Hidden amongst the other photos in a montage wall for the Batman 75th Anniversary expo at San Diego Comic-Con was a closeup of Ben Affleck as Batman in the upcoming epic Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. You can’t expect to pull a fast one on fans of the World’s Greatest Detective, but DC stated on their comics blog: “The filmmakers wanted to include this new cinematic version of the Dark Knight in the anniversary mosaic so it could be discovered by fans! The cast and crew behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice are excited to be a part of the 75th celebration!”
The picture shows off a very brooding pose of Mr. Affleck as the Batman, again with those smaller ears on the cowl similar to the Dark Knight Returns costume. The cape and cowl combo is also on display at SDCC.
Although this picture is oddly similar to the way that Batman penciller Jason Fabok has been drawing the Dark Knight. How oddly prescient.
“Making you a better geek, one post at a time!”
