We still have no idea what it will be called yet but director of whatever the next Man of Steel movie ends up being titled, Zack Snyder, has shown off the first glimpse of Ben Affleck in his new Batsuit standing alongside the new Batmobile  (which he teased earlier from under its tarpaulin on set). Initial reactions have noted the shorter ears and the stripped down grubby and bulky look compared to the tech-heavy militarised Christopher Nolan trilogy outfit.

The film will reach cinemas May 6 2016, having been pushed back from 2015.
