Warner Bros. and DC's ‘The Batman’ movie trailer reveals new footage of Robert Pattinson as the Dark Knight. Pattinson suits up as the newest live-action iteration of ‘Batman’ in writer-director Matt Reeves' movie, set to hit theaters March 2022. Joining Pattinson in the DC movie are Zoë Kravitz as ‘Catwoman’, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as Jim Gordon, and Colin Farrell as Penguin.

The first ‘The Batman’ movie trailer was unveiled during DC FanDome 2020, showing off a first official look at Pattinson's Batman and Wright's Jim Gordon, as well as revealing Riddler would be the main villain. However, the DC movie hadn't completed filming at that point and the amount of footage available to cut the trailer together was limited. As Warner Bros. confirmed through their DC FanDome 2021 announcements, the second trailer was expected to debut during this year's event. In the time since FanDome 2020, ‘The Batman’ completed filming, giving Reeves much more to work with in cutting together the second trailer.

Now during DC FanDome 2021, ‘The Batman’ movie trailer was released, featuring a ton of new footage from Pattinson's turn as the ‘Dark Knight’. The video features an unmasked Dano as The Riddler, but still frames the villain as the linchpin for the main plot of the movie. There's also plenty of new looks at Kravitz'sCatwoman - including her costume as well as various different hairstyles she sports - and Farrell's ‘Penguin’, who faces off with ‘Batman’ at one point. ‘The Batman’ trailer also reveals Serkis' as Alfred, Bruce Wayne's butler and confidante in his vigilantism, as well as new shots of Pattinson's Batmobile in action. 

There's a great deal to unpack in ‘The Batman’ movie trailer, but perhaps the most important is simply how good of a trailer it is. While ‘The Batman’ teaser released at FanDome 2020 worked to get potential viewers excited about the latest live-action ‘Batman’ movie, it was clearly limited by the amount of footage at Reeves' disposal. This new ‘Batman’ trailer offers a much more complete idea of what to expect from Reeves and Pattinson's movie.   -Screen Rant
