The new Batman that will be introduced in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice isn’t exactly a kinder, gentler version of the hero. Ben Affleck’s Batman seems to be mad at the world, specifically the flying alien whose heroics inflicted a lot of damage in Bruce Wayne’s backyard.

In a new video that showcases the DC display at New York Comic-Con, Dawn of Justice costume designer Michael Wilkinson offered insight on the Dark Knight’s new look. “It was really important for Zack [Snyder] that we created a whole new Batman,” Wilkinson said. “He said the most important thing for our Batman is that he comes across as a really hulking big guy. He’s super pumped up. He’s going to be even bigger than Superman in silhouette… He’s like a tower of muscle.”

The new-look Batman borrows elements of Frank Miller’s Dark Knight, and this new photo (below) captures the heft and scowl of the embittered crusader.
