DC FanDome kicks off this weekend with part one of their two-part convention adjacent event, “Hall of Heroes.” One of the main offerings we’re all waiting for is the first officially released footage of Matt Reeves‘ upcoming film, “The Batman.”
Just this morning, Reeves shared the first look at the official Bat-logo for the film, as well as a new poster by comics great Jim Lee.
Starring Robert Pattinson in the title role, it’ll be a very different Dark Knight than we’ve seen previously. This’ll be more of a true dark noir story, theoretically diving deep into the detective side of the character. We’ll be getting some notable figures from throughout Batman’s rogues gallery, including Collin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, and John Turturro as crime boss Carmine Falcone.
Jeffrey Wright will be taking on the role of Gotham City Police Commissioner Jim Gordon, and Andy Serkis will be the Wayne family butler, Alfred Pennyworth.
“The Batman” is currently set to swoop into theaters on October 1st, 2021. And, make sure you tune into DC FanDome on Saturday, August 22nd.
