The image was revealed by USA Today (opens in new tab) , who also spoke to Zack Snyder about the super-sequel. "I was in no rush to put Batman in the movie," Snyder says. "But on the other hand it seemed organic the way our story was unfolding to start to feather him in." Snyder also speaks about why he included a veteran Batman in his film rather than a fresh-faced Dark Knight ("It's cooler to see a crusty old Batman beating the snot out of guys.") and the method behind the madness of that V in the title ("keep it from being a straight 'versus' movie, even in the most subtle way.")

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice releases 29 April 2016.
