The long awaited trailer of upcoming film The Batman was finally released on 22nd August after DC FanDome convention. The 8 hour event highlighted some of the biggest announcement by Warner Bros and DC Universe including the newest retake on the story of a scary masked vigilante.
The Planet of the Apes director, Matt Reeves directed this reincarnation with Robert Pattinson in the lead role. Fans of the franchise reacted with disbelief when he was casted as the caped crusader last year. However, after watching the trailer, most of the movie goers have changed their opinion about the twilight heartthrob.
Other prominent members of the cast include Westworld’s Jefferey Wright as Commissioners Gordon, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Colin Farrell as Penguin, Paul Dano as The Riddler, and John Turturro as the mafia boss Carmine Falcone.
The Batman Trailer Reveals The Riddler As The Main Villain
From the trailer it seems that this movie will be centered on a rather younger version of Bruce Wayne; taking on the most vicious gangs and anarchists of Gotham city.
The trailer opens up with the witty criminal, The Riddler, who just covered his victim’s face with duct tape and sends an ominous message saying no more lies. Cryptic messages appear many times in the trailer suggesting that the Dark Knight would be challenged not just physically but intellectually throughout the film. Some fans have started to extract the riddles and solve them in their free time.
The Riddler might be the only villain to topple Batman in the battle of wits as he has done many times in the past.
DC fans have great expectations with the direction this character.
Apart from the mysterious backdrop of The Riddler, Matt reeves hs mentioned that it would be a detective noir which would test everybody’s favorite hero in the dangerously political and notorious world of Gotham.
Hollywood Fans Shocked To The Core
One particular scene from the trailer was widely appreciated because it dove deeper into the essence of the character. The Batman does not consider himself an individual, he stands like a symbol of vengeance against the criminals; as he mentioned after delivering a heavy beat down to a goon in the trailer.
It made people literally jump out of their seats which folks on social media enjoyed a lot. After watching the trailer, they searched for visual reactions of different reviewers. It shows how Robert Pattinson succeeds in one of the fundamentals of playing this character: intimidation
Batman fans would be further stunned to know that this dreadful trailer was made when only 25% of the film was shot. The production was halted due to the coronavirus crises which is expected to resume in September.
There is no doubt about the leadership which has assured the fans that they won’t be disappointed like they were from some previous editions in DC Universe such as Justice League. Matt Reeves has ample experience in creating cool science fiction films in the past like Planet of The Apes, and Cloverfield.
Can It Cure The Twilight Curse Of Robert Pattinson?
One awful truth is lingering on Pattinson’s head like a rainy cloud. His exceptional filmography is denied in an instant with the mention of just one film; Twilight. The teen vampire saga received mixed reviews but made Pattinson a target of brutal memes.
Nonetheless, his transformation into a Dark Knight might have brought people to realize his acting prowess beyond Twilight.
