Batman turns 75 this year, and the spotlight is on Ben Affleck.

Affleck was the subject of much chatter in the media and among online communities over whether he was right to fill the position previously held by Christian Bale.

But it doesn’t really matter, as the casting is official, and director Zack Snyder is making that clear by sharing new photos of the “Argo” star in the Batsuit.

On Thursday, he shared a close-up of Affleck as Batman, with a simple caption reading “#75” in honor of the anniversary.

This is not the first glimpse of the newly-designed suit, as Snyder shared that back in May, with Batman standing alongside the new Batmobile.

According to “USA Today,” fans will get the opportunity to get up close and personal with the newest version of the cape and cowl at San Diego’s Comic-Con this week.

What do you think of Affleck as Batman now that you’ve seen the suit? Let us know in the comments section below!
