DC’s new blockbuster movie The Batman has just hit cinema screens and is just about as far removed from Adam West’s portrayal of Batman in the 60s as you could possibly get. This is a dark, gritty movie which sees writer and director Matt Reeves put his own spin on the comic book hero.
The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Dark Knight, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Paul Dano as The Riddler, who incidentally, looks like the 10th member of Slipknot thanks to his mask and outfit.

In Metal Hammer's review of The Batman, we praised the cast, saying they managed to “bring something fresh, interesting and vibrant to characters that we've seen on the big screen up to two or three times previously.”
As for the depiction of Gotham, we thought it was on of the “darkest and most compelling” visions of the city, adding: “It's dark, it's dingy, and it feels genuinely dangerous – a city constantly on the edge of chaos, where you're never more than two steps from a mugging, a gang-beating or a shop heist. It's a city that perfectly fits Robert Pattinson's Batman, and while it might not make for a fluffy afternoon watch, it certainly makes for an exciting Batman film.”
