Ben Affleck as Batman has only been officially introduced in one photo tease from Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder on Twitter. Now, a fan is getting everyone excited with an awesome drawing of the Caped Crusader.
Snyder did an fantastic job of keeping Batman away from eager fans even while filming out in the streets of Detroit in the summer of last year and Chicago in the fall. This art concept is one of the best work by fans we’ve seen to date — and they’re all over it.
As the movie is still more than a very long year away from release, we can only pick up bits and pieces that the studio is so generous to slowly release. In the meantime, fans are using their talents to imagine what a more mature Batman will look like in the person of Ben Affleck.
The 42-year-old actor fits perfectly in Snyder’s Batman, an older version that what we’ve seen in the past, most recently portrayed by Christian Bale in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy. Even though we didn’t see any hints as to what exactly Batman will look like this time, we did get some photos of the Batmobile.
Warner Bros. is going all out to revamp the none-less impressive vehicle Bale used for Nolan’s trilogy, which was not too shabby at all. In this vein, it is not hard to imagine its owner will also see a remake of sorts, and this fan art is not a far-fetched reality.
Take a look at the image, shared on Twitter, that comes from someone by the name of Garnabiuth. This after a few photos of what some think may be the actual suit Affleck will wear for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hit the net.

As you can see there is no shortage of imagination from this particular artist, but it has caught people’s attention because of the obvious talent displayed in the drawing. If this is close to the reality of what Ben Affleck will look like as Batman, then we’re in for a treat.
The Oscar winning actor/director has build up some serious muscle, which was evident in his appearance at the 87th Academy Awards ceremony last Sunday. Nobody really knows when we will finally get to see Ben Affleck in his Batsuit, but we got the first official reveal of Aquaman recently, and another revelation is expected soon.
