Robert Pattinson’s upcoming Batman film, The Batman, is without doubt one of the most anticipated DC motion pictures. Immediately, director Matt Reeves debuted a primary take a look at Pattinson’s tackle the Darkish Knight.
Possibly shocking to some, it’s a very good sized teaser trailer. Manufacturing on the movie shut down by the pandemic, however the footage Reeves delivered to DC’s FanDome digital conference is a fairly good look at what followers of the caped crusader ought to anticipate. Like at all times in Gotham Metropolis, crime is working rampant, and a few nefarious pressure is making an attempt to get to Batman. The story takes place about two years into Bruce Wayne’s profession as Batman, a interval when he’s nonetheless only a masked vigilante. Reeves confused that Batman isn’t Batman but, and there are folks “who are afraid of him, quite frankly.”
The trailer additionally introduces a couple of key characters, together with Jeffrey Wright’s James Gordon and Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman. Andy Serkis’ Alfred can be heard. Reeves confused that many of those characters are nonetheless coming into themselves; Selina Kyle just isn’t Catwoman but, for instance. Each The Riddler and The Penguin are additionally early into their very own felony careers.
Arguably probably the most surprising a part of the trailer isn’t Pattinson and Reeves’ tackle Batman however on Bruce Wayne. This doesn’t appear like the well-kept, put collectively playboy model of Bruce Wayne that followers of Christian Bale, Michael Keaton, and even Ben Affleck’s portrayals might anticipate. Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne is a bit more unkempt, a bit of extra goth; think about me intrigued.
“Without being an origin story for him, it’s something that touches upon his origins,” Reeves mentioned.
Reeves has shared a couple of particulars over the previous couple of months, together with a earlier first take a look at Pattinson’s Batman costume and photographs of the brand new Batmobile. The movie was initially alleged to be launched on June 21st, 2021, however due to the pandemic affecting manufacturing and different movie’s releases this 12 months, The Batman was pushed to October 1st, 2021. The delay sucks for any Batman fan, however primarily based on the imagery we’ve seen to this point, being launched in the course of the month of Halloween appears fairly excellent.
