UPDATE: First Image of Ben Affleck as Batman & His Batmobile!

Yesterday, director of the upcoming Batman vs. Superman Zack Snyder tweeted a picture of what fans could easily assume is the new Batmobile that will appear in the film.  However, the vehicle was covered by a tarp, with the caption “Could be time to pull the tarp…Tomorrow?” leading to speculation that we could see the Batmobile’s full design today.  For a refresher (although how could it stray from anyone’s mind?) see yesterday’s teaser below:

Initial thoughts?  Obviously from what we’ve learned so far, it seems like Bats vs. Supes will receive simply love-or-hate feedback right up until the day it hits theaters (and potentially afterwards).  Personally,  this suit to me feels very refreshing.  Not as armor-built as Nolan’s Batsuit, and seems to have a lot of influence drawn from the classic Dark Knight Returns comics.  The Batmobile looks like a pure hybrid of the Tim Burton design and the Christopher Nolan tumbler.

Found on Facebook is an edited version of the reveal photo, changing the tone and making it a bit lighter.  You can see from the edited pic below that the suit is in fact a gray color, and Affleck looks to be very well-toned (someone you’d hope would pair up against Kal-El in battle).

Batman vs. Superman is set to hit theaters on May 6th, 2016, directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, & Laurence Fishburne.
