, to make him have white eyes and they don´t everyone to think that he is not going to have them.

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.

I don't think we will get much from DC atleast not BvS I don't think they'll be done filming until Later this year or early next year.

But atleast at next year's comic con we have BvS trailer to look forwards too

The look is fine. I was never a fan of Frank Miller's design for the character, but if you want an older Batman that's still built like a brick sh*t house, than that's the one you turn to for inspiration. My problem with it stems from the worry that, once again, Batman won't be able to turn his head in the costume.

@zzombie13: hokey is certainly a valid descriptor.

Why they couldn't call it Superman/Batman: World's Finest, I'll never know.

Posted by BR_Havoc

Think it looks good!

Posted by MannEffest

I'm still not looking forward to this movie… but HOLY WOW Ben Affleck looks fantastic as the B-Man!

Posted by Gotham331

Because non-comic fans don't know what world finest means.

It doesn't not look like Batman.

Love it!

I like the mask, still don't care for the man under it.

Don't worry, I hate the new DC Cinematic Universe too. They have so many great characters to use, but I hate the casting along with the overly depressing tone they have gone with so far. Man of Steel was so gloomy and depressing, that it made The Dark Knight look like a lighthearted romp.

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