New Batman v Superman Image Reveals Ben Affleck's Batsuit In All Its Glory
Considering the fact that we've already had two teasers, a pair of posters and a number of teaser images, it's slightly surprising that Ben Affleck's Batsuit still has a shroud of mystery around it. Thankfully, that shroud has been lifted thanks to a new image that hit the internet via an unlikely source, J-Posters. J-Posters claim that the photo is an exclusive, adding that it is the raw image that was used to create the IMAX poster, which was released yesterday and can be seen below. 

So, first up is the IMAX poster, which shows a stubbled Ben Affleck in what appears to be a substantial leather cowl.

As expected, the Batman v Superman Batsuit is a significant departure from the all black suits we have traditionally seen on the big screen, but it does bare a striking resemblance to an earlier batsuit, namely the one donned by Batman for the Arkham Asylum video game. 

As mentioned earlier, that cowl looks pretty significant and it's hard to imagine that it offers the most in terms of mobility, but it's certainly striking. I'm also a big fan of that dull metal utility belt, which is one of the most significant departures from the Arkham Asylum suit that featured a more traditional yellow belt. 

Earlier this week, Ben Affleck sent the DC rumor mill into a spin when he was photographed on the Toronto set of Suicide Squad, sparking rumors that either Batman would be making an appearance in David Ayer's movie, or that Jared Leto's Joker would have a cameo in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
