id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body”> Actor Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader in The Batman.

Matt Reeves/Screenshot edited by CNET The Batman doesn’t hit theaters until 2021, but DC Comics fans got their first look at actor Robert Pattinson dressed as Batman, thanks to Director Matt Reeves.

On Thursday, Reeves shared a video via his Twitter of Pattinson wearing Batman’s intimidating superhero costume, with the caption “#TheBatman #CameraTest.”

The dark black and red video pans over the Batman symbol on the chest of the outfit and then we see Pattinson in Batman’s cowl, looking rather ominous. The video also has a rather foreboding music soundtrack.

Yes folks that’s my music in the video Matt just sent out. Enjoy!! website

In addition to Pattinson, The Batman also stars Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin, John Turturro as Gotham mob boss Carmine Falcone, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Peter Sarsgaard as Gotham District Attorney Gil Colson, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, and Jayme Lawson as Gotham City mayoral candidate Bella Reál.

As expected, Batman fans had a few things to say about the new footage on social media. 

One fan went so far to color correct the video footage to make it black and white.

The suit is incredible. ?

And it’s so beautiful#TheBatman

— Afram Malki (@AframMalki) February 14, 2020 The look of the new batsuit looks like a modern take on the OG Detective Comics look. I really hope this means the movie is going back to the core root of who Batman is: a detective. More brain than brawn. Pattinson’s demeanor would fit well with that. We shall see! #TheBatman

— aseem the dream (@hotelgaruda) February 14, 2020 It would be cool to make a gritty serious Batman origin movie where the first time a character sees Batman in his suit they’re like “Why are you dressed like Batman”

— Brooks Otterlake (@i_zzzzzz) February 14, 2020 The first photos of Pattinson as Batman have been released-I don’t want to sound too picky but this uniform looks kinda weird to me-and 리니지프리서버추천 it reminds me of Daredevil’s.

I hope his acting will surprise us. What do you think?
