Matt Reeves teases fans with a little snippet, a clapperboard of the first scene that is being filmed for The Batman. Ever since the release of Todd Phillips' Joker back in October and the film receiving worldwide acclaim along with its fair share of controversy fans are hungry for more DC movies. A few are going to be released in the coming years, but it's fair to say that The Batman is the most anticipated in DC's slate of films for many reasons.

The most anticipated superhero film of the new decade The Batman has finally begun filming. The director of the film, Matt Reeves, tweeted out a picture of the first clapperboard of the shoot taking place in London. Tagging the Director of Photography, Greig Fraser, and showing scene 17 will be the first step into producing The Batman.

The leading role of the caped crusader went to Robert Pattinson and since then, he's been backed with a superstar line up. Backing up our new Batman are Colin Farrell as The Penguin, Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Paul Dano as The Riddler, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, and Peter Sarsgaard as a yet to be announced unnamed character.

Of course, this wouldn't be a Batman film if it wasn't met with a little bit of controversy. When Pattinson was initially announced as the Batman back in May of 2019, it was met with backlash from the DC fans that probably hadn't seen Pattinson in a film since his days on the set of the Twilight saga. Other fans that have followed Pattinson's career since then we're quite excited to see him dawn the mask because of his amazing performances in his more low profile roles.

Pattinson these days is more known for hitting up the indies as opposed to landing tentpole movies. His more acclaimed roles like Connie Nikas in Good Time, Thomas Howard in The Lighthouse, and Monte in High Life were probably some of the big reasons that Reeves decided to go with Pattinson and could even hint to the type of tone the new Batman film will try and go for.

There is no doubt that Pattinson will give it his all in the iconic role, but fans do have the right to be concerned. When Ben Affleck took the role in 2016 and was confirmed to direct, co-write, and star in a solo Batman film, fans were intrigued to have someone like Affleck take on the duties but were later let down when he completely stepped away from Batman at the beginning of 2019. Hopefully, everyone onboard can deliver us an amazing new version of the characters that we all know and love.

Everyone wants Batman to return to his glory days, back to when Christopher Nolan gave us an amazing trilogy of films that has stood passed the test of time. This is Pattinson's first high profile role since the Twilight films and will be following up 2019's Oscar-nominated Joker, 2020's Birds Of Prey and Wonder Woman 1984 in the slate of movies that DC has in the coming years. All those films could have some sort of implication for our yet to be seen Batman.
