The long-awaited trailer for Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’ has finally arrived.
It premiered during a DC Fandome panel Saturday, just hours after the preview prematurely surfaced online.
During the panel, Director Reeves revealed The Batman will be a gritty detective story that takes cues from classic films like Chinatown and Taxi Driver.
“As we said, it’s not an origin tale and you’re meeting him in the early days … a lot of the other stories are very much about how he had to master his fear and master himself,” Reeves said. “I think for me, what was exciting, is not doing that, not doing the origin, but instead, to meet him in the middle of this criminological experiment, to see him fail and grow and be heroic but in a way that felt very human, very flawed … the audience of putting the audience in the shoes.”
After sharing the first trailer, Matt made clear that it’s a small preview as the film is only about 25% finished.
‘The Batman’ will also star Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/the Riddler, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/the Penguin, and John Turturro as Carmine “The Roman” Falcone.
