First capturing the superhero’s official logo on the chest, the camera then moves upward to show the actor with the iconic cowl. All this while, Michael Giacchino’s thunderous and emphatic score is ringing aloud in the background.

Joining him in the film are Paul Dano as The Riddler, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, Colin Farrell as Penguin and Peter Sarsgaard in a mystery role.
Giacchino, who previously collaborated with Reeves on Let Me In (2010), Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) and War for the Planet of the Apes (2017), is providing the background music.
The Batman is scheduled to be released on June 21, 2021.
