The Batman Reviews Cry About Too Much Rain, Robert Pattinson Not Smiling & More

TheQuartering [3/1/2022]

According to DailyMail:

The Batman has more than an hour of rainy scenes, with Gotham City deluged in a staggering 62minutes and 40 seconds of rain. 

With weather that could rival what the U.K faced in Storm Eunice, one third of the three-hour film is shot in wet weather. 

As critics panned Robert Pattinson’s take on the iconic superhero as ‘gloomy’, the constant showers in the fictional city no doubt add to the depressing atmosphere. 

Due for release on March 4, theatregoers will have to be prepared to sit through the three-hour film, which has been described as ‘overly-long’ by reviewers. 

Rather than being an origin story, the film, directed by Matt Reeves, begins with Batman having been in the job for just over a year.

The release, based on the DC Comics superhero sees Batman pursue The Riddler in his second year of crime fighting, uncovering corruption that is connected to his own family in the investigation, forcing him to make new allies to bring the supervillain to justice.

An all-star cast sees Robert star as Batman while Zoe Kravitz appears as Selina Kyle, or Catwoman.

Also appearing is Paul Dano as Edward Nashton / Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Gotham City crimelord Carmine Falcone, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth and Colin Farrell as Penguin.
