The suit makes the man; the Batsuit makes the Batman.
Ben Affleck sported a couple of different Bat-looks in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," and now he's got a new outfit for "Justice League," which is currently in production. Director Zack Snyder shared a first look image at the "tactical Batsuit," which looks a bit heavier and more armored, and includes goggles.

Looking at other parts of the photo, Affleck's Bruce Wayne appears to be in some sort of workshop or garage (the sparks flying around the Batmobile indicate machine work). He's also pulling a lever. Our guess is that Batman is tweaking his tech to face some formidable foes.
As costume designer Michael Wilkinson told Comicbook.com, "In the final chapter of our film, Batman realizes he has to step up his game a little bit and he and Alfred have been working on developing a suit that's even more protective and offers more deflection than the classic suit. So in a sense, it's piece of armor."
The goggles, in addition to looking cool, serve a purpose. "He'll also be piloting a new vehicle that he will need these goggles for."
New Batsuit, new Bat vehicle, new Bat time: "Justice League" is set to open in theaters Nov. 17, 2017.
