After teasing with a photo of a Batmobile under a tarp on Monday, Snyder shared the above the following day, simply adding, “shot this with my @Leica_Camera M Monochrom. #Batman #Batmobile #Gotham.”

PeekYou not being a company to shy away from the nerdiest of trends, you can see where we’ve blogged of Snyder’s already-announced 2018 follow-up to the above-referenced Batman vs. Superman here, and sink your teeth into a juicy PeekScore list assessing the relative digital footprints of the various gentlemen who have played the caped crusader on the big screen, here.

Update: And now the movie has a title, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

To close, from last September, is Ben w/ Jimmy Fallon discussing the backlash prompted by the announcement of his casting.
