As one of 2021’s biggest blockbusters and our most anticipated film of the year, there’s a hell of a lot of excitement brewing for The Batman. Now in a special treat, the film’s director Matt Reeves has offered up audiences a fresh look at the film with a new scene that bears significant importance to the film’s narrative.
Watch the brand new clip for The Batman below:
Dubbed ‘The Funeral Scene’ audiences see a disconnected and reclusive Bruce Wayne (Robert Pattinson) who in a rear public appearance makes an outing to pay his respects to a murdered city official. While in the church, Wayne sees the dead man’s son and experiences a moment of pain and past remorse at his parents own passing. We also see him eavesdrop on a conversation between Detective Luitenant James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) and the chief of the Gotham City Police before a frantic and crazed assault is brought on the church by The Riddler and Wayne jumps into action.
It’s a hell of a scene and illustrates the grandeur of Reeves storytelling and his attention to detail. Watching the action unfold I felt as if I was watching a scene from The Godfather, and this ties directly back to Reeves desire to craft a story that feels very different from the typical comic book narrative.
Alongside this new first look clip from The Batman, we also have the first official taste of composer Michael Giacchino’s score for The Batman. The aptly named title track will serve as the chief motive and score for the film’;s central character and it is a score that packs together ideas of haunting sorrow and pain, alongside rousing heroism and epicness. It’s a perfect touch for the film and crafts a mood for something completely different and audiences will be ready for something wild here.
Here’s the official synopsis:
During his second year of fighting crime, Batman pursues the Riddler, a serial killer who targets elite Gotham City citizens. He uncovers corruption that connects to his own family during the investigation, and is forced to make new allies to catch the Riddler and bring the corrupt to justice.
The Batman is far and away my most anticipated film of 2021 and I’m extremely excited to see it unfold here. The action looks intense, the drama haunting and star Robert Pattinson is ready to make the Dark Knight his own when The Batman arrives in cinemas on March 3.
