The Batman teaser trailer released during DC FanDome

A first look at Matt Reeves’ interpretation of DC’s most famous character has been shared, with a teaser for The Batman released online.

This weekend sees DC FanDome offering a virtual event, where fans of the comic book universe can see what’s coming up in future comic books, movies and video games. Due for release October 2021, The Batman will see the Dark Knight in the early years of his career, figuring out his formula for preventing crime in Gotham.

Robert Pattinson is donning the cape and cowl, joined in the cast by Paul Dano as Riddler, Colin Farrell as Penguin, Zoë Kravitz’ as Catwoman and Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon.

In the trailer, fans get a glimpse of what looks to be a dark detective story, with the seedy side of Gotham City seemingly ready for exploration.

Given that Batman is the character most frequently visited in the LEGO DC Comics theme, it’s almost certain that fans will be able to get a selection of products based on the upcoming film. Three new sets recently launched based on the character – 76158 Batboat The Penguin Pursuit! (review), 76159 Joker’s Trike Chase and 76160 Mobile Bat Base (review).
