New Footage Of Robert Pattinson's The Batman Described - Matt Reeves

CinemaCon dropped new footage from Robert Pattinson’s debut as Matt Reeves’ The Batman; it reflected the movie’s grounded tone.

It’s been almost a year now since the first DC FanDome event where we got our first teaser trailer.

However, since then we haven’t seen any more footage from the film.

This is most likely due to the many delays it’s suffered because of COVID-19.

Robert Pattinson himself unfortunately tested positive for during filming in Liverpool, England.

Moreover, that resulted in filming coming to a brief halt while he recovered.

With a second DC FanDome happening on October 16, it’s highly likely that will be when we’ll get our next look at the upcoming movie.

Those who were lucky enough to attend the Warner Bros. presentation at CinemaCon have already seen some brand new footage from The Batman.

Entertainment Weekly was at the screening of this new footage.

They went into detail on what was shown.

The report described:

In it, the film’s gloomy aesthetic is in full force as we see bits and pieces of a rainy Gotham thrown into chaos. Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne broods along the city streets. We get quick glimpses of Andy Serkis’ Alfred, Batman beating up foes, explosions, police officers, and more chaos.

In addition, there were statements from both Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson.

They revealed what the director and actor had to say regarding their take on The Batman.

What makes this version different from previous cinematic incarnations of the character?

Reeves explained:

I felt that we’ve seen lots of origin stories. It seems things go further and further into fantasy, and I thought, well, one place we haven’t been is grounding it in the way that [Frank Miller’s] Year One does, to come right in to a young Batman, not being an origin tale, but referring to his origins and shaking him to his core.

You can have it be very practical, but I also thought it could be the most emotional Batman movie ever made.

The comment about The Batman being emotional caused some certain with fans.

After all, the emo stigma of Twilight still haunts Robert Pattinson. To be fair, his recent acclaimed performances outshine his past.

Robert Pattinson feels that The Batman is a unique installment in his career.

Robert Pattinson said:

For some reason, Batman has always stood out as one of the major characters of the 20th century, and so many people connect with it on such a deep level for so many different reasons. From the first conversation I had with Matt about it, I just knew that there was something radically different [here].


The new footage that EW described is likely what we can expect to see in the next trailer once it is finally released online.

Furthermore, we can also expect to see more quotes from Reeves, Robert Pattinson, and other members of the cast and crew during DC FanDome’s The Batman panel in October.
