Robert Pattinson channels LEGO Batman while on set

A new photo snapped during the filming of Matt Reeves’ The Batmam shows Robert Pattinson seemingly paying homage to the character’s appearance in The LEGO Batman Movie.

The LEGO Batman Movie was an irreverent spin on the DC Comics character, using the decades of lore around the Dark Knight for laughs. The Batman, Matt Reeves’ new take on the character that is currently shooting, is going to be the typically dark, gritty take on the character that has been favoured on the big screen.

Depsite that, a photo snapped while Robert Pattinson, who is donning the cowl for the film, was waiting inbetween takes, reminded a fan on Twitter of Will Arnett’s version of the character.
