A trailer for the new Batman movie starring Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne has been released and it looks more dark and depressing than previous Batman movies.
Batman has probably seen more different actors don the bat-suit than any other superhero in history. Adam West launched the franchise on television in the 60’s, from there the Dark Knight went to the big screen with Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale (arguably the best), Ben Affleck (arguably the worst) and now…that glitter vampire, Robert Pattinson.
A trailer for “The Batman” was released on Saturday and ya know what; we may have been wrong about Robert Pattinson.
Perhaps it was the fact that the trailer was set to Nirvana’s “Something In The Way” that gave it such a dark and depressing feeling. Either way, this new Batman movie looks legit bad-ass. Pattinson seems to be distancing himself from other portrayals of the character by offering nothing in the way of humor. Which we think is fine. The fight (or ass whoopin) scene at the end of the trailer is absolutely brutal. And in what seems to be a nod to the Michael Keaton batman, when asked who are you the new hero replies “I am vengeance”. Well done.
Add to all of that the fact that the new mode of transportation for the anti-hero is a souped up and heavily customized Barracuda! We may just risk getting infected with the pandemic if it means seeing this on the big screen on opening weekend.
