Warner Bros. has released a trailer for “The Batman,” which was first revealed during DC Fandome. For those who are not aware, the film will star Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/ Batman. The trailer reveals that the film will have a very different setting compared to previous Batman films. During the panel they confirmed that the film will be set in a separate universe from other DC films with sequels potentiality in the works.
The cast consists of:
- Robert Pattinson: Bruce Wayne / Batman
- Zoë Kravitz: Selina Kyle / Catwoman
- Paul Dano: Edward Nashton / Riddler
- Jeffrey Wright: James Gordon
- John Turturro: Carmine Falcone
- Peter Sarsgaard: Gil Colson
- Barry Keoghan: Stenely Merkel
- Andy Serkis: Alfred Pennyworth
- Colin Farrell: Oswald Cobblepot / Penguin
- Gil Perez-Abraham: TBD
- Charlie Carver: TBD
- Max Carver: TBD
Seeing the trailer the film is clearly more of a detective film versus the usual action flicks we got in the past. When the film was first announced I was quite skeptical, although now I am more intrigued since they are going towards a different direction.
The Batman will premiere in theaters on October 21, 2021.
