There is so much that goes into the making of a film, and so many constraints and expectations from the numerous people involved, that a huge amount of fine cinema has never made it to the big screen. Time constraints might seem to be a thing of the past with today's films, which often exceed two hours, but nearly every director will have to make hard decisions in the cutting room, and sometimes that means deleting scenes that fans perhaps might have loved to see.
'The Batman' starring Robert Pattinson is the biggest cinematic event of 2022 so far, and Warner Bros. just made it even better. They shared a five-minute video of a fascinating deleted scene featuring Irish actor Barry Keoghan as the Joker. The Riddler, played Paul Dano, is the main villain in the movie, but the deleted scene shows Batman visiting his old enemy in Arkham State Hospital to ask for his perspective on the crimes. Joker says "It's almost our anniversary, isn't it?" as Batman enters the room. What follows is an unsettling conversation as the Joker toys with his emotions, unnerving him with the accuracy of his insights. The clip shows Keoghan's Joker for the first time, although his image is blurred by the glass divider he sits behind. It's a tantalizing taste of what's to come as director Christopher Reeves continues to develop his Batman series!
