    Lol I’m gonna assume this is aimed at me. Sure, I’m exaggerating a bit, but “indicator” is a pretty good word to describe a trailer IMO. Why would a studio stop making billion dollar movies with billion dollar characters who are recognized worldwide? There hasn’t been a solo Batman movie for 10 years by the time this releases.

    The parents thing is definitely annoying and they shouldn't do it again but I'm mostly excited about this movie from the standpoint that it looks like a solid plot that hasn't been done yet in a Batman movie and the director/cast seem to be pretty inspired choices that I trust for the most part.

    I also think DC having multiple experimental interpretations of their characters is their strong suit (when done well obviously) and what they should be leaning into to at least for a few films to separate themselves from Marvel cause copying their style while it could've been cool has obviously not been working out well objectively.

    But DC has been known to put out good trailers for trash movies and the PTSD from the abusive relationship that is looking forward to DC movies hasn't gone away yet even after a few good movies in a row lol.

    Not directed at you, it seems like generally everyone was hyping thie movie based on the trailer. To me it looks like any standard superhero movie trailer, so I'd rather wait until the movie comes out. Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed every Batman movie that came out so far (minus the George Clooney and Val Kilmer ones) and even some of the "bad" DC movies, so I have no doubts that I'll like this but it's just funny to me how DC hits the reboot button so many times, especially with Batman

    DC is just a mess tbh. I have no idea where they wanna go with the DCEU, so I only enjoy the movies as standalone and closed stories and don't even worry about connections to other DC films. That s--- doesn't make any sense to me lmao. I agree tho, The Joker was an excellent movie, because it didn't have to conform to classic DCism and had a lot of liberties. I hope they can do the same with The Batman.

    Cinematography in the trailer alone looks insane.

    That’s Greig Fraser. He’s done Zero Dark Thirty, Rogue One, the new Dune, and won an Emmy award for his work on The Mandalorian.

    That's right. I was super excited when he signed on, especially because of how Rogue One looked. I'm not a Star Wars guy, but I thought that movie looked beautiful, more so than any other Star Wars film. Top to bottom this movie has elite levels of talent.

    Goodtime is the movie I use to try to put people on Pattinson since this casting happened. He really is one of the best working actors today.

    Just watched the trailer and sure it looks better than the Ben affleck ones but that's not really saying much. I'm not the hugest Batman fan so maybe it's just me? But I'm with anyone who's saying this won't come close to the dark knight films.

    trailer looks good. i'm excited. i love the dark look of Gotham.

    i also think paul dano is a fantastic casting for the riddler. first of all, he just looks the part. secondly, he's a very good actor who doesn't get enough recognition. a big, mainstream movie like this should get a lot more people familiar with him.

    Paul Dano in Prisoners was a unbelievably good performance

    I like the cast, trailers have been decent. Looking forward to it. Nolan’s trilogy was dope but you can’t watch this with his films in mind. Same thing when I first saw Batman Begins. I believed it would be a good film because Nolan was directing it but up until that point, Tim Burton’s Batman films were the best ones. I had to forget about his films to keep an open mind for what Nolan was presenting.
