Ben Affleck is showing off a dramatic new look as he gets stuck in to his new movie, the Ridley Scott directed The Last Duel.

Affleck's character might be unknown for now, but he's giving the name Mr Blonde a literal meaning here – beat that Michael Madsen.

As you can see from the picture below, the Justice League star looks unrecognisable and is sporting an blindingly blonde wig and goatee for his latest role.

You can also make out some of his costume hidden under the big winter jacket he's wearing.

Affleck previously revealed that he was feeling "a little nervous" about appearing in The Last Duel, "because I have never done Medieval!"

Waxing lyrical about the job, Affleck also told Entertainment Tonight: "It was a real pleasure working with Matt [Damon] and Nicole Holofcener, who wrote the script with us. [Matt and I] kept saying, 'Why have we not done this more often?'

"We just got lucky that our schedules kind of intersected so that we had some free time to share.

"We got Ridley Scott directing it. And Jodie Comer's in the movie, so that's very exciting, and Adam [Driver]."

Set in the late 1300's, Scott's movie follows Damon's Jean de Carrouges and Driver's Jacques Le Gris, two former pals who perform an actual duel to the death when one of them is accused of raping the other's wife (played by Killing Eve's Comer).

The Last Duel is scheduled to arrive in cinemas on December 25.
