Multitalented artist and superhero enthusiast Michael V. is admittedly excited and looking forward to the latest iteration of DC’s Batman played by Robert Pattinson.

Shortly after the release of the teaser trailer for “The Batman,” Michael V. shared with fans his thoughts on the upcoming superhero film, noting that he has “high hopes” for Pattinson’s take on the Dark Knight.


“Nu’ng in-announce na si Robert Pattinson ang lead role, I never doubted his talent as an actor (When it was announced that Robert Pattinson would take on the lead role, I never doubted his talent as an actor),” the artist said via Instagram on Aug. 26.

“Diverse ‘yung mga roles n’ya sa past movies n’ya. Atsaka hindi na imposible ‘yung body transformation sa Hollywood (His roles in his part movies are diverse. And body transformation is no longer impossible in Hollywood),” he added.


Michael V.’s post came with one of the highlights from the trailer, which shows Batman beating a villain up and introducing himself as “vengeance.” The snippet was also edited to time the superhero’s punches to the beats of Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl.”

“Kinilabutan ako sa part na ‘to (I got goosebumps from this part)! Excited for DCEU and #TheBatman movie!” Michael V. said of the scene.

The said Batman film, directed by Matt Reeves, will, however, not be a part of Warner Bros. Pictures’ existing DC Extended Universe (DCEU), whose Batman is played by Ben Affleck.

“I have high hopes for this Batman iteration. Slow clap for the trailer,” Michael V. said.

Apart from Pattinson’s Batman, the teaser trailer that dropped on Aug. 22 also showcased several villains set to face Gotham’s bat vigilante: Selina Kyle a.k.a. Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), the Riddler (Paul Dano) and Oswald Cobblepot a.k.a the Penguin (Colin Farell).

The shooting for the film is reportedly set to resume in September after months of delay caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The shoot will continue until the end of the year to finalize footage, while the film is slated for a theatrical release in 2021.  /ra
