Keaton’s Batman Reimagined With Pattinson’s Trailer Song Is Haunting

A fan has re-edited the trailer for Michael Keaton’s Batman in the style of The Batman, setting it to Nirvana’s “Something in the Way.”

Michael Keaton gets the Robert Pattinson treatment in a new fan trailer for 1989’s Batman set to Nirvana’s “Something in the Way.” It’s been over three decades, and multiple Caped Crusaders, since Keaton made his debut as Bruce Wayne alongside Jack Nicholson’s Joker in Tim Burton’s gothic, noir-style film. Long before Sam Raimi and Christopher Nolan gave audiences spider-man (2002) and batmanbegins (2005), respectively, 1989’s Batman was arguably the first film to take comic book adaptations seriously. Burton’s follow-up, batman returns (1992), doubled down on all this, making Keaton’s live-action take on the Dark Knight a definitive one.


Following in the footsteps of Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck, Pattinson recently took up the mantle of Batman in yet another cinematic reboot. Initially, the casting of the former twilight star drew mixed reactions online. However, the release of batman‘s first teaser during DC FanDome in 2020, set to “Something in the Way,” seemingly silenced many of the naysayers. Writer/director Matt Reeves’ gritty thriller has since proven itself to be a faithful addition to the franchise and Pattinson a worthy successor to Keaton. Now, an intrepid fan has taken batman‘s unofficial anthem and applied it to Batman.

Pattinson’s reclusive Bruce Wayne is a far cry from Keaton’s playboy, but the former’s “vengeance” and hunt for the Zodiac-killer-esque Riddler (Paul Dano) could not exist without the latter. Reeves’ film avoids the biggest problems of comic book movies of old: tempering of violence and studio interference. In the wake of Burton and Keaton’s exit from the Batman franchise, films like batmanforever (nineteen ninety five) and batman and robin (1997) represent a dramatic shift in tone that turned a lot of people away. While Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy was more than a return to form, Affleck’s tenure has also been plagued by excessive meddling. in many ways, batman is a film more in the vein of Batman ’89.

Of course, Keaton is set to reprise his role in the upcoming DCEU film Flash—which will also star Affleck as his iteration. With HBO Max’s upcoming batgirl film only, and Batman 2 already confirmed (as well as multiple spinoffs), it remains to be seen which Bat-person will reign supreme. Regardless, there’s certainly nothing in the way of Batman‘s long, profitable, and historical past, present, and future.
