The Batman star Robert Pattinson gets the spotlight in a trio of new stills from Matt Reeves’ take on the Caped Crusader.
The new stills from The Batman arrived shortly before the DC FanDome panel for the film and showed off an interesting look at the new version of the iconic hero. As writer Mattson Tomlin previously mentioned, the film will explore Bruce Wayne’s soul further than ever before – and these stills definitely evoke that typical brooding nature of the Dark Knight. The stills give us a brief glimpse of what to expect from Matt Reeves’ take on Gotham City, implying a dark and grungy version of the legendary mythology fans have adored for decades.
The new stills of Robert Pattinson in The Batman come courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures on Twitter, and show three very different versions of Bruce Wayne across the film. Firstly, we see his civilian persona, and Pattinson looks like he’s not happy to be out in the daylight without his cape and cowl. This new look comes shortly after Matt Reeves revealed the official logo and some stunning art of the hero on Twitter. The second gives us a brief glimpse of the Bat-Cave and the Batmobile. While the third and final still offers us a truly moody vision of the hero, complete with smudged eye make-up which will help conceal his identity under the new cowl. It’s an intriguing set of looks for the new film, and like many fans, we can’t wait to see more. Take a look below.

The Batman will also feature the hero making use of his detective skills more than what we’ve seen before in previous iterations of the character. It is also expected to be the first installment to a new trilogy starring Pattinson as Batman.
