The moment we've all been waiting for is finally here. Today, Zack Snyder released the first image of Ben Affleck as Batman from his upcoming Man of Steel sequel. Commence freaking out now.

Yesterday the director teased an image of the Batmobile covered in a tarp and hinted that he would unveil it today. It turns out Snyder wasn't content with simply breaking the Internet. He wanted to flat out obliterate it. The image, which was shot on the director's own Leica Camera, shows the Dark Knight standing next to his hot wheels in full-on brood mode. The suit is a far cry from Christopher Nolan's militaristic take, and seems more in line with the Batman from the comics, particularly Frank Miller's 1986 opus "The Dark Knight Returns." While the jury is still out on Affleck's take on the beloved character, he definitely fills out the spandex quite nicely. What do you guys think? Sound off below!

The tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman soars into theaters on May 6, 2016.
