Robert Pattinson makes first appearance as 'Batman' in new video

Pattinson is taking on a part that was previously played by the likes of Michael Keaton, George Clooney, Christian Bale and Ben Affleck, among others.

Filmmaker Matt Reeves revealed the first look of Robert Pattinson as The Batman from his upcoming film about the iconic DC superhero. 

The filmmaker took to Twitter to share the first camera test for the upcoming film, titled The Batman.

In the short clip, Pattinson, dressed as the caped crusader, is approaching towards the camera that is set in a dark room saturated in red light.

This scene, which shows the Batman logo embossed on Pattinson’s chest before focussing on the famous cowl, is accentuated by Michael Giacchino’s score. 

Apart from Pattinson, the latest retelling of the caped crusader’s story also features Paul Dano as The Riddler, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, and Colin Farrell as Penguin.

Meanwhile, Giacchino has previously collaborated with Reeves on Let Me In (2010), Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) and War for the Planet of the Apes (2017). The Batman is scheduled to be released on June 21, 2021.
