The test images that provide our first look at Robert Pattinson, dressed as the Gotham Bat, hit Vimeo, revealing the latest version of the watchman's iconic badge in a tactically functional suit that the world's best detective will apparently wear in his second year as the Caped Crusader.
The 55-second teaser also features the music of the self-styled "nerd composer" Michael Giacchino, who has previously collaborated with The batman director Matt Reeves on both The dawn of the planet of the apes Y War for the planet of the apes, in addition to producing scores for several Marvel Studios projects, including Strange doctor, Spider-Man: back homeY Spider-Man: away from home.

The promotion has sparked new excitement for the upcoming Dark Knight story that Reeves has described as "defining" and "very personal," and sources close to the project have indicated that the film will focus on Bruce Wayne's second year as Gotham's resident protector. City, unlike Frank Miller's story "Batman: Year One" that covered issues # 404-407 of the bat Man Comic book in the winter of 1987 or the 2005 opening chapter of the Christopher Nolan Dark Knight trilogy, The beginning of batman, which starred Christian Bale as the titular hero.
Pattison will be joined by Zoë Kravitz as Selina "Catwoman" Kyle, Paul Dano as Edward "The Riddler" Nashton, Colin Farrell as Oswald "The Penguin" Cobblepot, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth. The film will also present Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Jim Gordon, which also means that, as last year's Academy Award winner jester, will not take place in the DC Extended Universe, since Gordon was previously played in that franchise by J.K. Simmons in 2017 League of Justice.
Although no detail of the plot has yet been rumored, there is a substantial precedent in the print to extract. DC Comics published a story of "Batman: Year Two," written by Mike W. Barr and drawn by Alan Davis, which covered issues # 574-578 of Detective Comics in the spring of 1987 and involved Batman facing the cruel Reaper.
In that story, he ended up confronting the villain using the same gun that Joe Chill had used to kill Martha and Thomas Wayne, and some eagle-eyed spectators already theorized that the symbol on Pattinson's suit seems to be built from pieces of the hilt of a gun And more recently, the "War of Jokes and Riddles" by Tom King, which covers topics # 25-32 of bat Man In 2017, it included a city-wide battle between the Joker and the Riddler during Batman's second year.
Whatever form your story takes, we will finally get all the details when The batman It opens on June 25, 2021.
