The Batman Movie Review That Aired This Month

The long awaited film of 2020 has now been released on March 3, 2022. The Batman is a film that is billed as a ‘Love Letter’ to the superhero character, Batman. Matt Reeves(The Dawn of the Planets of the Apes), as director, takes the audience into the world of Gotham City that never stops sleeping from its criminality. Warner Brothers is rebooting the new Batman franchise after its success with Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy. Now this DC Comics character is believed to be in the hands of Matt Reeves who also wrote the film script with Peter Craig. “I Am Vengeance.” A very memorable quote is often used among fans who are waiting for this film to air after the trailer for The Batman comes out. This sentence coincides with the epic opening.

The opening of this film no longer uses the scene of the death of Bruce Wayne’s parents that we often see from previous The Batman (2022) . This choice is very appropriate by presenting the chaos of the city of Gotham which is full of uncontrollable criminals. Besides that, it really makes the audience understand the meaning of Batman’s signal in the eyes of these criminals. Batman is so feared that the signal is considered a sign of ‘fear’. Bruce Wayne in Gotham has only been Batman for a year, not seeing many baddies of his caliber like Scarecrow or Deathstroke. Matt Reeves deliberately took inspiration from the comic ‘Batman: Year One’ by Frank Miller and illustrated by David Mazzucchelli.

This comic tells the early stories of Bruce Wayne as ‘the Dark Knight’, right with Batman Pattinson’s younger appearance than previous predecessors. Robert Pattinson plays a new Batman that is so fresh from the previous actors, Bruce Wayne here is not portrayed as a playboy who is so close to 80s comics but like an emo millennial kid who doesn’t get along too much. This is not negative but makes Pattinson have a strong characteristic of why his Batman is different from the others. Also, it makes sense given the plot written by Reeves and Craig, Bruce Wayne never went to ceremonial events after his parents died.

Robert Pattinson was previously best known for his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight series. Reeves did imagine Pattinson as Bruce Wayne after seeing him in the film ‘Good Time’ by directors Josh and Benny Safdie. Pattinson’s journey as Batman did not go smoothly because many DC fans wanted Ben Affleck back to play The Batman (2022) plný film. The difficulty in relating the script forced Affleck to resigned in 2019. However, this choice became the best choice because I as a connoisseur of ‘The Batman’ prefers the writing and demeanor of the Batman character in this film. one of the reasons is because Batman Pattinson does not kill and is the only Batman (not animated) who has that moral.

Pattinson himself has Zoe Kravitz as Batman’s love-interest, Selina Kyle or better known as Catwoman. Had failed in the audition for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ because it was considered too ‘Urban’ and the color of his skin. Kravitz did not hesitate to appear on the small screen to prove to the casting director and audience that his version of Selina also deserves to be carried with Michelle Pfeiffer who plays Catwoman in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. Pfeiffer previously also won the title of best Catwoman on screen. Kravitz appeared very charming and charismatic along with Pattinson. Catwoman can also be said to be the best performance by Zoe Kravitz at this time proving her talent and accuracy in Catwoman costumes.

Pattinson and Kravitz have a relationship that is full of romance, as in the comics the two have never really become an intimate couple even though it is full of romance. I last saw Paul Dano in the film Swiss Army Man where Dano and Daniel Radcliffe were stranded on an island and many funny things happened that I had not thought of before. Dano plays The Riddler, one of Batman’s most popular villains.

Riddler himself is a character who really likes puzzles, making him a very suitable character in the story of  The Batman  this time which was inspired by ‘Batman: The Long Halloween’ by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Tim Sale. The Long Halloween is a continuation form of ‘Batman : Year One ‘and tells Batman as a detective who is looking for the perpetrators of serial murders that are carried out every major holiday. The Riddler as a serial killer here is used to the fullest by Reeves. Riddler makes his opponent even more helpless, is the essence of Riddler himself. when the writers understand what the essence of the most dangerous villain in the plot of this film, making the Riddler a villain .
