Ben Affleck's Batman: Zack Snyder posts first picture with Batman vs Superman batmobile
Fans were teased with the first glimpse of the Batman vs Superman batmobile this morning and now, a photo has emerged showing Ben Affleck in his batsuit staring down ominously at the iconic vehicle.
Director Zack Snyder followed up his initial picture with the dark image of Affleck as Batman in his forthcoming Man of Steel sequel (above).
Just yesterday, the 48-year-old US director tweeted a photo of the hero's car covered with a grey tarpaulin, along with a caption reading: "Could be time to pull the tarp...tomorrow?"
Not one to disappoint his followers, Snyder followed through with his promise, although the batmobile is still not visible in full.
Patrick Tatopoulos, known for his work on 300: Rise of an Empire, has designed the new car, Variety reports.
Both photos are gloomy and menacing in style - perhaps a hint at what moviegoers can expect when Batman vs Superman hits cinemas in May 2016.
The upcoming film also stars Henry Cavill as Superman, with Jesse Eisenberg playing arch nemesis Lex Luthor and Israeli actress Gal Gadot in the role of Wonder Woman.

Last summer, Man of Steel was one of the biggest hits, grossing over $290 million at the US box office. But when the casting for Batman vs Superman was announced, fans were unimpressed.
Affleck was not a popular choice for Batman and the decision to select him as Christian Bale’s successor garnered a great deal of criticism.
Snyder responded to the outrage in an effort to reassure comic book fans, telling Hero Complex: “I understand the canon, I’m not crazy. I know what these characters need from a mythological standpoint."
