Now that the hype surrounding the MCU's Spider-Man: No Way Home is starting to die down, Warner Bros. is doubling down on its efforts to market The Batman. The upcoming Matt Reeves-directed film isn't going to be set in the DC Extended Universe, but judging by the looks that we've gotten from it so far, it's shaping up to be just as big of a spectacle as other interconnected comic book superhero films.
Having said that, the latest teaser for The Batman is sure to get fans even more excited for the movie's upcoming premiere in March.
Batman and Catwoman's chemistry take center stage in Duet
The latest Batman reboot film will be unlike every other Batman film before it. It's set to explore Bruce Wayne's earlier years as a more inexperienced and brutal Batman. Not only that, but it will put the spotlight on the relationship between Robbert Pattinson's Batman and Zoe Kravitz's Catwoman, as the two work together to rid Gotham of its corrupt denizens.
In a way, the latest spot, Duet, is a shorter version of the recent trailer for The Batman, Bat and Cat. However, unlike Bat and Cat, Duet comes with additional footage that teases more of the bullet-riddled action scenes that fans should expect from The Batman.

In addition to Kravitz and Pattison, The Batman's cast will also include Paul Dano as Ridler and Colin Farrel as the Penguin. It's been a while since audiences got to see live-action movie versions of these two, so you can understand the excitement of Batman fans, especially with Farrel also set to reprise his role as Penguin in a spin-off for HBO Max.
The Batman is part of Warner Bros.' stacked lineup of comic book movies for 2022. After it premieres on March 4, 2022, DC fans can look forward to DCEU's Black Adam on July 29, 2022. Other DCEU films to look forward to in 2022 includes Ezra Miller's solo outing in The Flash and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
In other news, Jason Killar just confirmed when The Batman will come to HBO Max. According to the WarnerMedia CEO, The Batman will see a 45-day theatrical release before heading over to the popular streaming platform on April 19, 2022. Meanwhile, on the DCEU side of things, Hiram Garcia claims that Black Adam might lead to multiple sequels and spin-offs, including a possible Kingdom Come live-action adaptation.
