The Batman will hit theatres on March 4th, 2022. The film is set to be a completely different take on Batman than shown in previous franchises. Robert Pattinson has hinted that his character isn’t a clear hero.

Warner Bros. are introducing a brand new version of the iconic DC hero in Matt Reeves’ upcoming film. Pattinson will be joined by Zoë Kravitz’s Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Penguin, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, and Andy Serkis as Alfred. Paul Dano’s The Riddler’s outfit recently caused a lot of stir on the internet.

The trailer of the movie received amazing feedback. However, plot specifics are still scant at the moment. Marketing for the blockbuster is already ramping up with a string of teasers and tie-in The Batman merchandise.

In a recent interview with The Daily Record, Robert Pattinson discussed his preparation for tackling one of the most famous superheroes of all time. He also teased what his interpretation will look like. People tend to see the Caped Crusader as being a “straight-up” hero, Robert said that his version will be a little more complicated.

I needed to know about as much of the history of the character as possible to see what hadn’t really been done … People see Batman as this straight-up heroic character but in our story it really questions what the nature of a hero is and it gives a lot of different angles to it.

The Batman could also see Bruce learning that his family has ties with the rampant corruption in Gotham City, resulting in the metropolis’ run-down state hinted at in previous trailers. Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne has only been the Bat of Gotham for two years. It will be interesting to see how the character will develop in the timeline.
