Many would say that there’s not a lot of mileage left in screen adaptations of Batman, but Movies In Focus feels that there’s plenty of ways to keep reinventing The Dark Knight on the big screen (much like in the comics). It looks like Matt Reeves has managed to craft a new take on Bob Kane and Bill Finger’s creation for The Batman and I’m liking what I see in this well cut and atmospheric teaser (it has serious hints of David Fincher’s Seven).
It doesn’t give much away, but we certainly get a sense of tone for the film – even though only about 25% has been filmed. Production for Matt Reeves’ The Batman shut-down on 14 March due to the Coronavirus pandemic and filming will resume in September for a 1 October, 2021 release.
The Batman stars Robert Pattison, Colin Farrell, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Andy Serkis and Peter Sarsgaard,
