ben affleck batman batman vs superman

Yesterday, director Zack Snyder gave us a peek at the back end of the new Batmobile.  Today, he decided to give just a little more—after months of anticipation, the director of the currently-titled Batman Vs. Superman finally released a shot of Ben Affleck in the new batsuit, standing next to the Batmobile.

Don’t expect heavy details, but you do get a look at the new batsuit, which, with its stubby ears and less-armored look, heavily recalls the suit from Frank Miller’s seminal comic, The Dark Knight Returns, which is said to have influenced the upcoming film.   Compare the image above to this bit from Miller’s graphic novel:

Fairly similar, no?

Batman Vs. Superman is set for a May 6, 2016 release date.

What do you think of the new batsuit?
