Robert Pattinson’s Batman suit has finally been revealed in a new test video by director Matt Reeves. Production on The Batman started a couple of weeks ago in London, which means that Bat fans have been hoping to finally get a look of what
Battinson’s Pattinson’s latest iteration of the Dark Knight would look like.
Highly reminiscent of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker reveal back in 2018, Reeves’ reveal of his rendition of Batman is highly effective. With an aesthetic and tone that echoes the spirit of Batman: Year One, 2021’s The Batman could very well be the revival that the franchise desperately needs. In addition, Pattinson’s Batsuit is also highly reminiscent of the more realistic, armored take on the suit
Following lackluster films such as Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad and Justice League (All of which featured the Caped Crusader to varying degree), Warner Bros.’ Batman brand had certainly seen better days. Hopefully, the noir detective story direction that Reeves repeatedly teased will elevate the beloved DC Comics superhero to great heights.
Following the critical success of DC Film’s latest slate of movies, fans have many reasons to look forward to 2021’s The Batman. By placing a strong focus on the quality of individual films instead of building a cinematic universe, DC Film’s future is brighter than ever.
Matt Reeves is directing the highly anticipated superhero film, which will star Robert Pattinson as Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, Paul Dano as the Riddler and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon. Reeves also co-wrote the screenplay with Mattson Tomlin, and is producing alongside Dylan Clark. Warner Bros. will unleash Reeves’ The Batman on June 25, 2021
