The Batman: First Look at Robert Pattinson’s Batmobile

Director Matt Reeves has shared the first look at the Batmobile from his upcoming film, The Batman, which stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader. The reveal comes just a few weeks after the director gave a glimpse at the new Batsuit.

Arguably DC Comics’ most popular superhero of all time, Batman has been adapted for film numerous times throughout the decades. Each version of the Dark Knight comes with his own set of Batsuit and Batmobile, and Pattinson’s Batman is no exception. We just got our first look at the car, which looks drastically than the recent, modern iterations of the Batmobile.

The new Batmobile is reminiscent of the iconic long-hooded car design from the Tim Burton Batman films, which is more devoted to its comic book roots in comparison to the modern ones. Avoiding the ultra-realism of Christopher Nolan’s military tank, which is often regarded as a breakaway from the stylised designs of the previous Batmobiles, it’s interesting to see how director Matt Reeves walks the line between realism and comic book fun.

Illuminating both his Batman and Batmobile in ominous red lighting, it’s safe to assume The Batman is going to be dark, in both its tone and aesthetics. Reeves’ take on the Caped Crusader would undoubtedly be a far cry from the character’s embarrassing portrayal in 2017’s Justice League.

A few decades ago, before online job applications became the norm, resume objectives were the standard way to begin “snail mail” resumes. However, the internet made it possible for employers to exponentially increase their candidate pool. While this was good for employers, it has intensified the competition between job seekers in many industries.
