Following a months-long hiatus, writer, director Matt Reeves will now resume shooting Warners "The Batman" standalone feature, reportedly adapting DC Comics' "Batman: The Long Halloween", targeting a June 25, 2021 release:
Cast of the new film also includes Jeffrey Wright, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell, Jayme Lawson, John Turturro and Peter Sarsgaard.
"It's very much a point of view-driven, 'noir Batman' tale," said Reeves. "It's told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it's going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional.
"It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the films.
"The comics have a history of that. He's supposed to be the world's greatest detective...
"...and that's not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been.
"I'd love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime.
"It's going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation."
"Warners believes they don't have to try to develop a giant slate that has to have all the plans for how it's going to connect. What they need to try and do is make good movies with these characters..."
The custom rigged 'Batmobile' car debuted in DC's "Detective Comics" #27 (May, 1939), followed by the cover of "Batman" #20.
The original live-action 'Batmobile', designed in the 1960's by car customizer George Barris recently sold for $4.2 million (plus $400,000 in fees) at an auction in Arizona.
The V-8 engine vehicle, used in the 1966 "Batman' TV series starring actors Adam West and Burt Ward is a built-up 1955 'Lincoln Futura'.
"When I created it (The Batmobile) I wanted to make it a star like Adam West and Burt Ward," said Barris, who produced the car in 15 days on a $15,000 budget. "It was not just a car."
