A couple of new videos from the set of The Batman have surfaced and they feature The Dark Knight on top of the Royal Liver Building in Liverpool. He’s making some Batman poses with his cape spread out and at one point it looks like he lifts off the ground like he’s going to fly off the structure, but he doesn’t. Check out the videos below.

The Batman will tell a dark noir-style film that will lean into Batman in his detective mode. Director Matt Reeves said that it’s going to tell a deep and psychological story. This will be a “year two” story for Batman that acknowledges his origin and how it’s still something that he’s “majorly struggling” with.
There will be a series of murders and crimes that start taking place in Gotham and as Batman investigates those things, they begin to reveal the darkness of Gotham City to him.
The film stars Robert Pattinson as The Dark Knight, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Andy Serkis as Alfred, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, and Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson. Gil Perez-Abraham (Orange is the New Black), Charlie Carver (Teen Wolf), and Max Carver have also been cast in undisclosed roles.
The Batman is now scheduled to hit theaters on March 4th, 2022. I hate that we have to wait that long! Hopefully, it’s worth it.
