Comic-Con: New Photo of Ben Affleck in Batman Costume from ‘Dawn of Justice’

By July 24, 2014

We just wrote about how Ben Affleck’s Batman cape and cowl are on display on the Comic-Con show floor, but now director Zack Snyder has tweeted a new photo of star Ben Affleck in the iconic suit:


The 75, of course, is representative of the fact that this year marks Batman’s 75th anniversary. Seems like yesterday would have been the proper day to release this one – seeing as how it was Batman Day and everything – but hey, at least we have a new look at Batfleck. This follows another pic he tweeted last night of Affleck’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Henry Cavill suited up as Superman, but with a catch: this time, he’s also wearing a dark robe and rocking a lightsaber.


What does that Super Jedi photo mean? Probably nothing – just a way to have some fun with the Comic-Con fans. The real question is: will fans take this new Batfleck image and create another round of “Sad Batman” memes like they did the first time? We’ll have to wait and see.
