No doubt that Matt Reeves posted the camera test of Robert Pattinson in the Batman suit to guard against exactly this kind of thing happening.
Behind-the-scenes set photos from 'The Batman' have leaked online and show a much clearer example of how Robert Pattinson's Batman suit will look. Taking its cues from Lee Bermejo's design in the comic 'Batman: Noël', the video shows what appears to be a stunt-double driving a motorcycle through a graveyard.
Catwoman: Can you come over?
Batman: Naw, fighting the Joker
Catwoman: I stole a diamond

As well as this, you've also got some still photos giving a bit more detail to the video Reeves posted just last week. All in all, it's clearly a departure from what Christian Bale, Ben Affleck and everyone else wore.
Take a look and see for yourself.

So, thoughts? The fact that it's during the middle of a rainy day, with none of the atmosphere around it, the fact that it's clearly a stunt double and as such isn't the full-blown suit means you can't really cast judgement on it.
The ears on the cowl definitely look a little odd, not to mention the gauntlets too. That there's no cape isn't any surprise - it's often CGI'd in afterwards. All in all, it's definitely different and that's a good thing. Compared to say, Spider-Man, the Batman suit can be significantly redesigned in each iteration and that allows for something unique.
This is definitely unique, and that's always a good thing. 'The Batman' arrives in Irish cinemas on June 25th, 2021.
