Zach Snyder Tweets Out First Look of Ben Affleck as 'Batman'

(CBS SF) - Director Zach Snyder has tweeted the first image of Ben Affleck as Batman in the highly anticipated Superman/Batman movie. A day after tweeting out a photo of a somewhat hidden Batmobile. Snyder teased "pulling back" the tarp the following day, but few expected the reveal of Affleck as Batman.

The sequel to 2013's "Man of Steel" starring Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck's casting caused some controversy with many comic book fans. Hopefully, this image can calm the nerves of many hardcore Batman fans. The Berkeley-born, Boston-raised Affleck has since shrugged off the criticism after all the backlash had died down.

Now how do we talk Snyder into casting Stephen Amell as "The Arrow" in his "Justice League" movie?
