The Batman Movie, Warner Bros.’ next superhero drama, directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and starring some of Hollywood’s brightest actors, is a fresh take on the world’s greatest investigator. The Batman, which stars Robert Pattinson and is a solo film, is comparable to – but not linked to — this year’s Joker origin story arc.
The Batman Movie – Everything we know
A brief overview: new photographs from Warner Bros. have been released, including a closer look at Paul Dano’s Riddler and Colin Farrell’s Penguin, as well as some behind-the-scenes shots. Producer Dylan Clark has stated that they have explicitly informed Christopher Nolan that they are attempting to “beat” The Dark Knight trilogy with The Batman. According to Zoe Kravitz, she wants her Catwoman to feel like a “genuine person.” According to Colin Farrell, his time as the Penguin in the movie is relatively limited. Director Matt Reeves has stated that the feature would end shooting in mid-March 2021, a year before it is scheduled to be released.
The Batman Movie’s working title as it heads into production is now Vengeance, per a recent entry on the website Production Weekly. The Batman will be released in theaters in the United States on March 4, 2022. Due to difficulties relating to the coronavirus, the initial delivery date of 25 June 2021 had been pushed back, first to October 2021, and now to the date mentioned here.
Before becoming available on HBO Max, The Batman Movie will have a 45-day theatrical window. Their day-and-date release approach for 2021 came to an end with The Matrix Resurrections, which was likely harmed at the box office due to its availability on the streaming service. However, WarnerMedia believes the tactic paid off because HBO Max outperformed expectations in 2021, with 73.8 million subscribers. “It’s difficult to argue; we made the right decision,” Kilar remarked. We catered to the patrons, the enthusiasts. We collaborated with theaters, and we were the only ones to offer 18 theatrical films with complete marketing budgets and global theatrical distribution. And we worked closely with our [talent] participants to ensure their well-being.”
