Warner Bros. Pictures on Monday 27th December released a second trailer for their upcoming superhero film, The Batman, and the new trailer has caught the eye of anticipating fans, revealing how star casts Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz take to their respective roles of Batman and Catwoman.
We’ve seen Halle Berry, Michelle Pfieffer, Anne Hathaway, and Eartha Kitt give us their take on Catwoman over the years, but now, it’s Zoë Kravitz’s turn. The Batman will hit theatres in March 2022, and is directed by Matt Reeves, who’s best known for his work on Cloverfield and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Paul Dano, Colin Farell, Jeffrey Wright, Andy Serkis, and John Turturro will all appear alongside Pattinson and Kravitz, among others.
The new trailer, subtitled The Bat and The Cat sees Pattison’s Batman take on Dano’s Riddler in Gotham City. As Complex notes, the legacy of Bruce Wayne’s family appears to be the main plot mystery of the forthcoming film, with vengeance and quest for justice a major driver of Batman and Catwoman.
While preparing for her role, Kravitz revealed to Empire in a recent interview that she had a lot of physically demanding work to do. “We watched cats and lions and how they fight, and we talked about what is actually possible when you’re my size, and Batman’s so much stronger than me.”
“What is my skill? It’s being fast and tricky. So we did some really interesting floor work that incorporated different kinds of martial arts and capoeira and a kind of feline, dance-like movement.”
Of course, Batman is the central character of the movie, but viewers are already enamoured by the High Fidelity star’s sultry portrayal of her character, with some even saying that she “outshines” Pattinson in his starring role.
The Batman will arrive in theatres near you on March 4th, 2022. Keep your eyes on this one.
