With the recent announcement by Paramount that its Impossible mission sequels are delayed by another year, director Matt Reeves made sure DC fans know The Batman will not be releasing its March 4 release date by sharing IMAX’s recent tweet teasing the movie’s impending arrival. With the Covid numbers still high, some studios have started going crazy again about their upcoming releases, but it seems that Warner Bros. believes it has put enough into the film’s marketing to get a good return in March.
The Batman has appeared on a number of “most anticipated” movie lists for 2022, and considering how ridiculous the cast of Robert Pattinson in the title role was when it was first announced, the turnaround in public expectation was unprecedented and the film now looks like it’s one from Warner Bros. ‘s biggest movies of recent years. Featuring an ensemble cast that includes Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, Zoe Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright and Andy Serkis, the movie promises to be one of the darkest and most disturbing Batman movies yet to hit the big screen.
While Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy redefine what a Batman movie might be based on the derailment experience that was Batman and Robin in 1997, Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusade failed to land his own solo movie, thanks to Zack Snyder’s DCEU vision falling apart, and now Pattinson is ready for the next big iteration of That of Gotham City criminal fighter for a new generation, in all its brutal and terrifying glory. With Reeve’s Twitter post apparently doubling with the arrival of the movie in just over a month, it’s not until fans will see Batman’s future play out in movie theaters.
The Batman has already seen several delays, but Warner Bros. intends not to do it again
As one of the year’s most anticipated movies, Warner Bros. spend a lot of time and effort promoting for The Batman in the past month, with special events, secret websites, and numerous clips and interviews, which would have made it very difficult to pull the plug on its release now with just a month to go. While movies like the Impossible mission sequels have not yet started with any major promotional campaigns and can easily be pushed back by Paramount, many of the movies that are going to show up in the next few months are too deep to even consider further delays.
Following the success of Spider-Man: No Way Home in December, Warner Bros. hopes for a similar response from DC fans to the arrival of The Batman on March 4th. Of course, there are no guarantees for anything in the movie industry at the moment, because even Marvel Studios could not have foreseen exactly how big their latest Spider-Man adventure would become. Robert Pattinson’s debut as Batman would be a guaranteed $ 1 billion film under any other circumstances, and based on the amount of attention it receives online, it could still achieve it even in the current climate.
