New concept art from Ruby Rose’s Batwoman gives fans a look at two alternate Batman suit designs.
At the core of Ruby Rose’s Batwoman is the mystery of why Bruce Wayne disappeared. With Bruce Wayne gone, no one was left to protect the iconic Gotham, something that implored Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane to figure out her own way to deliver justice. In Ruby Rose’s Batwoman, fans were given a brief glimpse at the Batman suit that Bruce Wayne donned prior to his disappearance. With Batman out of the picture, Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane absorbed the mantle and iconography of her cousin to become the Batwoman.
To celebrate the reveal of Robert Pattinson’s Batman costume, artist Andy Poon took to Instagram to share some of the early concept art made for the Batman suit in Ruby Rose’s Batwoman. There are two different looks at the Batman suit, though they may look similar at first as the differences are subtle. The first design is certainly more daunting, while the second one leans more into the heroic tendencies of Batman, right down to the pose. You can check out the alternate looks at the Batman suit from Ruby Rose’s Batwoman below. Be sure to swipe right on the post to see the two different Batman designs.

Happy Robert Pattinson Batman day! I’m digging his look. Here are 2 concepts I did of Batman for CW Batwoman. Thank you to costume designer Maya Mani for making a dream come true! I did an illustration of Batman! This Batman suit is supposed to be what Kate Kane and Luke modified to create the Batwoman suit originally designed by @colleenatwoodofficial . Can’t wait to see what the Bat suit actually looks like in Matt Reeves’ The Batman! @dccomics #darkknight #capecrusader #gotham #gothamcity @thecw @cwbatwoman @rubyrose #katekane #brucewayne #batman #thebatman #imbatman #costume #design #conceptualart #illustration #costumeillustration @vancouver #tbt #throwbackthursday @cw_arrow
These two designs presented are drastically different than the Batman suit seen in the Ruby Rose show. In Batwoman, the Batman suit feels less pronounced and had stealth in mind when designed. When looked at in any room, the Batman suit seen in the Ruby Rose show could easily blend in. These two designs on the other hand have a distinctive design with ripples from their fabric. The two cowls from these designs are also more menacing, especially the first one as it opts not to show the Batman’s mouth. The cowl from the second design does show Batman’s mouth but has piercing Bat ears that would make any foe flee in terror. Both designs also make use of Batman’s iconic white eyes.
