"Batman vs. Superman" director Zack Snyder has released the first image of Ben Affleck in his Batsuit standing next to the Batmobile.
Snyder first released an image of the Batmobile on May 12, which soon followed the first official image of Affleck of the new Batsuit. Sadly, Snyder hasn't released costume images for Gal Gadot and Henry Cavill.
The "Man of Steel 2" director spoke with Forbes last April about the first time encounter with the new costumes. "Batman vs. Superman" is set to hit theaters on May 6, 2016.
"The thing also that's really fascinating for me is that, even just in the tests we've been doing, the costumes, right? You basically have Batman and Superman - and this is without Ben [Affleck] and Henry [Cavill] in the costumes, but just like the stand-ins, just testing to see what the costumes look like," Snyder told Forbes. "And you have them standing there and they're standing in the same shot - and then we have Wonder Woman, you know, all three of them in the same shot. Even just for a test, you really have to go, 'Wow, that's crazy!'"
"Not only is it the first time that I'm seeing them, it's the first time they've ever existed together on screen in a movie," he continued. "And that's kind of a huge deal. Even just Batman and Superman standing next to each other... [I]t's kind of epic. You do sort of sense the weight of the pop culture iconography jumping out of its skin when you're standing there looking at the two of them and Wonder Woman. It's crazy. But it's fun. I mean, I have the first photo, I've got it in my archive because I was like, 'Okay, I better keep this, it's gonna be worth something."
