The Batman movie directed by Matt Reeves and starring Robert Pattinson is less than two weeks away. With every passing minute, we’re getting closer to one of the most-anticipated movies of the year. And now, to increase the hype even more, a new special trailer was released during the NBA All-Star Weekend.
2022 NBA All-Star Game will be held today (February 20), and the game will be played between Team LeBron and Team Durant. Now, ahead of the game itself, NBA on TNT official Twitter account revealed a new trailer in which we can see the Bat-signal appearing above the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, where the game will be played. Soon, the Caped Crusader appears on the top of the building, along with green question marks, which we know what villain it symbolizes. The narrator cannot believe what he’s seeing, and frankly, neither can we.
The footage from the movie itself reminded us what kind of movie we can expect. Reeves prepared us a really dark movie with Batman focused on vengeance. Pattinson previously revealed that his Bruce Wayne won’t be a typical playboy, he’ll be a man who’s fighting his inner demons, and a man who doesn’t care what will happen to him while he’s chasing down the villains of Gotham. In this movie, it’s going to mainly Riddler.
“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
Initially set to be a Batfleck solo film, The Batman movie was reshaped by Reeves after Affleck left the project. Pattinson’s Batman won’t be part of the DCEU, and Affleck will appear as DCEU’s Batman for one final time in The Flash movie later this year. Two sequels with Pattinson are already planned, and two spin-off shows (GCPD and Penguin) are also in development for HBOMax. Reeves also revealed there are plans to make the Catwoman spin-off series as well.
Written by Matt Reeves and Peter Craig, and directed by Reeves, The Batman is starring Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell. The movie is set to land in theaters on March 4, 2022.
