The new Batman movie, titled, “The Batman,” is coming out March 4, 2022 and fans are eager to see it.
Many people were quick to judge Robert Pattinson when it was first announced that he had gotten the titular role in May of 2019. This was mainly due to the fact that he was notorious for his role as Edward in the “Twilight” film series. However, after his roles in films such as, “Good Times” and “The Lighthouse,” people began taking his acting abilities more seriously.
“I think it was unfair to judge Robert Pattinson so quickly after it was announced that he had gotten the role because people were basing his acting skills off of previous projects he had worked on when nobody actually knows whether or not he was a good choice to play Batman,” sophomore business major Lauren Ritirato said.
“I feel like Robert Pattinson getting the role created a lot of controversy among the fans; it adds another reason why it will be exciting to see the movie and see for ourselves how he does in the role,” sophomore education major Robert Metzger said.
On Aug. 22, 2020, during the DC Comics event–also referred to as DC Fanome–fans got the first glimpse of the film in a trailer. Although some fans had a newfound excitement for Pattinson’s Batman, others still held doubts he could truly portray the role of the superhero well.
On Dec. 27, 2021, another trailer was released that gave fans more of a look at the footage that would be in the movie. In addition, this was the first-time people saw Zoe Kravitz playing the role of Selena Kyle/Catwoman and Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/the Penguin.
Many people are eager to see the film, not only because of the actors in it, but also due to the fact that fans were expecting the movie to come out much earlier.
The original release date of “The Batman” was June 2021, however, due to the pandemic, filming was delayed and the release date moved to October 2021. However, due to more complications with production delays due to COVID-19, the current release date is March 4, 2022.
