Either you die a hero or you live long enough to see countless Batman reboots. The one thing we can say for sure about Matt Reeves’ “The Batman,” starring Robert Pattinson, though, is that it’s certainly unlike any other version to date.
The long-awaited trailer dropped in August 2020 during the virtual DC FanDome, setting the internet ablaze with the first neon-colored look at Pattinson in the title role. Featuring a cover of Nirvana’s “Something in the Way,” Pattinson’s take on Bruce Wayne and Batman comes with his own set of Millennial demons.
Peter Sarsgaard, who plays Gotham District Attorney Gil Colson, teased during a February 2020 interview with SiriusXM radio that the film will draw inspiration from various alternative rock bands like Nirvana and the Pixies to create its atmosphere and tone. sandy. “It’s so raw in that way,” Sarsgaard said. “That’s how I feel about this. It is not sanitized. He has pure power, pure emotionality.”
The casting of Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as The Penguin, and Paul Dano as The Riddler only added to the next-gen theme. Could this be Pattinson’s most iconic moody role since “Twilight”? We joke; Unfortunately, Pattinson has masterfully displayed his intense vulnerability on screen in indie favorites like “The Lighthouse” and “Good Time,” which no doubt ultimately led him to play the Dark Knight.

Director Matt Reeves stated in April 2020 that fans shouldn’t expect to see a young, orphaned Bruce Wayne find his calling in “The Batman.” In fact, the movie isn’t an origin story at all.
“What I related to in the Batman story is that he’s not a superhero in the traditional sense,” Reeves explained. “If he has a superpower, he is the ability to resist… He is a very alive character, and to tell a version of Batman that is not about how he became Batman, but about the early days of being Batman to see him again ways. , that was a way of doing something that has not been done”.
