Let the fanboy outrage begin!

Director Zack Snyder (“Watchmen”) has given Batman fans around the world a first glimpse at actor Ben Affleck in the Dark Knight’s cape and cowl, which he is donning for the still-untitled 2016 Batman/Superman movie.

“I shot this with my @Leica_Camera M Monochrom,” Snyder said of the dark black and white photo, which also provides a sneak peek at the new Batmobile.

The Batman/Superman film is shaping up to be an epic Hollywood affair that will see Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprise their “Man of Steel” roles of Clark Kent/Superman and Lois Lane, respectively. In addition to Affleck, the cast will be joined by Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg).

Snyder has also reportedly been tapped to also direct the “Justice League” movie, which would unite Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman with heroes such as Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter.
