As THE BATMAN gets closer to its March 4, 2022 release date, more and more merchandise for the film will become available. T-shirts have been able to be purchased for over a year now — since DC FanDome 2020 — and now a cool book about the movie has shown up on Amazon.
THE ART OF THE BATMAN by James Fields is a 224-page hardcover book that will offer a behind-the-scenes look at director Matt Reeves’ film. Here’s the official synopsis…
THE ART OF THE BATMAN is the official behind-the-scenes illustrated tie-in book to the highly-anticipated Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, War for the Planet of the Apes) film, coming to theaters March 4, 2022. Set during Batman’s second year as a crime fighter, this unique, noir-inspired take on the Dark Knight serves as a return to the character’s roots and stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, and Colin Farrell as The Penguin. Readers will get an insider’s look at the film’s production process through character designs, vehicle and gadget designs, and background paintings, alongside original commentary and interviews from the filmmakers, cast, production designer, and conceptual artists.
Sounds awesome! I have THE ART OF BATMAN BEGINS and THE ART AND MAKING OF THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY and they’re both great books. I suspect that this book is similar, so it should be fun to look at and read as well. (Thanks to BOF’er “Robin’s Nest” for the heads up!)
THE ART OF THE BATMAN will be available on March 15, 2022. CLICK HERE to pre-order (I did!). – Bill “Jett” Ramey
