The new Batman is here (without red filters)
This morning the bombshell was released: Matt Reeves, responsible for the next new movie about Batman, revealed on his Twitter account the first image of its protagonist, Robert Pattinson, in the skin of the Batman. It was undoubtedly one of the most anticipated moments by fans, given the expectations so high that there is always with this DC comics character and the doubts that there was about the fact that Pattison is responsible for giving it life.
This has been the moment in the official Reeves account on Twitter:

As you can see, the video is titled «camera test» and it shows, in effect, the image of the actor wrapped in the mythical Batman suit, only there is a big catch: the images have a red filter that lets us see in its total essence what the character looks like. They also look quite dark, which does not help to appreciate all the details.
Such is the situation (and the craving to see more) that have already remedied the matter. A superhero fan and digital artist has taken care of color and give light to the images shared by the director, so that we can get a better idea of how Pattinson’s suit feels and better appreciate the details such as the chest. The retouching has shown it on his Instagram account:
What do you think of Batman’s new image? Do you like the design of your suit?
Pattinson’s Batman, in the spotlight
Before we pointed out that this Batman was quite expected, among other things, because of the poor reception that the announcement that Robert Pattinson would be responsible for giving life. The actor, famous especially for his role in the saga Twilight, He did not quite convince the fans, who considered that he did not have enough charisma, the right physique (he was too thin) or the trajectory necessary to interpret the character.
Such was the rejection that even opened a Change.org to collect signatures on the digital platform and request more formally that Robert was not the protagonist of the next film. Pattinson at least reacted with humor to the critics and came to comment that thus the challenge would be greater and more fun to show that he is qualified to get into the Bat Man’s suit.
It is still early to confirm or not if so, but at least this first image has liked enough and has managed to create a hype loud enough for everyone to talk about how well he paints and forget a bit that Pattinson is behind the mask. We’ll see when the trailer arrives.
