This weekend, several trailers were dropped for the upcoming installments in the DC Extended universe. People on twitter certainly were excited, though I have to admit that, with the exception of Wonder Woman, I’ve never cared much about the DC films.
Then again, that could change. To be honest, I haven’t been that enthusiastic for the new MCU films. I’m even kind of dreading Black Widow because the way the character was killed off in Infinity War still bothers me. Speaking of which, with the exception of killing off Natasha, I loved Infinity War but I have to admit that it kind of felt almost like to perfect an ending for the entire MCU. All the films that follow will be in its shadow. Meanwhile, the DC films are still finding themselves and that could potentially be interesting to watch. Or not. We all remember Man of Steel.
Then again — and yes, I know, I’m indecisive — it’s hard for me to get excited for yet another Batman film. “This Batman is dark and serious!” Oh, you mean as opposed to all the other recent Batman films? Y’know why people loved LEGO Batman? Because it was willing to poke fun at itself and the character.
Anyway, here’s the trailer for The Batman, with Robert Pattinson in the lead role. I think Robert Pattinson is an excellent actor who has more than proven that he deserves to be known for more than just playing Edward Cullen. For the record, though this is a DC film, it’s apparently not considered to be a part of the DCEU. So, I guess maybe it’s taking place in the same cinematic universe as Joker.
(Seriously, it’s kind of hard to keep all these universes straight….)
