Robert Pattinson suits up in first look at Matt Reeves' The Batman
The Caped Crusader has finally donned his cape.
The Batman director Matt Reeves shared a behind-the-scenes camera test for the film Thursday, featuring the first look at Robert Pattinson in costume. It’s only a few seconds of (extremely dark!) footage, but it’s our first real glimpse of Pattinson’s Batsuit, showcasing a nifty new chest emblem (are those Batarangs?) and one very dramatic chin.
The test footage also includes a snippet of composer Michael Giacchino’s ominous, piano-driven score. It’s dark and brooding — perfect for everyone’s favorite dark and brooding hero.
Pattinson is playing the orphan-billionaire-turned-vigilante, and Reeves has previously teased that he’s approaching the story as a dark detective tale. And like any good Batman adventure, this film has a diverse rogues gallery, including Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, Paul Dano as the Riddler, and John Turturro as mobster Carmine Falcone.
