Robert Pattinson has been making great decision in terms of films, having received acclaim for his role in The Lighthouse. What accelerated the buzz around the actor was him becoming the next face of the DC superhero Batman.
As it was reported earlier, director Matt Reeves had begun shooting for the Robert Pattinson-led movie The Batman in late January.

Now, the director has shared a clip from the camera test of the film, thereby giving DC fans long-awaited first look at Robert Pattinson as the Batman. Reeves shared the look via Twitter.
The video clip begins with an ascending tune teamed with darkness, slowly giving way to red hue as the Dark Knight becomes visible.
The nearly one-minute clip teases Robert Pattinson suited up in a brand new suit and his jaw looking prim and proper.
