SDCC '14: Zack Snyder reveals new image of Ben Affleck as Batman for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"
Just like the title of the post says, director Zack Snyder took to Twitter and unveiled the latest picture of Hollywood actor and director Ben Affleck as the new man to don the cape and cowl and play Batman, in the upcoming superhero film crossover that sees him come face to face with Henry Cavill's Superman in 2016 in the DC Cinematic Universe movie - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
In Snyder's tweet, the "Man of Steel" director simply placed the hashtag "#75" with the image, as a direct nod to Batman's 75th Anniversary this year. The cape and cowl of Affleck's Batsuit also appears in this year's Comic-Con (as featured in this post) as one of the many highlights in the DC Comics booth, and is also spotlighted in this feature in USA Today's official website on The Dark Knight's 75 years, as well as an interview with DC Entertainment co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio, who give their insights on Affleck's cowl and the legacy of the Caped Crusader in film and beyond.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sees release on May 6, 2016
