While any actual news regarding Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice likely won’t be leaked until Warner Bros. takes over Comic-Con’s Hall H this Saturday, convention-goers—and everyone with an Internet connection—don’t have to wait until then to get another look at the rubber that Ben Affleck will be grimacing in. The new cape and cowl has already been spotted on the convention floor, its emptiness a mirror for Batman’s weary soul. And now the studio has released this second image of Affleck wrinkling his costume with sadness, looking every bit the Caped Crease-ader.
Of course, like the Gotham populace that doesn’t understand him, the Internet mostly responded by pointing out Ben Affleck’s impressive butt-chin. And as I am a jackass who lacks the maturity to talk seriously about comic-book movie costumes, instead I just started Photoshopping things on Batman’s butt-chin. I’m also on a lot of cold medicine. For all I know I might be dreaming right now.
Say, did anyone consider that this photo might also be stealth marketing for Nicki Minaj’s new album? I did.
Fellas! Fellas! I like Batman’s chin and I cannot lie. You other brothers can’t deny that when Batman walks in with an itty-bitty waist and a round thing on his face you get sprung.
Turn around! Stick it out! Even white boys got to shout, “Baby got bat,” etc.
Anyway, this was dumb. If you want to Photoshop your own dumb Batman image, send the finished product here and maybe I’ll post it tomorrow.
UPDATE: I asked and you delivered. Again and again. Please stop delivering. I’m posting the best of these and the ones that weren’t just giant pictures of dicks. We will now consider the matter closed.
Tad Shurtz gets to work.
Nick Fancher takes us back to that classic summer of 2013.
Tity Boi has seen the future, and it will be Batman’s butt-chin.
Niall Dunne shows us what Batman will look like after passing through Japanese censors.
“Trickster,” like many, notes some similarities with another famous comic character.
“Natty” is now just openly pandering to A.V. Club commenters.
“ganews” adds some much-needed modesty.
“Steve Smith” is apparently an alias for Vicki Vale, because Alfred just showed him the Batcave.
And finally, “jinxed” brings it all home with what was probably inevitable.
