The recent flurry of set photos from Robert Pattinson’s The Batman seemingly confirm the time period that Matt Reeves is exploring with the movie.
While fans are desperate to learn more about Robert Pattinson’s The Batman, the recent set photos seemingly confirm when the film takes place. There had been plenty of rumors that The Batman would be a period film, taking place in the 1990s. Early speculation even suggested the film was a prequel to Ben Affleck’s Batman. But the new set photos suggest a more modern Gotham City for Robert Pattinson’s The Batman.
The Batman set photos show off a number of vehicles around a crime scene, one of them being a Gotham Action News 4 van. The HD logo on the van suggests The Batman has a modern setting rather than taking place in the 1990s. Although it isn’t impossible that it takes place in the mid 2000s, Robert Pattinson’s The Batman won’t be a period movie, though that doesn’t mean it can’t be heavily stylized in doing so. Take a look at the set photos of the news van below.

Full plot details for 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 Batman trilogy starring Robert Pattinson.
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, Jayme Lawson as Bella, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Peter Sarsgaard. Recently, Colin Farrell was reportedly in talks to play the Penguin.
The Batman opens in theaters on June 25, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the Robert Pattinson movie.
