Director Matt Reeves has posted the first look of Robert Pattison as Batman in the now shooting The Batman. The video was shot by the film’s director of photography Greig Fraser with music by the film’s composer Michael Giacchino.
The look is reminiscent of Christopher Nolan’s take on the character in his trilogy. The design has a grounded design about it, like hockey equipment meets skating pads meets police armor. We also get a first look at the new Bat-symbol.
The Batman is set to come to theaters on June 25, 2021.
