‘ The Batman ‘ continues to top the list of the most anticipated releases of 2021. Let’s see, maybe not leading it, but it certainly is in the top 5 of most anticipated releases. Seeing Robert Pattinson playing Bruce Wayne is something we are all looking forward to seeing.
Some criticize him, others out of curiosity, and some others because they are just looking forward to seeing Batman in action again.
The film will hit screens around the world in October 2021 and the cast is quite promising. Not only Robert Pattinson, but also Colin Farrell, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, and Andy Serkis.
The latter will play the butler Alfred and, according to Serkis, the relationship between him and Bruce Wayne will be one of the central motifs of the film.”A lot will revolve around the emotional connection between Alfred and Bruce. It is the focal point of the film.
And Matt has written a really exquisite script.”But not only that, but Andy Serkis has wanted to go a little further, making it clear that ‘The Batman’ will have a darker tone than usual.
Matt Reeves is the director in charge of bringing the production to a successful conclusion, and one of the comics he has taken as a reference is ‘ The Long Halloween ‘, one of the stories with the best reviews in the history of the Dark Knight, and which has all the elements to become a success on the big screen.
There is no Batman without Alfred Pennyworth. After the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne, Alfred became the legal guardian of Bruce; Pyare Butler is Safar’s friend and surrogate father’s best friend.
Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy did the acclaimed work of balancing Alfred’s role as a housekeeper and confidant and some would argue that Caine is the heart of those films.
Reeves and Serkis aim to take the emotional resonance of Bruce and Alfred’s relationship one step further; If The Batman is as dark as everyone else, then the Capped Crusaders will need moral support.
