The first teaser trailer of ‘The Batman’ starring Robert Pattinson as the caped crusader has been unleashed in the DC FanDome convention and fans can’t keep calm about the “darkest” Dark Knight.
The promo has a very noir-ish tone and resembles old Hollywood crime movies and Detective Comics from the Golden Age in tone. There will certainly be humour to counterpoise the solemnity and bleakness but this teaser at least suggests this film is not going to be like conventional MCU movies.
The trailer also introduces the other characters, including Jeffrey Wright as detective James Gordon and Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle. While Andy Serkis hasn’t appeared, his voice as Alfred can be heard. The trailer also gives us a glimpse of an unrecognisable Colin Farrell as The Penguin.
Director Matt Reeves said at the convention that this version of The Batman isn’t an origin story but will “touch upon his origins.” The film takes place two years into Bruce Wayne’s career as The Batman, where he is still a vigilante.
