Some lucky fans and reviewers already had the chance to watch the newest DC movie in theaters, although the official premiere in theaters is still two days away. While we’re waiting for our chance to finally see this new blockbuster which was widely praised by the first reviews, Warner Bros and DC gave us a creative and interactive way of having fun with the movie’s official logo.

The Batman is one of the most anticipated movies of the year, and the first one of four major DC movies that will be released this year (five if we count Batgirl, which will be released exclusively on the streaming service). The Batman was originally planned to be set in the DCEU with Ben Affleck reprising the titular role, but after Affleck walked out on the project, director Matt Reeves decided to reshape the movie and set it outside of the DCEU.
“During his second year of fighting crime, Batman pursues the Riddler, a serial killer who targets elite Gotham City citizens. He uncovers corruption that connects to his own family during the investigation, and is forced to make new allies to catch the Riddler and bring the corrupt to justice.” — The Batman, official synopsis
Robert Pattinson was cast as the new Batman, which caused some negative backlash from the fanbase, but after revealing the first official footage, the fans started having more faith. Zoe Kravitz was cast as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin. Additional cast members include Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth.
The first reviews for the movie praised the story, performances, dark tone, action sequences, and movie’s narrative, although some reviewers criticized the movie’s length of 2 hours and 56 minutes. Two sequels are already planned, as well as two spin-off shows, centered on GCPD and The Penguin, respectively. Both shows are in development for HBOMax.
