The highly-anticipated new Batman movie, titled simply 'The Batman', has suffered various pandemic-related delays but now has a release date set for spring of 2022. It will be the first standalone Batman film since 2012.
In this latest version of Batman, the popular superhero’s early days will be explored, but skipping over the origin story focusing on Batman as he is in the process of discovering himself, before he has become a fully-fledged crimefighter. Directed by Matt Reeves, the new movie is said to be more of a detective-style take on Batman than we have seen before.
When is ‘The Batman’ released?
Having been delayed several times and originally slated for release in 2021, an official release has finally been set for ‘The Batman’ of March 4, 2022 in the USA. The movie was originally due out in June 2021 and then October 2021, with both delays being put down to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Who is starring in the new Batman movie?
The big news, of course, is that the new Batman himself will be portrayed by none other than Robert Pattinson. The ‘Twilight’ star was a controversial choice, but he is determined to make the role his own and bring a new take to the DC superhero. Expect a wilder, more unhinged Batman than seen previously.
