The poster, designed by DC’s chief creative officer Jim Lee, depicts the Batsuit as worn by Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne in the film. Reeves (“War for the Planet of the Apes,” “Let Me In”) is expected to unveil the first major first look at the movie during Saturday’s DC FanDome event, which will be hosted by Aisha Tyler.
The filmmaker first started tweeting out first looks at “The Batman” in February with a video of Pattison wearing the Batsuit with a snippet of Michael Giacchino’s score for the film. After photos and video from the set leaked later that month revealing the Batcycle and a more complete look at the Caped Crusader’s signature attire in early March, Reeves tweeted an official first look at the Batmobile.
As with the rest of the industry, the film had to suspend production in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Reeves is set to restart production of “The Batman” in early September in the United Kingdom at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden. The delay forced Warner Bros. to push back the release date to Oct. 1, 2021.
The project costars Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Jayme Lawson, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell.
In July, Reeves and Terence Winter landed a series commitment from HBO Max for a spin-off series set in the world of the film that will explore the corruption within Gotham City.
