The Batman | March 4, 2022 | Warner Bros.

Recommended Posts

The director who made the last planet of the apes a concentration camp movie was probably never going to make a light batman film. 

 

And that’s fine. It’s not like the MCU is ever going to do this tone so WB might as we’ll plant its flag in that corner of the market.

NGL, Elijah Wood would be a good choice to play Jervis Tetch in a sequel.

There's a different between being dark and being mean. And this Batman feels mean. Can't really put my finger on it, but based solely of what we've seen so far, something is not sitting well with me

A bit off topic but the new game looks amazing. The Arkham Knight is one of the best games I've ever played.

Tbh, that's what excites me. We saw, for all intents and purposes, a lunatic Batman in BvS, but this one looks like a movie that might just... Yiu know, actually ADDRESS that. Noir detective story, with the hero clearly on the edge - I trust Reeves can make it compelling and still make us root for him. 

 

Anyway, if nothing else, think it's fair to say Fandome was a success for WB. The one downside I can see is that The Batman kinda overshadowed everything, but that was inevitable as long as they were gonna show footage.

That's. The. Point.  Reeves here has explained in vague but clear-enough terms that he IS going to explore more of the idea of what would people really be thinking if this kind of guy showed up and started doing the things he did...  And you know, no one's perfect at their job when they start out...for some, it takes years of progression and finite development.  I hope that's what we're going to see more of here...an imperfect guy in the field, as well as in his head. 

 

Also a good idea to consider that maybe the film's perspective is not entirely from Batman or Alfred or even Gordon's POV.  Maybe some of the POV will be from people who are deservedly skeptical of this guy's motives...maybe even... Riddler?

i meant more for lead but yeah TDKR had a great supporting cast. Tom Hardy was kept hidden behind a mask the whole time tho :ph34r:

Christian Bale is a PMF if I ever saw one.

I'm sure that's the point, nobody does this on accident. I will surely see this in the theater, I'm just a bit skeptical at this point

Snyder’s batman was mean and it was indeed crap. Hopefully if this one is also mean it at least has some larger point to the meanness and it’s not just the projected nihilism of its director.

"You're part of this too"

"How am I a part of this?"

"You'll see."

 

It seems pretty clear that what you are describing is what the movie is about.

I enjoyed Arkham Knight save the way-too-obvious "twist" which fizzles out and the overuse of the Goddamn Batmobile. I do hope the bikes aren't too present here. 

 

Also, I'm all about single player. So I hope it's not over-reliant on co-op or whatever and it's a good single player story, with none of the micro-transaction shit and the option to play as all of the four characters as you go through the campaign. Otherwise, looks good.

It's actually the first time DC releases a trailer with over a year away of a movies release since Suicide Squad (first trailer on 07/2015). The plan was release this at CCXP in december but due to the pandemic situation it isn't possible.

 

Justice League also had first official footage on 07/2016.

BvS did address Batman’s brutality. You can say that it didn’t do a good job of addressing it, but it definitely tried to make a point about how much more brutal and nihilistic he’s become. Him trying to kill Superman is very much presented as a bad thing, and his ending monologue in the film is supposed to show how he’s started to lose his nihilism.

I think realistically you're not going to strike fear in hardened criminal without a gruesome display of brutal violence.

 

If criminals aren't afraid of Batman he's not going to last very long.

 

In that scene, he's clearly outnumbered so without any guns what's to prevent those thugs from jumping him?

 

Fear.

On youtube it has over 500k likes. It's great, but not comparable to other rivals' likes. Some had over 1M. But there's still time

It doesn't mean much. DC only has one movie with over 1 million likes on Youtube (Joker). The Batman will reach soon.

 

I think the MCU only reached this milestone with Infinity War and the following movies (FFH, CM, BW, and Endgame).
