"Holy Toledo!" Bat fans on Tuesday (May 13) got their first glimpse of Ben Affleck dressed in his black batsuit, next to the iconic Batmobile. The tweeted photo shows Batman's batsuit in all its glory, featuring a more superhero look than the suit worn by Affleck's predecessor, Christian Bale. The 41-year-old will take on the role of reclusive billionaire Bruce Wayne, Batman's alter-ego, in director Zack Snyder's 2015 sequel to this year's Superman reboot "Man of Steel," starring 30-year-old British actor Henry Cavill. Alec Baldwin was arrested in New York on Tuesday (May 13) for riding his bicycle in the wrong direction on a one-way street and acting "in a violent, threatening manner" toward police officers, officials said. The Emmy-winner was taken into custody by two officers who spotted him riding his bike against traffic in lower Manhattan around 10 a.m., police said. He was issued two summonses, one for the bicycle violation and another for disorderly conduct. A planned Lady Gaga concert in Dubai in September will be censored to respect cultural traditions, the United Arab Emirates daily Gulf News reported on Tuesday (May 13). Lady Gaga, known for her outrageous stunts and provocative costumes, canceled a concert in Indonesia in 2012 because of security concerns over objections by Islamic groups to her style. Belongings from some of the world's biggest music stars are set to hit the auction block in New York this week. Among the items being sold off when Julien's Auction holds their annual Music Icons sale later this week include a Rickenbacker guitar played at various times by both George Harrison and John Lennon. Additional Beatle items include a Hofner bass played by Paul McCartney. Memorabilia from Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and Lady Gaga will also be up for sale.
