Early Screening Reveals Robert Pattinson's Batman Film Is A 'Horror Movie'

Everyone is eager to see how Robert Pattinson will stack up as the next Batman and it seems like it will be a much darker film compared to its predecessors.

While the Caped Crusader is cemented in action, violence and dark thematics, the newest addition to the universe will be going deeper.

One person allegedly invited to an early test screening of the movie described it as 'very dark', 'very graphic', and 'very scary'.

The film has been labelled a 'horror', which is very different from the earlier Batman instalments, and the villain is reportedly straight up 'f**king crazy'.

Paul Dano plays Riddler in The Batman and it seems like his version of the character is a much more terrifying version.

Previously played by the hilarious Jim Carrey in Batman Forever, the iconic DC villain helped lighten the mood with his interesting riddles, cryptic ideas, red hair and hilariously green outfit.

Movie insider Blu Ray Angel wrote on Twitter that a friend of his had seen a three-hour version of The Batman and it was absolutely incredible.

When speaking about Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, the viewer said: "I have a million things to say about Catwoman, she's my favorite, holy s**t... definitely my favorite Catwoman."

They added that Robert Pattinson's voice as Batman was 'perfect' and that his Batmobile 'slayed'.

They also said: "There's a scene at the end that literally had everyone SCREAMING, everyone gasped.. like it was a big NO WAY for everyone.

"I don't give a f**k about Batman or DC and even I clenched on to a knee and was shook. It's the biggest mic drop."

Fans were given the first proper look at Matt Reeves' The Batman in August last year when a trailer dropped at DC's FanDome event.

The more than two-minute long teaser certainly aligned itself with the idea that it'll be dark and scary.

The lack of colour plus the villain's ominous tone all lended to this being a very interesting iteration of the Batman superhero franchise.

Director Matt Reeves added that that first trailer was made when only 25 per cent of the movie had been filmed, so you can only imagine what else they have up their sleeve.

Co-writer Mattson Tomlin teased that the film will look into Wayne's soul, telling Den of Geek: "I think that really looking at Batman as somebody who has gone through this trauma, and then everything that he's doing is then a reaction to that, rather than shy away from that.

"I think this film leans into that in some very fun and surprising ways. I think that's all I can say without getting yelled at."

We'll be getting a new trailer on October 16 ahead of the movie's release on 4 March 2022.
