Since the official casting announcement last year led many to have various mixed reactions, a lot of people have been anxiously waiting to see the first official photo of actor/ director Ben Affleck donning the cape and cowl and suiting up as Batman for Zack Snyder's upcoming sequel to his Superman reboot flick "Man of Steel", which hasn't been officially titled and is still going under the common alias of "Batman Vs Superman". Opposite Henry Cavill's Clark Kent/ Superman, Affleck will play Bruce Wayne/ Batman, and the characterization is said to be a Bats in his 40's and bearing a similar role to that of an older Dark Knight in Frank Miller's seminal classic Batman story - Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Despite the mixed reactions, Affleck's friends and fellow stars Kevin Smith, Matt Damon, and even wife Jennifer Garner have seen him in the suit, and gave nothing but positive remarks for it.
Let's not forget that also joining the Man of Steel and Caped Crusader is Fast and the Furious franchise star Gal Gadot, who was before the end of 2013 as Wonder Woman. She, along with Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth round up the big line of characters appearing in this mega sequel, so patience should be a virtue.
Hoever, excitement is building over word that the very first photo of Affleck as Batman and Gadot as Wonder Woman may appear before the end of February, as the delay from 2015 to 2016 for "Bats Vs Supes" has pushed production to a longer filming schedule. The news comes from Mark Hughes, a Forbes Blogger who tweeted the following:
Okay, fans, get ready, a bat-suit & WW reveal seems to be imminent, as in possibly days away!
