Director Matt Reeves has dropped the first look at Robert Pattinson in The Batman and fans are going wild for the 55-second “camera test” clip, poring over it for any clue or hint about the movie.

For example, the video teases Pattinson’s dramatic Bat-jaw and potentially the new bat-symbol, too, which eagle-eyed fans are speculating could be made from the gun that killed Bruce Wayne’s parents.

But fans are finding other causes for excitement beyond Battinson. Reeves’ first look is drawing comparisons to Netflix’s Daredevil as the dark, red lighting, and leather-heavy suit recall the opening credits of the Marvel series. The correlation is so strong in fact, that #Daredevil is also trending.

The footage also offers a first listen to composer Michael Giacchino’s ominous score. In just 55 seconds the score, costume, and first look of Pattison as Bruce Wayne have expectations soaring for the film’s 2021 release.
