The Batman is an upcoming American superhero movie featuring the DC Comics character of the same name. Produced by DC Films and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, this film will be the eleventh film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and a reboot of the Batman film franchise.
Director Matt Reeves, who wrote the screenplay with Mattson Tomlin, in collaboration with the Warner Brothers Studios, brings to us the new age Batman. Here’s everything for you to know about it.

The production of the movie has been indefinitely suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak. However, the official release date of the movie is pushed back and is presently set for October 1st, 2021.
The Batman Cast: Who All Are Going To Be There?
For the lead role in The Batman, we have Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne aka Batman. After his groundbreaking role in The Lighthouse and this upcoming movie, Tenet by Nolan looks promising, we think Pattension might be a good fit to play, Batman.
Along with him, we have the star from Big Little Lies, Zoë Kravitz for the role of Selina Kyle aka Catwoman. Angels in America star Jeffrey Wright too will be there as James Gordon alongside Dead Man Walking’s Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson.
Other than these, we are going to see Paul Dano as Edward Nashton / Riddler and John Turturro as Carmine Falcon. Jayme Lawson will also be a part of the cast as Bella Reál, Andy Serkis himself as Alfred Pennyworth with Colin Farrell in the role of Oswald “Oz” Cobblepot / Penguin.
Moreover, Gil Perez-Abraham, Charlie Carver, and Max Carver are also a part of The Batman’s cast. However, they are cast for roles that are yet to be disclosed.
The Batman Storyline: What Will Happen In This Movie?
This movie is going to focus on the younger version of Batman, who is played by Pattinson in the movie. The movie inclines more towards the detective side of Batman rather than the Superhero side, on which the actual foundation of the comics lies.
This movie is the first of a Batman film trilogy the film is intended to become. The first look of the movie is a teaser showing the Batman suit against a red backdrop. The movie indeed looks promising.
