Saturday, 15 Feb, 2020

Matt Reeves revealed on Twitter, this video was shot by The Batman's cinematographer Greig Fraser and scored by the movie's composer Michael Giacchino.

A moody clip of Robert Pattinson's new batman suit has been revealed ahead of the new film, The Batman. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new trilogy from Warner Bros. with Robert Pattinson as Batman.

Following a string of roles in acclaimed independent films, The Batman marks Pattinson's return to blockbuster filmmaking after his star-making roles in the Twilight and Harry Potter franchises.

Ever since he was announced, fans were eager to see how Pattinson would fit into the Batman role.

"Matt posted the camera test video on his Twitter page with a caption stating, "#TheBatman #CameraTest".

The Batman also stars Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Gordon, John Turturro as Falcone, Andy Serkis as Pennyworth, Colin Farrell as Penguin along with Peter Sarsgaard, Jayme Lawson and others.

Pattinson recently spoke about wearing the suit to Variety, telling the magazine that putting it on made him feel "powerful immediately", though there are some indignities involved too. It's such an absurd thing to say. Fantastic news, considering I think even the most casual audience member has seen Thomas and Martha Wayne murdered in that alley several times at this point.

I adored Christian Bale as Batman, and I never thought another celebrity would actually replace him that the Batman in my own mind. "You've got five people trying to shove you into something".

The Batman is scheduled for release in the United Kingdom and USA on 25 June 2021.
