11 Dope Things From ‘The Batman’ Trailer
The latest trailer for Matt Reeves’s The Batman certainly blew our minds! Here’s a breakdown of the trailer and the scenes that stuck with us.
Check out the new trailer for The Batman and the breakdown of the dopest things below:
- The Riddler (Paul Dano) with his coffee.
Oh boy. One thing about Edward Enigma, he likes to leave his mark. I did not, however, know he enjoyed a late night coffee at a nice diner. A decent man. From this shot alone, we’re definitely psyched for Paul Dano’s take on the rogue!
- James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) and the bat signal.
There’s been a handful of bat signals, each awesome in their own right. What do you think of this thinner and longer signal? Remember, it’s not just a signal, it’s a warning.
- Bruce’s (Robert Pattinson) rage during an interrogation.
I personally love seeing the rare moments when Batman loses his cool. While it’s not what people think of when they normally think of the caped crusader, I like the idea of a young and slightly oversensitive Batman. It’s just so much more interesting. Even if it is contained to just short bursts.
- The Cat (Zoë Kravitz) and the Bat.
It’s true love. Zoë Kravitz is perfect casting for Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne, and she looks like she’ll absolutely dominate the role.
- The Riddler and his freaking riddles, man.
I do not have Bruce’s patience with riddles. Especially when there’s lives on the line. Simple trivia would do just fine, thanks.
- The Penguin (Colin Farrell).
I didn’t know Colin Farrell would look this good as the Penguin, but here we are. This movie is full of surprises.
- Bulletproof bat, bulletproof bat!
It’s not the first bulletproof batsuit, but this shot is amazing. I love the idea of him taking hits from heavy artillery and it just being a minor inconvenience. I love an overpowering Batman.
We’ve seen shots of this batmobile before, but we haven’t seen it in this much action. Just like the suit, it’s overpowering.
- Riddler goes live.
In the age of escalated social media, it makes sense for an egomaniac like The Riddler to take to live-streaming. Especially if it gets a rise out of the Dark Knight. It’s perfectly gimmicky, but the terror this inspires in Gotham makes The Riddler a threat you don’t want to underestimate.
- Cat suit.
I love how practical Catwoman’s suit is, but I love the look on Selina’s face even more. She truly looks worried and concerned, which isn’t a common emotion we see in the cool cat. Is she worried for herself, Bruce, all of Gotham, or something else entirely? This just stirs the pot more.
- Batman being dramatic.
Most of the stuff Bruce does is over-the-top and uncalled for, and I love it when the directing incorporates this into the imagery. It makes me roll my eyes, but I know it terrifies Gotham’s worst.
