The time has finally arrived, DC fans. As promised, we got a brand new trailer for The Batman during DC FanDome, and we have it right here for you to see. Roughly a year after the first trailer made its debut at last year’s event, director Matt Reeves, alongside stars Robert Pattinson (Batman) and Zoe Kravtiz (Catwoman) showed up to give us an even better look at the new DC Comics adaptation. Have a look.
The Batman – MainTrailer
As we can see, this is going to be a dark and gritty look at the iconic hero. We get a great sense of the world he inhabits, as well as the detective story at its center. While several villains will be involved, such as Penguin, it is Riddler who will be the main villain. Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) is playing the part in this iteration. Reeves, in a featurette released prior to the trailer, had the following to say about the movie.
“I felt that we had seen lots of origin stories. We had seen things go further and further into fantasy. And I thought, well, one place we haven’t been is grounding it the way that Year One does. To come right into a young Batman. Not be an origin tale, but refer to his origins and shake him to his core.”
The cast also includes Jeffrey Wright (No Time to Die, Westworld) as the GCPD’s James Gordon; John Turturro (the Transformers films, The Plot Against America) as Carmine Falcone; Peter Sarsgaard (The Magnificent Seven, Interrogation) as Gotham D.A. Gil Colson; Jayme Lawson (Farewell Amor) as mayoral candidate Bella Reál; with Andy Serkis (the Planet of the Apes films, Black Panther) as Alfred; and Colin Farrell (The Gentlemen, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) as Oswald Cobblepot.
Reeves (The Planet of the Apes franchise) directed from a screenplay by himself and Peter Craig. Dylan Clark (the Planet of the Apes films) and Reeves produced the film, with Michael E. Uslan, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo and Simon Emanuel on board as executive producers.
The behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar-nominated director of photography Greig Fraser (Dune, Lion), production designer, James Chinlund, editor William Hoy, editor Tyler Nelson (Rememory), and Oscar-winning costume designer Jacqueline Durran (1917, Little Women, Anna Karenina). The music is by Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino (Spider-Man, Jurassic World, Rogue One).
