“He’s out to clean up a city that likes being dirty.”
A new poster for Robert Pattinson’s The Batman illustrated by famous DC artist Lee Bermejo features a strong callback to Frank Miller’s Year One.
The Batman is still over a year out, with principal photography expected to conclude soon, but that hasn’t stopped the marketing push that began when filming first started. Several legendary DC artists have already shared posters created by them for the upcoming film, like Jim Lee and Bill Sienkiewicz. Lee Bermejo becomes the latest artist to reveal his take on Robert Pattinson’s The Batman with a twist on a famous cover for Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One.
Batman: Year One is one of many comic books that have inspired Matt Reeves for the upcoming film following Robert Pattinson’s younger Bruce Wayne. In Lee Bermejo’s The Batman poster, the art borrows elements from David Mazzucchelli’s cover for the fourth issue of Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One. You can check out the awesome poster below.

The plot of The Batman is being kept under wraps, but we know the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as Gotham City’s Caped Crusader. The Batman will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the character. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films starring Pattinson.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, Robert Pattinson stars as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
