Earlier in the week, Zak Snyder revealed the first image of Ben Affleck as Batman in the Man of Steel sequel, stood in front of the new Batmobile.


I really like the new look. It’s exactly what I hoped for when he was cast; a brooding middle age Bruce Wayne with a lot on his mind. The new logo on his chest has yet to warm on me, but this is a minor detail. The silhouette is exactly right and the mask couldn’t fit better. The new batmobile looks great. I especially like Wonder Woman’s jet in the back fo the shot.

One of the consequences of this has been the sad batman meme. The internet has gone wild over taking this image out of context and the results are hilarious! I’ve included a few of the best below, enjoy!
