First Teaser for ‘The Batman’ Drops with Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman [WATCH]

*The first trailer for “The Batman” starring Robert Pattinson was released on Saturday during the DC FanDome, giving fans their first look at the iconic superhero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, Gotham City and an unrecognizable Colin Farrell as Penguin.

Check out the teaser above.

According to PEOPLE, the Matt Reeves-directed project will focus on Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne in the early stages of his transformation into Batman. Reeves told THR earlier this year that he’s planning a “noir Batman tale” for the planned trilogy. 

“It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional,” he shared. “It’s more Batman in his detective mode that we’ve seen in the films.”

Kravitz follows in the famous footsteps of Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway and Michelle Pfeiffer as just a few of the actresses who have portrayed Catwoman.

“The comics have a history of that. [Bruce Wayne] is supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been,” Reeves explained to THR in January. “ I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it’s going to allow his character to have an arc that he can go through a transformation.”

In October, Pattinson spoke about being cast in as the Caped Crusader, previously played by Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, George Clooney and Michael Keaton

“It’s kind of insane,” he told Esquire. “I was so far away from ever thinking it was a realistic prospect. I literally do not understand how I’ve got it, at all.”

On why he chose Robert for the role, Reeves called the “Twilight” actor “gifted,” saying, “He’s a tremendous, passionate fan of Batman…It was an incredible thing to connect with him, and to share our excitement about the character, and to work with him. He looks like Batman, but more than anything, he has the soul of someone…that can play a Batman like you’ve never seen before.”

“The Batman” is slated for a October 2021 release from Warner Bros.
