Batman has at least 2 Bat-suits in the movie. The internet went into a state of frenzy when Zack Snyder tweeted a look at the new Bat-suit worn by Ben Affleck.

The incredible Bat-armor looks heavier and bulkier with the aim of providing him with better protection when he takes on the Man of Steel.

This is found repeated in the movie.

Jesse Eisenberg as Luthor
The Joker and The Riddler were the original super villains in the Miller’s comics. However, Snyder departs from that and introduces Lex Luthor(Jesse Eisenberg) as the main villain. The villain is naturally scheming and menacing with sinister plans to clash the two super heroes. Eisenberg insists that the character will not be ‘some silly, villainous character’.

Will he be able to win over the fans with his performance? Will he add something new to the charactering he will be depicting? There is only one way to find out.
