The Batman – What Did You Think?!
Warning: the comment section of this post will have spoilers for The Batman! What
Ten years passed between The Dark Knight Rises and The Batman, and there were three Batmen in that time. Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, and now Robert Pattinson. Each of those three has their fans, and the debates won’t be ending any time soon. But this is a new era, and it’s time to hear what the Superhero Hype community thinks about The Batman! This post is a place for all of you to leave your own reviews, thoughts, or anything else you want to say about the new Batman reboot.
Director Matt Reeves set the film early in Batman’s career, but it’s not simply a rehash of Batman Begins. This is very much its own world, separate from both the Nolanverse and the Synderverse. In some ways, Gotham City feels more real in this film than it did in the earlier movies. The same could be said for Batman himself, since he’s less a figure of mystery here. If anything, Pattinson is more present as Batman than he is as Bruce Wayne.
Additionally, this is the first Batman movie since 1966 to feature four of his major villains. Although one of them only has a cameo, and Catwoman is more of a protagonist here. Penguin also has a relatively small role compared to Riddler. But putting them all in the same story teases a lot of possibilities for the future. And perhaps the inevitable sequel will continue to focus on Batman’s detective skills. And hopefully, Bruce Wayne will get some character development as well.
Judging from the comments in our review for the film, it looks like there are outspoken fans of this movie, as well viewers who aren’t enamored with it all. There aren’t many opinions that fall in the middle, and it’s sparking some passionate debate among the fanbase. This is why we’re starting over with this post so that all of you have the opportunity to share your opinions. So make sure to leave your The Batman reviews in the comment section below!
