The new movie, due to be released in October 2021, will feature the English actor Robert Pattinson. The title? Just The Batman.

Anticipation is growing for the new Batman movie since the first trailer was officially released on YouTube (you can find it at the end of this article) telling of the new adventures of the masked hero who has always watched over the nights of Gotham City.

The movie is called The Batman (due out in October 2021 after the global pandemic first stopped filming, then pushed the release date forward from 21st June next) and will be directed by Matt Reeves with the British actor Robert Pattinson playing the legendary lead.

For Reeves this new Batman, though it will keep the darkness of previous films directed by Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan, will also have a touch of the thriller/psychological mystery in the style of David Fincher in the 90s. Did anyone mention Seven?

Here is waht Reeves had to say on the website of The Hollywood Reporter: “I’m hoping for a story that’s exciting but also moving. My Batman will be more of a detective compare with what has been seen in the previous films. The comics already deal with the plot I’ve got in mind. Batman should be the greatest investigator in the world and this aspect has not been dealt with before in the previous movies…”

The main characters in the movie will be Batman/Bruce Wayne (Robert Pattinson), Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Zoe Kravitz), The Riddler (Paul Dano), Commissioner Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) plus an Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin played by a completely unrecognisable – thanks to the magic of make-up – Colin Farrell. In the trailer we also here the voiceover of Andy Serkis as faithful butler Alfred.

Simultaneously (or a few weeks prior: there are conflicting rumours in this regard) to the release of The Batman, there will also be the launch of a TV series on the American channel HBO about the entire city of Gotham City. A sort of tantalising prequel to what we will see in the film which explores the corruption in the city while the first sightings occur of a mysterious masked vigilante….
