Robert Pattinson is one of the most popular and talented English actors of our time. He started his acting career portraying a young Bruce Wayne in the 2013 film, The Batman. That same year he was also featured in the highly anticipated film, X-Men: Days of Future Past as the adult actor, Scott Summers/X-Men. With so many memorable performances under his belt, it is safe to say that everyone is aware of who he is and what he can do. Now, it’s time for him to show the world a different side of himself. On February 4, 2019, it was announced that he will be portraying the iconic superhero, The Batman in an upcoming movie trilogy. This will be a completely different take on the Dark Knight as we’ve never seen him before. In addition to this, it was also revealed that the first of these films will be titled, The Batman and released in July 2021.

A Whole New Dimension

With The Batman being a critical and commercial success, it’s safe to assume that the producers of this movie series have something special in mind. When you add in the fact that the filmmakers behind this project are the masters of providing new and interesting takes on established characters and worlds, you begin to see why everyone is so hyped for this movie.

The news director of an online publication put it best when she said, “This is the type of movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat, wanting more. It feels like a breath of fresh air coming from Hollywood.” One of the most interesting things about this new take on The Batman is that it will bring with it a whole new dimension. As we’ve already established, the previous installments in this ongoing franchise focused on the early life of Bruce Wayne and his eventual transformation into the Dark Knight. Here, we will be getting a glimpse into the life of The Batman as an older individual. This upcoming phase will be unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.

New York City

While speaking with the press, director Matt Reeves stated that he wanted to put a “new spin on the Batman mythology.” He went on to say, “I’ve always loved the idea of the Dark Knight as an urban legend, someone who lives and breathes in Gotham City.” Reeves stressed that the production values of this movie would be of a high quality and that fans of the original The Batman would not be disappointed. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the most interesting tidbits about this upcoming film.

Digital Makeover

This movie will feature a healthy dose of digital manipulation, something that has always been a hallmark of the Batman films. For example, the suit that Batman wears in this installment will be fully computer generated. The creators of Batman noticed that when the actor, Robert Pattinson, put on the suit, it did not look as good as it did in the computer-generated image. In addition to this, the gloves and boots that he wears will also be fully digital. No blurry pixels here! This is definitely going to be the most realistic look at Batman yet.

Modern Appeal

Another interesting aspect of this incarnation of The Batman is that it will draw more heavily from recent headlines and pop culture. For example, the Dark Knight will reportedly be equipped with the Taser and other modern gadgets. The filmmakers behind this project want to make sure that it appeals to a modern audience and that they can continue to surprise us with innovative takes on superhero stories.

The Man Behind The Mask

The director of the upcoming film series, Matt Reeves, spoke about the unique perspective that he brings to the table: “I feel like there’s something special about being able to look through the lenses of a character you helped create. I’ve always found it fascinating to see the world through someone else’s eyes, and that’s what this opportunity provides – the chance to investigate how people behave in situations that you couldn’t normally find yourself in. It’s going to be exciting.” It appears as if Reeves has had a profound impact on the course of this franchise. Not only does he get to direct the first film in the upcoming trilogy, but he also gets to explore new dimensions of one of the greatest comic book characters ever created. This is quite an interesting development.

The creators of Batman wanted to provide a new take on the Dark Knight, someone who is a little more contemporary in his approach. They also wanted to give fans of the original film a chance to see how their character evolved over the years. This is the kind of support that frequently leads to major motion pictures and television shows getting made, especially when combined with a large following on social media. If you’ve been watching the news closely then you know that the world is a lot more dangerous now than it was in the early 1970s when Batman first arrived on our screens.

It is safe to assume that fans of the original The Batman will not be disappointed. Director Matt Reeves has put together a stellar cast of supporting actors that will be making appearances throughout the trilogy. This should make for some really interesting stories and give us a whole different perspective on the Dark Knight. Bring your mom, bring your dad, and bring your friends, especially your nerdiest friends. This could be one of the most interesting superhero films yet!
