It was additionally reported that Colin Farrell (DUMBO) was in talks to play Penguin, so if these discussions pans out, we should always hear a affirmation about that earlier than too lengthy. We nonetheless do not know all that a lot about THE BATMAN at this stage, however Matt Reeves has teased that it’s going to lastly do justice to Batman’s fame of the World’s Best Detective.
It’s very a lot a degree of view-driven, noir Batman story. It’s instructed very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a narrative that can be thrilling but in addition emotional. It’s extra Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen within the movies. The comics have a historical past of that. He’s purported to be the world’s best detective, and that’s not essentially been part of what the flicks have been. I’d love this to be one the place once we go on that journey of monitoring down the criminals and making an attempt to resolve against the law, it’s going to permit his character to have an arc in order that he can undergo a change.
THE BATMAN is already slated for a June 25, 2021 launch.
