Just one day after tweeting an image of the new Batmobile, Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder has posted a new image from the set of his upcoming Man of Steel sequel/Batman reboot/Justice League pilot/Aquaman sidequel.

The photo shows a shadowy image of the new Batman costume, as worn by a human being who appears to be Ben Affleck. I say “appears to be” because the only exposed body part you can really see is the chin — although local Affleck scholar Jeff Labrecque insists that it is definitely Affleck chin:

The costume continues the trend of shrinking costume ears that began with Batman Begins. In some respects, though, it’s a bit more old-fashioned than the outfits worn by Christian Bale. Whereas the Nolanized Batman preferred functional kevlar-mesh body armor, this new outfit looks more reminiscent of the skintight-rubber preferred by the Burton films. Also, Affleck appears to have stolen Bane’s biceps.
