Matt Reeves’ The Batman has officially found its cinematographer in Oscar-nominated Greig Fraser.
We have exciting news.
The Batman has officially found its cinematographer in Oscar-nominated Greig Fraser. The renowned visionary earned his Oscar nomination for Garth Davis’ Lion and has also worked with Gareth Edwards on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. His other screen credits include Zero Dark Thirty, Vice, Foxcatcher and Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming Dune.
Matt Reeves and Greig Fraser had previously worked together on the 2010 film Let Me In.
Fraser has been quoted as saying: “It’s great to be working with Matt again. The Batman franchise is iconic and it’s a privilege to now be able to visualize it in my own way. Especially with the cumulative creative potential of all the talent and technicians we have in front of and behind the camera.”
Despite the rumors and false assumptions, The Batman production team appears to be coming together nicely. Fraser’s involvement in the project gives us a clear indication of the look of The Batman when Robert Pattinson slips into the Batsuit for his big-screen debut. Despite being a Star Wars fantasy film, Rogue One boasted an incredibly gritty war theme which translated through the screen beautifully, and if Fraser can replicate those aesthetics we could be in for an incredible and immersive Batman experience.
The Batman is set to begin filming in early 2020 with a release date set for June 25th, 2021.
