Following yesterday’s teaser image, director Zack Snyder took to Twitter again today to reveal the first official image of Ben Affleck as Batman and the new Batmobile from Batman vs. Superman. Snyder tweeted “I shot this with my @Leica_Camera M Monochrom.”
In the black-and-white photo, Batman (Affleck), clearly inspired by Frank Miller’s comic book miniseries Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, stands alongside the new Batmobile in his cape and cowl. The vehicle appears to be a hybrid of the Corvette body from Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and the more recent Tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.

In Batman vs. Superman, Henry Cavill reprises his role as Superman/Clark Kent, joined by Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. The film also stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and reunites Man of Steel stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. The film is slated for release on May 6, 2016.
