It’s Batman Week, ladies and gents! Justice League is less than three weeks from its release, and considering Thor: Ragnarok is hitting this week in the U.S., it’s understandable that they’d save their big gun for this week of Justice League member spotlights.

Warner Bros. did a real quick one-two punch with this one, announcing that it’s Batman Week within minutes of a full Batman video released. You can check out the Batman promo above and the Batman Week announcement below:

Many fans may certainly take umbrage with this decisively different take on Batman. While Batman v Superman saw a familiar, antisocial Batman, this new Batman is more full of hope. In this film, Bruce Wayne is utterly changed by his experience with Superman, and has now turned leader.

This is in stark contrast to what fans are used to, with Batman often only begrudgingly joining the League. Batman is, by nature, something of a loner, and to see him take on this different personality will no doubt rub some fans the wrong way? But will it work in the context of the film? We certainly hope so, and from a narrative standpoint, based on this universe, it makes sense.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

    I may not have liked Batman’s murderous ways in BvS but I think Affleck nailed the role and his costume is the best movie Batman costume to date for me (and I hate Frank Miller)

    ….. that Jim Lee drawing doesn’t help. In fact it makes me wonder…. can Ben Affleck move? Like yeah that’s a double who’s doing the stunts, but like he’s never done a heroic pose in the past 3 years. He’s been all arms close by afraid of everything. That one shot of him talking with alfred is totally reshoot, what’s going on there, like the CG mustache doesn’t even compare to Arnold reshoot in terminator 1. Like he doesn’t look like Arkham Asylum batman either….. as much as these films are trying to coAst on comic books iconography which makes it worse since the fans are trying to hunt those down than fallow what is original in this. Like Nolan’s Batman at least was trying to make something new.
