Robert Pattinson’s The Batman Takes Another Inspiration From George Clooney’s Infamous Stint
Robert Pattinson and Matt Reeves’ The Batman is one of the most exciting future DC project. The movie is currently being shot and Batman set photos are showing eagle-eyed fans new clues every day. Matt Reeves’ has already spoken at length about the movie during DC FanDome.
What Influences The Batman 2022?
By far fans have had a good dose of Pattinson as Batman. The trailer shows the ‘noir’ influence from movies like Se7en, Taxi Driver, China Town among others. The Long Halloween comic book also sets a tone for the dark tale along with Batman: Year Two.

Matt Reeves’ noir Batman tale flaunts the ‘detective side’ of the caped crusader. Pattinson is shown in his early thirties as Bruce Wayne who is still finding his foot in the crime ridden Gotham. From The Batman trailer it is certain that neither the citizens nor the Gotham Police Department trusts the Dark Knight. Further, Riddler’s clues and murders are leaving a trail for Batman to find his own part in the growing crime in the city. Reeves explained during the FanDome,
He’s not yet the vision of the character where he becomes a vision of hope for the city. He’s early in the trajectory, and so they’re afraid of him, frankly. He’s kind of a growing legend. That is one of the things we will confront in the course of the story, and that Rob has to sort of deal with in playing the character, which is how he’s perceived.
Much of Reeves’ work by far exudes gritty, ‘no where is safe’ kind of vibe. While only a portion if the movie was shot till August, the trailer revealed during DC FanDome looked like Reeves and Pattinson has got much in place in terms of movie treatment and storyline.
Reveals From Batman Set Photos
Frankly, The Batman movie has seen various setbacks and most due to the Coronavirus. The movie resumed production after the lockdown only to get shut again as Pattinson caught the virus mid shooting. However, the production is back in full swing since and each location that Reeves shot in set photos leaed and gave fans a new bit of information.
The set photos from Chicago revealed that Flash exists in Pattinson’s Bat-verse and so does Harvey Dent! Recently Daily Mail produced some set photos that gave us a better look at what we are in for. The new photos showcase a massive Bat cave entry completed with trees. One can also see bomb blasted buildings telling us more about Riddler’s plans to annihilate Pattinson’s Bat-verse. But one interesting thing is the ice skating rink. Which tells us the Winter is going to be long and dark for Batman. (Remember the Long Halloween influence!)
Nonetheless, last we saw ‘winters’ influence on any Batman flick that would be George Clooney’s infamous Batman & Robin. The movie had Dr Freeze in it which least to say was a bad treatment for the character.

While Robert Pattinson’s Batman already has an impressive Rouge gallery addition of Mr Freeze to the mix will be cathartic for fans. What more? Well, fans have already imagined Mandalorian star Giancarlo Esposito as Mr Freeze!
