The Batman Test Audience Reactions: "A Horror Movie," "Very Scary" – The Mary Sue

The Batmanis the highly anticipated foray into the world of Gotham from director Matt Reeves, starring none other than Robert Pattinson as Batman. Picking quite a few of Batmans infamous foes from the Rogues Gallery, the movie is set to put Bruce Wayne face to face with everyone from Catwoman to the Riddler and beyond. (The only major one we seem to be free of is the Joker, which thank you, Matt. If you want to add Poison Ivy, though, Id be happy with that.)

Now, we may have our first real reaction to the Reeves flick, and it gives me such hope that this might be the best live-action look into the world of Batman yet! We dont have full confirmation that this is real, just the word of The GOAT Movie Podcast cohost Angel (blurayangel on Twitter). But if this is a first reaction to The Batman, were in for quite a ride and one that I, personally, cant wait for.

A horror movie honestly makes sense for Bruce Wayne. When you stop and think about him, hes born in the darknesssomething that has been made clear time and time again with these movies and even, to some extent, the 1960s television show. Hes our Dark Knight, the prince of Gotham, and giving him a horror twist makes Bruce Wayne interesting in a way that he hasnt been, to me at least, in a long while.

And the movie is apparently long.

What Im excited about most is Catwoman. I love Selina Kyle, I love Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, and I love the idea of Zo Kravitz as Catwoman. Apparently, Im right to be excited about her, too.

Now, the Batman voice has been a topic of conversation since Christian Bales trilogymainly because it was hilariously gruff and different and then became a thing between Batmen. Robert Pattinsons? Apparently perfect.

The Batmobile is an important aspect of this franchise. Everyone has their favorite. Im partial to Christian Bales tank-like car, but we all like what we like, and apparently, the reaction to the Batmobile was Holy f*cking sh*t.

But if that wasnt enough, the ending will seemingly shock us all enough that we end up screaming?! Over Batman!? In 2022?!

Honestly, Im very excited about The Batman. Bruce Wayne is the Worlds Greatest Detective, something I personally feel like we havent seen in the live-action format yet, and from what Ive heard from Matt Reeves, he understands that part of Batmans story. Making this a horror movie? Turning Gotham into the terrifying world we learned about in the comics? I cant wait.
