The footage gives us an eerie, almost horror film look into the film as Paul Dano’s The Riddler orchestrates an attack on the church funeral with a runaway car rampaging through it. It also features Jeffrey Wright’s James Gordon (our beloved future Police Commissioner) and Peter Sarsgaard who plays Gotham City District Attorney Gil Colson.
Watching this footage will really give you a feel for what the film is going to be like. It also makes us more excited about how it will all turn out.
The film itself takes some inspiration from the Batman Year One comic book. This is shaping to be the longest feature film of The Dark Knight. Clocking in at two hours and fifty-five minutes or almost three hours.
The Batman by Director Matt Reeves is set to be released this March at your nearest cinema.
