Matt Reeves, who directed the critically acclaimed movies such as ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,’ ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ and ‘Let Me In’ revealed the first trailer of ‘The Batman’ on DC FanDome event, the other day.
During the event, alongside the trailer, the director told fans regarding the highly expected reboot of the Batman film franchise, ‘The Batman’ starring Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman with Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, and John Turturro:
“It’s about the early days of him being Batman and he’s very far from being perfect. One of the things that are interesting is learning how to be Batman. It’s a criminological experiment. He’s trying to figure out what he can do to change this place. He’s seeing he’s not having any of the effects he wants to have. That’s when the murders start to happen… And it opens up a whole new world of corruption. Without being an origin tale, it ends up touching on his origins.”
Reeves, who signed a multi-year overall deal with Warner Bros. Television a few weeks ago, described the movie as a “detective story” and continued by saying:
“It’s a detective story, a mystery, it’s got, of course, action, and it’s incredibly personal for him. He’s kind of a growing legend and is afraid of him. He’s not a symbol of hope yet. One of the things he has to deal with is how he’s perceived … What was exciting for me was not doing the origin [story] but to meet him in the middle and to see him make mistakes and grow and fail and be heroic in a way that felt very human and very flawed.”
Later, concerning the trailer, Reeves stated it was drawing from 25 percent of the footage.
The Batman has been scheduled to be released on October 1, 2021.
