DC Entertainment has now put up a one minute video depicting the 75 years of Batman’s existence as a comic book hero. This is a part of their prep course for the fans as they gear up for the mega team-up film Justice League.
The video highlights Batman’s adventures as a vigilante before he joined the Justice League:
“Before the Justice League, Batman was a one-man war on crime. He struck fear into the hearts of Gotham’s criminal with brutal tactics and intimidation. The man brooding under the mask wasn’t some supernatural creature, but billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne.
Orphaned at a young age and obsessed with preventing a tragedy like this from ever happening to someone else, Bruce hardened his body and mind into a weapon against injustice.”
Ben Affleck who debuted as Batman in the 2016 film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will reprise the role in Justice League. Affleck had explained earlier as well that Justice League will show Batman heading a team of superheroes and not fighting them.
“This is a very different dynamic for Bruce Wayne from the first movie, where he was full of anger and resentment and a kind of irrational rage towards Superman,” Affleck said. “Here, he’s really in the mode of your more classic Batman story, where he’s more heroic, trying to save and protect people, trying to build this unit,” Affleck said. “That was a totally different thing. The idea that this character is trying to assemble a group and get them to work together. Because Batman is a kind of internal, dark, conflicted guy. So it was challenging for him to turn outward and try to get all these people to work together.”
Justice League will release on November 17, and it will be followed by Aquaman on December 21, 2018, Wonder Woman 2 on December 13, 2019, Shazam on April 5, 2019, Cyborg and Green Lantern Corps in 2020.
