It's the moment everyone's been waiting for.

Director Matt Reeves finally revealed the first images of Robert Pattinson in 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. 

Why Robert Pattinson No Longer Hates "Twilight"

Until then, find out more about the project in the gallery below!

Robert Pattinson

At the end of May 2019, news broke that the Twilight alum had landed the special gig of playing Bruce Wayne / the Caped Crusader in The Batman. Nicholas HoultArmie Hammer and Aaron Taylor-Johnson were also rumored contenders for the role. But alas, it's R-Patts who is wearing the Batsuit.

He and the rest of the cast are filming the Matt Reeves project following delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic

Colin Farrell

Speculation about Colin's potential role as The Penguin began swirling in November 2019. Two months later, the film's director also confirmed the news with a gif of Farrell, "Wait—is that you, #Oz?" he tweeted, referring to the villain's real name Oswald.

Now that filming is well underway, fans have seen the actor's impressive transformation into the villain. In fact, his makeover was so good, fans almost didn't recognize him.

Zoe Kravitz

In the middle of October, E! News confirmed the High Fidelity actress was stepping into the iconic shoes of Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman) for The Batman film. Zoe seemingly commented on the news after Jason Momoa shared the announcement on Instagram. "I'm so proud of u zozo bear. On and off screen OHANA. DC WB ohana Lola and Wolfies big sister is CAT WOMAN," he wrote. "Unbelievable so freaking stoked. Your going to have so much fun Aloha P bear."

She responded, "LOVE YOU PAPABEAR! love that aquaman and catwomen spend the holidays together from now on."

As per usual, the actress brings style and flair to the character, as seen in the above photo.

The Batmobile

The Twilight star is hard at work on the set of the 2022 picture, but he had to take a break when a stuntman took the wheel of Batman's motorbike. 

Jonah Hill

Variety had big news to drop in September 2019 when they reported that Jonah was in talks to join The Batman. At the time, sources told the outlet that Jonah was being eyed for a villain role. However, in October it was revealed that Jonah had passed on the role after being offered a part in the film.

Matt Reeves

The writer, director and producer will lead the way when it comes to The Batman remake. While no official production start date has been set, insiders tell multiple outlets that filming could start in late 2019 or early 2020.

Jeffrey Wright

Back in September 2019, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the Westworld star is in negotiations to play Commissioner Gordon, the classic ally to the Dark Knight.

Paul Dano

Warner Bros. announced on October 17 that the former Little Miss Sunshine star had joined the film as the classic villain known as The Riddler. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paul's version of the character will be named Edward Nashton, the man who in the comics later goes by the name Edward Nygma and adopts the villainous persona.

Andy Serkis

Around the same time as Colin, reports also emerged claiming that Andy was in talks to play Alfred Pennyworth in The Batman. These talks are yet to be confirmed by Warner Bros.
