Warner Bros. has been giving out all sorts of exciting new announcements via this weekend’s DC FanDome event. A wide variety of projects have either been announced, discussed, or given trailers and other sneak previews. Now The Batman, the highly anticipated solo film focused on the titular superhero, has finally received its first trailer at the event – and it’s definitely interesting.
It’s surprising that we’re being given a trailer at all. As you likely already know, the film won’t be out until a little over a year from now in 2021. But what’s more, the film actually had a bit of a pause in the middle of production due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Only around one quarter of the film had been shot before the production hiatus, which isn’t very much for such a massive movie that started shooting way back in January. Nevertheless, it was enough for a small trailer for The Batman to be put together. And it’s totally worth checking out.
Hopefully we’ll see more of the film and its interesting take on Batman as we get closer to the official release date. There’s definitely a lot to be processed here, but luckily, it seems like it’s safe to assume the delay hasn’t hurt the movie at all. In fact, it’s probably helped the cast and crew better prepare themselves to make this a proper Batman film – and that’s what matters most. Especially considering the film won’t be connected to the traditional DCEU film series.
Aside from actor Robert Pattinson as the titular Batman aka Bruce Wayne, the film also features a rather versatile cast. The cast for the film includes Zoe Kravitz (High Fidelity) as Catwoman, Paul Dano (Looper) as Riddler, Colin Farrell (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) as Penguin and John Turturro (Transformers) as Carmine Falcone. Then, aside from the interesting selection of villains, we also have Andy Serkis (Black Panther) as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright (Casino Royale) as Jim Gordon, Peter Sarsgaard (Black Mass) as Gil Colson and Jamie Lawson as Bella Real.
Audiences will finally be able to see Robert Pattinson in The Batman when the film hits theaters on October 1, 2021.
