A few months ago The Batman director Matt Reeves gave us out first look at Robert Pattinson’s Batman standing next to the badass new version of the Batmobile that we will see in action in the movie.
A concept model of that Batmobile has now surfaced online that was created by concept model maker Jeff Frost, and it provides us with a closer and more detailed look at an early design of the Batmobile.
I actually love the new muscle car Batmobile design and I’m excited to actually see it in action!
Robert Pattinson is leading the cast in the role of Batman and he is joined by Jeffrey Wright (Westworld) as Commissioner James Gordon, Zoë Kravitz (Big Little Lies) as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, Andy Serkis (Black Panther) as Alfred Pennyworth, newcomer Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, John Turturro (The Night Of) as Carmine Falcone and Peter Sarsgaard (Green Lantern) as Gil Colson. Gil Perez-Abraham (Orange is the New Black), Charlie Carver (Teen Wolf) and Max Carver (Teen Wolf) have also been cast in undisclosed roles.
The Batman will be a noir-style film that will lean into Batman in his detective mode. The director said that it’s going to tell a deep and psychological story and confirmed that the movie will not be an origin story. However, it will acknowledge his origin and how it’s still something that he’s “majorly struggling” with. When previously talking about the film, Reeves said:
“It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. 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.”
The Batman is now scheduled to hit theaters on October 1, 2021.
