Now, C. S. Evans has shared new fan art that depicts Armie Hammer wearing a costume inspired by Lee Bermejo’s graphic novel Batman: Noël, which was inspired by Charles Dickens’ classic novel A Christmas Carol.

Plot details for The Batman are currently under wraps, though the film will center around a younger Caped Crusader and includes multiple villains. Matt Reeves also confirmed that it will not be directly based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic and will make full use of the Dark Knight’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous films.
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
