By announcing the Batman 2021 new look in the new Batman movie, DCEU has swirled numerous rumors around the Batman 2021 cast. Who will be the next Batman? Who will play as the Batman 2021 villains? And When does the Batman movie come out? This blog will inform you of all the latest things to know about the new Batman movie coming up in 2021.
Production team and filming development
The Batman 2021:
Directed by: Matt Reeves
Writing Credits: Peter Craig, Bill Finger, Bob Kane, Matt Reeves
Produced by: Dylan Clark, Simon Emanuel, Walter Hamada, Matt Reeves, …
Cinematography by: Greig Fraser
Warner Bros. and DC Films have tried for several years to get a new solo Batman movie off the ground. In August 2020, DC Films president Walter Hamada confirmed that the film was no longer part of the DCEU, but took place in a different universe within DC Film’s multiverse.
Originally conceived by Ben Affleck, the film is now co-written and directed by Matt Reeves, whose previous credits include Let Me In and the last two-thirds of Planet of the Apes trilogy. Since that, there have been constant updates on the new Batman movie as Reeves found his exciting new cast and announced their additions on social media. Moreover, Greig Fraser works as cinematographer, reuniting with Reeves after their collaboration on Let Me In (2010).
In March, Warner Bros decided to move the filming production to Liverpool, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. By August, filming will be limited to England, and crew members will be required to live close to the production area and not leave to the surrounding community. Exterior shots for Gotham City will be filmed in Chicago in mid-October. Therefore, the film has approximately three more months of filming and is expected to finish by the end of 2020.
The Batman 2021 cast
Who is playing the new Batman?
First, let’s look back to our previous Batman actors. Who has the best Batsuit?
Obviously, the later the Batsuit is designed, the more imposing it looks. But no matter what they are wearing, all of them show refined manners and attitudes. Without the appearance of Ben Affleck in the new Batman movie, DC fandom must feel surprised but excited to see how different the new Batman actor 2021 is.
Initially, there was a lot of fictitious news spread on the social network. Until May 2019, the new Batman filmmaker, Matt Reeves, revealed two men in his list: Robert Pattison and Nicholas Hoult. These two actors had experience acting as Beast in X-Men as well as abilities to play complicated roles. They also did screen tests during the week of May 20. If you hadn’t known yet, could you guess who would be the next Batman? Reeves was heading to a Batman described “as around 30 years old, and the story is neither another re-hashing of his origin nor the tale of a seasoned crimefighter ruling Gotham City. He is Bruce Wayne still trying to find his footing on his way to becoming the genius detective” That was the younger vision of Batman which was hard for Matt Reeves to decide who would be more fitting.
Despite much debate, Pattinson finally won at the end. Explaining why Twilight star is chosen, the filmmaker expressed his appreciation for this man: “…he’s just a gifted actor. He’s been working on his craft in this really incredible way, and he also happens to be a tremendous, passionate sort of fan of Batman that way that I am and so…he looks like Batman but more than anything, he has the soul of someone I think can play a Batman like you’d never seen before.” That’s really a brilliant decision as we might admit from the Batman trailer. Robert Pattinson has received generally good reactions from the public, it can be the chance for him to renew his previous images and diversify his acting career.
The Batman 2021 actor also shows the DCEU fandom how much he can empathize with this character. Pattinson told The New York Times: “His morality is a little bit off. He’s not the golden boy, unlike almost every other comic-book character. There is a simplicity to his worldview, but where it sits is strange, which allows you to have more scope with the character.” There is must-saying that not anyone can see this character thoroughly as the Twilight star. What is more, he really showed how he could deserve the Batman 2021 actor with his perfect Batman voice: “I am vengeance” in the trailer, as well as his Batman-mask-matched face.
After all, although Pattison is seen as a controversial choice of Reeves, there is no doubt that he will bring DC fandom another look of Batman, “a” little more unkempt, a little vulnerable Bruce Wayne to be more exactly. The new Dark Knight movie takes place when Bruce Wayne is becoming Batman, who is only known as a masked vigilante.
The Batman 2021 villains
In superhero film series, the supporting cast holds such an important element to expose or explicit traits of the main character effectively. So, in the new Batman movie, who will be Batman’s partner in the Gotham City Police Department, and who might be Batman’s major contender? Let’s take a glance at the rumors circulating around the Batman cast 2021 and see the last decision of director Reeves.
