Bruce Wayne looks sort of grumpy, like the Joker disturbed his naptime, in this new promo still from Batman: The Dark Knight. He's also not nearly as buff as he was in Batman Begins, while the Batsuit has more fake plastic muscles than before. Also released today: a new poster for The Dark Knight that tastefully avoids showing Heath Ledger looking spooky. Click through for images.

@bma2192: Nope. All about the black suit right here. Nothing cooler. There's also the little fact that in Real Life (tm), gray would show as brightly as white if any light hit it in the dark. I've always hated that about the costume; it's so unrealistic for a creature of shadows to wear something that would reflect light. And it would never look as cool in a real-life design as the black does emerging from darkness.
