Fundamentally, Ego is a story about Bruce’s vulnerabilities.
In the very next scene, you will see that battered victim, breathing heavily, his face covered in duct tape.He is presumably moments away from his demise.A phrase is written on the duct tape that has covered his entire face- No More Lies.“What does a liar do when he is dead?” The Riddler asks the question within a few seconds into the trailer.It is a mystery that has not been answered in the trailer, but the fans have solved it.If you want to know the answer, read on.The Internet has erupted ever since DC FanDome unveiled first looks, sneak peeks, trailers, and other details apropos to the upcoming high-budgeted DC projects.However, the trailer of Matt Reeves’s Batman has garnered more exalted nods than anything else that has come out of the inaugural convention.The trailer has been praised for its promise for a David Fincher world set in the backdrop of a city that is under the supervision of a brutal and vengeful superhero.but they have been reluctant in using the tone extensively after the critical failure of Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice.However, with the success and international recognition of the academy award nominee “Joker,” it is believed that they have reevaluated their strategy for the forthcoming films.The trailer of Matt Reeves’s The Batman gives us some glimpses of Robert Pattinson donning the caped crusader suit, which looks extraordinarily different from the previous version, especially in the area of the Bat symbol at the center of his chest.We neither see nor hear much of Edward Nashton, aka The Riddler (played by Paul Dano of Prisoners fame) throughout the trailer except the time when he is wrapping his victim with the duct tape in the very first scene, and the time he is communicating with Bruce Wayne in the final moments of the trailer.

Warner Bros. and DC showed off upcoming DC Comics movies over the weekend during the virtual DC FanDome event.  It gave fans a peek at the future of DC movies over the next few years, with new details and footage for anticipated releases like "The Batman," "Wonder Woman 1984," and "Black Adam." Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Warner Bros. and DC pulled the curtain back on some anticipated theatrical releases over the weekend during the virtual DC FanDome event, revealing new details and footage for "The Batman," "Wonder Woman 1984," and more. DC movies have been trending upward since the DC Extended Universe experiment backfired with 2017's superhero team-up movie, "Justice League," which disappointed at the box office after extensive reshoots and was blasted by critics. Between then and now, "Aquaman" and "Joker" both grossed more than $1 billion worldwide and "Shazam!" debuted to favorable reviews. While the coronavirus pandemic has upended some of DC and Warner Bros.' plans — notably by pushing release dates or stalling productions — the FanDome event highlighted the scope of future movies.  We rounded up every DC movie with a confirmed release date, with new details from FanDome (of course, the dates could change as the pandemic continues to shuffle the theatrical release calendar). An "Aquaman" spinoff, called "The Trench," is also in the works, but hasn't been dated yet. Fans can expect plenty of DC content outside of theatrically released movies, too. The long-awaited "Snyder Cut" of "Justice League" hits HBO Max next year. After "Justice League" flopped, fans clamored for Snyder's director's cut and now they're getting it. Max is also developing original DC shows like a prequel to "The Batman" focused on the Gotham City police and a Green Lantern series. This story was originally published in December 2019 and has been updated with info from DC FanDome. Below are seven DC movies with confirmed release dates hitting theaters:SEE ALSO: The 8 most significant superhero movies of the decade that changed Hollywood "Wonder Woman 1984" — October 2, 2020 The "Wonder Woman" sequel reunites director Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, but shifts the story forward from World War I to the 1980s. The first movie was a critical and box-office hit, raking in $821 million worldwide.  It was originally slated for release in November, 2019, but then pushed back to June. Amid the pandemic, Warner Bros. delayed it again to October.  Watch the new trailer.  "The Suicide Squad" — August 6, 2021 Margot Robbie will again play Harley Quinn for this "Suicide Squad" sequel from director James Gunn, who was hired by Warner Bros. after Disney fired him from the third "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie (he was then re-hired, but is finishing "The Suicide Squad" first). Gunn has assembled a team of new and old faces and the full cast was showcased during FanDome. Returning are Robbie's Quinn, Jai Courtney's Captain Boomerang, and Viola Davis' Amanda Waller. Out is Will Smith, who played Deadshot. Newcomers include Idris Elba as Bloodsport and John Cena as Peacemaker. Gunn called it "by far the biggest movie" he's ever made during a behind-the-scenes look at the movie. Watch it here. "The Batman" — October 1, 2021 Robert Pattinson will play Batman in a new film from "War