Fans had mixed opinions, with some admiring the tough pose and jutting chin, while others had a different Bat-image in their minds.

Snyder's been good about sharing photos from the much-anticipated film, and some fans still hope he'll reveal a shot of actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, perhaps at San Diego Comic Con this weekend.

Fans will have plenty of time to mull over any images. "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" won't hit theaters until May 6, 2016.
