The cast of Batman is slowly starting to come together with now Andy Serkis being cast as Alfred Pennyworth. But another thing which is also really important for Batman is the batsuit. The style and colour of the bat suit has certainly evolved over years of live action adaptation. It has gone from being blue and grey in the Adam West version to all black in the Christian Bale or Ben Affleck version. It’s time to find out what Pattinson’s suit is going to look like in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and the rumour mill is suggesting that Reeves has opted to turn back time and go back to the original suit colour.
Pattinson’s Batsuit To Be Blue And Grey
This rumour has emerged courtesy of twitter account handle @TheComixKid. The owner has claimed that Pattinson’s suit in The Batman will be “a modernized take on the West costume.” It’s said that the outfit will be “incorporating Blues and Greys, but no longer yellow.” Here’s the tweet in question:
Take this as a rumor, but we are hearing from a reliable source #TheBatman’s suit will be a modernized take on the West costume, incorporating Blues and Greys, but no longer yellow, but most importantly I’m told it will feature the white eyes, a little like this minus the yellow https://t.co/vnGP0OFwPe

Better To Take It As A Rumour
Just like the twitter account holder says, it’s best to keep expectations and opinions low till we actually see the finished version. But it’s worth noting that if Reeves does decide to go for the blue and grey version of the suit then the cowl will presumably have white eyes. Now that is something which everyone wants to see.
Also, it’s worth it to mention that while we may not have seen it yet, but Pattinson has already worn the batsuit. While it might not be the final version which Reeves’ chooses to put in the film, but the actor did put on a costume as part of his screening process to land the part. Unfortunately, for him it wasn’t that surreal an experience since it took like five people to squeeze him into it.
The Batman will hit cinemas on June 25th, 2021
