The Batman Features Showcasing Heroes, Villains, & Action
With The Batman being nearly three hours long, there are sure to be numerous behind-the-scenes stories highlighting how such a massive story came to the big screen. It appears that Warner Bros. is making sure that many of these stories make their way to the public, giving fans a look into how the studio developed the characters, action, and visuals that brought the film together.
Although many of the videos are rightfully focused on Pattinson's leading hero, the Blu-ray will explore how Zoe Kravitz and Colin Farrell developed their roles as the ambiguous Catwoman and the villainous mobster Penguin. There is also likely to be more material on Paul Dano's Riddler and Barry Keoghan's Joker, both of whom are set to play major roles in future stories.
