Obviously saving the best for last, Warner Bros. and DC Comics closed out their massive DC FanDome event by unveiling the first look at The Batman.
Helmed by Matt Reeves, it’s been confirmed that The Batman will be taking place on a previously unseen New Earth within the DCEU multiverse, therefore standing alone, separate from Joaquin Phoenix’s Clown Prince of Crime in Joker, Ben Affleck’s Batman in Justice League and Michael Keaton’s Batman in The Flash.
Ahead of the reveal of the first trailer at 8:30 p.m. EST, Warner Bros. tweeted out official first-look images of Robert Pattinson as the legendary protector of Gotham City.

During today’s epic DC FanDome Event, DC Films President Walter Hamada said that director Matt Reeves has “innovative plans” to expand and flesh out his new corner of the DCEU multiverse.
The Batman — which stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/Riddler, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Jeffrey Wright as Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Peter Sarsgaard as Gotham District Attorney Gil Colson — is currently set to hit theaters in the United States on October 1, 2021.
