Robert Pattinson was unveiled as the titular hero of Gotham city in The Batman teaser trailer released last Saturday. The teaser trailer brings a very unique take on the dark knight into the limelight. It seems to be a very raw and human depiction of a complicated character unlike anything we have seen before in the franchise.

We can see many reappearing characters in the trailer such as James Gordon, played by Jeffrey Wright, who is seen inspecting a grim crime scene, or Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman seen fighting the Batman, and even Andy Serkis’ Alfred can be heard off-screen while a very fragile looking Robert Pattinson is seen staring into his mask.
The movie starts just two years into Bruce Wayne’s foray into crime fighting as can be surmised by a group of perplexed and uncomfortable thugs who ask the batman who he is supposed to be, which naturally results in a beating with our hero growling “I’m vengeance”. The same is true for beloved villains such as The Riddler and The Penguin who also seem to be just starting out.
