The Batman: Fandome/Final(?) Trailer (Potential Bat-Spoilers)


Recommended Posts

So, thoughts?

 

  • Dark. Liking the colour scheme and the look of Gotham.
  • DARK. Bats knows he's scary as all hell and uses it. Also: Invuln/SS Tanker.
  • DARRRRK... Riddler feels very Jigsaw, and is only shown obliquely in this trailer. 
  • DAYUM: I will be very hacked off if they fridge Zoe Kravitz, because yes. We like. We like very much.
  • DUDE? Farrell has had a massive transformation into the Penguin? (Makeup needs slightly better lighting though...)

I'm assuming if anyone is popping into this thread, they'll know the trailer spoilers are flying.  Why else would one be here?

 

I would not have realized it was Colin Ferrell.  The look is remarkable, and strangely disturbing because I feel I've seen that face before somewhere.

 

Even the coffee cup has a green stripe.  Nice touch.

 

Per IMDB, 4 villains (that we've been told), or perhaps 3 villains & 1 anti-hero/rogue.  This makes me think they'll not do a full take-down this picture, but will deal with one, maybe two, and set the stage for subsequent films. 

 

I'm hoping they've a very, very slow burn in mind for introducing the Joker to this new telling.  Batman's Rogues Gallery is the best in the business, and it's time to mine it's full depth. ( I'd love to finally have a proper, scary live-action Mr. Freeze or see Clock King brought to the franchise in full compulsive, precision psycho-genius mode. ) In fact, I think I'd rather have a cameo from Condiment King before yet another Joker appearance.

Get out of my mind.

Get busy living... or get busy dying.  That's goddamn right.

Calendar Man is (briefly) in James Gunn's Suicide Squad, and a key part of the Long Halloween animated movie.

 

It'd need a really good script, but if they're going for the full horror vibe: a Raimi-inspired (or Raimi-directed) Dollmaker would scare all hell outa me.

And as a lesser-known villain, they'd have more room to play with it.

  • ThaOGDreamWeaver changed the title to The Batman: Fandome/Final(?) Trailer (Potential Bat-Spoilers)

My thoughts on how dark this Gotham seems to be, there is a distinct feeling of menace coming from every direction. 

This Batman seems to be the unleashed vengeance, one from the dark multiverse. A almost wanting to go back or looking to the horizon on alot of those scenes staring at the sunset/sunrise(?), reminded me of Lord Soth pacing the ramparts searching for his lost love and the twisted anguish from it.

Farrell Penguin seems like a villain out of Dick Tracy with a DeNiro mob swagger, does he replace Falcone and if so how does this affect Catwoman?

The Riddler...well that one is a riddle a serial killer or a criminally insane mastermind?

The Joker horde, well thats interesting has Joker been caught already and this is his gang or fan boys? Or is he a urban legend like slender man and these are murderous groupies?

 

Personally, I love the dark vengeance filled Batman, Keatons was too cartoony, Batfleck tried too hard, and Bales didn't go far enough. The rest sucked so much I'm not going to respond on them.

 

Now all that being said, I would love to see the Scarecrow in this world. Now that would be dark and scary asf.

I've been holding back one I'd dearly love to see:  Bookworm.  Pretty sure he's only been in the '66 Adam West series, so a very campy version, but I can see great potential of a Bookworm reinvented as a information junkie with photographic memory, scanning fantastic amounts of webpages and e-books, and with a mind capable of collating all sorts of minutia collected from his readings into master plans. As a result he's a master hacker, blackmailer, and manipulator on a Big Brother scale.  I only wish Roddy McDowell was still alive to play this serious version of him.

I forgot to note one rumor floating around which is, at some point expect to see the Court of Owls.  If so, this will mark their first live action appearance.  I'd expect it would likely be a cameo, perhaps of the Court taking notice of Batman for the first time, setting yet another stage for another movie.   And if this all is true, having the Gotham Knights video game come out, with it's focus on the Court might help bring awareness of this group to a wider audience.

I approve of the muscle car bat mobile.  Maybe I can fast-forward through the parts were Pattinson has the mask off, so that I can forget it's Pattinson under the mask.

 

Maybe.

 

Why didn't we get to see the Riddler?  Or was that guy with messed up face supposed to be him?

I was actually a huge fan of the introduction of the court of owls in the mid-2010s run of Batman. It was a satisfying new take on not just a Batman villain group, but one that had so much history in Gotham and could be plausibly believed to have such power. My appreciation for Batman content goes:

 

Comics (when he's not fighting an interdimensional god, like seriously these are the worst issues)

 

Animated Series and animated films (Kevin Conroy is the voice of Batman!! And Mark Hamill is the Joker voice - this is not up for debate)

 

Video Games (Arkham series, but there have been a lot of duds/stinkers)

 

Live Action version (Films have been hit and miss. I hated that they made Batman such a focus in the CW Gotham show, I would've loved to have just watched a series about Detective Gordon as he rose up through the ranks)

Not to "actually" you or (Bat-ctually?) but the Court of Owls showed up in Gotham season 3 and were effectively creepy, led by veteran character actor Ray Barry...
https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/GothamCourtOfOwls

Spoiler

...and were responsible for the deaths of Thomas and Martha Wayne in that continuity. However, they got fridged pretty quickly, per TVTropes: The showrunners admit in the season 3 DVD extras that the whole reason for having them killed off so suddenly is to make Ra's Al-Ghul look more impressive on his arrival in Gotham.

 

Side note... not sure why there's bad Bat-titude about Gotham generally. It took the key characters and quite a few deep cut ones too, and used the whole thing as a sandbox to tell new and different stories. Plus loved Shaun Pertwee as ass-kicking Alfred, Mazouz and Bicondova held their roles well and should have a great future...

 

...and when I think of the Penguin these days, it's not DeVito, Paul Williams or even the great Burgess Meredith. Robin Lord Taylor's Oswald Cobblepot was a fully-fledged character with depth, bathos, sympathy, multiple great arcs, and even a degree of charm.

I think they're going for a very slow-burn reveal of the Riddler.

 

Slightly spoilery stuff ahoy:

Spoiler

From reading previous articles about this, they've basically written a serial-killer movie using the Batman universe as their toybox. 

 

Paul Dano is wearing a heavy and somewhat kinky mask in the publicity shots that have been let loose so far - again, much more Jigsaw than a Carrey-type grinning lunatic.

https://www.theguardian.com/film/2021/may/21/paul-dano-the-riddler-the-batman

As one Twitter correspondent notes, there's a similarity to the Zodiac Killer's somewhat childish sketches of himself - which does make sense as a reference.

OK, so here are my thoughts:

 

1. I am so not interested in another Batman movie.  It may turn out to be good, but good luck following the Dark Knight trilogy.

 

2. I almost feel that Batman is DCs crutch.  When in doubt, break out another Batman movie.  Of all the DC heroes, DC usually does Batman the best (with exceptions of course).

 

I think the movie will be pretty good actually, and I am a fan of Batman (fav male superhero), but I'm not interested in this right now.

Thank you for that correction.  I only saw part of season 1 of Gotham, so clearly I missed that.
