DC FanDome has added a shot of adrenaline to our summer weekend an impressive lineup of content and first-looks at upcoming releases. Saturday’s release of the first teaser trailer for Matt Reeve’s highly anticipated The Batman provided an impressive glimpse of what we can expect in the film.
With only 25% of the film shot what was revealed this weekend included glimpse of a darker Gotham reminiscent of the Nolan and Burton films. We also see a younger looking Batman (with Robert Pattinson assuming the titular role), James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright), Catwoman (Zoe Kravitz), the Batmobile, and the lair where Bruce has setup as his center of operations. There were a couple of action sequences also included.
The highlights for me included Batman giving a merciless beat down to a supposed henchman who dared to challenge him followed later to a response of “vengeance” when asked who he was, instead of Batman.
I did have some initial reservations about this film, however, based on what I saw today I am adding this film very high on my ‘must-see’ list.
