Pictures of Batman’s new suit for The Batman leaked online and they show a rather different looking dark knight. The leaked photos show what appears to be the caped crusader riding on a motorcycle through a rainy cemetery.
The new suit keeps things fresh by sticking to the dark black attire Batman has worn since being created in 1939. Though a few key components are missing from Robert Pattinson’s take on the master detective. One of the most iconic pieces of gear not included with the costume is his cape nor his bright yellow tactical belt containing every bat item the hero needs to fight crime.
Though a plot has yet to be released it is theorized the story will follow events feature in Batman: Zero Year. Both his wardrobe and the motorcycle look similar to the art in the comic series.
The Batman is filming in Glasgow, Scotland at the Glasgow Necropolis cemetery. The pictures show Batman riding through the cemetery on the all too familiar Batcycle. However, the machine just appears to be a normal motorcycle with a bat-shaped front end. It could turn out to be one of the coolest vehicles since Christian Bale’s cycle in the Dark Knight.
Along with the pictures, a video also leaked online showing Batman riding on his motorcycle through city streets. He is seen riding next to another rider, who some presume to be Catwoman played by Zoë Kravitz.
Catwoman: Can you come over?
Batman: Naw, fighting the Joker
Catwoman: I stole a diamond

Director Matt Reeves posted a photo announcing filming begun on January 27. That was shortly followed by a camera test with music by Star Trek composer Michael Giacchino.
Joining Pattinson and Kravitz is Colin Farrell as The Penguin, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Jeffrey Wright as commissioner James Gordon.
The Batman is set to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
