Okay, so this just happened. The Batman director Matt Reeves shared the logo of the much anticipated and much talked about film, headlined by actor Robert Pattinson in the titular role. As bonus, fans also got a teaser poster of a fan-art version of Robert Pattinson's Batman, created by Jim Lee, who is the Chief Creative Officer of DC Comics. Both the logo and the teaser poster feature just two colours - black and red - setting a dramatic and brooding theme.

Matt Reeves also made a promise that more about The Batman will be unveiled at the upcoming DC FanDome: "See more of The Batman at the DC FanDome global event in the Hall of Heroes this Saturday, 8/22!"

Matt Reeves had also sent the Internet into a tizzy in February, when he dropped the first look of Robert Pattinson as Batman in a dramatic teaser, which was actually a camera test clip:
Robert Pattinson's full look in the batsuit and the new batmobile were teased in March:
While the excitement over The Batman multiplies with each new reveal, not much has been revealed about the film's storyline. Robert Pattinson's Bruce Wayne will reportedly feature in a much younger persona and the film will have a slew of villains like The Penguin and The Riddler. Matt Reeves revealed in previous interviews that his film will focus on Batman's identity as the "world's best detective." The ensemble cast of the film also includes Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Real, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth and Colin Farrell as The Penguin.
The Batman is expected to release sometime in 2021.
