The Batman trailer needed brightened. So we did it. Sure, the first trailer for The Batman debuted at DC Fandome and was met with wide approval.

The trailer’s too dark to actually see what’s going on. The Batman trailer needs brightened.

Luckily, we’ve fixed it and now The Batman trailer is brighter. There’s way more happening in the trailer than you even expect, it’s just hidden in shadows. We’ve screencapped every scene and then applied a simple brightening filter. Suddenly revealed is an actual movie with characters you can actually see.

The big question going into The Batman itself is whether the movie will actually be as dark as the trailer. If it is, expect to have no idea what’s happening throughout most of it. Hopefully the excessive darkness in the trailer was just a means of adding a layer of mystery, as part of teasing the movie. Because really, that’s no way to spend 90-minutes, even in a movie theater. The Batman needs brightened. Show us what you went through all that trouble to shoot, Matt Reeves.
