That new leather cowl could be doubling as a motorbike helmet, it seems, with new pictures emerging from the set of The Batman.

Shooting in Glasgow – after a stint in London – the new Bruce Wayne (likely Twilight star Robert Pattinson’s stunt double) has been snapped astride a vintage-style motorbike.

The murky shots see the brooding motorcyclist in a functional-looking Bat suit, as a small roller skate of a sports car, with a camera mounted on it, prepares to film alongside him.

The shoot is happening by the famous Necropolis cemetery, to the north west of the city centre, with cars being redressed with Gotham City number plates.

The stunt double is also seen riding through the grand Victorian cemetery on the Batcycle.

Could it be Bruce visiting the graves of his parents? This would tally with the movie's shooting name, which, according to the clapperboards, appears to be 'Vengeance'.

Bruce Wayne's parents were famously slain in the comics, driving the young Bruce towards his fate as Gotham's dark knight.

Since we first saw the new Batsuit, thanks to some test shots from director Matt Reeves posted online, there's also speculation that the bat insignia could be the dismantled weapon of their murderer, Joe Chill.

Not much is known about how Reeves' movie will pan out, but it's thought that it will focus on Batman as detective as much as masked vigilante.

It will also see him encounter a wealth of classic Batman villains, including Paul Dano's Riddler, Colin Farrell's Penguin and John Turturro's crime boss Carmine Falcone.

Elsewhere, Zoe Kravitz is playing Catwoman, alongside Andy Serkis's Alfred Pennyworth and Jeffrey Wright's Commissioner Jim Gordon.

The movie lands in June, 2021.
