The long-awaited new trailer for Matt Reeves’ The Batman starring Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne finally dropped during DC FanDome. Along with the exciting teases at some of the action sequences and character drama, we got our first official look at Andy Serkis as Batman’s beloved butler, Alfred Pennyworth.
You can check out the first look at Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth in The Batman down below:
Andy Serkis reunites with writer/director Matt Reeves, having worked with him on both Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes. He previously expressed his belief that Matt Reeves will deliver the goods on this new film. He is the latest actor to step into the role of Alfred Pennyworth on the big screen, following the likes of Alan Napier, Michael Gough, Michael Caine, Jeremy Irons and Douglas Hodge.
The plot of The Batman is being kept under lock and key, but we know the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger version of Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as the Dark Knight of Gotham City. The film will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the hero. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films with Pattinson.
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
The Batman will hit theaters on March 4, 2022. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news regarding the upcoming DC film, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content.
