And just like that I have my most anticipated movie of 2022. I already new “The Batman” would be in the running, but after the release of the new trailer over the weekend as part of DC FanDome 2021, I’m more convinced than ever that director Matt Reeves has something big in store for us. And just as exciting, we won’t have to wait until the summer to see it.
The new trailer is a dark and moody spectacle that captures the very essence of Gotham City and the Dark Knight. Reeves gives us plenty of cool glimpses at key characters including Paul Dano’s Riddler, Zoë Kravitz’s Catwoman, and Jeffrey Wright’s Jim Gordon. And of course there’s Robert Pattinson’s Batman, a more pained and violent take on the character that really shows in the trailer. And those final 45 seconds had me coming out of my seat. I LOVE the look of this and they can take my money now!
“The Batman” opens in theaters on March 4th, 2022. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
