The wait is finally over! The Batman movie will be releasing in 2022, and fans are going crazy with excitement. For the last few years, there have been rumours of a possible spin-off following Robin or Nightwing if the film were to succeed. Now that we know more about the plot and cast of The Batman Movie, I’ll break down all our speculation into this article so you can get up to speed on everything we know so far!
The Batman Latest Movie Release Date Updates:
The Batman is due in US cinemas on March 4, 2022. Its original release date of 25 June 2021 has been shifted due to delays related to the coronavirus, first to October 2021 and now to the following year.
A UK release date has yet to be confirmed – but production has been confirmed to be able to resume in September 2020, on the condition of shooting on purpose-built sets rather than on location, as was the case before the global lockdown.
What will be the title for the latest Batman movie?
The current title is The Batman. To date, it has been confirmed that the film will be released in 2022 and nothing else. Marketing for the movie has also not yet begun, but there are a few rumours of what can happen from now to its release date, so we’ll go into those shortly!
Who will be cast as Bruce Wayne?
We don’t know who’s playing Bruce Wayne; in this new feature-length action thriller; just yet – however, he or she will join; an already star-studded ensemble; including actor Joaquin Phoenix (who was last seen on our screens in Joker), actress; Zazie Beetz (known for her role as Van) and comedian; Bill Murray (most famous for his roles with Wes Anderson).
It has been confirmed; that Ben Affleck; will be playing Bruce Wayne, and he is one of the few cast members; who have already been announced; for the movie.
There are also rumours; that Warner Bros. may now consider a female, as Batman following Wonder Woman’s success; in 2017 (although this doesn’t seem like it’ll happen as The Batman is set to come out in 2020).
However, there were rumours before about whether a white actor would play him after Heath Ledger played him so well, but it seems unlikely given how they’re making up for all their mistakes with diversity casting!
What could other characters return?
There’s some talk of Catwoman returning in her own standalone film – which we’ll go into more detail about later on.
Robin is one of the most iconic characters in the Batman franchise, and there have been rumours that at least one Robin will return to The Dark Knight. There are also hints from WB that Dick Grayson could be returning (as he took over as Nightwing).
However, some people do not want a ‘kid sidekick’ anymore, so it would probably just depend on who they cast! It’s quite possible for them to use all Robins, but then again, this has never really happened before, so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens when casting decisions are made!
The Joker might make an appearance, too – Jared Leto said earlier this year he wants him back. This wouldn’t be surprising, considering his character was killed by Harley Quinn in the movie’s set-up.
The Batman movie Storyline:
The Batman movie is directed by and stars Ben Affleck. The film will explore the origin of Batman. As a result, too many people have seen previous versions to be able to enjoy it again. It takes place in Gotham City from Bruce Wayne’s perspective, rather than that of an outside observer or antagonist. The screenplay for the film was written by Chris Terrio and David S Goyer based on characters appearing in publications published by DC Comics since 1939, including various incarnations of Robin and Batgirl, Superman (played here by Amy Adams), Wonder Woman (played here) Zack Snyder has been confirmed as a director with filming starting early next year for release in 2016.”
Do I need to watch all batman movies before watching the latest addition?
It’s a good idea to check out the previous movies before seeing The Batman Movie. There are some references and callbacks that you’ll just miss if you haven’t seen them! It may also be worth it for someone interested in being able to have conversations about all of the character development and plotlines from start to finish but isn’t necessarily excited for this movie. These people will probably want to watch each one before they go see The Batman Movie as well.
