6. The Batman

Matt Reeves’ The Batman is the perfect example of a modern movie that tried something different without ever losing sight of the source material’s identity. An underground system of caverns and caves, this Batcave is located on an old train stop below Wayne Tower. As a result, you can actually see the below-ground levels of the building wall and there are two fancy staircases leading down to the cave itself.

Its large and spacious, showcasing the arched foundations of the building that it dwells under. The lighting is dim, reflecting the moody tone of the movie, while the bats which often fly around it are a welcome reminder that it is, indeed, a Batcave.

Bruce accesses it via the old underground railway system, which is showcased early on in the movie when he speeds into it on a motorcycle after patrolling the city. It feels very in-line for The Batman‘s simple and effective approach; after all, this is just his second year as a crimefighting vigilante.

While there is certainly room for future upgrades, this Batcave is perfect for the world which it inhabits, understanding the assignment and setting itself apart at the same time. It just would have been nice to see the environment explored a bit more in the movie itself.
