In celebration of his 75th anniversary, Comic-Con has a Batman exhibit showing costumes and props from all the movies — including the next one. Here's the cape and cowl Ben Affleck will wear as the Caped Crusader in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice!

You'll note that it's very much black, has short ears, and doesn't have the sharp, angular corners of most movie Batsuits. Here's what DC co-publisher Jim Lee had to say about the design in USA Today:

Lee, an artist who's drawn the Caped Crusader in Batman and All-Star Batman & Robin runs, takes a more critical look at the design of the Affleck costume and likes what he sees. The cape offers "a very low drag coefficient," he says matter-of-factly, and up close the masked cowl has a faux leather effect and is not rife with ridges and sharp edges like other movie costumes.

Plus, he adds, "it's got this boxer's physique to it, which suggests that Batman's more of a brawler than he's been before."


Honestly, with its more natural-looking eyebrow ridges, it looks a bit like a less goofy version of Adam West's cowl from the Batman '66 TV show, which I'm surprisingly okay with. Here's a close-up of the cowl:
