Matt Reeves has released an ominous first look costume test video of actor Robert Pattinson as “The Batman.” Like the Joaquin Phoenix test footage that was released a year ago of him as the Joker, both costume test footage clips create a sense of dread.
The video is lit in a red hue as a slow melodic piano plays in the background. We see what appears to be the new Bat symbol on Pattinson’s chest as the camera pans up. We then get our first look at the cowl that is almost Adam West looking. I lit the image up below so you could see it better.
The Batman is an upcoming American superhero film based on the DC Comicscharacter of the same name. Produced by DC Films and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, it was developed as the tenth film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and a reboot of the Batman film franchise. The film is directed by Matt Reeves, who wrote the screenplay with Mattson Tomlin, and will star Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne / Batman, with Jeffrey Wright, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell, and John Turturroin supporting roles.
The Batman is scheduled to be released on June 25, 2021.
