It is definitely a DC FanDome 2021 monopolizing from the Dark Knight which, in addition to the highly anticipated The Batman, is also shown in an animated version with a behind-the-scenes look at Batman: Caped Crusader. This is a new animated series, announced last May, produced by Warner Bros Animation, Bad Robot Productions and 6th & Idaho, and entrusted to the care of Matt Reeves (The Batman), Bruce Timm (Batman the Animated Series) and J.J. Abrams as executive producers, which will air on HBO Max and Cartoon Network.

Batman: Caped Crusader will show a real reinterpretation of the mythology of Batman, which will "reinvent" not only the figure of the super hero , but also that of its most iconic adversaries, through sophisticated narratives, nuanced characters and intense action sequences, all set in a visually striking world.

Reeves, Timm and Abrams, in a joint statement , said they were overly excited to be able to work together on this new cycle of stories set in Gotham City, and that Batman: Caped Crusader will be an electrifying series, with a strong cinematic slant and which will predominantly represent the noir roots of Batman, while immersing himself deeper and deeper into the psychological backgrounds of the most iconic characters.

Here's the behind-the-scenes look at Batman: Caped Crusader:

Sam Register, president of Warner Bros Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, has also added that the new production will resume the legacy left by that masterpiece that was Batman: The Animated Series (recovered the animated series in original language in blu-ray on Amazon), a work able to shape the perception of an entire generation towards the character of the Batman and that the synergy between these three talented masters of storytelling, will make Batman: Caped Crusader a work capable of collecting its legendary heritage.

The Batman Behind-the-Scenes Featurette Revealed at DC FanDome

The Batman movie revealed a new behind-the-scenes at DC FanDome - in addition to the official first The Batman trailer that millions of fans have been waiting for. The Batman behind-the-scenes featurette showed director Matt Reeves and his cast (led by Robert Pattinson's Batman and Zoe Kravitz's Catwoman) putting together the dark puzzle of murder and mayhem that fans will see in this new vision of Gotham City. The production footage was scored to the ominous tune of composer Michael Giacchino's new Batman theme, which first introduced the world to The Batman movie at DC FanDome 2020. 

'For some reason Batman just always stood out as one of the major characters of the 20th century that so many people connected with on such a deep level - and for so many different reasons,' Pattinson explains in the video. 'The first conversation with Matt [Reeves] I had about it, I just knew there was something radically different from anything we'd seen in Batman movies before... Right from the beginning there's a desperation to him. He's really working out this rage. All the fights seem very personal... He wants to inflict his kind of justice. He's just compelled to do it. There is no other option.' 

'I felt we'd seen a lot of origin stories,' Reeves adds. 'We'd seen things go further and further into fantasy, and I thought 'Well one place we haven't been is grounding it the way that 'Year One' does. To come right into a young Batman. Not be an origin tale but refer to his origins and shake him to his core.' 

'That great thing about this world is the grey area,' Zoe Kravitz explains. 'Catwoman really wants to fight for those who don't have someone else to fight for them. And that's where Batman and her really connect.' 

Director Matt Reeves spoke in the interview following this behind-the-scenes footage by saying that it seems like a lifetime ago that they shot the scenes we see in the featurette - and that is definitely true. THe Batman was one of the biggest films to have its production utterly up-ended by the COVID-19 pandemic during 2020, resulting in one of the bigger delays for a major studio tentpole film. 

That all said, The Batman trailer is the biggest thing to come out of DC FanDome, and the response from fans suggests the delays will only make the audience turn ou that much bigger. 

The Batman is in theaters on March 4, 2022.
