Mysterious riddles

While this trailer is light on Riddler-related activities compared to the first, it’s still clear that he’s the film’s central threat. It appears as if he’ll end up captured while his schemes continue to unfold. As hinted at by the mural on the ground (and taken in conjunction with footage from teaser number one), the Riddler’s riddles seem to involve the sins of Bruce’s father, Thomas Wayne, in part of a larger conspiracy taking place in Gotham. Reeves has said he’s aiming to make The Batman more of a Chinatown-style film-noir than an outright superhero movie.

To Live and Die in Gotham City

Reeves has also described The Batman as a “Year Two” story, wherein the film doesn’t chronicle Bruce’s first time putting on the cape (so, thankfully not a Batman Begins retread) but he is still learning how to be Batman. As such, this version of Bruce isn’t anywhere close to the “hero Gotham deserves.” In fact, Bruce isn’t giving much thought to whether or not he will even live or die. Additionally, there’s a sense of brutality to the way he carries himself, beating a criminal so viciously it causes Selina to recoil. The fear element seems to be all Bruce is obsessed with, as underlined by the line of dialog the clip opens with: that he views the Bat signal as more of a warning than anything else. It seems as if Bruce’s internal struggle in the film will be deciding (or learning?) just how he wants to carry himself as Batman.

Odds and Ends

A few other brief glimpses are worth a quick mention. After hearing him in the initial teaser, we’re given our first look at Andy Serkis’ take on Alfred, who, in typical fashion, is deeply concerned about the unhealthy coping mechanisms his young charge is taking. And Colin Farrell seems to be having an absolute blast as Oswald Cobblepot / The Penguin. Dano’s Riddler might be the villain driving the central plot, but it’s easy to see Farrell stealing the show when it’s said and done. (His character is likely working alongside John Turturro’s still unseen Carmine Falcone.

Oh, you’ll also notice the repeated motif of Nirvana’s “Something in the Way” before Michael Giacchino’s score emerges. You can get another listen to that bit of score, courtesy of this Twitter post from back in September where Giacchino teased the movie’s theme.

Gotham by Gaslight

This is a silly thing to get excited about, but stick with me here: I love how this movie looks. It’s nice to see vibrant colors in a Batman movie again. While nothing here comes close to the production design of the Burton movies, The Batman features several shots of characters at sunrise and sunset. The rich apricot hue makes for a nice thematic touch that further acknowledges Gotham as a “powder keg” waiting to explode.

Overall, the look of Reeves’ Gotham feels more crowded and claustrophobic than the latter Nolan movies, thanks in part to framing; everything is either in close-ups or features characters surrounded by massive industrial landscapes. This micro and macro scope just makes The Batman stand out differently from what’s come before. Oh, and the last shot in the trailer of Batman looking like he’s hanging upside down?Great stuff.
