This is the reveal of the new Batman costume. I wonder if it's also a peek at the new theme?

Don't know if it's a peek or not, but Giacchino says it's his music. Director Matt Reeves also chimed in on Twitter saying 'wait until you hear the rest of it!'

So sure seems like it's something that might have been okayed and planned to use.

Yeah I liked this too. I hope they go with something like that.

For me it sounds only like a build up for and not the theme itself so I can't say anything about it. However, I like parts of the suit that was shown and can't wait when they give us the full look on new Batman.

Love what I see and hear !!

Too short for a bigger impression, but the look kind of reminds me of the aesthetic of "Year One", or even Watchmen. Or something Brian Azzarello & Eduardo Risso could have done.

The music is probably just a mock-up, can't wait to hear more. Sounds appropriate for what I think Batman is: a dark and lonely adventurer, lurking in the shadows of a post-modernist city.

I give a stand-up applause if they go that route -- both visually and musically.

The new suit/look reminds me of the Nicolas Cage character from KICK-ASS wink

... or E.T. (Sending the Signal)
... or CE3K (The Cover-up and Base Camp)
... or The Eiger Sanction (The Microfilm Killing)
... or The Fury (beginning of Death On a Carousel)
...

It's really part of Williams' musical language, kind of an equivalent to Horner's "Danger Motif".

Funny how one of the most consonant intervals can sound ominous...

Are they using Neal Hefti's classic theme?

----------
Well, yeah...they kind of are...only really slowed down and really ominous and foreboding.

Well that was really weird. And its more of a motif than a theme. Sounds like something out of Wizards!

Hefti's theme, essentially a blues, was right on and has a contrasting bridge which hardly anyone knows. Fun music for a fun show before Batman became creepy.

It’s only one note shy of Darth Vader’s Motif.

I'm really digging that a lot. It has a 70's big city detective on the prowl vibe that hopefully suggests the direction they're going with it.
