Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder revealed what the Dark Knight is going to look like in 2016 on his Twitter account earlier today.

The first thing that jumps out is just how much this costume looks like Frank Miller’s Batman from The Dark Knight Returns.

Snyder has stated before that Ben Affleck’s Batman will older and more battle tested. Miller’s version is also famous for battling Superman at the end of The Dark Knight Returns.

I was not a fan of Man of Steel, and haven’t particularly been looking forward to Batman vs. Superman until now. The suit looks awesome. We’ll still have to wait a while for the actual movie. There are a lot of things that can still go wrong. But, this is a solid move for Snyder in bringing his Batman to the screen.
