In the dark and gloomy streets of Gotham City, The Batman lurks in the shadows, waiting to strike fear into the hearts of criminals. He is a vigilante who has sworn to protect the people of Gotham from all forms of evil. In the new instalment, we see Batman battling against all sorts of criminals, including The Joker and Two-Face. If you’re a fan of The Dark Knight movies or just superhero comics in general, then you need to read The Dark Knight Returns!
Robert Pattinson’s version of Batman is the highly anticipated movie of the year. The movie is coming to the theaters on 4 March 2022.
Recently Collider participated in the press conference with Reeves and Robert Pattinson and got the opportunity to ask many questions from the duo.
What was in the press conference?
One of the things Reeves has said multiple times is that he wanted to make a Batman movie that kept everything as grounded and realistic as possible and extended a take on the character fans haven’t seen earlier. When you see the movie next week, you’ll see he fulfilled his thing, and fans will get a film, unlike any former Batman movie.
Will this Batman movie have Superman in it?
Talking about whether this Batman movie has Superman in it Reeves responded,
But to be truthful with you, that isn’t the ambition at this point, to figure out how to make that come. Look, we should be so lucky that this is a world that people embrace and that they say, oh my God, we want to see what would happen when those things clash. I suppose if that challenge ever presents itself, it would be a stimulating one to explore, but I’d have to try and do it through this lens. Do you know what I mean? And that’s absolutely right, that at the moment, to me, this world is the place that I want to concentrate.”
Why is Batman so popular?
The answer is simple: because he’s human. He has no superpowers; he relies on his intellect, his fighting skills, and his equipment to take down criminals. The Dark Knight Returns showcases all of these qualities in an action-packed story that is sure to please fans of the character. The Dark Knight Returns is one of my favourite Batman stories, and I’m excited to see how Reeves adapts it for the big screen.
What can we expect from the upcoming movie of Batman?
The Dark Knight Returns? The answer is, we expect the movie to be darker than any other Batman movies that have been made before. The reason being is because, in The Dark Knight Returns, Batman is an old man. An old man who has seen better days and has even retired from being Batman. So when he returns to Gotham City, he comes back as a darker, more brooding figure. The other thing that makes The Dark Knight Returns different from other Batman movies is that it will feature Superman. This is something that has been speculated about for quite some time, but Reeves has finally confirmed that Superman will indeed be in the movie. Whether or not he will be a friend or foe to Batman remains to be seen, but it should be interesting to see how the two characters interact with each other on the big screen.
What is the storyline of Batman – The Dark Knight Returns?
The movie will be set years after Batman has disappeared from Gotham City, Reeves said. The Caped Crusader returns to his hometown when he is needed once again to take on crime. The film will focus on an aged Bruce Wayne (played by Ben Affleck) who comes out of retirement to don the cape and cowl one last time. “He’s not in a great place,” Reeves said of Wayne in the movie. “His physical condition is not what it used to be, and we see that he’s struggling with his demons.” The director also promised that The Dark Knight Returns will be a “very grounded” and “gritty” take on the character.
