“My brilliant friend, Michael Giacchino, wrote this theme before I ever shot a frame of The Batman,” said director Matt Reeves. “I can still remember listening to it in my car with Dylan Clark before we went onto the stage to do Robert Pattinson’s screen test. We both had chills.”
Warner Bros. Pictures this week also confirmed that the March 4 release has a runtime of two hours and 55 minutes. The film’s runtime includes about eight minutes of credits.
The Batman has been rated PG-13 for strong violent and disturbing content, drug content, strong language, and some suggestive material.
The Batman stars Robert Pattinson in the dual role of Gotham City’s vigilante detective and his alter ego, reclusive billionaire Bruce Wayne. Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City.
Matt Reeves (the Planet of the Apes films) directed from a screenplay by Reeves & Peter Craig, based on characters from DC. Batman was created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger.
Dylan Clark (the Planet of the Apes films) and Reeves produced the film, with Michael E. Uslan, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo and Simon Emanuel serving as executive producers.
Also on board are Oscar-nominated sound mixer Stuart Wilson (1917, Star Wars); Oscar-winning costume designer Jacqueline Durran (1917, Little Women, Anna Karenina) and costume designers Glyn Dillon (Star Wars) and David Crossman (1917, Star Wars); hair designer Zoe Tahir (No Time to Die, Spectre); and Oscar-nominated makeup designer Naomi Donne (1917).
The television series, to be written by Winter, is set in the world Reeves is creating for The Batman movie and will build upon the motion picture’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham City, ultimately launching a new Batman universe across multiple platforms.
Reeves’ 6th & Idaho production company will produce the series in association with Warner Bros. Television. Reeves and Emmy winner/Oscar nominee Winter (The Sopranos, The Wolf of Wall Street) will executive produce with Clark (Bird Box, Rise, Dawn, and War for Planet of the Apes).
The Gotham City police department drama, which is based on characters created for DC by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, will also be executive produced by 6th & Idaho’s Daniel Pipski (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series) and Adam Kassan (Tales from the Loop); Rafi Crohn (Tales from the Loop) will co-executive produce.
