Here’s our first look at Robert Pattinson in a Batsuit for Matt Reeves’ The Batman 1

The Batman director Matt Reeves took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to share a camera test of Robert Pattinson in his Caped Crusader costume.

The red-saturated test footage was filmed by The Batman cinematographer Greig Fraser and features a piece of piano-driven music made by the movie composer, Michael Giacchino. The minute-long video opens with a close-up shot of the iconic Batman symbol on the chest of Pattinson’s Batsuit, before revealing the actor’s brooding face covered in the character’s signature cowl.

The camera test, which Reeves first uploaded on Vimeo, has been met with different reactions from fans. Longtime supporters of Pattinson find his overall look amazing, while some Batman fans are simply not impressed by it.

Many people think that Pattinson’s Batsuit is a downgrade from Ben Affleck’s The Dark Knight costume, with some calling the former a mere cosplay outfit.

But since it’s just a camera test, it’s likely that it doesn’t show the final look of Pattinson’s Batman.

Filming for The Batman started in January in London. Reeves is directing the flick from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin. While plot details are being kept under wraps, the movie is expected to highlight the titular hero’s extraordinary sleuthing skills, which earned him the moniker “the world’s greatest detective” in the comic books.

Slated to be released in June 25th, 2021, The Batman also stars Colin Farrell as the Penguin, Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, and Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál.
