Ben Affleck as Batman

Well many of my hardcore comic nerd brethren were still hoping it was an awful joke and that Zack Snyder really didn’t cast Ben Affleck as Batman for the upcoming “Batman vs. Superman” movie but it’s getting more real by the day.

The first official photo of Affleck’s Batman hit he web today: NEW BATMAN

So, what do you think?

For those not as well versed in Batman lore as myself, I’ll tell you I kinda dig it. It’s a lot like the reinvented Batman from the 1986 comic series “The Dark Knight Returns”, which was written by Frank Miller, the same guy who did “Sin City” and “300”.  Here’s what that Batman looks like.

Obviously the best part of the outfit is NO BAT NIPPLES! Again, thank you for that Joel Shumacher…
