The first image of Ben Affleck’s version of Batman has been revealed.

Director Zack Snyder posted an image from the forthcoming “Man of Steel” sequel on Twitter this afternoon.

In the image, the Caped Crusader stands alongside the latest iteration of the Batmobile, which Snyder knowingly teased yesterday:


The untitled “Batman vs. Superman” film will shoot this summer for release in 2016, setting up the now-confirmed “Justice League” feature.

Aside from Henry Cavill’s Superman and Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot will make her debut as Wonder Woman in the flick, potentially leading into her own spinoff feature.

The film also stars Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and returning stars Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne.
