Ironhead Studio has unveiled new photos that offer fans a behind-the-scenes look at how Ben Affleck’s cowl was crafted for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Ben Affleck made his first appearance as Bruce Wayne in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While the film itself received mixed reviews, Ben Affleck’s portrayal of the DC Comics hero was praised by many and the costume he wore is often regarded as the most comic-accurate Batman outfit to date.
Last month, Ironhead Studio shared behind-the-scenes photos showcasing the creative process behind the Batman cowl and Ben Affleck’s first costume fitting. Around the same time, the studio unveiled additional images that offer a glimpse at how the cowl was created as well as Ben Affleck’s first cowl movement test.

A historic moment. The first Batcowl movement test. Jose was happy to be one of the three people in the room for this fitting. From this moment, it would be another two years before the rest of the world would get to see Batman turn his head for the first time while wearing the Batcowl. "To say I was pleased would be an understatement. It was kind of like winning the lottery, but not being able to share it with anybody for years." -Jose Fernandez #batman #batcowl #headturn #batmanvsuperman #benaffleck #batfleck #batsuit #frankmiller #costume #superhero #spfx #specialfx #cowl #sculpture #art #design #behindthescenes #wonderwoman #galgadot #superman #henrycavill #thecapedcrusader #thedarkknight #bat #comicbooks #dccomics #warnerbros #wb #joseismaelfernandez #ironheadstudio

Of course, Ben Affleck’s time as the Caped Crusader has officially come to an end after just two appearances in Batman v Superman and Justice League as well as a cameo in Suicide Squad. Now, Robert Pattinson will portray the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and while a previous rumor suggested this incarnation of the character would be a younger version of Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader, this turned out to be false as there will be no connection between the two.
Here is the official synopsis for Batman v Superman:
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Directed Zack Snyder, Batman v Superman stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Holly Hunter.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Stay tuned for the latest news on Ben Affleck and the future of the DC Extended Universe!