for the Planet of the Apes" director Matt Reeves. Pattinson takes over from Ben Affleck, who played the Dark Knight in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Justice League." Reeves has assembled an all-star cast that also includes Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, Paul Dano as the Riddler, and Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon. During FanDome, Reeves said that "The Batman" is a "year two" story for a young Batman and acts as an origin story for many of his villains. He also teased the HBO Max spinoff series, calling it a "Year One" story focused on the corruption within the Gotham Police Department amid the emergence of Batman. "Year One is the beginning of the emergence, it's the first appearance of this mass vigilante that starts to unsettle the city," he said. "And you start to see the story through the point of view of these corrupt cops and one in particular. And the story is actually a battle for his soul." Watch the first trailer for "The Batman." "Black Adam" — December 22, 2021 After years of teasing his attachment to the movie, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is opening up about "Black Adam," a frequent foe of Shazam in the comics but also an anti-hero of sorts. It was revealed during FanDome that the movie would introduce the Justice Society of America, which preceded the Justice League in the comics.  "Black Adam has been with me for a very long time," Johnson said during FanDome. "One of the main things I always loved about Black Adam is that he was an anti-hero. I love that he has his own sense of Black Adam justice. I also love the fact that his origins are that of a slave ... he felt the burdens and the pressures of a larger entity holding him down until you can't take it anymore." "The Flash" —June 2, 2022 The "Flash" movie, from "It" director Andy Muschietti, has gone through several different directors and release dates. But it finally came into focus during FanDome. Muschietti called it a "time-travel story" and writer Christina Hodson said that the "cinematic multiverse will be born out of this movie." The event debuted concept art that teased Michael Keaton's return as Batman (he originally played the character in Tim Burton's "Batman" and "Batman Returns").   "Shazam! Fury of the Gods" — November 4, 2022 With $364.5 million worldwide, "Shazam!" wasn't a box-office smash like "Wonder Woman" or "Aquaman." But it was successful enough for Warner Bros. to greenlight a sequel for 2022. "Shazam!" was a hit with critics and has a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. The full title, "Shazam! Fury of the Gods," was revealed at FanDome.   "Aquaman" sequel — December 16, 2022 2018's "Aquaman" grossed over $1 billion globally, so a sequel was inevitable. It will hit theaters in 2022, topping off what will be a busy year for DC movies. Director James Wan is returning.  Wan said during FanDome that the sequel will be "a little bit more serious, a little bit more relevant to the world we're living in today."

Fans concerned about Robert Pattinson’s bladder can breathe a sigh of relief (and so can he, apparently), as it was revealed his new Batman suit was designed specifically so he can go to the toilet with ease.The British actor is set to take on the role of the caped crusader in the new film The Batman, the trailer for which debuted over the weekend.During a Q&A about the film, director Matt Reeves spoke about the functionality of the new Batman’s suit, pointing out that they’d taken one important pointer from Christian Bale, who played the Dark Knight in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy. Stressing how important it was that the outfit be “practical”, Matt said at the DC FanDome: “One of the things that’s really important is being able to work with the actors. Rob [Pattinson] had a very important part in designing the suit in that he had to be able to wear it, he had to be able to fight in it.“One of the things about this Batsuit is that it is very practical. The whole idea is that he’s made it himself. And so, we needed to be able to see how it would fit on him and all the ways he could move but also make it look like something that was still evolving.”When moderator Aisha Tyler questioned whether that meant the suit had pockets, Matt potentially ventured into TMI territory, revealing: “I will tell you this: One of the big things was that Rob actually talked to Christian Bale and [Christian] was like, ‘Just make sure you’re gonna be able to relieve yourself’.”We’re going to choose to believe that means “while wearing the suit” rather than “in the suit itself”, but then again maybe we’d rather not know the specifics.The trailer for The Batman has already sparked a lot of conversation, not just about Robert Pattinson’s emo-esque Bruce Wayne, but also the amazing transformation that Colin Farrell has undergone to portray The Penguin.The Batman is currently scheduled for release in October 2021.READ MORE: The Batman Teaser Reveals A Very Emo-Looking Robert Pattinson OK, We Need To Talk About Colin Farrell's Unbelievable Transformation In The Batman Trailer Robert Pattinson Got Caught Telling A Huge Lie About His Batman Audition
