The Batman director Matt Reeves has shared a new image from the Robert Pattinson starrer to celebrate Batman Day.

Batman Day falls on the third Saturday of every September, with this year’s celebratory event taking place on the 18th. It’s a big day for fans of the iconic DC Comics hero so Matt Reeves took to Twitter to drop an exciting sneak peek at The Batman to mark the occasion.

The newly-released image from The Batman shows Robert Pattinson suited up as the Dark Knight, using a grappling hook. The moment was also featured in the film’s DC FanDome trailer, which made its debut last August. In his Twitter post, Matt Reeves teased that fans should expect more reveals at the next DC FanDome event, which is scheduled to take place on October 16th.

The plot of The Batman is being kept under lock and key, but we know the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger version of Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as the Dark Knight of Gotham City. The film will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the hero. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films with Pattinson.

Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.

The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 4, 2022. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the upcoming DC film, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content.
