New Photos: Ben Affleck In The Batsuit From 'Batman V Superman'

Fans first saw the Ben Affleck Batman suit in a cryptic, black and white image next to the Batmobile. Then there was a shadowy close up on the cowl. The full Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer revealed more of the full body, then we saw the full suit, but again bathed in shadow. That was followed by a video with all three costumes. By that point, it was obvious Zack Snyder and his team were being careful to show the full suit, giving fans just enough to keep them guessing.

They probably still want to do be mysterious but leave it to the Internet to foil those plans. Two new images of Ben Affleck's Batman have now arrived online. One is the Batman v Superman IMAX poster image, with the distracting Superman symbol removed, and then there's the same shot, but from a step back and in full color, leaving the whole suit up to intense scrutiny. Check out the latest images of the Ben Affleck Batman suit below.

Here are the two images, first is the full close up from the poster, followed by the full color image via JPosters:

Ben Affleck Batman Suit - Black and White & Color

Obviously, this is a suit very heavily influenced by The Dark Knight Returns. The grey colors, the wide Batsymbol, the modest ears. The utility belt is a bit darker than that comic, though, and the muscles built into the suit are different. But that's become a necessity in big screen batsuits, so it makes sense.

What I like most about this suit is that it's different enough from the previous movie versions to stand on its own, but simultaneously borrows some of the best facets. Nevertheless, seeing it under full, blown out light – and in color – it loses something.

What do you think of the Ben Affleck Batman suit?
