We may be used to seeing Jensen Ackles fight supernatural baddies every week as Dean Winchester on The CW's Supernatural, but now we're kind of eager to see him take down mobsters and jewel thieves too. Ackles did not half-ass his Halloween costume this year, dressing up as the Dark Knight himself (we think Dean would approve!). And honestly, he's the Batman we all deserve.

The actor posted his costume pics on Instagram Thursday, and he went ALL OUT. The series of photos showed off his specially made Batsuit, complete with utility belt, cape, and cowl, and Ackles even posed against a Gotham City-esque backdrop and in smoky alleyways. There's Halloween, and then there's an Ackles Halloween, apparently.

The Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes This Year

"Wishing everyone a Happy and Long Halloween!" he wrote. "Thanks to @arachnobite for this crazy, awesome suit and for convincing me to take these pics. (Didn't think the hotel was gonna let us on the roof...glad they did). Stay safe out there, kids. #batman#longhalloween."

Screw candy, can we get more pic as our treat this year?

Supernatural airs Thursdays at 8/7c on the CW.
