The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson, will be the actor’s first venture as the Caped Crusader. The film is set to be a completely different take on Batman than shown in previous franchises. It seems Pattinson gave more details regarding the nature of the film’s story as well recently.
Pattinson’s reveal was met with a lot of mixed reactions from fans, as many doubted Pattinson could do the Caped Crusader justice. Pattinson also made it clear he was afraid of offending Batman fans.
The film will feature one of Batman’s most iconic characters as Catwoman will be present. Zoe Kravitz will portray the role of Catwoman. Fans got to see her in action previously as well.
While speaking with MovieMaker Magazine, Robert Pattinson discussed the importance of the detective element of the Batman character in the film. Pattinson stated that the film will be fundamentally a detective story.
“In the first meeting, he was saying, we want to lean into the ‘world’s greatest detective aspect,’ and be a detective noir movie and, you know, normally when directors say that, they just do like a mood board, and it’s just about the imagery. But I read the script, and it is! It’s a detective movie. It happens all the time in the graphic novels, but it’s always kind of on the backburner in the movies.”
The film will also be the longest-ever Batman movie to date. The film is set to release on March 4, 2022. We will have to see how the film turns out to be and if it will be able to live up to fan expectations, especially when it comes to Batman and Catwoman’s portrayals.