Jeffrey Wright, who is famous for his role in HBO’s Westworld, is rumored to play Commissioner James Gordon. Before that, It was also supposed Wright would link to the role on The Hollywood Reporter. Finally, Reeves confirmed that on Twitter in September 2019. Hence, Wright becomes the first African-American actor, or non-white actor period, to play Gordon, after Simmons’ Gordon.
Another Batman 2021 casting rumor said that Zoe Kravitz had beaten another actress like Vanessa Kirby to get the role of Catwoman. At first, The Crown star was surprised by that rumor, and told Entertainment Tonight that she didn’t know anything about it. And now, DC fans are waiting for her burn of this role, as she tried to hit the gym beforehand. Anne Hathaway, who portrayed that role before in 2012′s The Dark Knight Rises, also sends her biggest congrats to Kritz on Instagram.
Next, Jonah Hill was reported to play an undisclosed bad guy (maybe The Riddler) in the new Batman movie. Some others assumed that he could play Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin. However, Paul Dano is the last name for the role of The Riddler. How expecting to have this villain appeared for the first time in a live-action Batman movie.
The Riddler may be the biggest contender in The Batman 2021
Reeves confirmed Carmine Falcone would also be rocking up in Gotham’s underworld. He is played by John Turturro.
The last set of casting announcements is Max and Charlie Carver, who will play mystery roles.
What The new Batman 2021 trailer has revealed
How did you feel after the first official Batman trailer was released? Undoubtedly, there were full of brutal, action-packed and prodigious scenes. But, what can we expect more in this upcoming movie, except fierce fights as in previous versions?
The new vision of Batman and other characters
Don’t worry. The trailer has shown some probably shocking appearances of Bruce Wayne. It doesn’t look like any existing playboy version that fans may expect, neither do the Cape Crusader’s new suit and Batmobile. We also get initial looks at Catwoman, Commissioner Gordon, and even Colin Ferrell as the Penguin. Reeves emphasized that many of these characters are still coming into themselves: Selina Kyle is not Catwoman yet, The Riddler and The Penguin both just start their own criminal careers. Those are because the film is set during the second year of the Caped Crusader, with Bruce Wayne in the midst of his crime-fighting days and finding his feet as a vigilante – so it won’t be an origins story.
Reeves continues stressing: “And that is when the murders start to happen, and then the murders begin to describe sort of the history of Gotham in a way that only reinforces what he knows about Gotham, but it opens up a whole new world of corruption that goes much farther. But as that story starts to come out, without being an origin tale for him, it ends up being something that touches on his origins.” His reveal on the plot makes the new Batman movie more attractive and interesting to see than ever.
The Riddler may be the real big villain
Another uncovered detail is the battle between the primary antagonist Paul Dano’s Riddler and Batman. The new Batman trailer reveals us a look at a greeting card- the hidden message Riddler left for Jeffrey Wright’s Jim Gordon and the Caped Crusader. The Riddler asks: “What does a liar do when he’s dead?” What an interesting question! Could you answer that? According to Reeves, compared to the Riddler of Jim Carrey, “Paul Dano plays a version of the Riddler that no one has ever seen before… what he is doing is going to blow people’s minds.” So, let’s see how the Riddler can challenge “The World’s greatest detective”.
Last but not least, what we are waiting for in the new Batman movie is the interactions between Batman characters, a high-octane thrill from the beginning to the end.
The Batman official logo, artwork and more
The director Matt Reeves has revealed the official logo and some artwork for the new Batman movie. He was excited to share cool DC fandome artwork by Jim Lee. Although they are just pencil-sketching, the designers created them based on two main colors: red and black. Black color makes the Code Red of the Dark Knight much more impressive, or more Batman-existing as Gordon intended.
Also a new piece of promo art: the Batsuit and Batmobile
Do you expect to see how this high-tech Bat’s vehicle moves around Gotham streets? As you may know, this version does away with previous iterations in favour of a lean American V10 car.
The new batman movie release date
The film was originally supposed to be released on June 21, 2021, but then was shifted to October 1, 2021 due to the pandemic. Because Pattinson was diagnosed with COVID-19, the filming production will continue with other none-Batman scenes while the star quarantines at home. However, the new Batman movie could be even more fascinating to hit the theater at Halloween, due to its noir-influenced The Long Halloween comic book.
