A new The Batman trailer – released unlisted on Monday – gave us a lot more insight into what the movie will be about and how various characters will interact.
This trailer is packed with information. There is no doubt that the Riddler has figured out who Batman is by now.
Throughout this mystery, Catwoman has been working with Batman to solve the mystery. Gotham City certainly appears to be going to be a little worse for wear by the end of this whole ordeal.
As seen in the trailer, the focus of the film is on Robert Pattinson’s Batman and Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman, as the two meet and appear to team up to take on Paul Dano’s The Riddler.
“The Batman” as Penguin
Reeves had previously directed “Planet of the Apes” to critical acclaim; this time he directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with Craig. Film director of photography Greig Fraser worked on “Dune” and “Rogue One”, while composer Michael Giacchino composed the score.
In this story, it’s in Year 2 of his tenure fighting crime, so this won’t be an origin story. However, he isn’t yet a grizzled crime-fighter.
Currently starring in “The Batman” as Penguin, Colin Farrell will have his own HBO Max spin-off series in which he will explore the character further. A Gotham P.D. spinoff series starring Jeffrey Wright’s James Gordon is also in development at HBO Max.
Among the guests in The Batman will be Paul Dano (The Riddler), Zoe Kravitz (Catwoman), Colin Farrell (The Penguin), John Turturro (Carmine Falcone), Jeffrey Wright (James Gordon), Andy Serkis (Alfred Pennyworth), and more. The film is written and directed by Matt Reeves.
The Batman will be released in theatres on March 4, 2022, and will be available on HBO Max on April 19, 2022.
