Even though the world is celebrating 2021's Batman Day, much of the hype is focused on 2022, which looks to be Batman's year.

In addition to Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck reprising their respective versions of Batman in The Flash, 2022 will also bring a whole new Batman to the screen.

Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as a younger Bruce Wayne early in his tenure as the Dark Knight alongside Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin

To celebrate Batman Day, Matt Reeves took to Twitter posting an image from the editing room of Pattinson's Caped Crusader firing his grapple gun; but apparently, that wasn't the only preview fans were granted. 

Michael Giacchino Previews The Batman's Epic Score

The Batman

To celebrate Batman Day, Michael Giacchino, the composer for Matt Reeves' The Batman, posted a preview of the film's score. 

The video shows the orchestra at one point in the score where the music swells through the heavy use of horns and brass before falling into a quiet rhythm. 

Now Giacchino is no stranger to major franchises, having worked on Rogue One, Up, and Jurassic World; and he's certainly no stranger to comic book movies due to his work on Marvel's Doctor Strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Spider-Man: Far From Home. He is currently working on Spider-Man: No Way Home set to release this December.

Giacchino captioned his video on Twitter which reads as follows:

"Happy #BatmanDay everyone!! We have been hard at work and can't wait to share what we've been up to!! @mattreevesLA #DCFanDome #TheBatman @TheBatman"

Batman Fans Stay Tuned For DC FanDome

Both Reeves and Giacchino's tweets for Batman Day contained a reference to 2021's DC FanDome - a virtual convention for fans highlighting upcoming DC-related content that's set to launch on October 16. 

The first-ever DC FanDome was held last year and was where the first trailer for The Batman was revealed; and according to 2021's DC FanDome press release, history will repeat itself with yet another exclusive trailer for Reeves' film ahead of its spring theatrical release.

Fans can also expect to hear more of Giacchino's score in the new trailer, and both see and hear how it sounds against a backdrop of action from Pattinson's Batman. 

The Batman is set to release on March 4, 2022.
