A new rumor offers possible details for the Robert Pattinson Batsuit in Matt Reeves' The Batman saying the suit may be blue and grey.
The info comes from TheComixKid on Twitter who says:
Take this as a rumor, but we are hearing from a reliable source The Batman’s suit will be a modernized take on the West costume, incorporating blues and greys, but no longer yellow, but most importantly I’m told it will feature the white eyes, a little like this minus the yellow.

Adam West Batman Batsuit
The "West costume" referred to, is, of course, the Adam West version from the Batman '66 series; Adam West passed back on June 9, 2017 (the Burt Ward Robin will be appearing in Crisis On Infinite Earths).
A return to the blue and grey will follow a long line of black-inspired Batman suits as Michael Keaton and Tom Burton introduced their black Batsuit in Batman '89.
Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale also used a black Batsuit in The Dark Knight Trilogy, with Zack Snyder using a black and grey version for Ben Affleck in Batman vs Superman, Suicide Squad and Justice League.
It should also be said that Matt Reeves is rumored to be adapting the DC Comics "The Long Halloween" storyline which also features a blue and grey costume.
