Robert Pattinson has teased his incarnation of Batman will be "radically different" to what has come before.

The star will be the latest actor to take on the Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves's upcoming The Batman, and those attending CinemaCon were lucky enough to see some brand new footage from the DC movie.

Included were some behind-the-scenes interviews with the key players, as Pattinson explained how the project enticed him.

"For some reason, Batman has always stood out as one of the major characters of the 20th century, and so many people connect with it on such a deep level for so many different reasons," he said (via Entertainment Weekly).

"From the first conversation I had with Matt about it, I just knew that there was something radically different [here]."

Also during the event, Reeves opened up drawing inspiration for Bruce Wayne's early years fighting crime from Batman: Year One, admitting: "I felt that we've seen lots of origin stories.

"It seems things go further and further into fantasy, and I thought, well, one place we haven't been is grounding it in the way that Year One does, to come right in to a young Batman, not being an origin tale, but referring to his origins and shaking him to his core.

"You can have it be very practical, but I also thought it could be the most emotional Batman movie ever made," the director added.

Meanwhile, it's been confirmed that Colin Farrell's Penguin will only appear in "five or six scenes" in The Batman.

"I'll get a little bit uncomfortable for the f**king nine minutes I have, and then the rest of it, I cannot wait to see how [director Matt Reeves] brought this world to life," he said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast.
