The Batman: whose trailer song is it?

The Batman: whose trailer song is it?

The Batman

A few hours have passed since the second trailer of The Batman and, should it be needed, with just over 2 minutes at its disposal, the trailer has already made Batmania (re) explode in the general public while avid readers and enthusiasts bask in the the fact that the Dark Knight will be the hottest topic for the next few months.

We present the trailer that you can find in Italian:

The atmosphere is oppressive, the aesthetics decadent with a Gotham rainy and Robert Pattinson understood and above all brutal. What is striking about the trailer is obviously also the soundtrack which, after abandoning the symphonic atmospheres of the 80s / 90s and the neo-symphonic atmospheres of the Nolian trilogy, relies on a remixed semi-acoustic piece.

The song you hear in the background in the trailer is in fact a Nirvana song titled Something in the Way. The song obviously bears the signature of the late frontman of the band or Kurt Cobain and was written in 1991. As always the lyrics of the song are autobiographical and speaks of the moment when Cobain left high school and, refusing to find a job, was kicked out of home. The song talks about "living under a bridge" even though the band's bassist, Krist Novoselic, and Cobain's sister Kim, have always denied that Kurt ever lived homeless.

The mystery around the piece remains however: the text was written by Cobain with a spray can under the bridge of Young Street in Aberdeen, in April 1984, subsequently canceled. Producer Butch Vig had to repeatedly ask Cobain to sing louder during the recordings but Kurt repeatedly refused to force the sound engineer to crank up the microphone level.

Here is the original version. of the song, which is the twelfth track, contained in the seminal 1991 album Nevermind:

The text is obscure obviously speaks of seeking food, water and shelter. But also of animals that emerge from the cracks in the walls and become pets. The title of the song literally means "something in the boxes" and indicates the difficult relationship that Kurt had with his family. In fact, Kurt would be that "something" between the boxes.

A metaphor, between the lyrics of the song and The Batman, which can certainly be multi-layered.

Bone-Crushing 'The Batman' Trailer Unleashes Robert Pattinson And Zoë Kravitz's Catwoman

From the ashes of Batfleck’s scrapped solo film, a new hero rises in the latest trailer for “The Batman.”

Warner Bros. unveiled fresh footage of Robert Pattinson in cape and cowl at DC FanDome on Saturday, a year after fans got their first look at the new take on the titular hero.

While we’ve seen Gotham depicted on screen countless times before, it’s never looked as villain-clogged or as nasty as this, with the Bat encountering multiple baddies from his rogues gallery, including the Riddler (Paul Dano), Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz) and Oswald Cobblepot, aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell ― yes, that’s actually him under all those prosthetics).

Directed by Matt Reeves, “The Batman” picks up with the caped crusader in only his second year of vigilantism, as opposed to Ben Affleck’s relatively seasoned hero. But from this look, you wouldn’t know Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne is new to the whole crime-fighting thing.

In the trailer, the violence is more brutal and bone-crunching than ever, as Batman beats, mows down and electrically shocks baddies with relative ease in a new bulletproof suit to quench his thirst for vengeance.

“Fear is a tool,” Bruce says as the Bat-Signal goes out over Gotham at the start of the trailer. “When that light hits the sky, it’s not just a call. It’s a warning.”

Reeves has described his vision for the film as an “almost noir-driven, detective version of Batman,” and the trailer commits to the theme, as Batman goes full gumshoe to solve clues left by the mysterious Riddler, who appears to be the film’s central threat.

The clip gives plenty of play to Pattinson’s broodier-than-ever Batman, but it’s Kravitz as Selina Kyle who steals the show, coolly telling Batman, “I can take care of myself.” And so she does, in a slew of stiletto-assisted and disguise-heavy action sequences, with Kravtiz ― who voiced a version of character in 2017’s “The Lego Batman Movie” ― seeming to slink into the role just fine.

“I don’t want her to be an idea, you know, I want her to be a real human being in a real situation in a real city trying to survive and reacting to her own pain,” Kravitz said of her character during a panel at DC FanDome, according to Variety.

The Caped Crusader, or at least one incarnation of him, also popped up in the first look at Ezra Miller’s long-awaited “The Flash” solo outing. In the final seconds of the first official teaser, Michael Keaton ― who portrayed the character in Tim Burton’s “Batman” films some 30 years ago ― makes a brief appearance. The multiverse-busting film is also expected to bring Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne back into the fold.

“The Batman” is set to finally hit theaters on March 4, 2022, while “The Flash” is slated for release on Nov. 4, 2022.
