A realistic, dark and violent version of the Batman: this is what promises us “The Batman”, expected on March 2, 2022 in our theaters. And the new trailer hits the nail on the head, showing a little more of Catwoman.
1 year, 1 month and 24 days. This is the time that separates the two trailers of The Batman. An eternity for the many fans who were blown away by the first images of Matt Reeves’ film, whose theatrical release has since been postponed to March 2, 2022. But the director took advantage of this second DC FanDome to drive the point home, and it was worth the wait.
As in the first trailer, it is the Mystery Man played by Paul Dano who opens the ball. And this time, the latter is no longer masked and committing a crime, but with his face uncovered as the Gotham City police arrest him.
Never mind, it is from his cell that he will torment the Dark Knight. With puzzles that will push the hero to force his talents as a detective, in order to come to the end of this deadly game which could be linked to the acts of his father, as shown in one of the shots.
Unveiled as part of the 2020 DC FanDome, the first trailer was made up from the footage that was then shot – 25% of the total. The news can be based on the entirety of the shots, and confirm that the relationship between Selina Kyle (Zoë Kravitz) and Batman (Robert Pattinson) will be of great importance in the narrative.
And that the young woman will be, like Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis) who finally shows himself, worried about the violence that the Batman is capable of unleashing, with a rage that he is little known on the big screen.
If they still let the mystery hang over the plot and how the Penguin (Colin Farrell, in bad shape at the end) will fit into it, these images confirm the impression of August 2020: The Batman will be realistic, dark and violent. And some scenes promise to be impressive, such as the one which shows the Batman advancing relentlessly towards his enemies who shoot him in vain, in a setting lit by gunfire.
On March 2, 2022, a new page in the history of Batman on the big screen will be written. Thanks to Matt Reeves, Robert Pattinson or Michael Giacchino, whose musical theme we hear again unveiled at the same time as the costume.
We look forward to seeing and hearing more but, in view of the images presented so far, all the lights seem to be green. Even if the red (on the posters) and the black seem to be the dominant colors of the feature film.
