The Batman star Robert Pattinson dons a DC Rebirth-inspired Batsuit in new artwork.
With a year to go before we finally get to see Robert Pattinson wage war on the criminals of Gotham City in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, but this fan art gives the British actor a DC Rebirth-inspired Batsuit instead of the bulky tactical armor which debuted in the impressive first trailer for the film. When DC Rebirth rebooted the universe thanks to some involvement from Watchmen‘s Doctor Manhattan, Batman was seen sporting a new Batsuit with a gold trim around his iconic chest symbol. And it’s that part of the Batsuit which really makes an impact in the artwork.
The new look for Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne comes from ‘thelockart’ on Instagram and it gives the British actor a comic accurate look which seemingly combines the DC Rebirth costume with the Ben Affleck Batsuit. This costume also gives Pattinson a completely different cowl, which looks like one full piece, whereas The Batman suit looks like it’s built with individual pieces. You can see Robert Pattinson wearing the DC Rebirth Batsuit for The Batman below.

Plot details for The Batman are being kept under lock and key, but we know that the project will revolve around Robert Pattinson as a younger Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector. 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 Batman trilogy with Pattinson.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, the film stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, 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 opens in theaters on October 1, 2021. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news regarding the Batman universe, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content.
