The Batman trailer was released to critical acclaim and we don’t blame anyone for thinking that way since it rocked. Everything in the trailer that was shown looks so compelling, whether it’s Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne and Batman, that intense beatdown he gave a thug, or the compelling way that The Riddler has been shown thus far, it’s also good stuff. Jeffrey Wright, who will be playing Jim Gorgon in the movie, brought up another great thing about the trailer; no CGI.
Speaking with SXM, Wright mentioned how he didn’t see any noticeable CGI during the trailer of The Batman. While some might point out that car crash, there’s a very good chance that was a legit bit with stunt drivers and all that. Personally, I’m kind of hoping that bit was CGI but if it wasn’t, bravo to them. Hopefully, stuntmen and stuntwomen don’t have to do anything too dangerous like that.
Considering how this movie seems to be going for a more noir/pulp-inspired tale, we wouldn’t be too surprised if the use of CGI ends up being very minimal. Batman is the kind of hero that does not need to have a lot of that, as the Christopher Nolan films have shown, so this is going to be very interesting, to say the least.
Having a bit of realism and a comic book-inspired costume has resulted in a lot of praise for The Batman. Fans are already forgetting about Pattinson being in Twilight, though they would have done that sooner if they checked out his other films. We’re happy that things are looking good for the movie so here’s hoping it does well next year.
The Batman is currently scheduled for an October 1, 2021 release.
