The Batman 2022 is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. However, the upcoming version promises to bring a completely different experience from its predecessors. Will this be the darkest perspective on a DC superhero? Let’s take a look at what you need to know before enjoying The Batman.

Initially, the producer intended The Batman to be part of the DCEU. Ben Affleck will do two things at once, starring and directing the film. However, he announced his resignation as director in 2017. The main reason is that Ben wants to focus on playing Bruce Wayne. So, Matt Reeves was confirmed as the new director of The Batman just a few months later.

2. Robert Pattinson replaces Ben Affleck as lead actor

At the beginning of 2019, Ben Affleck dropped the role of Batman entirely. He struggled with addiction so filming Justice League would not be good for his mental health.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros is focusing on the direction of the DCEU. In addition, Matt Reeves wanted to tell a younger Batman story. In the summer of 2019, Robert Pattinson was cast as the main character of The Batman. This caused quite a lot of mixed reactions from fans of the cult DC superhero.

3. The Batman 2022 will not be in the DCEU

In an interview, producer Dylan Clark said: “Warner Bros have a multiverse. They’re exploring different ways to use the character. We’re not involved in that.” Furthermore, it has been reported that The Batman takes place on Earth-2 instead of the main storyline.

4. Two years after Bruce Wayne became Batman

In 2020, Matt Reeves confirmed that the upcoming movie takes place just 2 years after Bruce Wayne became Batman. As a result, DC’s Batman: Year Two comic will influence the film’s script.

5. Riddler (Paul Dano) is the main villain

At first, Deathstroke was slated to be the main antagonist of The Batman 2022. However, that plan changed when Matt Reeves took the director’s chair. Paul Dano who acted in 12 Years A Slave, officially joined The Batman in 2019.

He played the role of Riddler. His targets are unscrupulous officials and public figures. Besides, he provoked Batman through word puzzles about crime scenes.

6. The appearance of Catwoman

Actress Zoë Kravitz has appeared in X-Men: First Class and Mad Max: Fury Road. She will become Catwoman in DC’s latest live-action. She previously voiced the character in The Lego Batman Movie.

Also, Catwoman is not on The Batman’s list of villains. The character will be a close ally to Robert Pattinson’s Dark Knight, as well as a lover.

7.  Andy Serkis as Batman’s loyal butler

Andy Serkis will play Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne’s loyal butler. He has appeared in The Lord of the Rings and Black Panther.

Alfred is someone who is deeply concerned about the young master’s mental state. Moreover, he didn’t just serve tea or wash clothes stained with blood. This character also plays an important role when Riddler begins to dig up the secrets of the Wayne family.

The Batman was scheduled to be released in June 2021. However, the producer has postponed the schedule to March 4, 2022 due to the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic.

Will this new version of Batman make fans happy? Let’s wait together.
