Update: After this post went live, Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder tweeted a glimpse of the front view of the coming Batmobile with Ben Affleck as Batman alongside. We've added the tweet below. Hat tip to BipDBo.

Zack Snyder is directing the movie Batman vs. Superman and has decided to give us a glimpse of the Batmobile the Caped Crusader will use to counter the Man of Steel's alien powers. Let loose on Twitter on May 12, Snyder's caption wonders if the tarp should be pulled back "Tomorrow?", but that sounds more like a teaser than a prediction - the movie isn't due to be released until May 6, 2016.

Not that we can tell much from the shot above, but the shape looks like a combo of Michael Keaton's Bat-turbine ride in front and Christian Bale's more recent Tumbler in back. Driven by Batman Ben Affleck, it will undoubtedly be one of the biggest stars among a cast that also includes Henry Cavill, Lawrence Fishburne, Jesse Eisenberg and Gal Gadot.

      after the Tumbler... A vehicle that really had a purpose and was actually a driveable tank, this is a stepback to a more "stylish" and useless batmobile.

        I dunno. I like the fact that this Batmobile's wraparound windshield gives Bats a better-than-fair chance of seeing out the front of it. As for rear visibility, Raul Julia said it best when he said, "What's behind me is not important." It also looks like this Batmobile might be capable of only taking up ONE lane of traffic, while still having more than enough beefed-up suspension bits to leap off an overpass and land in one piece.

        Since it's just fantasy, I prefer the more stylish Batmobile. But these super hero films are played out. Hollywood is out of film ideas.

      As far a Batman movies go, Christian Bale was one of the best to play Batman. I’m not sold on Ben Affleck being Batman. This might be one I’ll forego watching at theaters.

      Where's the jet nozzle for the afterburner? It's weird to see a Batmobile without one, but the photos are pretty dark to hide the car's details. Whatever the case, I hope this Batmobile can actually perform practical effects and stunts like Nolan's Tumbler could and not be just a static prop product that moves by use of CGI.

      I think it's a mistake doing another Batman movie after the last trilogy. Batman Begins was excellent, but the Dark night possibly redefined the genre. The Dark Night Rises probably would have been considered better if it had not followed The Dark Night. My guess is that Snyder's effort will flop. Batman movies should be retired for a while. Let it breathe. Explore some new ideas for a change. The Tumbler was a real vehicle and CGI in the action sequences was very minimal by current standards. BTW, this Batmobile looks to be all CGI. In my opinion, that's a bad sign.

        I agree 100%. Besides, did they not see ben affleck in daredevil? I can't see how this movie won't be a major letdown to batman fans.

          The R rated DareDevil was the much better version but it's tough to make a great movie from what was essentially a less-than mediocre script. I really can't say I blame Affleck for that any more than I can honestly blame Ryan Reynolds for "Green Lantern" (actually, I think Reynolds was the best part of that movie). Frankly, I'm more concerned about some of the casting decisions and the overstuffing of heroes in what should be a Superman sequel. "The Dark Knight" didn't need Superman to save the day. Why does "Man of Steel 2" need the entire Justice League to save the day? Unless Supes goes OFF. Lol He already killed Zod. And on, topic...not feeling this Batmobile so far. They should be iconic and fresh. This teaser appears to allude to neither.

      I dunno, I kinda like it. I'm not optomistic on Afleck as Batman, but at least he'll have a car that looks pretty badass (from the back).

      Every time they have something good going in Hollywood, they have to take it a step to far and ruin it.

      Looks to have a relatively small exhaust pipe, presumably exhausting an ICE. When's the last time the Batmobile wasn't turbine powered?
