Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel sequel/Justice League prequel Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is expected to have a big presence at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, with many even predicting that Snyder could even reveal the full cast for the Justice League franchise. As part of their 75th Anniversary of Batman celebrations, DC Comics is displaying a wide range of Batman images at Comic-Con, and Snyder has released a new image of Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight on Twitter as part of the celebration.

After the release of the first official image of Affleck in costume in May, the response was mixed. Many liked the dark nature of the image, while some others were less enthusiastic, with a few even concerned about whether Affleck will be able to properly turn his head while in costume. Hopefully Snyder screens some footage of Affleck in action at Comic-Con so fans can make an informed decision on whether or not the new costume works onscreen. Have a look for yourself below.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice also stars Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.
