Ben Affleck as Batman: Zack Snyder unveils new pic on Batman's 75th birthday

ben-affleck-batman-75th.jpgOn the 75th anniversary of Batman's first appearance as a comics character, director Zack Snyder unveiled a new photo of Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader from "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice."

And darn it if the character doesn't look like he's pushing 75 himself.

Unlike the first photo Snyder posted of Affleck in the Batsuit, the new one -- which Snyder captioned on Twitter with just a "#75" -- is in color. It's a tight profile shot of a solemn-looking Affleck wearing the cowl, very nicely lit from behind and above.

But Affleck's stubble and grave expression, coupled with the furrowed-brow design of the cowl, combine to make Batman look a little long in the tooth. Here's the full shot from Snyder's Twitter feed:

What do you think of the photo? And how excited are you for the 2016 release of "Batman vs. Superman"?
