The Batman – DC FanDome Teaser
The Batman – Matt Reeves & Robert Pattinson
Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson’s The Batman is a very crucial part of the new DC slate. Matt Reeves thinks his version of Batman will feel very emotional and impactful. Since his Batman takes on solving real-life issues like corruption unlike Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck’s versions who face intergalactic threats.
“There’s something in there that feels very psychological, very emotional,” Reeves said about the film, “and it felt like there was a way of exploring that along with the corruption in this place, Gotham. That feels very current.”
Elaborating the theme further the director said, “There’s almost no time when you can’t do a story about corruption. But today, it still seems incredibly resonant and maybe, from my perspective, maybe more so than maybe at another time.” Let’s see how Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson’s version of Batman turns out when it releases in 2022.
The Suicide Squad – James Gunn, The Squad & Sharkman
The only other tentpole DC film scheduled to release in 2021, James Gunn helmed Suicide Squad is a soft reboot/sequel to the 2016 David Ayer-directed Suicide Squad.
