The Batman TV Spot teases the new reboot, with a full new trailer coming next month
We have been waiting for “The Batman” for a long time. Even after director Matt Reeves took over from Ben Affleck, and once Robert Pattinson became our new Bruce Wayne, it took a little while. But the DC Comics adaptation is finally releasing early next year, and the hype train is about to leave the station, as evidenced by this new TV spot which, fun to say, has 0% new footage. That being said, its paramount importance is showcasing the brand new full length trailer that sits just around the corner.
Batman TV spot
For those who have watched the initial trailer for “The Batman” that came out last year repeatedly, like me, this 30-second spot contains nothing new. It’s just a compact version of what we’ve seen before. Battinson kicking ass. The Riddler being scary. An extremely dark vision of Gotham City. But it’s the end of the spot that’s worth highlighting, as it promises we’ll have a new trailer during DC FanDome on October 16. Plan accordingly.
The new Batman trailer arrives at the DC FanDome. Again.
Over the past year, many festivals and events have been forced to go digital and this has continued this year as well. It has happened with varying degrees of success, but it’s pretty safe to say that DC FanDome has knocked it out of the park. Although it was online, it felt inclusive, with exclusive content that people genuinely cared about and, remarkably, there was a lot of energy. This is something that Comic-Con @ Home was sorely lacking.
The highlight was the panel for “The Batman,” which gave us our first real look at the highly anticipated film, which will be the character’s first solo film in nearly a decade by the time it arrives. Because the movie has been delayed multiple times due to the pandemic, we have toured DC FanDome again for Warner Bros. drops another new trailer. And they’re already ramping it up, so we can only hope it’s as good as that first trailer. And, more specifically, that the movie is as good as the trailer claims it is.
“The Batman” features a stacked cast including Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Colin Farrell as Penguin and Andy Serkis as Alfred. Peter Sarsgaard, Barry Keoghan and Jayme Lawson complete the set.
We’ll make sure to bring you the new trailer as soon as it’s available.
“The Batman” is currently set to hit theaters on March 4, 2022.
