A few weeks ago, The Batman director Matt Reeves shared a screen test giving fans their first look at Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader. On Wednesday afternoon, he shared the first images of the brand-new Batmobile. Check out the new look below.

As expected, social media offered mostly positive reviews. The new Batmobile features a stripped-down 1960s muscle car body type, a slight departure from the high-tech model fans saw in The Dark Knight saga. The car’s rear panels are done away with, with the engine exposed in the rear. Additionally, fans got yet another view of Pattinson in costume.
The new Batman reboot is part of a reboot of the DC Films Universe. This past November, Variety reported the studio met with actors like Michael B. Jordan to discuss future titles. Aquaman and Joker recently became the first DC films since The Dark Knight series to gross over $1 billion.
Zoe Kravitz will star as Catwoman in the upcoming film. Collin Farrell will play The Penguin, while Paul Dano and Andy Serkis will respectively star as The Riddler and Alfred Pennyworth.
Production on the film is still in the early stages. The Batman will currently hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
