The Batman star Jeffrey Wright recently used a classic Batman comic to tease fans with the storyline of the Matt Reeves film.
Plot details for The Batman might be kept under the wraps for the moment but Jeffrey Wright recently teased fans with what they might expect to see from the film with a classic Batman story. Since Matt Reeves’ The Batman will focus heavily on the Dark Knight’s skills as a detective, the run of comics Jeffrey Wright posted to his Instagram ties in with that theme. It also makes sense since Robert Pattinson’s Caped Crusader will be in his second year of being a vigilante, and the book the star teases takes place not long after Batman: Year One.
The Batman star Jeffrey Wright posted a copy of The Long Halloween to his Instagram, which sees Bruce try and stop a serial killer targeting his victims on holidays once a month. As well as including the origin of Harvey Dent’s Two Face, the story shows many of Batman’s enemies transform into the iconic super-villains that fans know and love. Given that fans many fans assume that Peter Sarsgaard is playing Harvey Dent as well as the appearances of Catwoman and the Penguin, it seems like The Long Halloween could be a huge part of the film. Take a look at Jeffrey Wright’s Instagram post below.

Full plot details on The Batman are currently under wraps, though the film will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. The Matt Reeves film will follow Batman during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector and will make use of the Dark Knight’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC films. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
