Director Matt Reeves Drops Our Fist Look At The New Batmobile

Published

“It’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation”

In the modern era of cinema, the internet is no stranger to leaks and set photos. Most Directors are faced with the difficult challenge of deciding when and when not to release official photos. Recently, an onslaught of set photos have hit the web, showing the newly re-designed batman look, along with a glimpse of the “Batcycle” and possibly a look at catwoman.

Today, Matt Reeves decided to break the internet, giving us our first look at the new batmobile. Reeves describes ‘The Batman’ as a noir style film, told squarely on the shoulders of the dark knight. It would appear that Reeves is going with a truly grounded approach to the character. A “Year two” Batman, taking on Gotham’s criminal underworld, with a rogues gallery of villains.

“It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale,” he said. “It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.”

‘The Batman’ hits theaters June 25, 2021 | Stars: Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Colin Farrell, Andy Serkis, Paul Dano, Peter Sarsgaard, Jeffrey Wright

All Upcoming & In-Development DC Properties!

Published

on

With all these delays and announcements, it’s hard to keep up with which superhero is appearing when and where! As such, here’s a quick rundown to keep you up to date!

With Matt Reeve’s The Batman swinging through movie theatres since its wide release last Friday, Warner Bros. have given a big update to their upcoming DC properties. DC’s first property based on the pets of its well-known superheroes, DC League of Super-Pets, is instead flying to theatres July 29, 2022, instead of its May 20 date. For HBO Max, the studio has officially announced The Batman’s first spinoff – The Penguin, a show with Farrell repressing his role as the titular kingpin in the first official spinoff.

In Warner Bro’s main focus of DC development, the DCEU, there have been a multitude of release-date moves. Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, originally scheduled for an early Summer release in June, is now gearing up to release on October 21, 2022; The King of Atlantis has his sequel, Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom, splash into theatres on March 17, 2023, moving away from opening next door to Avatar 2. The Flash speeds past its November 4 date and instead opens in theatres June 23, 2023; and lastly, Shazam! Fury of the Gods instead releases its might this holiday season on December 16, 2022, rather than June 2023 – the only push forward in the group.

Outside these delays, we have Batgirl, scheduled to be released sometime in 2022 on HBO Max, and Blue Beetle, a film centred around the Jaime Reyes incarnation of the character, flying into theatres August 18, 2023. Other movies recently told to be in-development include Wonder Woman 3, again to be directed by Jenkins and with Gadot reprising her role as the titular heroine. HBO Max has some recently in-development properties as well, such as Wonder Twins, a film centred around an identical pair that activate their superpowers by touching hands and saying magical words, and Zatanna, which has Emerald Fennell attached to write, and J.J Abrams to produce.

HBO Max is also said to be developing some DCEU shows, most recently with another The Suicide Squad spin-off following the success of Peacemaker, which was recently renewed for a second season, as well as a Madame X series which is said to tie in with Justice League Dark, another series that has Abrams also attached, this time to executively produce. There have been many other shows and movies announced, but with little to no updates in years, it’s unclear whether they have been shelved or reworked into other DC projects.

So, to sum up all these announcements, find below an updated release schedule for every dated DC movie heading into theatres!

  • DC League of Super-Pets, July 29 2022
  • Black Adam, October 21 2022
  • Shazam! Fury of the Gods, December 16 2022

The Batman Director Matt Reeves Says Bruce Wayne is Inspired By Kurt Cobain

Published

on

The latest issue of Empire Magazine will feature new images and stories from the upcoming  DC film directed by Matt Reeves, ‘The Batman.’ In the latest issue, Reeves talks about his inspiration for this latest iteration of Gotham’s dark knight.

“When I write, I listen to music, and as I was writing the first act, I put on Nirvana’s ‘Something In The Way’. That’s when it came to me that, rather than make Bruce Wayne the playboy version we’ve seen before, there’s another version who had gone through a great tragedy and become a recluse. So I started making this connection to Gus Van Sant’s Last Days, and the idea of this fictionalised version of Kurt Cobain being in this kind of decaying manor.”

Reeves knew that Robert Pattinson would be perfect for the role after seeing his performance in Safdie Brothers’ Good Time, which initially caught his eye.

“In that movie you could really feel his vulnerability and desperation, but you could also feel his power,” Reeves explains. “I thought that was a great mix. He’s also got that Kurt Cobain thing, where he looks like a rock star, but you also feel like he could be a recluse.”

Robert Pattinson also shed some light as to what we can expect from his version of the dark knight. We get the picture, that this Bruce Wayne will be a dark, tormented soul, finding purpose through his nightly struggles in the streets of Gotham.

“Bruce has been hiding away,” says Pattinson. “He’s not really a socialite at all. He’s building all these little contraptions and things, just with Alfred. And even Alfred thinks he’s gone insane!”

Some of the differences we will see in the new incarnation, will even appear in the bat-suit, in the form of limited gadgets but also, the noticeable wear and tear of the suit.

“He’s been out every single night for two years, getting beaten up and shot and stabbed and burnt, and it shows,” the actor explains. “There’s a bullet graze on the cowl, right at the beginning. I don’t think that’s been done before.”

The Empire Magazine “Batman Edition” hits shelves this Thursday 23 December.
