Matt Reeves has promised us our very first look at The Batman on August 22. We will get to see Batman in action. But before that, we’ve got our first look at the new Bat Symbol. No, it isn’t just the split up gun handle that we’ve seen on Batman’s chest. It’s a proper Bat-Symbol with the two Bat ears. Take a look:
This logo came through a trademark that was filed by DC Comics on Tuesday. It totally matches the insignia on Robert Pattinson’s Bat-suit. By now, most of us know the truth behind this new Bat-Symbol. We’ve decoded in the past that the new Bat Symbol is actually designed with the handle of Joe Chill’s gun. This is the same gun which Joe Chill used to kill Bruce Wayne’s parents. So it’s like Batman is wearing vengeance on his chest. Nice!!
The suit is like an old fashioned Batman mixed with a modern tech approach which someone with a substantial wealth could make at his home by acquiring the right pieces. The cowl especially gives this notion as it seems to be hand-stitched. Another thing that we have to keep in mind along with the real-world approach is that the suit and the gadgets look like this because it is just the second year of Bruce Wayne being the Caped Crusader.
It is not an origin story, but Bruce is still figuring out the whole vigilante act. The second-year is still pretty early, and so it is highly likely that the suit, the Bat-Cycle & the Bat-Mobile will evolve as the story moves on when we get more sequels. And, it is needless to say that this evolution is necessary because we cannot continue with the Batmobile just being an upgraded American Muscle. Even though it will be pretty cool to start things off, we’d like to see a bigger and better Batmobile down the lane.
The Batman arrives on October 1, 2021. Let’s see what Matt Reeves has in store for us.
