The Batman Trailer Reactions

The first trailer for The Batman debuted during DC FanDome last weekend, and the response was overwhelmingly positive for the vision director Matt Reeves has put forth so far. It’s dark, but also unlike any of the other Batman movies that came before. There’s a noir realism to the proceedings reminiscent of David Fincher, and two of Batman’s biggest fans have given their seal of approval. Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder and The Dark Knight aficionado Kevin Smith both had very favorable reactions to our first glimpse at The Batman, and you can read what they had to say below.

the batman trailer breakdown

The Batman trailer arrived during DC FanDome, and it did not disappoint. Even though Matt Reeves and company only shot a small portion of the film before having to shut down production due to coronavirus, the filmmaker was still able to cut together a solid, atmospheric look at the latest take on the Dark Knight. It has the trappings we’d expect from a Batman flick: it’s moody, it’s gothic, it has lots of scenes of people standing in the rain. But it also looks different. Grungier. Scarier. It almost looks like a remake of Seven (or Se7en, if you want to be a jerk about it) that just happens to feature Batman. So let’s dive into the footage and see what’s going on here, shall we?

Matt Reeves flew the virtual Batwing out of the virtual Batcave into the virtual DC FanDome to tell us all about The Batman, and he did not disappoint. Director Reeves talked about the film and gave us a seriously great trailer to boot, and pretty much everything the director had to say was gold. Reeves’ infectious attitude about the project goes a long way to shutting down any cynicism someone might have about yet another Batman movie.

Ahead of the DC FanDome, which is sure to provide us with footage, Matt Reeves has revealed The Batman logo along with some cool concept art created by none other than Jim Lee. As far as logos go, it’s more or less what you’d expect – a bat signal, although it’s rougher around the edges than traditional bat logos of the past. Check it out below.

Away Trailer

Being an astronaut isn’t easy, and that job is made all the more difficult when there are missions taking these space explorers away from their family for extended periods of time. In Netflix’s new drama series Away, a mission to Mars will take an international group of astronauts away from their families for three years. For Emma Green (Hilary Swank), it might just be too much to handle as she struggles with leaving behind her family and staying strong as the commander of the mission. Read More »
