It's the moment everyone's been waiting for.
Director Matt Reeves finally revealed the first images of Robert Pattinsonin the iconic Batman suit. Of course, the movie has only just begun filming so fans weren't able to see the Twilight star in all his glory, but the brief teaser shared on Twitter was enough for fans to know that the Brit fills out the suit well.
As far as the Batsuit goes, it's very similar to the one sported by Christian Bale in Christopher Nolan's three films. The only noticeable difference is that this Batsuit looks decidedly more gritty and rough around the edges.
Overall, it seems the passionate fan base approves of Reeves' vision of the iconic comic book character. Moreover, they seem to be looking forward to the dark and almost suspenseful approach he's taking to a film that's been recreated multiple times.
However, there will still be many months till fans can see the finished project on the big screen.
Until then, find out more about the project in the gallery below!
