Zack Snyder has posted a new image of Ben Affleck in character as Batman.

The picture was shared by the Man Of Steel director on Twitter to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the DC Entertainment character, which was declared Batman Day.

Captioned #75, the dark image showed a close-up side profile shot of the Oscar-winning actor in his Dark Knight cowl, in reference to the upcoming sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

It's the latest picture to be shared by Zack, who also tweeted a shot of Henry Cavill dressed as a Jedi Knight version of Superman a day ago.

"#SuperJedi," he wrote.

Zack, who is returning to the director's chair for the follow-up, previously gave a sneak preview of Ben's Batman posing alongside his Batmobile.

Gal Gadot will play Wonder Woman in the sequel, alongside Jesse Eisenberg as Superman's arch-nemesis Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Jeremy Irons as Batman's butler Alfred.

Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will reprise their roles as Lois Lane, Perry White and Clark Kent's mother respectively from the first movie.

Meanwhile, Dwayne Johnson, who is rumoured to play Shazam, continued to drop hints about his mysterious DC role when he posted a picture of Shazam and Black Adam with Superman on Twitter, accompanied by the words: "Someone's gonna get it."

Treat such as gourmet food, beautiful clothes and intriguing books are investments in your happiness.
