In just about a month Bat-Fans will be flying to the theaters by the cauldron in order to get our first look at Battinson as our newest caped crusader. In August 2021, we reported about a Twitter thread posted by “blurayangel” who claimed they knew someone who had attended an early screening and said “The Batman movie is a horror movie. Very graphic, very dark, very scary. Paul Dano is f**king crazy, so f**king scary I loved every second.”
They then went on to share more spoiler-free tidbits from the film, including news that the film sets itself up for a sequel. Battinson confirmed there are definitely more films intended when he shared his thoughts about the film, “When I saw it the first time, even from the first shot, it does feel incredibly different, tonally, to the other movies,” Robert Pattinson said in an interview with Total Film.
“And it’s so strange, and kind of… It’s sad, and quite touching. It’s a really, really unusual Batman story, and it almost seems harder for me to imagine it being a series afterwards. I mean, they always have that little bit at the end, that’s like: ‘…and coming up!’ But other than that, it feels strangely personal. I think people will be quite shocked at how different it is.”
On Tuesday, Awards Ace’s Erick Weber shared on Twitter that he too knew someone who viewed an early screening and they described The Batman as a “complex film,” comparing it to several movies such as Zodiac, Chinatown, The Silence of the Lambs, and The Usual Suspects.
Writer/Director Matt Reeves shared a sequence of new artwork for the film on Twitter, including one featuring Battinson:
Which caught the eye of Marvel’s Kingpin, Vincent D’Onofrio who retweeted the artwork and said, “I will see this”
Reeves shared several Tweets
