See Robert Pattinson in The Batman suit right here, right now! We’re super hyped!
Previously, Matt Reeves released a video that shows a mechanical-looking Batman logo. In the 2015 video game Batman: Arkham Knight, the Batsuit armor pieces would mechanically tighten, align, or separate depending on what Batman wanted to do.
Arkham Origins also featured several different shoulder armor options for the Batman suit that look similar to what’s shown in the camera test clip Reeves shared online.

In Batman: Gotham Knight, the 2008 anthology film comprised of animated superhero shorts, Batman rocked a popped collar and a chin guard in the “Crossfire” segment.
Finally, in Gotham by Gaslight, an alternate-reality Batman set in the 1880’s also wore a slightly popped collar while battling against Jack the Ripper.
There’s even a theory going around that the Batman insignia on this new suit is literally made from pieces of the gun that killed Bruce’s parents. So, that’s metal.
Regardless of how the costume came together and what pieces of past Batman media it might be referencing, the important thing is that Pattinson loves how it looks. Speaking with Yahoo Entertainment in October 2019, Pattinson briefly gushed about his Batsuit. Keep watching the video to see that the hype is real after Pattinson’s Batman suit reveal!
