Batman V Superman New Image of Ben Affleck

Warner Bros. has released a new image for Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". This time we get an image of Batman, played by Ben Affleck, but it's a close-up, so don't expect to get any big details. We do, however, get a great shot of Affleck's chin. The studio also released a note about the production which contains some interesting details. You can read that after the jump. The film also stars Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher and Laurence Fishburne.
