With filming underway on Matt Reeves's 'The Batman', rumors are starting to circulate online on what the movie's props and costumes might look like. The latest rumor doing the rounds claims that Robert Pattinson's Bruce Wayne might take a more grounded approach to crimefighting as compared to his counterpart in the Christopher Nolan movies, played by Christian Bale. 

According to the fan site Batman on Film, fans can expect to get a glimpse at both the costume and the vehicle very soon. They also report that the new Batsuit will be unlike anything we've seen from the 'Batman' movies that have been made so far which is more or less what the fans are expecting from the film.

In December last year, MEA World Wide (MEAWW) had speculated that the movie might take Batman back to his roots and introduce a more traditional costume. If the rumors are true, this might indeed be what the movie has in store for us. The report also indicates that the suit will be chiefly designed by Bruce himself so it might not have all the cool gadgets we've grown used to seeing as part of Batman's arsenal.

As for the Batmobile, we should be getting our first look at the vehicle soon with filming steadily progressing. Though we haven't received any official updates about the Batmobile, rumors suggest that Pattinson might be driving something more along the lines of a muscle car and not the tank-like Tumbler that Bale drove in the 'Dark Knight' trilogy.

The rumors are unconfirmed as of writing of this article but they are in keeping with what director Reeves has revealed so far about the film. Back in January 2019, Reeves told Syfy Wire that "It's very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. It's told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it's going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He's supposed to be the world's greatest detective, and that's not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I'd love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it's going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation."

'The Batman' is scheduled to release in theaters on June 25, 2021.
