The leak includes several photos (seen below) and a video of what appears to be a stuntman in the Batsuit, riding a motorcycle alongside of woman in a helmet—likely the stunt performer for Kravitz. It can be seen further down as well; the rider skids to a mild wipe-out on the slick ground.
Leaked photos reveal the new Batman suit (being worn by Robert Pattinson’s stunt double)
for Matt Reeve’s ‘THE BATMAN’ film.

Pattinson will be the the most recent in a long line of actors who have worn the mask as the titular comic-book character—a list that includes Christian Bale (of the renown Nolan trilogy), George Clooney (renown in his own right, but not so-much for Batman), Val Kilmer, and Michael Keaton.
For Pattinson, his involvement in The Batman is the fulfillment of a childhood dream. Growing up in England, he watched the Tim Burton Batman movies. “When I was a kid, it was the only outfit that I had,” Pattinson told Variety in an interview.

He would not reveal exactly where he used to wear his Batman costume. “If I actually said it in an interview, I would definitely have a lot of abuse afterwards,” he laughed. “If I successfully play the character, I can say it at the end.”
Zoe Kravitz has also opened up about her experience in working on the highly-anticipated film.
“It was a little scary, but also whenever I get nervous about something, I feel it pushes me to a better place anyway, so I welcome the nerves… if you start focusing too much on what people are going to think you’re doing yourself a disservice, it’s almost like you’re putting your energy in the wrong place.”

“I think Robert’s a great actor… he’s going to be great,” Affleck said in the interview, seen in the video below.
Affleck admitted that he felt that he needed to step down from the role. He “had an opportunity to write and direct and kind of star in a standalone Batman [film],” but it occurred around the time that he “kind of lost interest in those stories.”
The new film, slated for a 2021 release, is thought by some to be stylized in a way that is reminiscent of the Batman: Year One comic-book series. As the name suggests, it recounts Bruce Wayne’s first year as the vigilante crimefighter.
Judging by the similarity in images seen below, it may be drawing some inspiration from that time period.
If that is the case, then Batman will have his hands full.
The film has also announced a star-studded cast to fill the roles of various well-known villains in the franchise—Colin Farrell as The Penguin, Paul Dano as The Riddler, and Andy Serkis as Alfred.
I actually like the look of the new Batman. Very modern year one plus some zero year. pic.twitter.com/JGaJG7ZnuS
