A new video hints that The Batman star Robert Pattinson has already shot scenes with the Batsuit.
Filming for Robert Pattinson’s The Batman recently begun in the United Kingdom, something that means there’s currenlty a lot of speculation regarding the Dark Knight’s next cinematic solo outing. Arguably one of the most anticipated blockbusters of 2021, Robert Pattinson’s The Batman is expected to give fans a brand new, detective-driven take on the world’s greatest detective. One of the most unique things the film has to offer is indie darling Robert Pattinson joining the long line of actors who have previously played Batman. Just recently, The Batman star Robert Pattinson was awarded with the Best British Actor award at the London Film Critics’ Circle Awards.
Unfortunately, Robert Pattinson couldn’t make the awards ceremony as his schedule has been taken up by filming for The Batman. Instead of requesting someone to accept the award on his behalf, Robert Pattinson sent in a video in which he thanked the committee. In his acceptance speech, Robert Pattinson can be seen with dark make-up surrounding his eyes, suggesting that he’s already shot scenes with while wearing the Batsuit. You can check out the full video below.

Seeing as the video was shot recently, and filming for The Batman started this past Monday, it would make sense for this video to be shot during production. At this point, there’s no indication as to what Robert Pattinson and The Batman cast have filmed thus far. If we do go by the dark make-up near Robert Pattinson’s eyes, it would make sense to assume that he’s already filmed in the cowl. One thing seems certain: a suit reveal for The Batman should be coming our way soon.
