Check out the Dark Knight’s desert mask in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice

batman v superman desert mask dawn of justice
The most recent trailer for Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice offers up a lot of new footage from the impending big-screen brawl between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel, including a scene in which Batman wears a more desert-friendly uniform as he battles a group of soldiers. Dawn of Justice set photographer Clay Enos recently posted an up-close look at the gear Batman wears in that scene, and it makes for an impressive and (literally) gritty profile of Gotham’s iconic vigilante.

Captioned “That was fun,” the Instagram photo features an up-close look at Ben Affleck in Batman’s mask and cowl, complete with goggles, duster, and scarf. As noted by quite a few fans, the look is reminiscent of Batman’s alternate-timeline World War II-era uniform in DC Comics’ Elseworlds series.

In the Dawn of Justice trailer, the suit can be glimpsed around the 2:40 mark, with Batman seen emerging from an underground bunker, then fighting with a group of armed soldiers in the desert. The soldiers appear to have Superman-style “S” insignias on their uniforms.
