The Batman Movie Is Here And Fans Are Calling It A 'Masterpiece'

Rachael Grealish March 5, 2022

The Batman movie has been released in cinemas across the UK and fans on social media are calling it a ‘masterpiece’.

People are often sceptical to hear yet another remake of the DC anti-hero franchise is hitting our screens, but this time fans are all saying the same thing about the flick: it’s awesome.

The film, starring Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, officially hit cinemas in the UK yesterday, Friday March 4.

Since then many people have taken to social media to say exactly what they think of the movie directed by Matt Reeves.

Some fans are even saying the film has eventually helped Pattinson cast away the shackles of being known as the teen vampire, Edward, in Twilight

Praise wasn’t just for Pattinson, Kravitz’s performance has been deemed the ‘greatest live-action Catwoman’ by some fans – impressive considering there have been some great performances by Eartha Kitt, Michelle Pfeiffer and Anne Hathaway, in the past.

Kravitz recently made headlines as she revealed her version of the character was bisexual.

According to a recent interview with the 33-year-old actor said she’d interpreted the character to be part of the LGBTQ+ community due to her relationship with another character in the film.

In one scene, Selina Kyle (Kravitz) enters her apartment in search of her female friend Anika.

While Selina searches she calls Anika ‘baby’ which has implied to many, including Zoë, that the character had more than a simple friendship with her friend.

When Zoë was asked if this was an intentional nod towards the character’s sexuality she responded: “That’s definitely the way I interpreted that, that they had some kind of romantic relationship.”

Well it seems if there’s one film you splash out at the cinema for, fans say it has to be The Batman.
