On the occasion of the DC Fandome event, Warner unveiled a beautiful trailer for “The Batman”. Images which reveal a little more the characters, deliver some elements of intrigue and promise an epic, explosive black thriller of crazy intensity.
The batman : the wait will be very long
The previous trailer announced the dark and brutal tone of Batman’s highly anticipated return. Images that had whetted the mouths of the public who will now be able to adjust with a new crazy trailer (at the top of the article). Expected for the March 2, 2022 in cinemas, The batman by Matt Reeves has the daunting task of succeeding Christopher Nolan’s immense trilogy, and moreover cannot ignore the paths opened by Joker. Finally, overall, it’s a Warner super-production, with Robert Pattinson in the title role, a very high quality cast, a photograph by Greg Fraiser, etc.
In short, the caliber that we find in films like Tenet, Dune, Where To die can wait. He was promised the show, so The batman will give some, and not just a little.
A vengeful Batman in pursuit of the Mystery Man
With almost 3 minutes of duration, the trailer The batman exposes several elements without revealing anything. We find most of the cast in his characters. And if we only quickly see them, the Penguin and the Mystery Man once again leave a very strong impression. We see explicitly that the main enemy will be the second, interpreted by Paul Dano, whose mystery and a form of perversity infuse these images. For the Penguin, Colin Farrell is unrecognizable but exudes a crazy intensity.
The universe of The batman clearly looks towards the genre of the crime thriller, with a black and sticky vibe. The period appears indefinite but should be roughly ours, since we see a live stream, apparently from the Mystery Man. A nod to The dark knight, where the Joker was already using a broadcast to put pressure on the masked vigilante. A way of assuming the inheritance: after the films of Nolan then the Joker of Joaquin Phoenix, being Batman’s main enemy involves a great performance.
This is what the trailer suggests by presenting a very tense face-to-face between the Mystery Man and Batman, in which the Penguin should come and put his two cents in.
A stunning visual and sound spectacle for the hero’s origins
Explosions, a priori a lot of gunfights with a Robert Pattinson who seems overpowered and ultra-determined. In search of revenge in a nocturnal and menacing Gotham, his first words are: “fear is a tool …“. The atmosphere is as dark and threatening as possible, flirting with the horrific and with a tension that rises crescendo on a brilliant musical composition that is both epic and scary.
We also discover Zoë Kravitz in action in Catwoman. This promises to be the agile and Machiavellian ally we expect in The batman. Jeffrey Wright is still there under Commissioner Gordon’s raincoat, in a very Gary Oldman style, as is Andy Serkis in Alfred. And, a full-fledged character, the Batmobile powered by its reactor in pursuit of the Penguin. How to define it, if not as something between Mad Max and a hellhound rose from the flames?
This The Batman So promises to be very different, terribly ambitious and spectacular. A Batman unrelated to the DCEU films to take us to “Dark DC”, which also confirms the two new posters. The hype is total.
