They are the heroes from Gotham City showcase a more funny and sarcastic aspect to the characters they play in most recent trailer Matt Reeves’ reboot The Batman

A new commercial to promote Warner Bros.’ upcoming Dark Knight reboot The Batman shows the film’s humorous aspect. It features Robert Pattinson donning the cowl as the titular vigilante the latest installment of Bob Kane’s most well-known creation is scheduled to have Batman fighting in a battle against Riddler (Paul Dano) in which the psychotic intellectual tries to take on Gotham City’s elites, and force Bruce Wayne to confront his history with his family. Written and directed by Cloverfield‘s Matt Reeves, Pattinson’s superhero debut will not be tied to DC Extended Universe franchise, the present Caped Crusader is in flux.

The trio that joins Pattinson on his endless search for justice is Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as Lieutenant James Gordon, and Andy Serkis as his loyal Butler Alfred Pennyworth. There’s no shortage of villains too and Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin and John Turturro as crime lord Carmine Falcone providing more grief for the troubled hero while they hunt for the Riddler. As the date of release for the film draws ever closer the viewers have seen plenty of trailers and teasers for the film Batmanahead prior to the film’s premiere, which reveal more and more of the new movie’s plot and what it promises to those who love Gotham City’s fierce protector.

The previous trailers have shown the fact that Batman is a serious film. Batman definitely doesn’t skip the brooding and dark tone that is now popular with Dark Knight himself, with the movie’s depictions of Batman and the Riddler are inspired by Kurt Cobain as well as The Zodiac Killer respectively. Yet the fact that the film will not be without humor too. In a video clip uploaded to Reddit from the AldebaranTauro viewers are not just provided with some new footage but also a glimpse into the type of humor which will to define the character of the film:

Like most of the time the majority the time, the jokes in this episode are aimed at Batman’s cost. Kravitz’s Catwoman humorously referring to Batman in the context of ” vengeance” is surely a playful parody of Batman’s particular obsession. Her inquiry into whether he wears the cowl simply because he’s ” hideously scarred” is a witty critique of his extravagant attitude to his vigilance. But, as it turns out it is apparent that Bruce isn’t afraid to indulge in a humorous self-effacing quip with his nonchalant response to the question of ” yeah” to the question implies a strong sense of sarcasm. It’s possibly a personal joke which refers to his emotional scars, not physical ones. In addition Lieutenant Gordon’s dry, humorous expression in the line ” this guy’s hilarious” is a sign that sarcasm can be infectious in this particular version from Gotham City.
