The film ‘The Batman’ is already considered one of the most anticipated of 2022, and fans of the beloved vigilante can look forward to an independent comic book adaptation with no direct connection to the DCEU multiverse.
Producer Dylan Clark explained to Empire that this new film is unrelated to the events of ‘The Flash’ and previous DC films.
“Warner Bros. there’s a multiverse where they’re exploring different ways of using the character… We didn’t get involved in that. Matt is interested in taking this character to his emotional depths and shaking it deep inside.” , did he declare.
In the post in question, it was revealed that one of the conditions for director Matt Reeves to agree to make the film was “to stress for Affleck and for Warner Bros. that he would need to be able to create an iteration with a more personal look.
That means the filmmaker and his creative team wouldn’t be forced to tie the production together with all of the other DCEU comic book adaptations.
In this way, ‘The Batman’ will be presented to the public as an independent story from previous projects already released by DC.
Check out the official synopsis:
“Two years of chasing the streets like Batman (Robert Pattinson), instilling fear in the hearts of criminals, took Bruce Wayne into the shadow of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies – Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis) and Lieutenant James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) – among the corrupt network of officials and prominent figures in the city, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance among his dear citizens.
When an assassin targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic manipulations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the world’s greatest sleuth on an investigation into the underworld, where he meets characters like Selina Kyle / Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot / Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro) and Edward Nashton / Riddler (Paul Dano).
As the evidence begins to draw closer to the truth and the scale of the criminal’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and deliver justice for the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City. .
Recall that ‘The Batman’ should be released on March 4 of next year.
In an interview, Reeves commented that the feature film will be different from previous films and won’t come across as a traditional origin story like we’ve seen in the past. As he explained, the film will reference its origins, showing a much more emotional and complex perspective.
“I felt like we had seen a lot of origin stories for the character. It seems like things are going deeper and deeper into that fantasy, and I was like, ‘Well, a place where we didn’t go found it the way the first year comics do, stepping right into a young Batman, not being an origin tale, but by referring to its origins and shaking it up to the point. heart. You can make your story really practical, but I also thought this might be the most touching Batman movie ever made. “
