The media attending CinemaCon 2021 have been able to see new footage of The Batman, the new film based on the bat; which comes just a year after the first official trailer of the new film adaptation of the character. From ComicBook offer a summary of the plot with statements by Robert Pattinson (Batman) and Matt Reeves, the director of the tape.
As he explains, this vision of Batman will be “radically different” from what we have seen in previous productions. It will not be a story of the origin of Batman, but of Bruce Wayne’s early stages as the Dark Knight. We already saw it in the first official images with the Batmobile months ago.
In one of the scenes shown they have seen Batman facing different enemies in a sequence with explosions, police officers and a lot of chaos. Batman uses a very varied cast of weapons to take down all enemies. The scene ends with a shot of Andy Serkis as Alfred; the Batmobile begins to circulate with flames coming out of the exhaust pipe. “We can’t wait for you to see The Batman in theaters next year,” Reeves said.
The Batman hits theaters on March 4, 2022
The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves and written by himself with Peter Craig, will star Robert Pattinson as Batman. Initially scheduled by Warner Bros. Pictures for June 25, 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic changed the production company’s plans, which now places the film’s release on March 4, 2022.
The cast leaves us a list of names where Robert Pattinson stands out as Bruce Wayne / Batman; Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle / Catwoman; Paul Dano as Edward Nashton / Riddler; Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon; John Turturro as Carmine Falcone; Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson; Barry Keoghan as Stanley Merkel; Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál; Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth; and Colin Farrell as Oswald “Oz” Cobblepot / Penguin.
