DC: Trailer of the new Batman to the spectacular ones of Justice League and Wonder Woman

DC FanDome is blowing through our screens, in the purest The Flash style: a spectacular virtual event that has left us trailers and previews of a good part of the Warner/ DC premieres of the next season, and of a few video games as well dedicated to this superhero universe. 

From more or less imminent releases, such as 'Wonder Woman 1984' or the Snyder Cut from 'Justice League' to others for which we will have to wait more, but for which there was desire to start tasting images, such as 'The Batman' or 'Suicide Squad'. 

We summarize the best moments of the DC Fandome presentations this year.

'The Batman'

The highlight of the virtual convention has been a generous first trailer for the Matt Reeves film starring Robert Pattinson, who has not taken too long to prove that he is perfectly worthy of donning the long-eared mask, and that shows us a Batman still novice and prone to anger. 

We briefly see characters like Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz) or James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright), abundant nods to Riddler (Paul Dano) that suggest that he may be the nuclear villain of the installment, and a few shots of the Batmobile burning tire.

An interesting detail regarding the hero, however, has not come from the trailer, but from Walter Hamada, head of the DC films, who has pointed out in the panel 'Multiverse 101' what had already been suggested for a long time to justify different versions of heroes and villains: there is a DC multiverse, and this Batman does not inhabit the same as the rest of the heroes of the Justice League.

Similarly, Joaquin Phoenix's Joker does not belong to either of those worlds. Hamada made it clear that the company wants to focus on "telling powerful individual stories." Finally, and speaking of Elseworlds, he confirmed that a 'Superman: Red Son' is not in the pipeline.

Premiere October 1, 2021

'Wonder Woman 1984'

The premiere of the sequel to 'Wonder Woman' is just around the corner if it does not suffer further delays, and it is clear that Patty Jenkins has wanted to continue with what we already liked about the first part: humor, extravagance and female protagonism. 

The final trailer focuses on the two villains of the show, the egomaniac millionaire Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and the feline Cheetah (Kristen Wiig), whom we finally see in a suit and in top form. The action takes place during the Cold War, and we hope that its premiere will kick off the superhero season.

Premiere on October 2, 2020

'The Suicide Squad'

With an absolutely overwhelming catalog of characters and a promotion curiously focused on underlining the authorial component of James Gunn, the director of 'Guardians of the Galaxy 'seems to compose with his foray into the DC Universe something similar to a war movie of the seventies with superpowers. 

Clearly it will be more focused on comedy and adventure than the desperate grim & gitty tone that a sector of the fans like so much, and we may have before us a humorous mix of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' itself, 'The Boys' and nothing (except Margot Robbie) reminiscent of Ayer's version. That is, the possible best DC movie of 2021.

Premiere August 6, 2021

'Justice League - The Snyder Cut'

More than a typical trailer, the video presented of the expected 'Snyder Cut' that will be broadcast by HBO Max and that will show the Justice League movie as it was conceived by Zack Snyder, is a testimony that this new version is very different in tone and style from Joss Whedon. 

We see more prominence for Cyborg, The Flash and Aquaman, a fleeting shot with the villain removed from the theatrical version, Darkseid, and a good amount of circumspect gestures that certify that this version is going to be, indeed, one hundred percent Snyder. 

The format, by the way, will be a four-hour movie or a four-episode miniseries.

Premiere in 2021

'Gotham Knights'

At last there is data on the much-rumored Warner Bros. Montreal game (creators of 'Batman: Arkham Origins') set in the Arkham universe. The surprise: there is no Batman, at least for now. 

Bruce Wayne is dead and four of his associates and wards will have to keep order in Gotham: Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing and Red Hood. As expected, the main villains will be the Court of Owls, and DC has also shown a gameplay starring Batgirl in which we have been able to see her pilot her motorcycle through the streets of Gotham and fight with the help of Robin (there will be local cooperative or online for two players). 

All this with the unmistakable style of the games of the 'Arkham saga'. It will arrive in 2021 for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X and Xbox One.

Released in 2021

'Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League'

Even more ambitious is the 'Suicide Squad' video game by Rocksteady (original creators of the 'Arkham' series), which presents a violent story full of humor and which, in this preview, stars Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot and King Shark, whose flesh and blood counterparts we just met in the James Gunn movie. 

Rocksteady promises an open world and cooperative play for up to four people, each with unique powers and abilities. Of course, there is still to see more of this game planned for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X: its arrival will be in 2022.

Released in 2022
