Robert Pattinson The Batman Opening Weekend Box Office

The Batman costume designer Glyn Dillion revealed some alternate logos for the Matt Reeves film.

Every Batman suit stands apart from the rest, with the Bat-Symbol design on the chest serving as the centerpiece. Robert Pattinson’s suit in The Batman features one of the most unique Bat-Symbols to date, with an emblem minus the ears, in line with the character’s original appearance in Detective Comics #27.

While the ears might not have been on the armor, a more traditional-looking Batman logo was on the Bat Signal and part of the film’s marketing. On Instagram, costume designer Glyn Dillion shared some concept art from The Batman, including various Bat-Symbols that were considered. You can check them all out below.

Here is the synopsis for The Batman:

Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) — amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.

When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.

Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero and Bruce Wayne, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, and Barry Keoghan as The Joker.

The Batman will hit HBO Max and be available digitally on April 18, with physical media copies dropping on May 24. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the future of The Batman franchise, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
