We have our first official look as Robert Pattinson as our new Batman. Director Matt Reeves shared a video showing the former Twilight star for the first time as a legendary DC hero in costume. This is a big deal, to say the least, since Pattinson's casting was one of the greatest developments that led to production. Now we have a much better idea of what it will look like.
Matt Reeves, who is the author and director of . The Batman went to Twitter to share the video. The footage takes just under a minute. The room is red and dark, atmospheric music is playing in the background as we Robert Pattinson enlarge his chest, which reveals the heavy armor of the legendary Batman symbol. We then swing up to see his head, which also gives us a look at the actor in the hood. In a follow-up tweet, Matt Reeves revealed that the music heard in the video was composed by Michael Giacchino, who had previously confirmed that he would do the score for the film.

It seems that Warner Bros. and Reeves wanted the first look at the new batsuit to come from them, rather than waiting for someone to inevitably take blurry set photos and share them online.
