The Batman Trailer Is Here

This is me firmly planting my foot in my mouth for all the shit I leveled at Robert Pattinson for being cast as Batman. You would think that Bat-fans would learn by now to just trust the casting of the titular hero for the most part. We raged against Keaton, we raged against Bale and we raged against Affleck… and those 3 are arguably the best interpretations of the character across all mediums. Well today we can rage no more against Pattinson because the ongoing online DC FanDome has been a veritable bukkake fest in terms of reveals and trailers and sneak peaks. The latest is arguably the biggest one of the bunch as we FINALLY got to see the debut trailer of Matt Reeves’ THE BATMAN starring Robert Pattinson. It’s a short one barely clocking in at a minute and a half…. But what we get is a Batflick that is ABSOLUTELY unlike any we have seen before. This looks like a thrilling detective story that borderlines as an almost kind of horror flick. The trailer exudes dread and darkness but not in an exploitive way.

My favorite Batman stories are The Long Halloween, Hush and The Dark Knight Returns and this flick looks like it takes those and meshes it with the infamous Batman: Year One story as well. We get looks at Pattinson in and out of the Cape and Cowl and I’m not gonna lie… he looks really fucking good in the part. Will this be a barn burner at the box office and destroy all the records? No, but it doesn’t look like it’s trying to be that kind of film. We’ve gotten every kind of Batman movie on screen, from the comical 60’s take to the grim and gritty Batfleck films… but this looks unique in that it focuses on Bats being known as the world’s greatest detective just as much as he is one of the most prized fighters in all of comics. We also get glimpses of Jeffery Wright as Commissioner Gordon, someone who I can only assume is The Penguin… it also feels like The Riddler is lurking somewhere in the background and we also get a quick fight between Batman and Selina Kyle aka Catwoman.

This movie looks like it’s going to shake up the whole Bat universe in a big bad way and this trailer just made the film rocket all the way up to my #1 anticipated film of the next few years.

I suppose my story begins(as most do) on the day of my birth. I mean, i’d like to sit here and tell you about the ticker tape parade that was thrown in my honor, or that my being vaginally farted into the world signaled a time of unbridled peace and love throughout the galaxy, but i will do my best to try and be humble about my epic origins. Truth is my real origin is as ordinary as apple pie. I was hobbled together from various body parts of criminals on death row who opted to be organ donors. I suppose you could say I’m the Bizarro six million dollar man (but judging by my appearance you couldn’t tell they spent more than a few shillings on me). In between being chased by townsfolk with pitchforks and torches opposed to the “abomination” of my existence i have developed a passion for writing. The only thing that can match such lofty desires would be a lifelong passion for film. I mean I’m quite nerdy about lots of things (video games, comic books, music, etc…) but cinema in all its shiny golden splendor has captured my attention more than anything else. It’s something I try to share with the world at large, as much as possible. I figure if i can find the magic in such things, maybe i can help others do so as well. I’ve written quite a few poems(mostly about my first few years as a dime store knockoff Mary Shelly creation) but have stuck to mostly movie reviews. I am quite elated to be able to relate my thoughts and opinions on all things film with those who take the time to read them. I hope to have a positive impact here on the site and am looking forward to not only working with the staff currently in place but being able to reach a wider audience as well. P.S. If some of my work comes off a bit sloppy and meandering, its just because the doctor responsible for the stitch job on my cranial cavity didn’t do that great job and my brain has fallen out of the hole in my head they used to pump blood into. Cheers Mates!!
