Warner Bros. have released the teaser trailer for the upcoming DC film The Batman that was shown at the end of the panel at DC FanDome.
Not much of a plot was given away until this showcase at DC FanDome and it looks like Paul Dano’s The Riddler will be the primary villain as the teaser indicates a gritty Gotham (go figure!) and a more detective-focused Batman as the tone of the film gives this Fincher crime drama vibe in the vein of Seven. Interesting use of Nirvana’s ‘Something In The Way’ too.
Considering that director Matt Reeves said that they’ve only shot 25% of the film so far and from what is shown in the two-minute tease, I’m liking what I’m seeing. The suit looks fine, Robert Pattinson’s growl suits the part perfectly and while we get glimpses of Zoë Kravitz’s Selina Kyle aka Catwoman and Jeffrey Wright’s Jim Gordon, Andy Serkis and Paul Dano appear in voice only as Alfred and Riddler, while a key player haven’t been shown yet…Colin Farrell’s Oswald/Penguin.
The Batman stars Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, Andy Serkis, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Jayme Lawson, Gil Perez-Abraham, Charlie Carver, Max Carver and Barry Keoghan.
The Batman is scheduled for cinematic release on the 1st October 2021.
