The Batman

I think this might be the darkest feeling Batman movie yet*. I mean that in the best way possible. I want dark & angsty emotions when I see a Batman trailer. It's not an uplifting property (even though I adore and cherish Adam West's stuff, that's more nostalgia with my Grandparents). So far, in my opinion, the FIRST appearance of each Batman since 89 has been great, it's the follow ups and ability to continue that has been the real bugger, Christian Bale aside (I loved DKR). I think Mr. Pattinson is going to do well.

*not an academic on comic book medium at all and my only knowledge is from the movies I've watched and the discourses I've had online.

I really like that they seem to be leaning into the 'Detective' aspect with Riddler leaving all of these clues and riddles. It's something they teased a little bit in Batman Forever but never really touched upon otherwise. None of Nolan's movies even tried despite The Dark Knight having an opportunity with Batman trying to locate Joker only to just go, "Fuck it. Lucius, use Sonar technology on everything. I can't do intricate detective work today." The closest part in any of his movies may've actually been the neat ballistics testing scene.

I haven’t updated the thread obviously, but there have been a ton of set photos shown since production started back up. Is the consensus that posts of those and discussion about them are to be treated as spoilers or is that fair game?

One of the only things I sort of liked about Ben Affleck Batman is there is a few scenes where he's actually doing detective work. Seeing The World's Greatest Detective actually doing some detecting would be great.

I think it may vary. If it's a basic picture of Pattinson in the Bat costume, I don't think it's that spoiler-y but if it looks like a specific set or say, Batman beating up Riddler that may spoil a plot beat, that could be spoiler-y.
