The Batman

Over the weekend, DC FanDome unveiled the teaser trailer to Matt Reeves’ upcoming film, The Batman, featuring Zoe Kravitz (The Catwoman), Paul Dano (The Riddler), Jeffrey Wright (James Gordon), an unrecognizable Colin Farrell (The Penguin), and Robert Pattinson as The Batman.

Holy shit does this thing deliver.

Not long ago, fans were debating if the dude from Twilight could be menacing as The Dark Knight. Behind the brilliant direction of Reeves (who also directed the last two installments of the recent Planet of the Apes trilogy), Pattinson puts that idea in a coma.

Needless to say, this raises the bar and expectations for the film, but there is nothing to suggest they won’t deliver. Anyone who saw The Lighthouse, knows Pattinson is plenty capable of intensity. And Reeves has a track record of delivering spectacular, big-screen action. I think we’ll be talking about this one for a while.

Let me know what you think. Did it meet your expectations? Surpass them? Or leave you flat? I would like to hear your thoughts. Post a comment.

Now I’m going to watch that trailer again.
