The Batman BTS Image Reveals New Look At Grappling Hook

The Batman director Matt Reeves has shared a new BTS image showing Robert Pattinson using a grappling hook. Ben Affleck was originally supposed to star, write, and direct a solo Batman movie, but after dropping out, Reeves was brought on to direct a film about Bruce Wayne's early years as the caped crusader. Plot details on The Batman are thin, but the film's main antagonist looks to be the Riddler (Paul Dano) with a small appearance of the Penguin (Colin Farrell).

Batman has never had any superhuman powers like his fellow Justice League members but has always relied on his wealth to take on the villains of Gotham City. Batman's gadgets have always been a key part of the hero, dating all the way back to his first appearance in 1939. Adam West's Batman TV series as well as Batman Forever and Batman & Robin really relied on the gimmicky side of Batman's gadgets, yet more serious Batman movies like The Dark Knight and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also included a variety of technology to give the character an advantage over his adversaries. Reeves' The Batman may end up being the most serious Batman movie to date, and it looks to also include one of Batman's most memorable gadgets.

Reeves' recently shared a BTS image of The Batman to celebrate Batman Day. The image shows a scene from the movie where Pattinson's character uses a grappling hook. In addition to the image, Reeves announced that DC FanDome will feature even more reveals from The Batman. Check out the director's original post below:
