If you like collecting companion books, then The Art of The Batman by James Field is for you. It’s not released until 15 March 2022 and the publisher Abrams Books describes the 224 page book as follows:

The official behind-the-scenes companion book to Matt Reeves’s The Batman

The Art of The Batman is the official behind-the-scenes illustrated tie-in book to the highly-anticipated Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, War for the Planet of the Apes) film, coming to theaters March 4, 2022. Set during Batman’s second year as a crime fighter, this unique, noir-inspired take on the Dark Knight serves as a return to the character’s roots and stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, and Colin Farrell as The Penguin. Readers will get an insider’s look at the film’s production process through character designs, vehicle and gadget designs, and background paintings, alongside original commentary and interviews from the filmmakers, cast, production designer, and conceptual artists.

The publisher link above provides links for preorder as well as all booksellers for the title in the US.

He really does look familiar. Rob was spotted at Warner Bros Studios with Matt Reeves. If the Adidas, backpack and water bottle don’t give him away the wonky feet do lol.

Batman on Film talk about Batman (for us novices) and Rob post featurette at Cinemacon. Great discussion.

25 AUGUST 2021: Although the footage has not been released to the public, here is what some of the attendees at Cinemacon have said about new footage and comments from Rob and Matt Reeves for The Batman:


While the footage has not been released to the public,’s Brandon Davis attended the event, and you can check out his description, including new quotes from star Robert Pattinson and director Matt Reeves, below.

“Bruce Wayne walks to ominous piano music. ‘For some reason, Batman has always stood to as one of the major characters of the 20th century,’ Pattinson says. We see him in the cowl, removing it. He says it is ‘radically different’ from other Batman movies. Reeves says we haven’t seen anything ‘grounding it the way Year One does.’ It’s not an origin story, but it is Batman in his early days. Footage shows Batman beating up goons, set in red light. Explosions, police officers, and dark chaos. ‘He’s really working out this rage,’ Pattinson said. ‘All the fights seem very personal.’ He uses various weapons to beat down enemies. A shot shows Andy Serkis as Alfred. The Batmobile drives, with flames coming from its exhaust. ‘We can’t wait for you to see The Batman in theaters, next year,’ Reeves says.” [My emphasis]

From The Wrap:

The featurette, followed by the DC Fandome trailer released last year, opened with what looks like chaos, with Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne walking through Gotham. From there, he rises, and we hear Reeves promise an “emotional Batman movie” that we’ve never seen before. He also said it’s going to be “radically different” from any other Batman movie we’ve seen before.

Pattison also talked about how so many people have connected to the Batman character, and about how the film is a passion project for Reeves. … Reeves has described his film as a “defining” and “very personal” story about the Dark Knight, rather than an origin story in the vein of Frank Miller’s beloved “Year One” series.

Some people have been fortunate enough to attend a test screening for Rob’s The Batman – 3 hours long – yes please. Although screeners tend to be longer than what is eventually released. We can handle 3 hours of Rob as Batman though – just saying. Here’s reactions from social media:

When rumours first started circulating in February 2019 about Rob being in the running to portray Batman there were a lot of cynics (even in the fandom) who just didn’t or couldn’t believe Rob would leave his indie world behind to front the face of another franchise. Yet here we are in 2021 waiting patiently for the release of the first film. I thought I would do a roundup of Rob talking about why he pursued the role, what drew him to it and what he’s hoping to achieve. Here’s what Rob has had to say thus far:

VARIETY – 3 September 2019 (watch HERE at 2.51):

“What About ‘The Batman’ with Matt Reeves?”

“I really like Matt Reeves and his set up for it. I mean, it’s an interesting direction and it’s something from the comics which hasn’t been really explored yet. Yeah it’s kind of crazy shoes to fill. I mean it’s interesting what the different directions he can take with it and the kind of fit in a somewhat quite specific character – there’s actually quite a lot of leeway I mean when you look at all the different tones of all those movies and the TV shows. You can do quite a lot with it.

Yeah, Batman was really the only kind of superhero who I really had any kind of connection with when I was growing up and really from the Tim Burton ones I was just kind of obsessed when I was a kid. I don’t know it’s very very daunting. It’s weird I’m quite glad I’m doing Chris’s movie right now so I’ve got something else to be nervous about as I don’t have quite enough anxiety space in my head to really get too anxious about it yet. So I’m kind of quite happily just like figuring out how to do things without really thinking about the pressure yet.

Where were you when you learned you were going to be cast as the next Batman?

I think my first day with Chris Nolan which is pretty insane.

NYTIMES (Kyle Buchanan – 19 October 2019 (PRINT Here)

You were saying earlier that we should be skeptical of any actor who wants to play the hero, and yet here you are playing Batman.
Batman’s not a hero, though. He’s a complicated character. I don’t think I could ever play a real hero — there’s always got to be something a little bit wrong. I think it’s because one of my eyes is smaller than the other one.

What is it about Batman that excites you?
I love the director, Matt Reeves, and it’s a dope character. His morality is a little bit off. He’s not the golden boy, unlike almost every other comic-book character. There is a simplicity to his worldview, but where it sits is strange, which allows you to have more scope with the character.

BBC ARABIC NEWS – 22 October 2019 (watch HERE)

Why have you shifted back to big budget films?

Batman was kind of a surprise to me. Now that I’m starting to get into it, I don’t want to approach it as if it’s that kind of a big studio thing … I want to approach it in exactly the same way, I want it to be frightening – something which you lose yourself in. I think it’s more difficult to do because it’s such a familiar character to lots of people but I think, if you can find a place to lose yourself in it then I think it’s really exciting.

INQUIRER (Ruben V Naples – 25 October 2019 (PRINT Here)

And for a part in which your face is basically covered, there is something quite simple about the character in lots of ways. But to see the scope of how many different people have interpreted it, it could be put into so many different genres—it can be played for laughs, for anything. I thought Christian’s idea was absolutely brilliant. I’ve got a little idea of it (his take of Batman), but we’ll see how it works.


JLo: … Now you’re about to play Batman was it a choice to kind of move away from [large studio films] for awhile and why Batman were you ready to get back into that big thing again?

… Even my agents were like, I was very very focused on it I don’t know why I kind of just kept coming back into my head. It’s probably like 2 years ago, and even my agent was like really?

JL: You wanted to do Batman so you sought out the part – oh I didn’t know that?

Yeah. Well not sought it out directly but I was interested in it. … I knew they were doing another one and it just really appealed to me and there’s just something – there was definitely – I don’t know what is that happened inside me but I kind of want to do – it’s a different feeling when you know there’s an audience who has – there’s anticipation from an audience that’s already there and it’s a different kind of pressure. I like doing something which an audience doesn’t know that it wants and try to get it out to them. And that’s a whole different thing, but there’s a competitive side as well when you just know that everyone’s kind of going “oh yeah you wanna play Batman”. And it’s kind of fun. The challenge of it is kind of interesting. … Whenever I see the little action figure or something I still haven’t got my head around it yet. …

JLO: I think you’re going to be an awesome Batman, because he’s a dark character …

I have no interest whatsoever in playing someone who is heroic. The only time I want to play someone who an audience knows they’re supposed to like is when they really shouldn’t like them. … He’s a very very troubled person – there’s very few of sort of a character who is regarded by everyone as a heroic character, most of them know that they need to save the day, that they’re saving the world and they know they’re good, and I always found it interesting that Batman he’s always struggling a little bit especially in some iterations of the story and he doesn’t know if he’s that great or not and that’s kind of interesting. Walking the line all the time.

A rumour has surfaced, thanks to the keen eye of Lazz below (see no. 5), that Robert Pattinson may make an appearance (whether virtual or in person is anybody’s guess) at this year’s DCFandome on 16 October 2021. Hoping this rumour turns out to be true. I know a lot of the Batman fandom are saying that they believe this is when a new trailer will be unleashed. October isn’t that far away. Starts prayer circle.

Thanks @Monsieur_HJ for heads up.
