We are still over a year away from getting to see the latest Batman reboot, and while fans questioned the casting of Robert Pattinson as The Caped Crusader originally, they may be taking back their words now. Director Matt Reeves revealed the first look at Pattinson in the Batman costume this week, and after seeing the new suit, anticipation has officially hit an all-time high.

In the new footage, set to ominous music, Pattinson is shown in the Batman suit as the camera pans up from the chest plate logo, to a masked Pattinson. Pattinson, who many questioned being cast as Batman, said last year he was a huge fan of Tim Burton’s 1989 and 1992 “Batman” movies. Once he heard the franchise was being rebooted again, he made sure to pursue the part intensely.

“I’d had Batman in my mind for a while,” Pattinson said. Now the role is his, and based on the first look, it could be his best yet. Pattinson will star alongside Zoe Kravitz, Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright and Andy Serkis. The film is set to debut June 25, 2021.
