The Batman doesn’t hit theatres worldwide until March 4th, but a few lucky people have already seen it. I am not one of those fortunate individuals, but two years ago I was fully prepared to simply wait until the film was released in theatres and then watch it peacefully after the post-rush period. But, a Pandemic later, and thanks to the rave reviews of those who have seen it, things have changed for me. Now I can’t wait to watch it and give you the my raw thoughts about the film.
I was able to get one of those now sold-out tickets thanks to DC releasing the film a day earlier in India. So, while I and you wait for the film until Thursday, let’s take a look at some of the early reactions to this much-anticipated “DC Event.”
I’ve seen #TheBatman and it is incredible! I had high expectations going into the film and they were surpassed in every way possible. This is the Batman movie I’ve been waiting for. It's nearly 3 hours and I would’ve happily watched a 6-hour cut of this story. pic.twitter.com/rVMsHpBrLU— Dorian Parks (@DorianParksnRec) February 28, 2022
So glad I had several days between when I saw #TheBatman & the embargo lifted because initially when it ended I was like "that was really good." But the longer I sit w/it, the more I've found myself obsessing, mulling over its genius. This film isn't leaving me any time soon. pic.twitter.com/fwZl1Jj8Np— Griffin Schiller (@griffschiller) February 28, 2022
#TheBatman will go down as one of the best comicbook films in a long time. The script, performances, set pieces, & visual storytelling was phenomenal. Robert Pattinson shines as an emotional brooding Batman next to Paul Dano's terrifying Riddler. Matt Reeves' modern masterpiece. pic.twitter.com/FBoQmjLzJs— Duane Miller (@Cinemaniac94) February 28, 2022
Brooding, seductive, and chilling - I haven’t been able to get #TheBatman out of my head since I saw it.— Emily Murray (@EmilyVMurray) February 28, 2022
Its fiery vengeance is indeed striking, but it’s the film’s hope that really shines through. It’s not just a signal or a warning, but something so much more 🦇 pic.twitter.com/vvUpbfAbnv
I've seen #TheBatman and it is a ferocious detective drama punctuated by moments of incredibly visceral action. Matt Reeves' direction is dark, deep, intense & flooded w/ instantly iconic imagery. A live-action BATMAN movie unlike any we've seen. Brilliant & badass. BIG recommend pic.twitter.com/SreOnnFnHC— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) February 28, 2022
#TheBatman is a ridiculous, bold, brilliant event, absolutely jam-packed with style & a surprising sense of humor. It’s like nothing else in this space, and that has only made me love it more with each passing moment. I’m obsessed. pic.twitter.com/TPdCSeX5JT— Jenna Anderson (@heyitsjennalynn) February 28, 2022
But, forget about the film itself, cause the post-credits scene is overwhelming. Seriously, if you needed a reason to watch #TheBatman and make it a DC hit, surpassing a billion dollars, now you have it. Those 2 mins. sustain at least another 10 years of Bat movies. 👇 pic.twitter.com/OEsF3VcZV1— Gabriel Carvalho (@gabirucarvalho) February 28, 2022
