DC Comics celebrated 75 years of Batman with a new picture of Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader. The teaser photo was released at San Diego Comic-Con and features a brooding Batman akin to Christian Bale’s take on the superhero.
Affleck is facing harsh criticism from fans who are doubting his ability to step into the role. He joked early on with Jimmy Fallon on Late Night saying, “I saw the announcement. I looked at this thing. I looked down at the first comment. It’s like ‘Ben Affleck is going to be Batman.’ The first one just goes, ‘Nooooooooooooooooo!'”
DC may be trying to break through this type of fan hesitation by teasing out the future iteration of Batman.
