Behold -- it's "Batfleck and the Batmobile!"

Those are director's Zack Snyder's words, posted on Tuesday, May 13, above a first-look photo of Ben Affleck as Batman in his new movie, tentatively titled "Batman vs. Superman." (see a larger version, below)

"I shot this with my @Leica_Camera M Monochrom. #Batman #Batmobile #Gotham," Snyder tweeted with the picture, which shows Affleck in his Batman costume with his face turned down beside a vehicle.

A day earlier, the director teased fans with another Twitter photo, which shows what appears to be a partially covered Batmobile.

"Could be time to pull the tarp...Tomorrow?" he said.

"Batman vs. Superman" is set for release in 2016 and is the sequel to "Man of Steel," which starred Henry Cavill as Superman / Clark Kent. He reprises his role in the new movie, which also stars Israeli actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
