The original cinematographer behind Zack Snyder’s Justice League has shared a stunning behind-the-scenes photo of Ben Affleck in full costume as Batman.
This past weekend, Zack Snyder’s Justice League cinematographer Fabian Wagner took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes photo from the DC team-up movie, featuring Ben Affleck suited up as Batman. The shot was taken during the scene in which Ben Affleck’s Batman and the rest of the Justice League members attempt to rescue Silas Stone and other S.T.A.R. Labs scientists from Steppenwolf and his forces.

Fabian Wagner served as the director of photography on Zack Snyder’s Justice League until Joss Whedon took over the project. Previously, in a comment on Instagram, Ares actor Nick McKinless revealed that there was apparently an entire fight sequence between Ares and a younger Darkseid when he first invaded Earth in the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League. The actor said he trained for four months to get in God of War shape for the now uncredited role in the movie.
Darkseid almost played a larger role in the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League and subsequent DC Extended Universe films. However, after Joss Whedon assumed directorial duties during post-production and oversaw extensive re-shoots for Justice League, Darkseid was removed from the theatrical cut and Warner Bros. reassessed their plans for future DCEU films following the underwhelming reviews and box office gross of the film.
In addition to scenes of a young Darkseid vs Ares and the other Greek Gods in the first invasion of Earth, Zack Snyder’s original 5 movie-arc for the DCEU was said to include the murder of Lois Lane and half the Justice League as well as Darkseid taking control of the heartbroken Superman with the Anti-Life Equation.
Ben Affleck was last seen as Batman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League is available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Stay tuned for the latest news on Ben Affleck, Zack Snyder and the future of the DC Extended Universe!
