For DC Comics fans, Peacemaker is currently the trending topic. But John Cena’s solo outing as the titular vigilante won't be keeping the spotlight for long. In just over a month, Matt Reeves' The Batman will be here. Starring Robert Pattinson as the titular Dark Knight and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, the film looks to be a worthwhile addition to DC's film roster.
This will be the first time since Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises that Batman will star in his own solo film. While the character got a new interpretation with Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman, it technically wasn’t his film, having to share the spotlight with Superman, Wonder Woman, and more.
Now fans are finally getting what they want: a new adventure truly focused on the Caped Crusader. This time around, the hero will be going up against both Paul Dano’s Riddler and Colin Farrell’s Penguin.
The wait has been a long one, but the time is almost here. With just a few weeks until its release, two new posters for the project have been revealed to help ease the anticipation.
The Batman Gets New Posters
Brand-new posters were unveiled for the upcoming DC Comics film The Batman thanks to Twitter Movies.
The first shows a close-up of Robert Pattinson's Caped Crusader in his cowl looking ahead, and The Riddler's classic green question mark in his eye.
The second gives the spotlight to both The Dark Knight and Catwoman, whose dynamic seems to be integral to the movie.
The Bat And The Cat
If there’s anything The Batman’s marketing wants audiences to know, it’s that the hero’s relationship with Catwoman is going to play a big part in the film. The duo is featured together in nearly every piece of marketing material and they show up alongside each other in all the footage.
That’s far from an issue, to be clear. Selina Kyle last showed up in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises, but many fans agreed that it wasn’t the meatiest of roles for Anne Hathaway. This time around, however, the film has seemingly placed her in the almost a co-starring role next to Bruce Wayne.
How she factors into the rest of the movie is unclear. Surely her story will intersect with the dealings of The Riddler or Penguin, but details remain murky. At the very least, fans will be able to see the exploration of the duo’s unique romance, something which has been a key element of some of Batman’s recent comics.
As for learning more details, fans can learn them all when The Batman hits theaters worldwide on March 4.
