The cast of The Batman
There was almost a popular uprising when Robert Pattinson’s name was announced. The actor, who achieved fame especially among the teen audience with the saga of Twilight, in ten years he has carved out a career that is anything but commercial. Pattinson made very careful choices that led him to independent and authorial films and for many fans it was difficult (and still is) to imagine him in the role of Bruce Wayne, even more so after the mighty Ben Affleck and the highly appreciated Christian Bale. The story written by Matt Reeves revolves around a younger Batman, a role for which they were also considered Jack Reynor, Alexander Ludwig, Jack O’Connell, Aaron Taylor-Johnson e Armie Hammer. In the end they stayed Nicholas Hoult e Robert pattinson and it is the latter that has managed to win. The cast of The Batman is completed (for the moment, pending further revelations) with Andy Serkis in the role of trusty butler Alfred Pennyworth e Jeffrey Wright in that of Commissioner Gordon, while on the front of the opponents Zoë Kravitz plays Catwoman, Paul Dano is the Riddler, Colin Farrell is none other than the Penguin and John Turturro the mafia member Carmine Falcone. There are also Peter Sarsgaard and the almost novice Jayme Lawson, both in parts not yet specified.
Robert Pattinson’s first video in the Batman costume
On February 13 the director Matt Reeves posted a video test on his Vimeo account in which for the first time it shows Robert pattinson in new Batman costume. It is a costume rehearsal that the director has made particularly suggestive with a turn to the red of the image and a music of tension to accompany the movement of the camera.
Filming of The Batman
In mid-January 2020 The Batman appeared to be filming in the city of London. Some amateur shots taken with a smartphone appeared on the web showing what it appeared to be Pattinson riding a motorcycle, but more likely it was his stunt double. There was also talk of scenographic elements and a funeral arrangement and this suggested that the story predicted the death of a character. If those photos circulated had actually been the set of the film, they could not have been other than scenes of setting or connection shot by the second unit, because on January 27 the regista Matt Reeves posted the photo of the first take of The Batman complete with hashtag #DayOne. We know that this is scene 17, so relatively at the beginning of the story, but we don’t know which actors were involved or in what environment.

Le Location di The Batman
Many interior scenes, such as the Bat Cave, will be recreated by the set designer James Chinlund in Shepperton Studios, Pinewood Studios or more likely Leavesden Studios which are owned by Warner Bros (where theHarry Potter Tour to be clear), three structures located on the outskirts of London. The capital of England itself appears to be taken into consideration for shooting some outdoor scenes, but it is a Scottish city that acts as a real stunt double to Bruce Wayne’s metropolis. Glasgow is the city that will become Gotham City and here we will see some eventful sequences with Batman in pursuit of the villains. Victorian architecture with Gothic overtones of Glasgow it integrates perfectly with the aesthetics of modern buildings and is second Matt Reeves and the set designer Chinlund, the ideal Gotham for the new Batman.
The story: plot of The Batman
There are no official communications about it, but there are a couple of certainties. Written by the director Matt Reeves together with the screenwriter Mattson Tomlin, The Batman is not an origin story and the entire narrative system will be declined as a thriller, a detective story in which Bruce Wayne / Batman will presumably carry out the investigations assisted by Commissioner Gordon. There is also talk of six villains, although at the moment there are four (as described in the paragraph on casting). Another voice from the director Kevin Smith, who is not part of the project but is always well informed about cinecomic, indicates the mini comic series Batman: The Long Halloween as the main source of inspiration. Set during the superhero’s first year of activity, the books of the mini series narrate the search for the mysterious assassin Festa (named in this way because he only kills during the holidays) by Batman, Gordon e Harvey Dent, as well as recounting the events leading to the birth of Two faces and Gotham City’s fight against organized crime. Batman: The long Halloween it also inspired the first half of the fourth season of the series Gotham.
The Batman soundtrack
Matt Reeves he directed in the past Cloverfield, let me in and two chapters of the de The Planet of the Apes. There has always been a column in those films Michael Giacchino, winner of an Oscar for the music of Up, and it was assumed that the collaboration between them would also continue for The Batman. Giacchino therefore he will compose the score of The Batman thus becoming the successor of other illustrious colleagues who have worked over the years on the films dedicated to the Dark Knight, such as Danny Elfman per Batman of Tim Burton, James Newton Howard e Hans Zimmer for the trilogy of Christopher Nolan.
