Neymar goes full Batgeek at Paris premiere of Batman

The Caped Crusader has been a favourite among comic fans throughout generations, while the live-action movies have augmented the growth of the superhero.

Actors like Michael Keaton, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck passed down the torch to Robert Pattinson, who stepped into the Paris Premiere as the new Batman.

Since the project’s announcement, people have been eagerly waiting to witness another masterpiece.

It’s Batman in Paris, and as expected, Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar did not miss the opportunity to attend the premiere before the movie releases worldwide.

The Brazilian has always been a Batman fan, with a tattoo on his back dedicated to his superhero. He had also etched the bat sign on his hair and attended a party dressed in the legendary costume during his time in Barcelona.

Earlier this month, Pattinson had sent Neymar a personalized birthday message and had invited him to the premiere.

The PSG star surprised the fans at the premiere by joining cast members Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz.

Director Matt Reeves posted pictures of the footballer enjoying his time at the premiere with the actors as well as getting an opportunity to sit in the iconic batmobile.

The former Barcelona man clearly couldn’t control his excitement and was seen pretending to take the Batmobile for a spin at the premiere.

The private screening surely gave the 30-year-old some relief and helped him move on after a rough week that saw Nantes beat PSG. Neymar scored the only goal for Les Parisiens and missed a crucial penalty afterwards.

He will return to training on Tuesday as Parc des Princes will host Saint-Etienne this Saturday.
