The debut of filmmaker Matt Reeves' cinematic version of The Dark Knight, "The Batman", is less than a few days away, and we are gearing up to see it. Find out release date, plot details, cast and everything we know so far!
When a vicious serial murderer named the Riddler begins murdering major political people in Gotham, Batman is forced to probe the city’s secret corruption and question his family’s participation. Warner Bros.’ next superhero movie, ‘The Batman’, directed by Matt Reeves and starring some of Hollywood’s brightest talent, is a fresh take on the world’s greatest detective.
The Batman stars Robert Pattinson and is a solo movie similar but not connected to this year’s Joker origin story. The much-anticipated first trailer premiered in August 2020 at the virtual DC FanDome, igniting the Internet with the first neon-tinted look at Pattinson in the titular role.
Pattinson’s version of Bruce Wayne and Batman comes with his own set of Millennial demons. A 2 minutes and 24 seconds trailer was set to a cover of Nirvana’s “Something in the Way.”
The official Cast of Batman
- Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson
- Barry Keoghan as Stanley Merkel
- Alex Ferns as Commissioner Pete Savage
- Rupert Penry-Jones as Mayor Don Mitchell
- Gil Perez-Abraham as TBC
- Charlie Carver as TBC
- Max Carver as TBC
- Con O’Neill as TBC
However, Pattinson said in his official statement that his Batman character would be different from Christian Bale’s (Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy) and Michael Keaton’s (Tim Burton’s “Batman” and “Batman Returns”) interpretations and would be just as “crazy and perverse” as the indie film characters he’s played in recent years.
The Batman will be released in theatres in the USA on March 4, 2022, on HBO Max. The film has already been postponed twice owing to the ongoing pandemic, but it now looks like it will be released in theatres worldwide at the beginning of March.
However, the UK release date has yet to be determined. Still, production is expected to restart in September 2020 with the condition that the film is shot on purpose-built sets rather than on location, as was the case before the global lockdown.
But unfortunately, The Batman will not debut on the studio’s streaming platform until 45 days after it hits theatres, according to the studio’s 2021 release timetable. Expect it to arrive no later than April 18 at the earliest.
If we judge according to the trailers, we know much more about Batman’s story. Both Batman and Jim Gordon are prodded and poked by the Riddler, forcing them to investigate a string of murders. It’s not unusual for Gotham to pile up the body count, so don’t be surprised if it’s the latter. It’s also evident that Catwoman and Batman’s relationship will play a significant role in the picture so that we might sense a budding romance.
However, the plot of Batman is unknown, but it is expected to centre on Bruce Wayne’s younger, more vulnerable years. According to some reports, the film will take place in the 1990s and feature a younger, less grizzled version of the Caped Crusader who will rely on his detective abilities rather than his sheer power. Batman, like Batman Forever, will have Bats facing off against various villains from his career.
