It’s no coincidence that the last panel of the day at DC’s comprehensive FanDome event ended with the most popular DC character of all time, Batman.
It also wasn’t surprising that director Matt Reeves’ film looks tonally similar to Todd Philips’ recent The Joker movie, with Reeves even citing similar reference points such as Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver. This Batman is clearly a less confident, more rough-and-tumble version of the character, entering his second year on the job as the Dark Knight.
The Batman stars Robert Pattinson along with Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/Riddle, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, and Colin Farrell as Oswald “Oz” Cobblepot/The Penguin.
The Batman is currently scheduled to debut on October 1, 2021.
Check out the teaser below and let’s all hope that theaters are back to full capacity by October of 2021!
