The Batman has a lot of interest from fans around the upcoming release, but will it be as great as fans hope? We’ll find out soon in March, and until then the hype train will keep moving. Teasing about how well the movie turned out, says producer Dylan Clark Rich that the plan is for it to be the very best Batman movie still.
Clark is especially included the Dark Knight trilogy in the assessment. That says a lot, considering The Dark Knight is especially widely regarded as one of the very best comic book adaptations of all time. With all due respect to director Christopher Nolan, however, Clark even told him directly that their goal was to Dark Knight series to become number 1 in the eyes of Batman fans.
“I told myself that Chris Nolan directly: “Look, we’re trying to be the best Batman ever made, and we’re going to try to beat you.” Matt [Reeves] is interested in pushing this character to its emotional depth and shaking it to its core. “
The Batman helmet Matt Reeves also says the decision to place the story early in Batman’s crime-fighting career was to make Bruce Wayne more recognizable. Reeves did not want to retell the original story with Bruce’s parents being murdered on screen again, this time moving forward just enough to get to it, while still facing a lot of uncertainty with his new role as a superhero. The hope is that fans with and without the Batsuit will connect with Bruce.
“We’ve seen a lot of great stories about Bruce Wayne watching his parents’ murder and then trying to find a way to deal with it by perfecting himself in Batman. But I wanted to do a story where he’s already through the origins and still knows “Not really exactly how to be Batman. It’s a Year Two story. And I wanted you to connect with him. Not just as Bruce, but as Batman.”
Robert Pattinson plays this incarnation of Bruce Wayne as part of an independent story with no connections to the DCEU or any other projects. The plan for The Batman is for it to launch its own franchise, and there are early plans for more movie sequels. There are no less than two spin-off shows also in development at HBO Max. One series will follow the officers of the Gotham Police Department, while the other will feature Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
Also record The Batman is Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon. Matt Reeves directs using a screenplay co-written with Peter Craig. Barry Keoghan also plays a character with rumors that he can be revealed as the Joker in one alternate episode of the movie.
After significant delays and a turbulent production, The Batman will finally slide into movie theaters on March 4, 2022.
Some like the cast while others would have preferred more of Tom Cruise than Reacher.
