American filmmaker, Matt Reeves has finally debuted the first official teaser trailer for The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson, at DC Fandome. Earlier this year, production on the film had to be halted, owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. So, the trailer that you see below has been put together using the 25 to 30 percent of the stuff that was filmed during that short period.
The trailer immediately gives off an R-Rated, psychological crime-thriller vibe, with Paul Dano as The Riddler setting up a dead body and a set of clues for the Batman to follow. The body, presumed to be of the mayor of Gotham, has his faced covered with duct tape and a text in red which says, “NO MORE LIES”. After which, we are introduced to Jeffrey Wright as Jim Gordon and the Gotham City Police Department, as they venture into the deeply disturbing crime scene. Set in the universe of Year-2 Batman, it looks like the Dark Knight and the Commissioner are on somewhat reasonable terms, as he steps into the vicinity showing off the grandeur, that is, the new sleek-looking Batsuit. We also get our first look at Robert Pattinson as the billionaire playboy philanthropist, Bruce Wayne, in the gothic backdrops of the corrupt and volatile city of Gotham. Selina Kyle played by Zoë Kravitz also shares a decent amount of screentime, flaunting her cat-like agility and reflexes, while attempting to rob a safe locker in the very crime scene. Collin Farell manages to capture the aura of the criminal mastermind, The Penguin, thanks to the fat suit and the prosthetics that shape his crooked image. Towards the end of the trailer, we also get an insight into the young, brash version of Batman, that we will be encountering in this film, as he takes on a bunch of goons in a rather brutal and ghastly beatdown. Which is then followed up by the deep, husky baritone uttering the words, “I’m Vengeance.” The trailer also features some glamour shots of the all-new, vintage-looking Batmobile firing up and an array of mind-blowing action sequences, that seems to have been picked up straight from the comic books.
Matt Reeves’ The Batman is currently under production and will be out sometime in 2021 (speculated release date - 1 October 2021). At the event, the director also shared some new information on the upcoming Batman spin-off drama series, focussed around the corruption, within the confines of the GCPD. Set to debut on the new streaming platform, HBO Max, the series will be a prequel to his aforementioned, The Batman movie. And will be set in Year-1 of the first establishment of the masked vigilante.
Earlier this month, we had reported on an upcoming Robert Pattinson starring Netflix psychological thriller - The Devil All The Time, of which you can check out further details here. The entirety of the Batman trailer features a dark and gloomy song from Nirvana called “Something In The Way”, which you can check out below if you are interested.
