The Batman is one of the most interesting films on the agenda of DC. Moving totally away from the Snyderverse, this new version, with Robert Pattinson as the protagonist, will seek to get closer to the darker origins of the hooded man, where he served more as a detective and vigilante than as a classic hero. As with Christian Bale and Ben Affleck, the decision to cast the El Faro actor – 96% leading this project was not well received; However, the first advance surprised everyone, because it seems that we will genuinely see something totally new and much more mature and violent.

With high expectations and many doubts, The batman it will have to convince a very demanding public, and part of the problem is the delay it suffered from the global pandemic. The film was due to be released on October 1, 2021, but filming did not finish on the set dates because all productions had to close during the quarantine, and then because Pattinson tested positive for COVID. This only made fans more alert with any little details that were revealed, and since then certain aspects of the film are already dividing opinions.
Beyond the actor, Zoë Kravitz is another of the points that they complain about the most, since many do not see her as Catwoman, especially one that will totally move away from the sexual figure that has been presented on previous occasions. Of course, it is also not forgotten that this project was originally an idea of Ben affleck, who wrote the first draft and was even determined to direct. Finally, the actor ended up leaving the character behind and many do not forgive that he was not given a new opportunity to demonstrate his capabilities as Batman.
At some point in 2022 it will come The batman to cinemas around the world. The premiere date could still change, but the most recent results at the box office show that the public is already willing to leave home to enjoy the experience in theaters. While expectations and new fears continue to be generated about the film, fans took advantage of the date to remember that today should be the premiere.

While others spoke about their impressions after “seeing” her in theaters, even poking fun at the recent controversy about Batman giving Catwoman oral sex.
I just watched The Batman! It’s pretty good, definitely better than I expected. However, the hour-long sex scene between Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz on top of the Batmobile exceeded its welcome a bit. 8/10 Batman does do that.

The hour long sex scene between Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz on top of the batmobile overstayed it’s welcome a bit, though.

I just watched The Batman and it’s everything I hoped it would be! Pattinson truly embodies Batman, and more importantly, he delivers a compelling Bruce Wayne. Zoë Kravitz IS Catwoman and the rest of the cast were nothing short of phenomenal. The Mad Hatter reference at the end was WOW! 10/10

The production has done a great job of keeping the information of The batman in secret. Unlike other superhero films, not many leaks or theories have been made about the film, in large part because audiences genuinely don’t know what to expect. The first trailer seems to offer us a story closer to noir and serial killer stories in general, and true experts recognize the possibilities of the villain Riddler, here played by Paul Dano, thanks to the comics. But it is clear that the vision of the protagonists will be one that is far removed from the cinematographic tradition, and we have more to wait to see the result.
