Yesterday, The Batman director Matt Reeves gave us what we’ve all been ready for – our first have a look at Robert Pattinson within the Batsuit. He’s nonetheless holding off on delivering a transparent glimpse on the costume, however he did share a moody, red-tinted digicam check which highlighted varied elements of the outfit, from the stitched, home made leather-based cowl to the curious bat-symbol, which seems to be long-established from items of a gun (the gun that killed Bruce Wayne’s dad and mom?).
As with every part to do with Batman although, followers are cut up down the center over their opinions on the go well with. Nonetheless, it doesn’t matter what aspect of the divide they’re on, many of us are stating that there’s a powerful Adam West vibe happening with Pattinson’s Batman. Certain, there’s positively the gritty contact lifted from modern comics or the Arkham video games, however the cowl appears to be a deliberate homage to the late 60s icon.
As ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis put it:

Now, this can be a good level. Will Colin Farrell’s Penguin have a vivid pink high hat? Will Paul Dano’s Riddler be carrying a skintight inexperienced bodysuit? OK, most likely not.

Clearly, for some, the West similarities are a damaging factor and reminds them why they miss Batfleck.
Lookin like Adam West.. They cannot be severe. Speak about downgrade.

For others, Reeves has managed to tug of a tip of the cowl to the campiest Batman of all of them with out making Pattinson look campy within the course of.

New intel is pointing to The Batman being set throughout Bruce’s second 12 months as Batman, so whereas that is an early type of the outfit, it’s nonetheless a correct Batsuit. The solely factor we actually have to see now in regards to the costume is the ears on the cowl. Going by the West-isms displayed elsewhere although, it’s doubtless they’ll be of the smaller selection.
The Batman is now taking pictures in the UK and is out in cinemas in June 2021.
