The first picture of Ben Affleck as Batman has been released.

Zack Snyder, the director of the upcoming Man of Steel sequel featuring Affleck’s Dark Knight and Henry Cavill’s Superman, posted the photo on Tuesday.

“I shot this with my @Leica_Camera M Monochrom. #Batman #Batmobile #Gotham,” wrote Snyder, along with a picture of the comic book hero next to the Batmobile (see right and below).

Affleck was announced as Batman last summer.

There was immediate backlash — even some from other celebrities — about the casting of Affleck.

But here we are, with production getting underway and Affleck in the famous suit.
