Fans Laud 'The Batman' Trailer For Using NIRVANA Song
Batfans are praising Matt Reeves and company for their impeccable song choice in the first trailer of The Batman starring Robert Pattinson.
The stunning teaser which debuted at the #DCFanDome uses a version of Nirvana's "Something In The Way" off their breakout album Nevermind. Of course, grunge aficionados immediately recognized the tune as soon as the intro played.

Something about this perfectly grungy atmosphere, Something in the Way droning in the background, Jeffrey Wright's tired narration reading a riddle, is just so quintessentially Batman. pic.twitter.com/eJkVMS0res— Cal (@wyattyhalpert) August 23, 2020
