Both Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson have shared that the upcoming Batman movie will be quite different from previous versions as it will feature the superhero in the early days of his vigilantism. In a featurette played during the 2021 ComicCon, Reeves said, "I felt that we've seen lots of origin stories. It seems things go further and further into fantasy, and I thought, well, one place we haven't been being grounding it in the way that Year One does, to come right into a young Batman, not being an origin tale, but referring to his origins and shaking him to his core." 

The cast of The Batman also includes s Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as the GCPD’s James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gotham D.A.
