Robert Pattinson’s The Batman film has gotten its first online reaction. Critics will see the movie in a few weeks. In the meantime, it’s a mystery.
Some are confident that director Matt Reeves will nail it; others are a bit skeptical.
So far, audiences are thrilled about Robert Pattinson’s brutal presence.
When his casting was announced, there was social media angst because of his Twilight films.
A number of fans couldn’t take it seriously.
Although Robert Pattinson appeared in acclaimed movies since Twilight‘s end, the masses didn’t see them.
Instead, he became a critics’ darling.
The trailers calmed the storm.
It’s quite obvious that Robert Pattinson captured The Batman‘s grit and darkness.
But what about The Batman movie?
Certainly, the footage is reminiscent of Christopher Nolan’s streetwise approach.

In other words, it strives for realism.
While Zack Snyder had Batman fight Superman, Reeves has him fighting the Riddler in a trash-bag costume.
The media blitz draws comparisons to horror movies like Seven.
Furthermore, they draw parallels to gangster classics such as The Godfather.
Awards Daily‘s Erick Weber Tweeted a text from a friend who’s seen The Batman.
It corroborates those previous claims.
However, some of the response is troubling,
Well, it’s open to interpretation.
Your mileage may vary.
Weber’s source described The Batman as “complex.”
Artistically, that can be seen as positive.
But to some people that can be viewed as pretentious.
For example, a number of folks felt Eternals was complex.
In fact, many reviewers didn’t get it at all.
What’s truly concerning, though, is that The Batman is “controversial.”
That generally means the film makes unpopular decisions.
There are likely twists or changes in The Batman that will irk fans.
Finally, people will discuss it “endlessly.”
Yes, that can be taken as the movie is polarizing.
So far, it doesn’t sound like The Batman is a smooth ride.
For example, nobody would’ve described The Dark Knight as controversial.
Audiences can decide for themselves in March.
Will a Batman movie compared to Silence of the Lambs and Chinatown click with the public?
Will Robert Pattinson hit a grand slam?
Warner Bros. is hoping for a billion on this one.
