The Batman is finally coming to town! Nothing can’t stop us from hyping up this blockbuster movie.
We are now one month into 2022 and it is high time that we get the movie we all have been waiting for. The highly anticipated movie of Matt Reeves’ The Batman starring Robert Pattinson will be out this year and will assumably have the working title Vengeance.
When will The Batman be out in the cinemas?
It was originally dated to be released last June 25, 2021, but was pushed back to a later date because of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Luckily, the movie will be out in the cinemas by March 4, 2022, in the US.
However, the release date is only confirmed to be in the US and a UK date release is yet to be confirmed by the producers.
What to Expect?
The film is reportedly to have a running time of two (2) hours and 55 minutes including eight minutes of the credits. The film is known to be the longest solo Batman movie ever made.
It is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association and Director Matt Reeves confirmed that the film wrapped production in mid-March of 2021.
This new Batman film is presented as a dark detective crime story that tests The Dark Knight in ways that the fans of the franchise seemingly have not seen before.
If you’re a fan, you know that the funeral scene of the Batman was leaked previously online. With that, the director of the movie Reeves has then opted to simply release the scene in an official capacity, and in 4k!
Get a peek here.
In this scene, you get to see Bruce Wayne attending the funeral of former Gotham City Mayor Don Mitchell Jr. and later on was interrupted by the Riddler. Followed by a commotion outside the church, Bruse spots a shadowy figure, seemingly the Riddler up on the balcony. Later on, an SUV comes chasing through with GCPD Lieutenant Fordon demanding the driver of the vehicle to exit with their hands up, and you’ll see the driver is none other than Gotham district attorney Gil Colson.
Basically in the movie, it is Bruce Wayne’s second year fighting crime as Batman, where he pursues the Riddler, who is targeting Gotham’s elite. In the process, Bruce also uncovers dark secrets pertaining to the corruption in the city of Gotham as well as the role his own family plays in it.
