Fans have been given another look at The Batman’s iconic batsuit, as new scenes for the movie were being shot in Glasgow, Scotland.

Pictures emerged from the shoot, which involved Robert Pattinson’s stunt double riding a motorbike, as production began on the new movie.

The Dark Knight’s new suit is an evolved version of the classic black armoured outfit worn by Batman, and fans got their first glimpse of Robert in it thanks to some footage released by director Matt Reeves.

Matt had shared the footage of Robert from the camera test for the film, as they checked everything would look incredible on screen.

Not much could be seen in the initial footage, bar the bat emblem on the chest of the suit and Robert’s face in the mask.

The new shots show the full ensemble – although it’s not Robert wearing it – as rehearsals got well under way.

Camera crews could be seen setting up around the Necropolis cemetery near Glasgow Cathedral and Glasgow Royal Infirmary, as shots were planned for the Warner Bros and DC Comics movie.

Filming will be taking place in Glasgow, parts of which will become Gotham City, and residents have been warned to expect road closures around filming locations in the city.

As well as Robert Pattinson, other stars who will be featured in the movie include Zoe Kravitz, Peter Sarsgaard and Colin Farrell.

Robert recently opened up about his rigorous training regime in preparation for the role, admitting that he is worried about getting injured on set.

He told Vanity Fair: ‘Really it’s such a physical part that, more than anything, I’m afraid of getting injured, so I kind of need to be consistent with the working out.

‘I have a trainer, who I really love, in London. If someone’s not watching over you, it’s so easy to work out in a really undisciplined way.’

He admitted that he had given himself ‘tennis elbow’ in the past by trying to lift weights that were too heavy, and that he makes sure to keep up with his regime wherever in the world he is.

He explained: ‘I think simple stuff works the best. If you’re in hotel rooms all the time, planking is such an incredible thing to do.

‘It’s really meditative as well. You don’t have to think about. It’s difficult to do it wrong, and the results are pretty incredible.’

The Batman will be released in cinemas on 25 June, 2021.
