Well let’s just come out and say it. Dc has struggled with its movies and more importantly their main heroes aka Superman and Batman. There was something always missing, like what Robert Downey Jr. did with Iron Man nobody could do with these heroes at least in the shared universe. Honestly Henry Cavill, Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh and Tom Welling did do a pretty decent job. But there impact somehow didn’t reach the heights it was supposed to.But Batman was messy from the start. It is so bad that nobody in the whole fandom even wants to acknowledge the 1997 movie Batman and Robin. We don’t even have a strong presence of it in the small screen. The one franchise that had an astounding Batman in the form of Christian Bale didn’t enter the shared universe because of various reasons.
In the last 2 years DC has slowly and steadily improved in its treatment of the heroes in their universe. Arrowverse, Wonderwoman and Aquaman are huge case in point. Therefore it can be expected that we can expect better iterations of our favourite heroes.
After the intense backlash because of Ben Affleck’s appointment as Batman, and the poor performance of Justice League. Matt Reeves took the reins of the upcoming Batman movie and Robert Pattinson took on the role of the caped crusader.
Along with them the movie will also star Zoe Kravitz (Selina Kyle/Catwoman), Jeffrey Wright (Jim Gordon), and Paul Dano (The Riddler) in the main roles.

According to Reeves social media Production on Warner Brothers’ The Batman has officially started. Thus, multiple sightings that led to the conclusion that Colin Farrell will become the iconic Penguin in this movie was in all probability rehearsals.
The story will focus on a younger Batman and emphasize the detective aspect of the character to a greater extent than previous films
“It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale,” the filmmaker said in a previous interview. “It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that.”
