Matt Reeve’s The Batman has quickly become one of the most anticipated films in cinematic history. The Robert Pattinson-led new take on the Caped Crusader promises to bring a different point of view to Batman during his early days in the cowl. As first revealed by the director himself on Twitter, fans now have their first glimpse at what the new Batmobile looks like. Take a look below.

This new version of Batman’s ride looks extremely similar to the one the character drove in the iconic Batman: The Animated Series. Its sleek design sets it apart from other designs and provides fans with a unique style to associate with Pattinson for years to come. It is worth noting that this new iteration appears to be built for speed rather than combat.
The last few weeks have been good for Batman fans. Recent set photos showcased The Penguin and, potentially, the Batcycle. The upcoming DC film will have Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne face off against members of the Dark Knight’s rogues gallery. The film will feature Colin Farrell as The Penguin, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Andy Serkis as Alfred and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon.
Last year, Pattinson spoke with Variety in a tell-all interview about the film’s direction. “I really like Matt Reeves and his setup for it. It’s an interesting direction,” the titular star explained. “This is something from the comics that haven’t been explored yet. It’s crazy shoes to fill. It’s interesting the different directions you can take with it and that the, in some ways, quite a specific character actually has a lot of leeway. When you look at the different tones of the movies and TV shows, you can do a lot with it.”
