Whereas longer movies are normally frowned upon, it’s easiest if they would possibly be able to not fetch the viewer’s consideration.

Farrell had praised the script of the movie whereas talking to the UK’s SFX magazine final yr, “I in actuality had been watching the Batman movies with my formative years, but this script is one thing that feels incredibly usual. It leans into it, then again it doesn’t borrow; it’s born of the mythology of that character, Bruce Wayne, Batman and Gotham. It feels adore a therapy and a version that I hadn’t viewed earlier than. Matt Reeves has performed a suitable-looking out job of keeping it acquainted and at the identical time irregular and unique. It’s genuinely bright to be a piece of it.”
Serkis has said the movie is a darker and broodier adaptation than earlier Batman movies. The Batman is scheduled to be released on March 4, 2022.
