Justice League director Zack Snyder has unveiled Batman’s new “Tactical” Batsuit. The filmmaker has shared a picture of the latest armor created for The Dark Knight which will be worn by Ben Affleck in the forthcoming DC Comics movie.
Alongside a picture of Affleck as Batman suited up, standing alongside what appears to be a redesigned Batmobile, Snyder wrote on Twitter: “Homestretch. Last day filming Batman in the new Tactical Batsuit (sic)”

Eagle-eyed fans will notice The Caped Crusader is wearing high-tech goggles over his eyes and that the suit has armored plating.
Affleck stars in the film alongside Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Ray Fisher as Cyborg.
DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns recently revealed that Justice League won’t be so “gritty”, following the negative criticism Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice received as the story has moved on and Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Comics have decided to make the ensemble movie “hopeful and optimistic”.
Speaking to The Wall Street Journal newspaper, Johns – who is working as a producer on the superhero film – said: “Mistakenly in the past I think the studio has said, ‘Oh, DC films are gritty and dark and that’s what makes them different.’ That couldn’t be more wrong. It’s a hopeful and optimistic view of life. Even Batman has a glimmer of that in him. If he didn’t think he’d make tomorrow better, he’d stop.”
Affleck also previously stated that Bruce Wayne and his alter ego Batman will have a “dark” sense of humor in the movie. The 44-year-old actor said: “He’s a little bit more sardonic, humor, a little more irony. He’s a little more of a man on a mission this time. As opposed to being so full of anger because of what happened at the Black Zero Event. That kind of rage that possessed him. And now he’s on a mission to get this group together. To constitute this League. But, more of that sort of Bruce Wayne, wry, ironic gallows humor comes out.”
