First Look: Ben Affleck Suits Up as Batman and Looks Insanely Buff

By  | 

Move over Christian Bale — there's a new Batman in town! Though the casting of Ben Affleck in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie last year caused a bit of controversy, this first look photo is sure to silence all those naysayers.

The film's director shared the very first photo of the Oscar winner as the Caped Crusader on Twitter Tuesday, which you can check out right here:


Um, first of all. It looks amazing. Second? That CAN'T be Ben's body can it? There's gotta be some special effects or padding or something, because there's no way he's that buff IRL.

This sneak peek comes after Zack shared a tease of the brand new Batmobile on Monday:


It'll be awhile before we actually see Batman vs. Superman come to life, as it's slated for release on May 6, 2016. It'll also star Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Louise Lane, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and newcomer Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Though plot details are being kept under wraps, we're sure it'll be an action-packed blockbuster.
