After shutting down production earlier this year due to COVID-19 concerns, The Batman; the Robert Pattinson-led reboot from War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves; is ready to swoop back into action. Not only is production ramping back up in September; but the movie will get a first look at the DC FanDome event this Saturday, Aug. 22. In anticipation of the Comic-Con alternative, Reeves took to Twitter to debut the title treatment for The Batman, and an original graphic poster by DC Comics artist and publisher Jim Lee.
Matching the blood-red light of Pattinson’s costume test, the image finds a grungier, armored Batman preparing to descend into Gotham. Set photos from London this past winter showed off a stuntman in the costume, which looked not unlike like Bruce Wayne’s cobbled-together Batman costume in Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Zero Year storyline.
On Wednesday, DC announced that the FanDome digital convention would split into separate events: the “Hall of Heroes” panels on Aug. 22, which include a first look at The Batman and a Q&A with Reeves, and a second batch of events focused more on comics and TV for later in September.
Warner Bros. Pictures will release The Batman in theaters on Nov. 4, 2021. A spinoff TV series set in Gotham City is also expected to arrive to HBO Max sometime in the future.
