The 2021 Batman Trailer is pure darkness
…And it is not a good thing. We cant see anything. And the excitement is on an all time low. (SEE TRAILER BELOW)
The choice for Robert Pattinson for Batman feels wrong to begin with. Nothing wrong with him as an actor, but for Batman?
Just, nothing to get fired up for. And the style of this super dark screens feels super dated and very unimaginative today.
The comic based movies needs a revival, a new angle. They are kind of trying with Wonder Woman 1984 to find something lighter and brighter…let´s see how it works.
The Birds of prey also tried something more colorful to find it´s own identity, but did it work? Not really. Maybe the era of comic book movies ended with the Final of the defeat of Thanos. After that movie everything else has felt a bit stale and well, uninspired.
We might need a pause from these type of super power movies for a decade before we get a taste for them again?

The Batman is scheduled to be released on October 1, 2021.
A spin-off prequel television series is in development for HBO Max.
The Batman is an upcoming American superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name. Produced by DC Films and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, it is a reboot of the Batman film franchise. The film is directed by Matt Reeves, who wrote the screenplay with Peter Craig and Mattson Tomlin. It stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne / Batman, with Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Barry Keoghan, Jayme Lawson, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell rounding out the ensemble cast. The Batman is set during Batman’s second year of fighting crime and follows him as he explores Gotham City‘s corruption.
After he was cast as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Ben Affleck began developing a DC Extended Universe (DCEU) Batman film with Geoff Johns, and was attached to direct, write, produce, and star. In January 2017, Affleck stepped down from directing and writing after struggling with the story and so he could focus on playing Batman. Reeves took over directorial and scripting duties the following month and reworked the story to focus on a younger Batman, hoping to emphasize the detective aspect of the character to a greater extent than previous films. Affleck stepped down from all involvment in January 2019, and Pattinson was cast the following May. The film’s connections to the DCEU were subsequently eliminated. Principal photography began in London, England in January 2020 but was suspended in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Production is expected to resume in early September.
