The cowl worn by Ben Affleck’s Batman in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently on display at Comic-Con’s show floor.

Ben Affleck's Batman Costume At Comic-Con

The cowl – essentially Batman’s cape – is just the first Batman V. Superman tease making an appearance at this year’s Comic-Con. The look is on display to celebrate Batman’s 75th birthday, which was celebrated during the preview night on Wednesday.

“It just brought the reality of the fact that we’re finally going to see a movie where Superman and Batman are going to be side-by-side. That’s a fanboy dream, and the fact that the costume’s here just makes the movie even more real,” commented DC Entertainment co-publisher Dan DiDio.

Also on display are the costumes worn by Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale, all actors who have starred as Bruce Wayne in the past.

Fans have already gotten a glimpse of Affleck wearing the infamous superhero’s cape in a photo shared by director Zack Snyder in May.

With Comic-Con officially underway, many expect Snyder and, most likely, Henry Cavill (Superman) and Affleck to surprise audiences at the Warner Brother’s panel on Saturday. Though nothing has been confirmed, Snyder has been teasing fans on Twitter, posting a fanboy dream photo of Cavill as Superman as a Jedi on Wednesday.

Thursday, Snyder followed up his #SuperJedi photo with a picture of Affleck’s Batman profile – or Batfleck as DiDio calls him.
