Production is now underway on Matt Reeves‘ THE BATMAN, and fans have been hungry for their first look at Robert Pattinson in the Batsuit; well, look no further because Matt Reeves has shared a camera-test which shows off Pattinson wearing the new Batsuit. We don’t get a great look at the entire thing, but it’s certainly enough to keep us talking until we get more. Check it out!
Robert Pattinson certainly has the chin down, and I love that we’re getting a hint of what seems to be Adam West‘s Batman cowl. In a follow-up tweet, Matt Reeves stated that the camera-test was shot by THE BATMAN director-of-photography Greig Fraser and scored by Michael Giacchino. According to The Wrap, THE BATMAN will explore Bruce Wayne’s second year as the Dark Knight. Still a newbie. Well, what do you folks think of this first look of Robert Pattinson as Batman?
THE BATMAN stars Robert Pattinson (THE LIGHTHOUSE) as the Dark Knight, Zoë Kravitz (Big Little Lies) as Catwoman, Paul Dano (SWISS ARMY MAN) as The Riddler, Jeffrey Wright (NO TIME TO DIE) as Commissioner Gordon, Andy Serkis (STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI) as Alfred Pennyworth, Colin Farrell (DUMBO) as Penguin, and John Turturro (The Night Of) as Carmine Falcone. We still don’t know all that much about THE BATMAN at this stage, but Matt Reeves has teased that it will finally do justice to Batman’s reputation of the World’s Greatest Detective.
It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.
THE BATMAN is already slated for a June 25, 2021 release.
