First Trailer For Robert Pattinson’s The Batman Released

the batman 2021 trailer

Three days after director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) dropped poster and logo on social media, we finally got the first trailer for his upcoming The Batman movie starring Robert Pattinson. Production on The Batman has been suspended due to ongoing pandemic and is now scheduled for October 1, 2021 release date.

While not revealing much, this trailer gave us a first look at Pattinson’s Batman, James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright), the Riddler (Paul Dano), Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), and Penguin (Colin Farrell). Based on the footage it seems it will be a dark and gritty detective noir story (parts of it reminded me of David Fincher’s Se7en), just like Reeves announced when he took the job. This is actually a good thing as Batman in the comics is considered as the world’s greatest detective. While the trailer doesn’t look bad I’m not blown away either. I wasn’t thrilled when they hired Robert Pattinson to play Batman and now after seeing him in action I’m still not sold – I don’t know, something is just wrong, he doesn’t look convincing either as Batman or Bruce Wayne. I wasn’t also impressed by the costumes shown in the trailer but let’s hope they’ll fix it until movie is released.

While I like this new approach to Batman (the movie will be set in the ’90s and be more of a detective noir story), I’m still worried about Robert Pattinson as Batman and the fact they are putting three Batman villains in the same movie (The Penguin, The Riddler and Catwoman) which immediately reminded me of such overstuffed mess like Spider-Man 3 (or BvS or Justice League).
