With each new iteration of Batman, we are assured of a number of things; a new batsuit, new batmobile, new take on some classic villains and of course an all-new Gotham City. Jeffrey Wright shared a little bit of detail on what to expect from the Dark Knight’s playground in the coming the batter and how it will be like never before. Of course, Matt Reeves is also an executive producer on the HBO Max series Gotham PD so we’re sure to see a lot of the crime-filled streets in the years to come.
We’ve seen countless versions of Gotham on the big screen, from the dark and brooding neo-noir style of the Tim Burton era to the bright skyscrapers of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, so you have to wonder where else it could go to make it different. We’ve seen some shots of the city in the trailer footage and photos, but what about the feel of the city, what about its character? We will, Jeffrey Wright had something to say about that when he spoke to IndieWire.
“It’s different from Gothams we’d seen before. It was a Gotham we could touch. As the Batmobile was described, I understood that the aesthetic we were going for was something very tangible. When you squint your eyes in a back street of New York, you could see it appear,” Wright said in his description.
the batter recently received rave reviews from some of the social media users who were part of the group to preview the film at CinemaCon last month, who described them as one of the best Batman movies on screen, with a raw brutality and some breathtaking moments, as well as the clear path leading to the next movie, which will be inevitable. A new trailer is expected to be released at FanDome 2021 in October when DC will showcase many of their upcoming wares such as peacekeeper, Batman: Caped Crusader and Naomi, but the batter is by far the largest to come out of DC in the next six months.
Robert Pattinson will make his Batman debut in the film, which is said to be inspired by the… Batman: Year 1 comic book series and sees the movie version of Batman entering his second year as a crime fighter in Gotham. The film will inherit some of the original dark noir detective stories that were at the heart of the original Batman comics, meaning it will be a world away from the bright and flashy superhero world he’s been a part of ever since.
As well as Pattinson’s Batman, we’ll also see the ensemble cast of Andy Serkis, Zoe Kravitz, Colin Farrell, Paul Dano and John Tuturro, as well as Jeffrey Wright taking over from Commissioner Gordon. the batter is currently slated to hit theaters on March 4, 2022.
