FIRST LOOK: Photos of Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne and Batman Have Been Released

When it was first announced last year that Robert Pattinson had been cast as Batman, many people weren’t happy about it (mostly because a lot of them still saw him as Edward Cullen in ‘Twilight’ – which is, admittedly, a role that is hard to erase from one’s memory… but please also check out his other movies because he is actually an amazing actor if you’d give him a chance).

Anyway, during the Batman panel at today’s DC Fandome, Warner Bros. released photos of Robert as Bruce Wayne and Batman so we can get a look at what to expect. Check them out:

Regular teasers of the film have been released since the cast announcement last year, but production was halted earlier this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. During the panel, it was announced that they would start filming again in September. So far, only 25% of the film has been shot, pushing the release date to October 2021.
