Matt Reeves’s The Batman has officially started production and this news has been revealed by no one other than the director himself. No doubt more news will start trickling from the sets as production continues. So we thought about showing you a fan trailer which gives a taste of the epicness in store when Robert Pattinson debuts as the Dark Knight next summer. Check out the video below:
Fan Trailer Of The Batman Shows Just How Epic Matt Reeves’s Movie Can Be
The fan trailer showcases Batman, Catwoman, Penguin and Commissioner Gordon in main roles. Pic courtesy: dailysuperheroes.comThe fanvideo is created by Youtuber StryderHD and makes use of various clips from past Batman movies as well as Pattinson’s other projects. Several shots from Pattinson’s movie Cosmopolis have been used since the actor’s look in the movie, with the swept back hair and sharp suits resembles Bruce Wayne a lot. The trailer gives us a pretty good idea of how Pattinson might look as the Caped Crusader.
But Pattinson isn’t the only one in the fan trailer. It also showcases Colin Farrell, Zoe Kravitz and Jeffrey Wright. They will appear opposite Pattinson as the Penguin, Catwoman and Commissioner Gordon, respectively. Farrell’s clips have been taken from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, since he plays a villain there like a charm. It acts as a good stand in for his role ad Oswald Cobblepot. But fans should be ready to see a different Farrell in The Batman since set photos have revealed that he has increased his weight and bleached his hair to play Penguin.
As for Catwoman, shots from 2004’s Catwoman are used to represent Kravitz’s Selina Kyle. We can only hope that her suit will be a lot better than the one Halle Berry wore. For Gordon, the fan trailer creator has used clips from Westworld and Source Code.
Many Batman Characters Excluded From The Fan Trailer
There are a lot of other Batman characters in the movie cast but they don’t get depicted in the trailer. This includes Paul Dano as the Riddler, John Turturro as the crime boss Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as District Attorney Gil Colson and Jayme Lawson as Gotham City mayoral candidate Bella Real.
We can’t wait to check out Matt Reeves’s take on The Dark Knight as it looks like it will be a noir detective thriller rather than a straight up Superhero bash. For now it looks like Reeves is drawing inspiration from the comics “Hush” and “The Long Halloween“.
The Batman will release in theaters on June 25th, 2021.
