The Batman: a striking detail of the new costume
Surprise in the late evening of yesterday, the new Batman has done officially or almost his debut with the first video, a camera test, of Robert Pattinson in costume, ready to give life to the highly anticipated The Batman of Matt Reeves.
The video, which you can find HERE, however, highlights a striking detail of the new costume.
In addition to the undoubted armour – inspired by the latest drug gaming of the Dark Knight – has the bat symbol on the chest to jump immediately to the eye because it seems to be forged from the kick of a gun!
For hardcore fans of the character, there is only one possible connection: the gun with which the criminal Joe Chill killed Martha and Thomas in the alley, Crime Alley, thus beginning the crusade Bruce Wayne's crime-fighting.
It seems, therefore, that the director Matt Reeves has taken inspiration from one of the stories contained in the recent celebratory Detective Comics #1000, specifically the one entitled “Manufactured For Use” in which Bruce Wayne recovers the gun, the fuses, and uses it as a plate to be inserted under the symbol of his costume. From the weapon of offence a protection against the criminals that point the rights to the eye-catching target on the chest of the hero.
It is not the first time that Batman has to do with this particular gun that is used by the same Dark Knight against the Reaper in Batman Year Two, or is at the center of the retcon involving Batman after the events of Zero Hour, the event crossover of 1994, in which Joe Chill was tracked down.
Remember that in the early days of his career in the comics Batman is equipped with two glaring guns, the element subsequently abandoned and replaced organically in its mythology is made real in a code that sees firearms as “weapons of the enemy” for Batman and his allies.
Different from the cinematographic point of view. If Christian Bale in the role of Bruce Wayne was ready to make out own Joe Chill outside a courtroom with a gun in Batman Begins, the Batman, Ben Affleck, didn't scorn the use of rifles and pistoloni of every kind, although it is in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that Justice League the features of these weapons were more science fiction that is realistic.
And what do you think of this new costume?
