When it was announced that Ben Affleck would be the new Batman in the movie Batman vs Superman (or Superman vs Batman--it hasn't been officially announced yet), the world had a hard time accepting it. We'd almost convinced ourselves it wasn't true...until today.

Today, Zach Snyder, who is directing the new Batman vs Superman movie, released the first photo of the new Batman and Batmobile. According to Forbes.com contributor Mark Hughes, "The suit appears to be the closest thing we’ve seen to the comic book suit before, with a tighter costume fit and a cowl that appears connected to the cloth of his cape."

Ok, ok, here is the REAL photo.

The real question is, do Batman aficionados like the new look?
Ben Affleck's Batman suit kind of looks like corduroy. I really hope it makes that cool swishing noise when he walks.— No, the other Amanda (@zanda674) May 13, 2014
The movie isn't expected to come out until 2016 which is almost a year later than originally planned.
The Batman Superman movie has been pushed back by nine months to 2016, to allow Ben Affleck time to suck more.— Ben Siemon (@BenjaminJS) January 18, 2014
A couple of weeks ago, Ben Affleck was in the news after he was kicked out of the Hard Rock Casino for counting cards. Apparently being Batman has gone to his head.
