It is Official! Warner Bros.’s new iteration of the Dark Knight, played by Robert Pattinson has won over fans with The Batman teaser trailer. Moreover, it’s not just the gritty look or the costume that fans seem to be in love with but even the caped crusaders’ violent approach in dealing with low life criminals.
Earlier this weekend during DCFanDome: Hall of Heroes, director Matt Reeves was part of The Batman panel to discuss the ongoing DC project. But as promised, the director released a new teaser trailer for The Batman, introducing some of the key characters & elements, without spoiling the main essence of the plot. But the main highlight comes at the end of the trailer and it’s gotten Bat-fans excited for what’s in store.
Zack Snyder gives his thumb of approval for Matt Reeves’ The Batman teaser trailer
Batman’s method of dealing with low-life thugs has always been violent but perhaps dangerously graphic in some instances. The new trailer confirms that this version of the Dark Knight does not go up against his opponents lightly.
The scene that’s making the round on the internet shows a group of thugs confronting Batman and it’s clear that his presence is still in the dark even among criminals. One of them is quick to approach him aggressively, “The hell are you supposed to be” and gets the beatdown of his life with a reply from Batman, “I’m Vengeance”. You can check it out in the trailer below.
The Batman hits the thug 13 times during beatdown, a fan notes in his tweet
The thug beatdown scene has many wondering if the DC film would also be looking at an R-rated setting similar to The recent Joker movie. In a recent interview, even director Zack Snyder was asked about the thug beatdown scene and his reaction to the new Batman. “I don’t know yet what the rating is going to be, but I felt the same way,” said Zack Snyder speaking to Reel in Motion. “I actually just texted Matt [Reeves] after and I was like, ‘What the f—! This is cool!”
One fan has already made a LEGO version of the thug beatdown scene dubbed ‘VENGEANCE’. Some have shared their disappointment over the Batman being so brutal. But others have jumped in to argue that the superhero is in Year 2 of his time as the Batman and that may be the answer towards his aggressive approach. Nonetheless, its certainly got the reaction Warner Bros. was looking for. You can check out all the reactions below.
A lot of details regarding the DC film are out in the open such as this version of The Batman not being a part of the DCEU nor in the Joker movie parallel universe. Perhaps, Reeves’ may establish his very own Bat franchise thanks to DC embracing the unified multiverse. The Batman hits theaters on October 1, 2021.
