As the title above should have made clear, Wednesday brought a trio of images showing off the latest incarnation of the Batmobile, i.e. Batman's preferred method of transportation to and fro run-ins with various nefarious individuals.
The Batman director and co-writer Matt Reeves dropped off the images on Twitter, as seen below, though he failed to include the nickname "the Pattmobile" while doing so. If the aesthetic here is any indication, it's easy to imagine Batman (this time portrayed by Robert Pattinson) whipping around in this thing with Charli XCX's "Vroom Vroom" on repeat.
Though Pattinson is quite clearly an excellent choice for the part, there was some unfortunate division among some fans upon confirmation that he would be joining up with Reeves for the post-Affleck era of the beloved character (who is definitely not a superhero). Pattinson himself addressed some of the pressure that came with coming anywhere near the Batman universe, including the fact that mere casting rumors stood a chance at sinking the boat.
"It's just nerve-wracking because I was really excited about it and you think: really, is this how I'm going to lose this role?" he told Time Out back in January. "It's the most annoying circumstances to lose something."
The Batman is out on June 25 of next year. Pattinson is joined in the cast by Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, and more. Before Batman's arrival, Pattinson will be seen in Christopher Nolan's reliably mysterious Tenet, out this summer.
