Director Matt Reeves has just posted new official images of star Robert Pattinson all suited up as The Dark Knight next to his awesome looking new Batmobile via Instagram as production continues on the highly anticipated redo of the Caped Crusader. Take a peek below!
Pattinson is joined in the film by Zoe Kravitz who is playing Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman), Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot, aka the Penguin, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton, aka the Riddler,Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth who is Bruce Wayne’s most trusted butler and ally.
One cool aspect is that we get our first glimpse of the new and improved Batmobile which looks like it will surely be fast. The back of it looks amazing and turbo charged as well although there will probably be critics who hate it as well but I think this film is looking pretty damn good and I can’t wait to see first footage.
The Batman is said to focus on the Caped Crusader’s early days as a detective and crime fighter and will feature a Rogues Gallery of villains.
Pattinson, of course, took some flack when he was announced as the newest version of The Dark Knight but just like Ben Affleck who put the naysayers to rest, I think Pattinson will do the same and these images further strengthen their decision to go with him.
I also love that Reeves is sharing these cool pics and he isn’t afraid to show the world what he has in store. I am cautiously optimistic and hope Pattinson nails it.
The newest incarnation of the DC comics superhero will hit theaters on June 25th, 2021!
