The more we see Ben Affleck's Batman, the more menacing and completely void of joy he looks. We've caught glimpses of him in previous teaser photos and the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but this is probably the best, most straight-on look at Affleck as the Caped Crusader yet. It's basically an unmodified version of the heavily stylized posters that were tweeted by director Zack Snyder last week.

This Batman poster hasn't yet been released through official channels, but according to Polygon it's been floating around various forums and looks to be genuine enough. Affleck's got some legitimate chin stubble going on, a look that previous actors who donned the batsuit never explored. But it's a perfect match for the bleak, hopeless atmosphere showcased in the film's first trailer.

Update May 1st 1:20pm ET: Images have been removed at the request of Warner Bros.
