The Batman Movie Trailer Released
The trailer for the latest Batman film is now in the wild, and it can be seen below.
The Batman (2021) star Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/the Batman in this latest iteration of the Dark Knight’s mythos. Pattinson succeeds Ben Affleck, who, oddly enough, is still also Batman, but as a guest star in the upcoming Flash movie.
Is The Batman part of the DCEU?
It appears at this point that the Pattinson Batman movie is NOT part of the DC Extended Universe, which makes sense since Affleck is still appearing as the Caped Crusader in the upcoming Flash film.
This stand-alone (?) Batman movie will feature well known villains, such as the Catwoman (Zoe Kravitz), Riddler (Paul Dano), and the Penguin (Collin Farrell), and John Turturrow as crime lord Carmine Falcone. Indications are that Riddler is the primary antagonist.
The trailer looks interesting, and has a rather spooky-sounding (given the Bat-vibe), Nirvana song, ‘Something In The Way’ forms the musical soundtrack for the Batman trailer.
Given what we see in this trailer, Pattinson’s Batman promises to be a grittier version of our famed hero.
