Director Matt Reeves revealed the first look of Robert Pattinson as Batman, for his upcoming film The Batman. In the brief video, the caped crusader appears under a saturated red light, and Batman's sleek new look is accompanied by ominous music.
From the moment it was announced that Pattinson would be essaying the role of Batman, people had mixed reactions to the news. And now that the first look has released, Twitterati obviously had a lot to say:
He's the world's most dangerous predator. Everything about him invites you in. His voice. His face. Even his smell. https://t.co/kxEhchfOo7— Lionsgate Movies (@Lionsgate) February 14, 2020

the fact that robert pattinson’s batman suit looks a little like the daredevil suit and ben affleck was the last batman but affleck also played daredevil in 2003 pic.twitter.com/p9MDz6Ru3w— diana (@buffysummere) February 14, 2020
What I love about the clip Matt Reeves shared revealing Robert Pattinson in the Batsuit and Michael Giacchino’s score is how much it feels like a detective noir film. This will def be one of the most unique takes on Batman we’ve seen. #TheBatman— Austin Grant (@AustinPlanet) February 14, 2020
I love his chin. I love his bat symbol / possible weapon (it seems like a multifaceted batarang on his chest?). I love the vibe. I love the stitching. I love Robert Pattinson. I LOVE #BATMAN. pic.twitter.com/XwJnpLzfGq— Roxy Striar (@roxystriar) February 13, 2020
Robert Pattinson's suit definitely reminds me of Arkham and now I'm even more excited!!! I'm so fucking happy The Batman is coming together. Don't get me wrong, Affleck will always be in my heart. He deserved that solo😭 pic.twitter.com/CIsMjKAHYU— Rebecca Luna (@lunamuse19) February 14, 2020

Robert Pattinson literally managed to make his jaw not look like his jaw when in the cowl. That’s impressive how nearly he’s going to viably make Batman unrecognisable as Bruce Wayne. #TheBatman— Jay Thomas (@ThisJayThomas) February 13, 2020
Pattinson is gonna kill it, isn't he? I still need to see more but yeah... That's Batman. pic.twitter.com/io4btVD5Bh— ᴘᴜᴅ333 (@pud333) February 13, 2020
Robert Pattinson as The Batman looks so ... manly. Not sure why that surprises me. pic.twitter.com/456oZ5aVrI— Joe Lamour 🇭🇹🏳️🌈 (@lamour) February 14, 2020
