NEW YORK – Director Zack Snyder has posted the first photo of Ben Affleck as Batman in the forthcoming “Man of Steel” sequel.
The picture comes one day after Snyder teased Batman fans with a picture of the new Batmobile, which was covered in a tarp.
Affleck is set to star as Batman in “Batman vs. Superman.” Henry Cavill will play Superman in the film, with Gal Gadot set as Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg in the role of Lex Luthor. Warner Bros. is set to release the future blockbuster on May 6, 2016.
“Batman vs. Superman” will serve as a launching pad for the studio’s Justice League movie, which will bring together Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and other DC Comics superheroes in a way similar to “Marvel’s The Avengers.”
