Let the Battinson bonanza begin. When Matt Reeves, the co-writer and director of the upcoming superhero film The Batman, shared to Twitter the first camera test of Robert Pattinson as Gotham's greatest protector, the internet practically collapsed in on itself.
For a brief moment, it felt as though the world stopped turning, a sudden halt spurred by the thousands of tweets sent out by fans responding to the big reveal.
"Time is a thing that grows scarcer everyday. What, you don't know this?"
As with any reveal of this sort, one that gives the world the first official glimpse of an actor in costume as a beloved, internationally recognized pop culture figure, reactions to Pattinson as Batman have been mixed. The majority of early responses to the reveal were positive, with countless Twitter users gushing over the first-look footage.
One user wrote,
"I'm ecstatic. This movie will be amazing."
Another added that they enjoyed both the way the Battinson suit looks and the score teased in the camera test video, writing,
"The Batman teaser looked really dope. I especially loved the tone that was playing during it. Hope to get a fleshed out version of it when it releases."
Plenty of fans analyzed the video with a keener eye, picking up on possible references to Batman's past and to other iterations of the character. Comparisons were made between the new Batsuit for The Batman and the costumes seen in Batman: Arkham Knight, Arkham Origins, and Batman: Gotham Knight. Many also noted that the video felt somewhat like a tease for a Daredevil project, since it's dimly lit and doused in a striking red hue similar to the color of the Marvel hero's suit. One Twitter user wrote,
"I'm definitely getting some Daredevil vibes. The new Batman suit looks incredible for what it is. Man I'm so excited for Matt Reeves take on the character."
One fan, who was actually one of several who presented this theory, posited that the new Bat-symbol could be made from a gun, perhaps the one used to murder Bruce Wayne's parents. That fan also wrote on Twitter that Pattinson "looks amazing," and that they "can't wait" to see The Batman.
Another fan tweeted,
"A simple camera test and I am 300 times more excited for Pattinson as Batman."
The initial wave of positive reactions to the Battinson reveal was soon met with a negative wave, naturally. Some people slammed the reveal video as "lame" and "stupid," and used plenty of unsavory words to criticize the way Pattinson looks as Batman. One use tweeted,
"So basically it's yet another ugly armor suit, only this time they couldn't even be bothered to make the emblem look good. Wow. Is there a rule at WB/DC that no Batman actor can have a decent-looking costume anymore?" Keep watching the video to see more of how fans are reacting to Robert Pattinson's Batman reveal
