New “The Batman” Photo Teases Upcoming Trailer

Care for a little glimpse of The Batman to start your week? While we will be getting a proper The Batman trailer on October 16 when the second DC FanDome event arrives, writer/director Matt Reeves has seen fit to offer us a little appetizer. Reeves popped his head up from the editing bay where he’s well into post-production on the film to say hi, share a photo, and wish all of us a happy Batman Day. While the image is small and a little out of focus, it does reveal Robert Pattinson’s Caped Crusader.

Like many big films that were in or nearing production in 2020, The Batman has suffered its fair share of delays, but we’ll finally get to see this intriguing reboot on March 4, 2022. It’s been a while since we’ve gotten any big updates from The Batman. We know Reeves, the cast, and crew wrapped filming this past March, and it was last year when we got our first proper look at the film when the first trailer was revealed at the 2020 DC FanDome event. That trailer had us in its grips from the opening bars of Nirvana’s “Something in the Way,” one of the moodiest pieces of music that the legendarily moody band ever released, hinting at the troubles in Gotham. It also seemed to tease the fact that Batman’s biggest foe in the film would be Paul Dano’s the Riddler, yet we know that lunatic won’t be the only rogue lurking in the shadows. The Batman boasts a proper rogues gallery, including Zoé Kravitz’s Catwoman, John Turturro’s Carmine Falcon, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin (not glimpsed in the trailer.)

So while we wait for our second good look at the movie coming on October 16, we’ll take this little peek that Reeves is willing to offer:
