Matt Reeves revealed the first look at Robert Pattinson as Batman in his upcoming film “The Batman” on Thursday. Set to an ominous score, Pattinson steps into a dark frame saturated in red, as his sleek and angular Batman suit slowly comes into focus.
Last September, Pattinson told Variety that he grew up as a massive fan of director Tim Burton’s 1989 and 1992 “Batman” movies, and once he heard that Reeves was rebooting the Caped Crusader series for Warner Bros., he actively pursued the part.
“I’d had Batman in my mind for a while,” Pattinson said. “It’s such an absurd thing to say. I sort of had an idea to do it, and I’d been prodding Matt. He didn’t accept any prods. I kept asking to meet him.”
But once the audition process kicked into its final stages, Pattinson did try on the iconic costume — or, at least, Reeve’s version of it. “I remember saying to Matt, ‘It does feel quite transformative!’” the actor said. “He was like, ‘I would hope it does! You’re literally in the Batsuit.’ ”
