The director of the highly-anticipated Batman vs. Superman movie has released the first teaser image of the new Batmobile.

Set to be driven by Ben Affleck, the latest Batmobile appears to eschew the military styling of the Tumbler which was used in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. While we can't make out too many details, the image suggests the car will have a long hood, an open cockpit and massive rear tires.

Little else is known about the Batmobile but director Zac Snyder hinted "Could be time to pull the tarp...Tomorrow?"

The Batman vs Superman movie is set to be released on May 6th, 2016 and will feature Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg and the aforementioned Ben Affleck.
