A new Batman featurette focuses attention on some fan-favorite details: the costume, gadgets and the Batmobile.


Robert Pattinson explains that the equipment of his Dark Knight – which, let’s remember, is only in its second year of activity – is handcrafted by Bruce himself.

t is evident from the still “rudimentary” quality of the uniform, weapons and car. The featurette contains some unreleased scenes, and also confirms that the bat symbol on the hero’s chest is his “tactical knife”. We can see him using it to cut a high voltage cable.

In the past few weeks we have found that the cinecomic will run 2 hours and 47 minutes without credits, and that the Motion Picture Association has predictably assigned it a PG-13 rating ( here are the reasons ). Furthermore, we know that the film will not tell the origins of the Bat Man . Do not miss the musical theme of Batman , that of the Riddler and that of Catwoman , all by Michael Giacchino .

I remind you that the Italian release is expected on Thursday 3 March , in less than a week. In the meantime, you will find the featurette below.
