A closer look at stubbly Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has been revealed in honor of Batman's 75th Anniversary and he's looking quite pensive. Director Zack Snyder simply tweeted #75 along with the new image. It's being featured at this week's San Diego Comic-Con as part of the Anniversary Montage Wall.

From DC Comic's blog, "Batman is a major presence at San Diego Comic-Con. He’s been seen in comics, film, TV, games, toys and clothing, and it’s all represented within the DC Entertainment booth, particularly in the Batman 75th Anniversary montage wall created for the show."

Here is the "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" press note...

Filming is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the highly anticipated action adventure from director Zack Snyder, starring Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as BruceWayne/Batman.

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from “Man of Steel,” Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film.

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”is written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

Principal photography will take place on location at Michigan Motion Picture Studios and on location in and around Detroit, Michigan; Illinois; Africa; and the South Pacific.

Set to open worldwide on May 6, 2016, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, Batman characters created by Bob Kane, and Wonder Woman created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment.

Okay, Mr. Snyder, now can we get a look at Wonder Woman? Please?
