Spin Master exclusively reveals their new The Batman figures and Batmobiles based on Matt Reeves’ upcoming reboot of the film franchise. Robert Pattinson leads the cast of the new installment as the titular hero alongside Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth and Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot, better known as The Penguin. The Batman centers on Bruce Wayne in his second year of fighting crime as he discovers a tangled web of corruption in Gotham City with ties to his family’s past while also dealing with a string of murders committed by a cryptic killer known as The Riddler.
Development on The Batman first began as a solo film in the DC Extended Universe with Ben Affleck co-writing, directing, producing and starring, though that project would begin to fall through as Reeves was brought on to direct in place of Affleck. With Affleck later departing due to personal issues, Reeves would rework the script to be separate from the DCEU and centers on Wayne’s early days of fighting crime, borrowing primary inspiration from “Year One,” “The Long Halloween,” “Ego” and “Zero Year” and landing Pattinson in early 2019. Production on The Batman would begin in early 2020 and run until early 2021 due to multiple delays from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
With just a couple months remaining until the film’s arrival, Screen Rant has the exclusive first look at Spin Master’s The Batman figures and Batmobiles. The movie collection includes 4 and 12-inch figures of Pattinson’s Dark Knight, including a Wingsuit Batman, Kravitz’s Selina Kyle and Catwoman and Farrell’s Cobblepot, while there are two versions of the Batmobile, including a remote-controlled turbo speed figure.

Spin Master’s The Batman statues and Batmobile figures are sure to be a hot seller for the global children’s entertainment company upon their arrivals sometime this spring. While a 12-inch statue of Robert Pattinson’s titular hero is sure to make for a nice addition to display on a shelf, the 4-inch figures of he, Selina Kyle and The Penguin certainly could draw a lot of attention from consumers given their inclusions of an evidence collectible card and unique accessories, namely Batman’s Batarang, Catwoman’s whip and The Penguin’s umbrella. The Batmobile statues also offer a nice look at the updated muscle car look for the Dark Knight’s iconic vehicle.
Anticipation continues to build as time draws nearer for The Batman to arrive in theaters following its near-year-long delay from the pandemic and production troubles. With Reeves’ desire to better explore the nature of the character’s status as the World’s Greatest Detective and plans for a trilogy and spin-offs centered on Farrell’s Penguin and the Gotham City Police Department, he and Warner Bros. clearly have a lot of faith in the latest take on the iconic DC hero. Only time will tell if it proves to be a success when The Batman hits theaters on March 4.
