Robert Pattinson sported a rather stunning Batman suit while filming his upcoming drama Cosmopolis in Paris last month. The dark and moody ensemble is the best the actor has ever worn in a movie, and it has made quite a splash since its debut on the red carpet. The Batman suit is not only one of the most iconic looks in cinema but also one of the most popular Halloween costumes of all time. The high-quality outfit is a collaboration between Burberry and Gucci and was first worn by the actor in the 2008 film Bagdad Bag. The dark colors complement Pattinson’s striking green eyes perfectly, and the fit of the suit is impeccable. We can’t get over how incredible this suit is, so let’s take a closer look.
The History of the Batman Suit
The Batman suit made its debut appearance in the 2008 thriller Bagdad Bag, in which Pattinson plays an undercover agent tasked with infiltrating a group of terrorists. In the film, he wears a suit made by Giorgio Armani that features a Burberry tie. In 2009, Pattinson starred in Revengers Assemble, where he wore a black and white striped outfit with a cape. This is the same year that he made his Broadway debut in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The adaptation of the popular books became a worldwide phenomenon and won the Tony Award for Best Musical. The stage version featured spectacular costumes by Jovani, including a stunning red cowl-lined top for Pattinson. The following year, he featured in the crime thriller The Great Gatsby, where he wore a tuxedo and a yellow scarf. On the set of the movie, he sported the costume as a homage to the film’s famous costumes. The same year, he starred in the acclaimed film Warm Bodies, based on the novel of the same name by Isaac Asimov. The film follows the journey of Elza, a zombie who craves human flesh, and centers around her search for human companionship. Finally, in 2011, he played the part of a robber in the movie Contraband, which featured a leather outfit that is reminiscent of Batman’s iconic outfit. For his work in the film, he won the Breakthrough Performance Award at the 61st Annual Golden Globes. Since 2009, the character of Batman has been the focus of multiple memes and parodies on social media platforms such as Twitter.
The Future of the Batman Suit
We can’t wait to see what will come next for the Batman suit. The high-quality outfit is expected to be worn by Pattinson in the upcoming movie Cosmopolis. Directed by David Cronenberg, the movie is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Don DeLillo. In the book, the main character, Donny, plays an important role in the financial world as kingmaker and deals all kinds of money and power. In the film, he will be played by Robert Pattinson. The movie is set to be released in theaters on June 19, 2020. Cosmopolis will mark the first time that we have seen the character of Donny since Heath Ledger wore the iconic outfit in the actor’s final film, The Joker. Ledger and Pattinson were both superb in their performances, and it is likely that we will see more outfits from the Batman series in the future. With the help of his managers, Roger Arnell and Ian Cooper, we might see a complete collection of Batman outfits worn by Ledger and Pattinson put together for fans to buy. While we await the next installment in the Batman series, we can still enjoy the incredible legacy that the character has left behind.
