The movie The Batman, which will once again reboot the mythical DC Comics character, will explore the depths of Bruce Wayne's trauma.
One of the most anticipated movies of 2021 is The Batman, where Robert Pattinson will play Bruce wayne. But it will also be accompanied by a stellar cast headed by Jeffrey Wright like Commissioner Gordon, Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as Enigma, Colin farrell as El Pinguino and Andy Serkis like Alfred. For now, very little is known about the story. However, Matt Reeves' co-writer, Mattson tomlin, shares a narrative detail, giving fans an idea of what to expect from the film.
In a recent interview about his latest film, Netflix Project Power, inevitably the writer was also asked about The batman. Mattson Tomlin admits that it is difficult to talk about the high-profile project now, but he did confirm that the story will address the early days of Bruce Wayne operating as the Dark Knight of Gotham. Additionally, he revealed that the narrative will revolve around the character's trauma:
“I think Matt Reeves as a filmmaker, if you look at any of his work, whether it's Let Me In, Cloverfield or the Planet of the Apes movies, it always comes from a point of excitement, it's never great action. It is always, what is the soul of this character? I think really looking at Bruce Wayne as someone who has been through this trauma, and then all he's doing is a reaction to that, rather than shunning it, I think the movie The Batman leans towards that in very funny ways. and surprising. I think that's all I can say without being yelled at. "
It will be a very different version than Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck.
The original iteration of the DC Extended Universe took an older, hardened, and more mundane approach, and that's what made it unique from its predecessors. However, The Batman will bring fans back to the character's early days, as Tomlin puts it. For now we don't know if the film will once again review the murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne. However, considering that this is the most traumatic moment in Bruce's life, it is highly likely that the crime naturally affects the plot.
The Batman is scheduled to premiere on October 1, 2021. Hopefully the Coronavirus doesn't cause any further delays.
