Batman has undergone many evolutions in his 80-plus-year history. The character made its comic book debut in 1939, then led its own famous TV show starring Adam West in the ‘60s and became an animated mainstay as well. Through the decades, film audiences have seen many actors take their turn playing the serious, crime fighting vigilante, including West, Michael Keaton, George Clooney, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck. Now it’s Robert Pattinson’s turn to defend Gotham.
The Batman starring Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz (as Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman) is now in theaters. Running at 2 hours and 55 minutes, the movie is almost double the length of its original and said to be one of the longest superhero movies, comparable to Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame, so go light on the slushies if you plan on seeing it this weekend. With a dark, thrilling trailer that has us on the edge of our seats, and a soundtrack sure to keep us on Shazam, we have high hopes for the new era of Batman.
This time around, the caped crusader is facing off against The Riddler (Paul Dano) a terrorist-like serial killer with an affinity for explosives. As Bruce Wayne strives to save the city, he finds an ally in Kravitz’s Catwoman. At the same time, he delves deeper into his own psyche, and questions whether his way of fighting crime helps or hurts the city he is striving to protect. As we learned in The Dark Knight, you either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
Where can I stream The Batman yet?
For those of us who have enjoyed the pandemic-induced home movie debuts, we may have to wait a little longer to see the action from our couches. With the world opening back up, films are returning to their traditional theater releases, and The Batman is no exception. The film is expected to be available on HBO Max on April 19, 2022, exactly 46 days after it hits cinemas. While WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar previously hinted that The Batman would begin streaming “on day 46,” the streamer and Warner Bros. have not confirmed the date yet. Either way, this spring is definitely feeling a little batty, and we’re here for it.
