Here's Our First Look at Robert Pattinson as Batman

Here’s Your First Look At Robert Pattison In ‘The Batman’ & The Real Hero Here Is That Jawline

Director Matt Reeves took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to share a first glimpse at Robert Pattinson in "The Batman". The satisfyingly dark and moody clip is a camera test, as Matt Reeves tweeted, and unveils the newest Dark Knight in Gotham City - Robert Pattinson is all sharp jawline and brooding attitude, in the Christian Bale vein of Batmanism rather than the campy Adam West version or Ben Affleck's businessman in a cape.

Reeves shared a short camera test on Twitter, showing the 33-year-old Pattinson as Batman, his suit illuminated by low, scarlet lighting that outlines the worn edges of his chest insignia. With a script from Reeves and Mattson Tomlin, "The Batman" features cinematography from Oscar-nominated DP Greig Fraser, who also shot Denis Villeneuve's upcoming "Dune", plus "Lion" and "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story".

"I'd had Batman in my mind for a while", Pattinson said. It's such an absurd thing to say.

Pattinson is set to inherit the Batsuit and all that goes along with Bruce Wayne's iconic backstory beside a cast that also includes Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, Andy Serkis, Jayme Lawson, John Turturro, and Peter Sarsgaard. He didn't accept any prods.


He went on to describe how the suit 'is incredibly hard to get into, so the ritual of getting into it is pretty humiliating'. "Once you've got it on, it's like, 'Yeah, I feel strong, I feel tough, even though I had to have someone squeezing my butt cheeks into the legs".

With production already underway in London, The Batman swoops into theaters June 25, 2021.

Kravitz recently told Variety she received more texts and calls after landing the role of Catwoman than she did on her birthday or wedding day.
