Batman trailer has got everyone pumped for the movie
James Gunn is looking forward to watching DC’s ‘The Batman’, and the sneak-peek has got everyone even more excited.
The trailer shows Reeves’ new take on the mythology of the Dark Knight. Apparently, everything people have known about Batman to this point will be held up but also cast in a different light that will present the characters in a different way than they were used to.
How will this take be different from the several versions we have watched before? Reeves has talked about a desire to focus more on Batman as a detective – a major character element that is largely left out of the theatrical adaptations. This is what makes ‘The Batman’ a super interesting project, perhaps, this is why it’s the most anticipated DC movie James Gunn is looking forward to watching.
