After a long period of speculation, it has finally been revealed – Ben Affleck’s Batman costume.
Putting aside the brief glimpses of the armoured Batsuit from the trailer, this version, with shorter ears and a more burly bat insignia on the chest, coupled with Affleck’s muscular frame, gives further merit to the theory that the storyline will draw heavily from Frank Millar’s The Dark Knight Returns.
Keep in mind that this is probably one of few chances that fans will have to see the suit in full colour – after Man Of Steel and The Dark Knight Trilogy, the film is likely to be set almost in black and white, with next-to-no colour, to emphasise the darker, grittier storyline.
It’s clear that eyes really do tell the story…although there’s something to be said for Affleck’s chin’s ability to convey stern determination.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released in cinemas on March 25th, 2016.
