It’s the jaw that Gotham just deserves!
Director Matt Reeves gave fans a first look at Robert Pattinson in the legendary cape and hood of the Caped Crusader on Thursday and tweeted a costumed camera test of the actor for their upcoming film.
In the clip, which is set to correspondingly threatening music, Pattison is shown in a weak, red light and slowly brought into focus. His suit features the signature black bat on the chest (though it appears to be metal-coated and slimmer in outline than the bat Ben Affleck’s recent repetition of the character wore) with the hood covering his eyes and nose. Remarkably, the “ears” of the mask – the size and style of which varied from Batman to Batman – cannot be seen in the picture.
In an interview, Pattinson set out to try on the batsuit for the first time
The Hollywood Reporter last fall.
“I remember saying to Matt: ‘It feels pretty transformative!’ He said: “I would hope so! You’re literally in a batsuit, “he recalled.” You immediately feel very powerful. And it’s pretty amazing, something that’s incredibly difficult to achieve, so the ritual of getting involved is pretty humiliating. You have five people trying to push you into something. Once you did it, I put it on, it’s like, ‘Yeah, I feel strong, I feel hard, even though I had to have someone to press my buttocks in the legs.’ “
The Batman – with Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle / Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Colin Farrell as The Penguin and Paul Dano as The Riddler – will be released on June 25, 2021.
