The footage is dark and saturated in red light but showcases our first glimpse of part of the batsuit, which includes the cowl. While not as big as the suit worn by Ben Affleck, it seems to fit the more youthful take on the character that will be provided by Pattinson.
Reeves also revealed back on January 27th, that filming had begun for The Batman.
