“The Batman” Trailer Reveals Robert Pattison’s Dark Knight
The Batman official trailer is here, revealed by Warner Bros. during their DC FanDome event, giving us our longest look yet at Robert Pattinson as the Dark Knight. The official trailer boasts brand new footage, including much more screen time for Zoë Kravitz’s Selina Kyle, better known as Catwoman, and an unrecognizable Colin Farrell as the Penguin. As for the film’s big bad (as far as we can tell), we get only glimpses of Paul Dano’s the Riddler, who opens the trailer up stirring his coffee in a cafe. When he’s arrested by the Gotham Police Department, what do we find in his coffee cup? A question mark, outlined in the foam. Let the games begin.
The main event here is finding out just what kind of Batman Robert Pattinson will be. As he promised, writer/director Matt Reeves is giving us a noir Batman film in which the Caped Crusader is as much a detective as he is as a superhero. We pick up the action in The Batman with Bruce Wayne already two years into his work as a nighttime vigilante for the people of Gotham. Jim Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) has been lighting up the Bat-signal for a while now, and Batman is known not just to the people of Gotham, but to his enemies, who are legion. Pattison appears as a young, lean, haunted Bruce Wayne, and one who leans into the role of Batman as an avenging angel, with the Bat-signal representing not only hope for the people of Gotham but a warning to those who do dastardly deeds.
Joining these heavyweight performers is a stellar cast, including Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, John Turturro as Gotham crime boss Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gotham DA Gil Colson, Barry Keoghan as Gotham PD officer Stanley Merkel, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, and Alex Ferns as Commissioner Pete Savage.
The Batman swoops into theaters on March 4, 2022. Check out the new trailer below:
