A new trailer for DC’s upcoming movie The Batman will be released during the comics giant’s virtual convention DC FanDome on October 16. This trailer was also recently promised in a series of announcements the convention sent out last week.
The Batman is a much-anticipated and long-delayed movie, which wrapped filming back in March. Director Matt Reeves’ (Cloverfield, Felicity) The Batman will focus on the Caped Crusader–played by Robert Pattinson–in his early years: The second year of Batman’s career, and it’s not taking place on the same Earth as other DC movies like Justice League, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman. The big bads will be Riddler, played by Paul Dano (Swiss Army Man), and Penguin, played by Colin Farrell (True Detective), will also factor into the plot somehow. Check out the new tweet with a sweet audio clip from the movie below.
