Everything We Know So Far About The Much-Awaited Batman Reboot

The Dark Knight is all set to make a comeback. However, it will be in a new incarnation in 2021, before his familiar return in 2022. Robert Pattinson will reprise the role of the caped crusader this time. And the movie will be a complete revamp of the current version. Fans have been missing some action from their favorite superhero for quite a while now, and this comes as a breath of fresh air.

We can say that the announcement of Batman’s arrival has shot the temperature by a few degrees. The first look is already out, and people are dying to catch a glimpse of it. Below, you will get to know everything you needed about The Batman, and the data includes the cast, images, and the release date. Are you ready? Then, read on.

The Release Date

As per the announcement, The Batman is gearing up for a release on 1st October 2021. Initially, the producers thought of opting for a summer release. But, some unavoidable circumstances, coupled with the shutdown of production owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, led the makers to push its release date from 25th June to 1st October. Though there is no such guarantee that the scheduled release date won’t experience a further delay, the hope is that Matt Reeves, the director, wouldn’t disappoint the countless fans.

The Title

This reboot has experienced several changes so far. This includes a change of director, writers, lead actors, and the production dates too over the last two years! However, the only thing which has stayed unchanged is the title. The new venture is all set to hit the theaters with the title, The Batman, and that, in all probability, seems to be the final decision.

After all, that’s the name the people of Gotham City love to call their savior, mostly when he was an unfamiliar character to them. The movies are sharing the same title with the animated series that came out back in 2004. And we can assure you that it’s no coincidence!

Both of them highlight Bruce Wayne from his younger days when he started his fight against crime. It’s all about that period when Gotham residents aren’t quite sure of whether Batman is the symbol of their hope during trying times.

The Trailer

Just after the production kicked off, the fans were completely elated to catch the first glimpse of their favorite superhero. Matt Reeves shared a short costume test clip that featured Robert Pattinson in a spectacular redesigned Batsuit.

The costume draws inspiration from the comic strips and the Arkham video games. It was in August 2020 that the fans got the first glimpse of the full-length trailer of the film. This was during the DC FanDome event.

The Crew

While Ben Affleck was to handle the project initially, things went through a change in the coming days. Affleck dropped out, and there were changes to the screenplay as well. Though many might think that Affleck is over his tenure as Bruce Wayne, sources suggest that he will make appearances in The Flash and Justice League: The Snyder Cut. Reeves, of War of the Planet of the Apes fame, came on board to direct the venture.

Aside from penning down the script, he has also been working as the producer along with Dylan Clark. Michael Giacchino, who found fame with Lost and Rogue One, is scoring the film’s music and got a free hand to showcase his skills.

The Cast

Coming to the star cast, Robert Pattinson, who stole millions of hearts with the iconic Twilight franchise will essay the role of Bruce Wayne. This choice has been quite spontaneous, and people are in love with his look in the flick. It’s another fact altogether that the production was on halt with Pattinson testing positive for COVID-19. However, looks like things are back in shape now.

Coming to the other stars in the film, the movie will also feature Zoe Kravitz in the role of Selina Kyle, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon. Besides that, it also has Paul Dano as Edward Nashton aka The Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin. You might also see Jayme Lawson and Peter Sarsgaard playing Bella Real and Gil Colson, respectively.

So, after all the developments and some changes here and there, The Batman is ready to enthrall you. Block your dates because you surely wouldn’t want to miss it for the world. The Dark Knight is coming back!
