Batman fans swoon over Robert Pattinson’s jawline in new Dark Knight costume
Former Twilight star Robert Pattinson has been unveiled in costume as Batman for the first time.
The 33-year-old British actor is set to take over the role of the Caped Crusader following the departure of Ben Affleck from the role.
Now director Matt Reeves has shared a screen-test video of Pattinson in costume for the upcoming film The Batman.
With a moody score from composer Michael Giacchino and shot by Greig Fraser, we see red-lit close-ups of the new Batman costume, showing off some armour-like leather and adorned with a Bat symbol that looks like a sawn-in-half gun – perhaps the one used to kill Bruce Wayne's parents?
We also get a close side-view of Pattinson in the Batman mask, with his sharp jawline matching its cut.
Naturally, the new footage has caused a stir on social media as everyone shared their reactions.
One fan took to Twitter and wrote: "CAN WE MAGICALLY MAKE IT 2021"
Another noted: "I'm a big fan of the wider opening in the mask for his jaw, & I like the way the cowl looks like it's made of pieces of thick leather. I also appreciate the way the suit has accessories built directly into it as well as the armoring. I can't wait for #TheBatman!"
"Happy Valentine's Day!," wrote another.
Elsewhere, one wrote: "I think the cowl is what makes me really like this. The narrow openings in the other movies always bothered me. Let the strong jawline show (though bale had no jawline)."
However, one was less pleased and shared a picture of Ben Affleck's Batman: "Worst downgrade in cinema history… we got this and they blow it."
A different fan commented: "Looks like the bat from Arkham asylum."
Finally, one concluded: "THE BATTINSON ERA IS COMING!!!!"
The new film will also star Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman/Selina Kyle, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, Paul Dano as The Riddler/Edward Nashton, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth. and Colin Farrell as The Penguin/Oswald "Oz" Cobblepot.
The Batman is released in cinemas on June 25, 2021.
