A new day is dawning in Gotham City and we finally have our first look at Warner Bros. and DC’s next iteration of the iconic Dark Knight. Director Matt Reeves took the virtual stage for Saturday’s DC FanDome event and introduced the first ever footage of his upcoming film, The Batman, which stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne. Fans have been waiting for quite some time to see Pattinson in action, and this footage finally grants that opportunity. You can check it out above!
The Batman was initially scheduled to arrive in theaters next summer, but the date was pushed to the fall due to the shutdowns caused by COVID-19. The film’s London production was put on hold a few weeks after beginning, so there is still quite a lot of work left to do. The current plan is for filming to resume next month, moving from an actual location to a set. Fortunately, according to co-writer Mattson Tomlin, these delays haven’t caused any changes to the film itself.
