Will that tarp come off tomorrow?
Ben Affleck took a lot of criticism when he was announced as the new Batman, but it’s all looking worth it now that the company car is ready for collection. Zak Snyder gave us all a sneak peak on Twitter, and the reaction to the new Batmobile has been wholly positive, it seems.

“Could be time to pull the tarp...Tomorrow?” wrote Snyder, who is directing the film dubbed ‘Batman v Superman’, the follow up to Man of Steel which is set to feature the hugely anticipated battle between the two superheroes.
Accompanying the Tweet was a peek at the car itself, mostly concealed in a smoky black & white picture. In fact, we can only see the rear wheels really, but that doesn’t stop this teaser whetting the appetite sufficiently. Hopefully Snyder comes through and takes the tarp off there tomorrow, giving us a look at Batman’s A-to-B in all its glory.
It doesn’t look like Snyder will be changing the vehicle too much from the Nolan days, but as for the actual character of Batman, well there might be a few subtle changes there. “I don’t want to give away too much, but the idea for the new Batman is to redefine him in a way that doesn’t compete with the Bale and Chris Nolan Batman but still exists within the Batman canon. It will be an older and wiser version, particularly as he relates to Henry Cavill’s Superman character,” explained Affleck to EW in December last year.
‘Batman v Superman’ or ‘Man of Steel 2’ is set for release on May 6, 2016. But don’t pay too much attention to that particular date, as it’s already changed a couple times and chances are it will again. May 6 is also when Captain America 3 is set to be released…
