New artwork imagines The Batman star Robert Pattinson with a Batsuit inspired by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Zero Year storyline from DC Comics.
The Batman is expected to borrow some elements from Frank Miller’s Year One, but another DC Comics story worth reading before the film arrives in theaters is Zero Year. Created by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, Zero Year is a reimagining of the Caped Crusaders’s origin story which sees the DC Comics hero taking on The Riddler, a character set to appear in The Batman.
One of the most recognizable parts from Zero Year is the look the Dark Knight sports in an apocalyptic Gotham City. On Twitter, Jonny Yee recently imagined what Robert Pattinson could look like with a Batman suit inspired by Zero Year. Check out the fan art below.

The plot of The Batman is being kept under wraps, 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 DC, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content!
