THE LAUNCH DATE
The expected release date of The batman It has been uncertain or has been frequently delayed for most of the development of the project, but the study finally put it on the release schedule at the end of January 2019. Warner Bros. Pictures has set June 25, 2021 as the date premiere officer.
A few days before the announcement of the studio, Reeves offered a clue as to when he waits for the film to reach movie theaters.
"I will not commit to this, but we are thinking that the movie will probably be by 2021, late spring or summer," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "Warner Bros. has supported me incredibly and has given me a lot of time and has shared the same passion I have for this story."
Like Aquaman's solo moviesY Wonder woman, It is expected that The batman focus on the famous Dark Knight of DC Comics, but perhaps less connected to the film universe of DC Comics in the studio. Reeves has described the story he is developing as "Noir-driven" with Batman "investigating a particular case that takes us to the world of Gotham."
"It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the movies," Reeves told The Hollywood Reporter in January. “The CMICS have a story about that. He is supposed to be the best detective in the world, and that has not necessarily been part of what the movies have been. ”
Rumors that the film adapted the popular story of Batman: Year One written by Frank Miller were denied by Reeves, who said he would not tell a story about the character's origin. In August 2018, Reeves said he expected to have a new draft of the script completed that month.
An unconfirmed report in early January 2019 indicated that cameras could start recording The batman in November. The report indicated that the movie script was "basically", and that the casting You can start seriously in the coming months.
Finally, filming has begun on the first days of January 2020 in London, where a series of police and mobile television vehicles painted with legends such as "Gotham Police" and "Gotham Action News" have been possible.

The dark knight It has a memorable villain galley, but at least one of those expected in The batman He hasn't had a prominent role in the live action movies for decades.
This is Pingno, which is interpreted by Colin Farrell. This time, Oswald Cobblepot moved away from the low and chubby figure we met in the Batman television series of the 60s, courtesy of Burgess Meredith, or the darkest of Danny DeVito, who was placed under the orders of Tim Burton in Batman Returns (1992).
The specialized Internet Movie Database (IMDb) portal registered in January 2020 as enemies of Batman to Gatbela (Zo Kravitz) and Riddler (Paul Dano).
One of the few cast members confirmed to The batman It's Andy Serkis, who succeeds Jeremy Irons (pictured) in the role of Butler Alfred Pennyworth.
Born in London in 1964, Serkis has lent his body and voice to memorable characters, such as Gollum (The Lord of the Rings), Caesar (The Planet of the Apes) and Snoke (Star Wars).
First announced in 2014, the project that will become The batman I initially had Affleck in charge of directing, producing, co-writing and starring in the film, sharing script tasks with the author of DC Comics and co-president of DC Films, Geoff Johns. Everything seemed fine in the project until the first reactions to Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice (in which Affleck made his debut as Batman) began to arrive.
Affleck's experience with the notoriously badly received Batman V. Superman (which resulted in the interview that led to the "Sad Affleck" meme) seemed to bitter his relationship with the feature film alone, and announced his departure from the director's chair in January 2017. Matt Reeves was named the new director of the film one month later.
However, the problems were not over for The Batman, since a week later a report was published indicating that Affleck could be about to leave when Bruce Wayne and the studio were looking for a way to "get the Batman out of Affleck with elegance." That report was published on the second day of the San Diego Comic-Con of 2017, which led Affleck to address him during the Warner Bros. Pictures movie panel two days later.
"Let me be very clear: I am the luckiest man in the world," Affleck said when asked about the report during the Justice League report (CNN goes). “Batman is the coolest part of any universe: Marvel's DC. It is incredible. … I'm so excited to do it. ”
"I knew there was a misconception that, as I did not direct it, I was not enthusiastic about it, but it is incredible," he continued. "And I still can't believe I made two movies and have a great story with this studio."
After a long period of uncertainty regarding his attachment to the film, Affleck finally made it official in late January 2019 by confirming a report in which the studio was looking for a new actor for the main role of the film.
