    I hope FilmTheory realises that The Batman is basically entirely based on the same story as the Arkham games, like, it’s pretty much identical lol. We already know the film’s entire story and what will happen. By this point, considering that it doesn’t look like the Snyderverse will get restored, i think it’s safe to say the DC cinematic universe is dead and buried. If The Batman in 2022 turns out to be good enough and is successful, hopefully it can spark a reboot of sorts.

    Apparently this is now supposed to be a trilogy, so this theory might be wrong. Who knows though, only matt reeves

    Yeah... Filming gets difficult when everyone on set is required to wear a mask. And not a owl ask or bat themed mask but a mask like we are all wearing.

    Oh yeah, its all coming together. Mainly the court of owls part. Because I had already made my own theory about how they could be apart of this. But then you made this video and everything just started to piece itself together. And I actually feel like one of the villains might be joker cuz of those henchmen that we saw. they were wearing makeup, and very specific looking makeup. so I think he's another villain too.

    Is it just me or does the Riddlers way of “revenge” seem very close to what Jason Todd’s way of revenge played out? Both choosing the violent path instead of the “non killing” route that Batman is on

    My theory this batman is an imposter or hush at least this is head cannon for me batman would never attach a gun to his chest as a symbol its his antithesis plus batman has only broken once and that was his spine by bane other than that his spirit is his power.

    Riddler was in gotham show just saying.

    There's plenty of graphic novels & comic book storylines where Batman doesn't come out entirely clean (or even on top). It's high time we got some screen representation for that. #Batmanloses

  • MyDirector

    Theory: If you see the cast for The Batman, there is a person that doesn’t show who he plays as. But, as we seen in Justice League 2021, he did play Deathstroke, so he might be in The Batman.

    that actually sounds like what they would do

    I wouldn’t mind a Batman movie based on something like, The Long Halloween, which is a 13 issue Batman Comic Storyline from 1996-1997. Spoilers for Jeph Loeb’s 25 year old story, but in vague, it’s about Batman, Jim Gordon and Harvey Dent attempting to take on the mob when suddenly, a new killer is emerging, who begins killing off members or associates of the Falcone family on certain holidays. It also features cameos from just about every Batman villain, you got Mad Hatter, Joker, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Solomon Grundy, Scarecrow, etc, etc. I really like the story, and I’d like to see a Live Action Batman movie take inspiration from it, they kind of did with the mob and Mafia intrigue of Gotham (The TV Series) and The Dark Knight.

    I almost cried when I heard Something in the Way in the Batman trailer. The Batman looks so good.

  • Powersheild

    MatPat also misses the heavy influence of the Long Halloween comic in this video (along with Ego) which involves a string of murders across Gotham, specifically targeted against crime families such as the Falcones. All of this fits into the things he mentions in the video (apart from the ultimate perpetrator of the murders, which I won't spoil here).
