What a pleasant surprise! Out of nowhere, Matt Reeves released the first official look at Robert Pattinson’s Batman.
The director, who has been constantly raving about “The Batman”, posted a 45-second camera test clip on Vimeo. It’s not a full on reveal of everything, but still, it’s R-Patz in his superhero suit!
The clip looks like it was shot in a dark room with our new Caped Crusader barely visible against the red glow. The 34-year-old Brit walks towards the camera in slow mo, revealing the metal bat-symbol embedded in his chest plate. We then get a closer look at his shoulder armour and his cowl.
There’s definitely a lot of interesting details here. At first glance, it’s a different vibe of costume from what we’ve seen before. You can tell that they’ve taken a more Arkham-style approach based on the chest plate. That Bat symbol on him looks super bad ass!
During the final audition process, Pattinson shared that he had tried on the iconic Batman costume – or at least Reeves’ version. “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.’”
“You do feel very powerful immediately,” the Brit continued. “And it’s pretty astonishing, something that is incredibly difficult to get into, so the ritual of getting into it is pretty humiliating. You’ve got five people trying to shove you into something. Once you’ve got it on, it’s like, ‘Yeah, I feel strong, I feel tough, even though I had to have someone squeezing my butt cheeks into the legs.‘”
Enjoy the clip:
