When Battinson created the surprise I am the night… in the land of the rising sun
When Battinson created the surprise
A bit like every time a new actor is chosen to embody a character from the Batman license, the announcement of Robert Pattinson in the costume of the Dark Knight has caused a lot of ink to flow. Between those who only saw him as Edward Cullen from Twilight, those who hadn’t seen him in action since his role as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and those who grumble anyway at every time we touch on their favorite character, the American actor must have read a lot of negative comments about his future role before anyone even got to see him in action.
However, if a good part of the public had already been reassured as soon as the first trailer for The Batman was broadcast (available in the video above), the vast majority of spectators finally swallowed their hatred once in front of the screen of movie theater. Of course, some continued to criticize him for having a slightly too pronounced “emo” side, but the latter was then in total adequacy with the tone of the film, closer to a tribute to black films than to superhero films.
Far from being alone on screen, the performance of Paul Dano as Mystery Man and Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman also helped convince the general public of the quality of the film, not to mention the very particular direction of Matt Reeves and the general atmosphere of the film. In other words, if the project was scary at its beginnings, it didn’t take long for it to become a real success that we were already looking forward to seeing again when we left the cinema. And that’s good, because it’s now possible!
I am the night… in the land of the rising sun
It was through a trailer that Netflix announced the news: The Batman is now available on the SVOD platform! Only small problem… it is currently only the case in Japan. Nothing surprising in the end, given that the film was released in March 2022 and that the French media chronology prevents any release on an SVOD platform before 15 to 17 months after the theatrical release.
If you want to take advantage of it, you will have to log in to your Netflix account on Japanese territory., and know how to speak Japanese or English very well since the only two dubbings and subtitles available are in these two languages. A godsend if you live in the land of the rising sun…
While waiting for it to arrive on Netflix in France, if you want to see The Batman again, you still have the option of going through MyCanal, renting it or buying a DVD or Blu-Ray version of Matt Reeves’ film. And if reading this article made you want to watch a Batman in Japan, we can only redirect you to the Batman Ninja movie, available on our French Netflix catalog.
