Listen to an Epic Snippet of “The Batman” Score
Batman Day has brought us some fresh new insights into writer/director Matt Reeves’s upcoming The Batman. The first was a photo that Reeves’ revealed via Twitter, showing off Robert Pattinson in full cape and cowl. The second is a treat for the ears—composer Michael Giacchino has given us a 28-second clip of the score, which immediately plunges us into the brooding headspace one wants when imagining the world of the broodiest superhero of them all.
This is some serious orchestral work right here:

Hearing this snippet has us ready for March 4, 2022, when The Batman will hit theaters after pandemic-related delays. You can practically feel the grime and grit of Gotham in that music, and imagine Batman facing off against Paul Dano’s Riddler. We know that the Riddler isn’t the only rogue in town for The Batman—Reeves has assembled Catwoman (Zoé Kravitz), Carmine Falcon (John Turturro), and the Penguin (Colin Farrell), too. It’s going to be a real rogue’s reunion when Reeves’ reboot finally arrives.
We’ve also learned that Farrell’s Penguin will be getting his own HBO Max spin-off series, which is pretty fantastic. The main event, however, will be The Batman, and by the sounds of Giacchino’s score, it’s going to be epic.
