A new image of Ben Affleck as Batman has been released online, not long after director Zack Snyder tweeted a pic of Henry Cavill looking more Star Wars than Superman.

Fans keen to see Affleck's physique will be disappointed. The image is a close-up shot of the actor's partly-masked, stubbled face, as he looks downward - in thought, on Gotham, who knows?

The image is part of a 75th anniversary montage of Batman images created for Comic-Con. After speculation, DC Entertainment confirmed it was the indeed a Affleck's version of Caped Crusader who will appear in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

"Yes, as fans have started pointing out, within the dozens of photos and illustrations on the wall is a brand new image of Batman from the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," a post on DCComics.com blog read.

"The filmmakers wanted to include this new cinematic version of the Dark Knight in the anniversary mosaic so it could be discovered by fans."

Not even 24 hours before, the Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder also gave fans a glimpse of Cavill as Superman, although not what they were expecting.

Snyder tweeted a pic of Cavill's Man of Steel dressed in a hooded cloak, holding a red lightsaber at ready, with his Superman suit just visible beneath.

 

 

The curious post came with the hashtag and has been published just ahead of the Warner Bros Comic-Con panel on Saturday.
