Director Matt Reeves debuted a teaser trailer for “The Batman” on Saturday at Warner Bros.’ DC FanDome virtual event.
It’s not an origin tale. Instead, Reeves said this iteration of the Dark Knight will follow Bruce Wayne during his second year in the role as the Caped Crusader.
Reeves described the film as a detective story about corruption in Gotham. Because the film takes place early in Wayne’s career as Batman, Reeves said fans shouldn’t expect to see fully formed heroes and villains as they’re used to seeing them. They’re iterations of the characters we know and love during their early days.
This Batman won’t be adored by Gotham citizens. Reeves said they will fear him.
Zoe Kravitz will play a younger Catwoman/Selina Kyle and Jeffrey Wright will play Commissioner James Gordon. Reeves teased that Paul Dano plays a version of The Riddler we’ve never seen before. Colin Farrell’s Oswald Cobblepot is so early in his career as the Penguin that he doesn’t even like the nickname yet in this film.
“The Batman” will continue filming in September and is set for an October 1, 2021, release date.
