There are a lot of exciting movies coming out in the next six months, particularly of the blockbuster variety. In October alone, we’ve got: The Many Saints of Newark, No Time To Die, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Dune, The French Dispatch, Halloween Kills, The Last Duel, and Last Night in Soho.
Then, to close out the year in November and December, we’ve got the likes of Eternals, The Harder They Fall, The Matrix: Resurrections, Nightmare Alley, King Richard, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, The King’s Man, West Side Story, and, of course, Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Of all the movies coming out over the course of the next six months, though, I’m easily the most excited for The Batman, Matt Reeves’ long-gestating Year Two story about the Dark Knight. Originally scheduled to hit theaters on June 25, 2021, The Batman suffered two release date delays due to COVID-19, having been bumped from June to October before finally landing on its current March 4, 2022 release date.
With The Batman now just less than half a year away, director Matt Reeves is hard at work editing the film, taking to Twitter on Batman Day to share a behind-the-scenes look at the Caped Crusader using his iconic grappling gun.
Wow, I have been away so long…! Just popping my head out of the editing room for a moment to say #HappyBatmanDay ! Can’t wait to share a lot more with you all four weeks from today at #DCFanDome ! (Sorry about the messy desk #LongHours) #TheBatman @TheBatman pic.twitter.com/ye0u1xQo65

In addition to the tease from Reeves, Michael Giacchino, the film’s composer, also took to Twitter to share a clip of the official score from The Batman:
