The Batman: First Batmobile Photos Revealed
Has Batman joined the Fast Saga? Because that would be amazing.
The Batman's director, Matt Reeves, is releasing footage and photos from the set of the film himself, so fans don't have to stare at blurry set photos from random people on Twitter. Recently, he shared camera test footage of Robert Pattinson in his fancy new Batsuit, and now, we get to see the Dark Knight's ride for the upcoming 2021 movie.
Matt Reeves is the kind of movie director Batman fans need more of. After sharing in costume as the Caped Crusader in the new film , the director has now revealed the Dark Knight's ride in the movie.
Using only a bat emoji and a race car emoji to describe what he's sharing, Reeves tweeted three photos of the new Batmobile on the movie's set and, honestly, it looks like something out of the Fast & Furious franchise more than it looks like a big-screen Batmobile. While it's unclear exactly what type of car Batman drives in the new film, it looks like a souped-up muscle car.
What these photos also offer is the first official look at Pattinson's full Batman costume. While set photos were released online recently, they were not taken by the production. In these new images, Pattinson can be seen standing next to the car, looking menacing as he, one can only assume, challenges Dominic Toretto to a race through the streets of Gotham.
The Batman is expected to look more into the detective aspect of the famed comic book character, as a young Bruce Wayne (Pattinson)--early in his Batman career--goes toe-to-toe with The Penguin (Collin Farrell), The Riddler (Paul Dano), and Catwoman (Zoe Kravitz). Also starring in the film is Andy Serkis, playing Alfred Pennyworth. Westworld’s Jeffrey Wright was reported to be in talks to play Commissioner Gordon in the film, though that has yet to be confirmed.
The film is scheduled to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
