The year is 2021 and it’s been a while since we last saw Robert Pattinson in a cinematic adaptation of a Batman story. Well, it seems he has quite a bit on his to-do-list, as today Warner Bros. Pictures releases The Batman Robert Pattinson 4K. This new installment in the series centers around the fictional character created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in 1939. The film is directed by Matt Reeves with a script by John Wick editor Roger Avary and is loosely based on the 1966 TV series “Batman.” We rated it #3 on our list of Top 10 films to look out for in the coming months.

New Additions To The Ranks Of The Caped Crusader

Although the most recent Batman installment was released in 2013, this new Warner Bros. Pictures film includes some very important updates to the legendary character’s history. As the story begins, Batman is faced with the task of hunting a criminal mastermind known as the Joker (Jared Leto). The caped crusader teams up with detective Jack Napier (played by Val Kilmer) to bring down the notorious Mr. J before the year is out.

The film also marks a reunion for Jack Napier and Alfred (Richard Gladstein), who worked together in the first three Batman appearances. Additionally, this is the first time in nearly 70 years that we have seen Blake (Ben Affleck), the caped crusader’s famous sidekick, don’t appear in the comics at all. The inclusion of these new characters and their various stories provide a nice touch of variety to the long-running Batman franchise. Unfortunately, many of the supporting cast members are more than a little underused in the script. Aside from Leto’s Joker, the best villain of the year is Dennis (Walter Gilliam), a low-rent Alfred (Gladstein) stand-in whose scowl makes him look like he belongs in a prison cell rather than a large prison library.

Movie Review: An Important Update To An Important Character

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen an update of this magnitude to one of the most important and influential superheroes of all time. Since the 1930s, the adventures of Batman have entertained readers with stories of good vs. evil, tragedy, and sometimes even humor. Thanks to the development of television and the Internet, millions of people around the world know and love Batman and his incredible rogues’ gallery of villains. The character has been regularly featured on film and television, with the most recent installment, Batman vs. Joker (which was incidentally directed by one of this article’s authors, Jared Leto), being released in 2013.

However, it seems that the Caped Crusader is due for a redesign. Gone are the dark shadows and bright lights of the traditional Batman look. Matt Reeves’ update to the character focuses more on realistic settings and designs, as well as emphasizing his Western influences. The director of Cloverfield, Leto, brings a contemporary spin to the character with his unique take on the Joker, and his designs give the iconic villain a much more modern twist. While the scenery and costumes may appear fictional, Leto’s Joker looks surprisingly similar to the real thing, giving the movie a terrifyingly realistic feel.

Reeves’ Vision For A More Contemporary Batman

The cinematography in The Batman Robert Pattinson 4K is stunning. Much like his debut in 2015’s Man of Steel, Matt Reeves’ visual style employs extreme close-ups, sweeping pans, and smooth dollyspaces to create a unique atmosphere that is at once gritty and stylish. In the same vein as the film industry’s biggest hitters, Reeves models his shots after classic Hollywood era scenes rather than following modern conventions. While this may seem like a simple concept, his attention to detail is unparalleled, ensuring that every frame looks impeccable. The result is an outstanding feature-length tribute to one of the most important and influential superheroes of all time.

The Dark Knight Returns To Gotham City

The Batman Robert Pattinson 4K is the first in a trilogy with Reeves again at the helm. The second film, The Batman, hits theaters June 12, 2021, and the third and final installment, The Batman & Joker, hits theaters September 25, 2021. In these final two movies, Jack Napier and Alfred, along with many familiar faces from the first film, return to Gotham City. As expected, this is where the story goes down in flames. Fans of the original 1960s TV series will enjoy this homage to the classic Batman show, and newcomers will have the opportunity to join in on the action. The films’ spectacular fight scenes, some of which were shot live in front of a studio audience, will have you on the edge of your seat. It’s safe to say that Matt Reeves has truly delivered an important update to one of the most important and influential superheroes of all time.
