“We were robbed”: The Batman Fans Storm Twitter as Robert Pattinson Starrer Gets Snubbed for Best Cinematography

The world for DC fans was changed when Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson dropped The Batman in March 2022. From its dark storytelling to the cinematography, the movie was dearly loved by the audience since The Dark Knight trilogy.

Taking to Oscar nominations, the movie was nominated for three awards. People called it a robbery since The Batman was not nominated for the Best Director or Best Cinematography category at the event.

The Batman was clearly loved by the audiences worldwide.

As the Oscars gear up for the best of the best awards, the people felt robbed and betrayed. The news broke out that The Batman is nominated for Sound, Make-up and Hairstyle, and, Visual Effects, but people noticed the absence of Best Cinematography or the Best Director nominations.

On the vengeful path for justice, people took to Twitter to mourn over the loss of the above-mentioned nominations.

Some people even stated that the movie had a killer score that deserved more recognition than it did.

Starring Robert Pattinson in the lead role and directed by Matt Reeves, the movie currently stands at a strong 85% on Rotten Tomatoes and 7.8/10 on IMDB. This positive reception to Batman hadn’t been seen since Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale’s The Dark Knight trilogy.

With James Gunn canceling several storylines and making some pretty big changes in the DCU, Matt Reeves and Gunn sat for a chat. Positively hoping that Reeve’s Batverse and Gunn’s DCU do not collide, the director assured that they support each other.

“They’re going to be talking to me about what they’re doing in their 10-year plan or certainly what’s in the near future as well so that we can understand that we’re not — it’s air traffic control — we don’t want to be crashing into each other. We want to support each other. I’m super excited. I’m really excited to hear about what they’re doing and to be working with them. It’s going to be cool.”

With the Oscars prepared to face the backlash of angry fans, The Batman is currently available to stream on HBO Max. There will definitely be a Batman 2 which will once again star Robert Pattinson in the titular character and be helmed by Matt Reeves.
