  First look at new Batman costume
Updated 01 May 2004, 15.05

Batman is another comic book movie
Film fans have been given their first glimpse of one of 2005's biggest releases, Batman Begins.

Warners, who are making the film, have released the first pics of Batman's costume as well as one of the man behind the mask, Bruce Wayne.

There have been Batman films before but this one is the first of a new set, starring Christian Bale as Batman.

Batman is the latest in a long list of films based on comic books, like Spider-Man, The Hulk and X-men.

All those films are based on comic books made by a company called Marvel, while Batman and Superman comics are made by a different one called DC.

Batman is an unusual comic book hero because he doesn't have any special powers.

Instead he uses money from his business to buy top technology and spends hours and hours in the gym to keep really fit.

Batman Begins is expected to be in cinemas in the summer of 2005.
