    The Batman Trailer #1 (2022) | Movieclips Trailers - YouTube

    Also, two Superman films in the pipeline, both starring Henry Cavil.

    This film looks great. In the early Batman comics, Batman was an avenger, he killed the worst criminals, and they really played up the fact the he was primarily a detective. And he was obsessed, driven, almost insane. Hoping for the best in this movie.

    I read about the Superman films. Not much on that yet. I'll wait and see when they start production.

      Although I think the actor is competent. I really question the casting choice. I guess we'll find out.

        As you should. It's a terrible choice. And I don't say that from my typical anti-DC position, but from that of a casual cinephile.

          We'll see. We all thought Michael Keaton was a terrible choice in the 1989 Batman. He turned out all right.

          Although the Christian Bale Batman movies were the best movies, I liked the Ben Affleck portrayal the most.

          The warehouse fight in Batman V Superman is the best Batman scene I've ever watched.

            Keaton is different. He was a predominantly comedic actor at the time. Nobody had any idea what he could do. Comedic actors tend to have range, though. Pattison is human cardboard. He's Christian Bale without the personality (and that says a lot...) and gravitas.

            DC does not know how to cast their heroes. They got Wonder Woman right. I'll give them that. And Momao was fun in Aquaman, but he's *not* Aquaman...and I don't mean he's not the right skin color. Momao is Lobo and we all know it.

              You're right about Keaton.

              To be honest, I haven't seen Pattinson in anything. I just went by the reviews of a couple of his movies, and a few clips.

              But again, we'll see.

              Jesus....Yup, Momao is Lobo.

              But I think Cavill was perfectly cast as Superman, and Affleck was perfectly cast as Batman.

              Christian Bale made a really good Batman, but the Batman movies were great, and that made him look great.

              I think Ben Affleck was a perfectly cast Batman in a couple of flawed movies.

              To me the Snyder Cut Justice League movie was epic.

              But for some reason, the DC movies aren't as fun as the Marvel movies.

              The only thing I can see is that a Batman movie almost has to be really dark and serious, or he looks like an idiot. Batman doesn't really fit in with any of the other DC characters.

              Marvel created this entire universe of epic movies, all interconnected. I was wondering how they would combine the silliness of Guardians Of The Galaxy with the more serious Marvel characters. But it was done pretty well. They just made Thor a little funnier, which was easy, because Chris Hemsworth, it turns out, can be funny.

              And even if I agree with you, you're still wrong.

                I found Cavill to be too serious, if that makes sense. But, I think that's more the fault of the director than the actor. I'll give you this one (I don't even consider Superman movies when thinking about this issue because he's a hump of a character).

                Batfleck just wasn't for me. I just can't see him as Bruce Wayne. Took me straight out of the movies.

                  Do you ever consider, no matter who you are a fan of, that the entire concept of costumed heroes is...well...silly?

                  Why in the would would anyone put on a skin tight leather, spandex, rubber suit to fight crime?

                  Have you noticed that everyone in comics (or the movies) that has powers, is either a criminal or a hero? Aren't there any powered accountants? shoe salespeople, hairdressers?

                  If Batman were real, he would be arrested or killed on the first night out.

                  These are silly power fantasies for 5 year olds.

                  That realization doesn't mean I don't enjoy the whole thing.

                  Added later; It just occurred to me that there is a difference in the old Marvel and DC.

                  In the 1950s-1960s, DC comics were written for young kids. Maybe 7 year old.

                  Marvel comics were always written for an older audience. Mostly teenagers.

                  I go back to the Superman comics of the 1960s, and it's like they were written for a 5 year old, by a 13 year old. In fact, Jim Shooter wrote the Legion Of Superheroes comics for DC when he was 13. Weird.

                    I prefer to view the genre through the lens of mythology. Superheroes are merely American mythology. That's how I saw it as a kid and that's how I thought of it when I wanted to write comics.

                    Similar life lessons are taught both implicitly and, quite often, explicitly with stories either retold under different names or simply told in comic form (I remember Gilgamesh having an arc with the Avengers 30 or 40 yeas ago, not to mention Hercules, Thor, Zeus, etc.).

                    The skin tight suits were just a vehicle to portray the "superness" of a character, to show off the muscles to the reader. With female characters, they helped draw the eye of teenage boys (especially in the 90's when female body proportions became absurd).

                    There have been a few comics based around super characters doing mundane things. They never lasted long because, well, nobody wants to read about an accountant who can do math at super speed.

                    Regarding the difference in Marvel and DC, you can attribute that to Stan Lee. He wanted to tell more complex stories, but he also knew that older kids had more disposable cash. An older child had allowance money to freely spend whilst also being able to prod parents to buy comics. Younger kids could only beg their parents. Lee was possibly more of a marketer than he was a writer.

                      Dammit! When I was a teenager, and later, I started thinking of the DC heroes as gods. Their powers were generally on that level. Super beings who happened to be on Earth.

                      Marvel heroes always seemed to me to be regular people who just happened to have super powers. Much more interesting.
                      Also, I wanted to draw comics until I was about 20, and then I stopped drawing (I was pretty good at it) and went on to other things.

                      When comics were new, the colors ran terribly on the paper (which was very poor quality). And frankly, the art wasn't that great. the colorful costumes, trunks, and cape were so you could identify the hero. But of course, showing off muscle was a power fantasy for kids, and voluptuous women were appealing to a different need.

                      Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko...maybe a few others created a universe. at the time, it was just a cheap distraction for kids. It was nothing.

                      But it did more to shape our entertainment than Star Wars, Star Trek, or The Hobbit.

                      The Marvel movies are just about the most guaranteed entertainment out there.

    Riddle me this...who is funny as H? You guys!

    From the trailer it's Rated A - for ACTION. Big thumbs up for me.

    I really never get any deeper than that. But can be a bonus if it happens.

    There is a Channel on YouTube called "Matrix Explained"

    They talk, analyze, and theorize like it was actually real.

      From the trailer it's Rated A - for ACTION. Big thumbs up for me.

      What do you mean, of course it's real, how else could you explain Claude?

    The trailer looks good. Here's hoping there's some continuity and progression in story line going forward.

    Hello, this new Batman trailer is really good, I didn't expect it to be that good I have to play it because I played other parts, others were good too, but it looks nice on the trailer and in the game it is different, as it always is

    This trailer fascinates me and at the same time makes me shiver with impatience to see the film. I can understand how they changed Colin Farrell's appearance, but how did they change his voice?

    I guess anything looks good after months of no cinema?

      Agreed, how can anyone get excited about this or the Legion, (or whatever it is called) superhero, Mc, Motion picture, with a cliche ridden storyline of the well thrashed, aliens, get superpowers or humans and have to save the earth, since it saves heaps on production co,...makes it easier to film s.....).

      And no doubt it will be more than three bladder numbing hours, to get through in the cinema, (best to sneak out during the Captain America fight scenes)?
