Ben Affleck Sports Gray Hair In ‘Batman V Superman’ Set Pictures

Ben Affleck was on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice today (August 4) in Detroit, Michigan. One fan was able to capture some images of the actor dressed up as Bruce Wayne, along with one important detail that points to a significantly older Dark Knight than we are used to seeing in the movies.

The Inquisitr previously shared images from a destroyed Metropolis set located in front of a fictional Wayne Enterprises building. There was plenty of rubble and destroyed police cars, but no sign of either Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne or Batman and Henry Cavill as Clark Kent or Superman. That changed Monday with some video and pictures captured by University of Missouri assistant professor Samuel Otten, who just happened to be present during filming.

Otten was able to capture the following images of Affleck dressed in business attire and talking with director Zack Snyder.

He also shared the following shakey-cam video from the set, where he described a scene of children holding hands and exiting the building that serves as the front for Wayne Enterprises. Presumably, they were being rescued, escorted out as part of whatever massive fight involving Batman or Superman partially destroyed the building.

If you look closely at the Affleck’s hairline at his temples, you can see distinct gray coloring. This coincides with the overall theme of Batman v Superman borrowing elements from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns comic book saga. A 55-year-old Batman battled with a still youthful Superman on the streets of Gotham after coming out of retirement in the legendary series.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released to theaters on May 6, 2016. It is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill (Clark Kent / Superman), Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne / Batman), Gal Gadot (Diana Prince / Wonder Woman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred), Ray Fisher (Victor Stone / Cyborg), Holly Hunter, and Scoot McNairy.
