A brand new behind-the-scenes photo from Batman v Superman shows off how intricate Ben Affleck’s mech suit is.
Batman v Superman was chock-full of iconic moments for Ben Affleck’s Batman, with the most notable being him donning the mech suit to fight Superman. Of course, fighting Superman is no easy task, so Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne quite astutely developed the mech suit to give himself an advantage.

One of the coolest parts about Ben Affleck’s mech suit is that the glowing white eyes are retained within the suit. CGI was most likely used to enhance the brightness and shine of the white eyes, but it’s certainly very inspiring to see the eyes be a part of actual costume.
With Ben Affleck now gone from the DC Extended Universe, it’s a shame that we won’t be able to see this specific rendition of the mech suit again as it’s one of the most inspired Batman looks ever put on the big screen. That being said, we’re still eternally grateful that we got an extended look at the iconic mech suit in Batman v Superman when the actual battle between the two superheroes happened.
