At DC FanDome, Robert Pattinson made his first proper appearance as the new Batman and the film’s writer-director Matt Reeves’ upcoming standalone reboot of The Dark Knight. The second reboot of Bruce Wayne, Pattinson is put on the cowl, and therefore, there is an uncertainty among the citizens of Gotham City as to what this vigilance is. Reeves reiterated that this is a detective story, similar to Chinatown, and the restart of The Capped Crusader will give us the origins of Catwoman and Penguin, which are not fully formed versions that fans of the comics book know them for.
The cast and crew:
In addition to Pattinson as Bruce Wayne / Batman, stars Zoe Kravitz as anti-hero Selina Kyle / Catwoman, Paul Dano as supervisor Edward Nashton / Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as commissioner James Gordon, John Terturo featured as mob boss Carmine Falcon. Peter Sarsgaard as Gotham District Attorney Gil Colson, Jamie Lawson as Gotham Mayor candidate Bella Reuel, Andy Serkis, and Butler Alfred Pennyworth as Bruce’s mentor, and Colin Farrell as Supervisor Oswald Cobblepot / Penguin. Gil Peres-Abraham, Charlie Carver and Max Carver have undeclared roles.
Behind the scenes:
Behind the scenes, Reeves is handling a script he wrote with Matson Tomlin (Project Power). Reeves is one of the producers on The Batman alongside Daleen Clarke. Michael Giacchino is composing the Batman soundtrack, while Greig Fraser is the cinematographer. This is a production of DC Films, and 6th and Idaho Productions. Warner Bros. Pictures is a global distributor.
Production is expected to resume in London in early September after being suspended in March due to a coronavirus epidemic. According to Reeves, one-fourth of the filming is reportedly done. Due to the epidemic, Batman was also pushed back three months from its original June 2021 release date.
The Batman is expected to release in theaters worldwide on October 1, 2021.
It’s got everything you wanted to see: the Batsuit, Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman, Gotham in all its splendid qualities, and Robert Pattinson’s Capped Crusader declaring that she is “vengeful.” Oh yeah
This trailer is on the world’s greatest detective investigating a murder mystery as an unknown person (of course Paul Dano Riddler, given his love of riddles) via a series of deadly messages to The Dark Knight Taunts from, covert or otherwise.
From there, Gotham’s wider world takes center stage: Catwoman fights the dark knight, while we get some small glimpses of the prison cells of Batcave and the GCPD, and Gotham’s crime-infested, rain-soaked streets.
Then there is the literal bone-crunching scene that is sure to get people talking. He encounters a goon and breaks his arm before dealing with the repeated crushing of his skull. Batman of the past – from Bell to Keaton, to Clooney – has never lost his hands, but this Batman looks like he could literally take his hands. This may be far-fetched for some, but we’ll have to see how far this Batman has been pushed and react to the way he works.
It is R-Batz himself, however, who attracts the most attention. The first footage of the action as Bruce Wayne calms any apprehension that could befall any younger actor slipping on a cape and cowl. Batman’s voice makes a good first impression.
If a glimpse of Pattinson as Batman was not enough, the Fandom has taken the stuff elsewhere.
