A man of flesh and blood can be ignored, can be destroyed. But as a symbol, he can be incorruptible. We now have our first look at what the symbol will look like in Matt Reeves’ forthcoming The Batman, as the filmmaker has revealed the batsuit Robert Pattinson will don in the movie.

Reeves shared a screen test video of the suit. It’s hard to tell if it’s actually Pattinson under that cowl, but the chin certainly looks familiar.

Either way, it’s the details fans are going to be geeking out over. At the center of a sturdy looking chest plate is a metal bat-symbol that looks positively mechanic, as if there’s some action it could take. The armor itself looks very rich-man-in-a-garage crafted with many interlocking plates, as opposed to the high-tech protective suit from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy.

The cape and mask are particularly interesting, with what appears to be stitching visible on the latter, as if it’s more of a leather piece than a helmet. Meanwhile, that’s the highest collar we’ve seen on a live-action Batman outside of the Mech Suit from Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeThose two features together feel somewhat reminiscent of the outfit artist Mike Mignola created for the 1989 steampunk one-shot Batman: Gotham by Gaslight with writer Brian Augustyn.

That actually would make some sense for The Batman, as Reeves has long touted the film’s focus on the hero’s title of World’s Greatest Detective. In fact, TheWrap reports that insiders claim the film will focus on Bruce Wayne’s second year as the Dark Knight.

See what you think of the new batsuit for yourself by checking out the video below.
