Billie Eilish's James Bond Banger Remixed With R-Batz's Batman Footage Slaps Hard

Shooketh and stirred.

Talk about a big day in the entertainment world. We got the first ever look of Robert Pattinson suited up as Batman via some glorious test footage, which was then topped almost immediately by Billie Eilish randomly releasing her James Bond theme song, ‘No Time To Die’.

Speaking of Billie Eilish and her James Bond tune, the GOAT team dive into that very subject on It’s Been A Big Day For… below:

After having watched the footage of Robert Pattinson rocking his Batman suit before listening to Billie Eilish croon a bunch of depressing lyrics that strongly hints at James Bond dying (or someone else dying) on ‘No Time To Die’, I’ve come to two conclusions:

  • Robert Pattinson and his jawline rock the shit out of the new Batman suit, and the musical score in the test footage is frigging brilliant.
  • Billie Eilish’s song is decent and pretty depressing, but it gets infinitely better when paired with some footage from No Time To Die.

This led to a random thought: What would it be like if Robert Pattinson’s Batman test footage was set to Billie Eilish’s ‘No Time To Die’?

As it turns out, someone decided to make this exact thing happen after having the same thought and the result slaps. Hard.

You wouldn’t think a crossover between Billie Eilish and Batman would work, yet it seems like the stars aligned perfectly for this random remix.

The grim lyrics to ‘No Time To Die’ meshes surprisingly well with the dark and moody aesthetic of R-Batz’s footage, and the song syncs up perfectly with the visuals when it rises to a string-filled crescendo just as we see Rob’s Batman come into focus.

It works so well that you can easily see this Billie Eilish/Batman remix be the actual intro or ending to R-Batz’s Dark Knight flick.

Seeing as how No Time To Die is done and dusted and The Batman won’t be out in cinemas until well into 2021, perhaps Billie Eilish can now lend her voice to a R-Batz Dark Knight theme song. We have a stunning proof of concept already so let’s make it happen.

The First Look At R-Batz Proves That Batman's Greatest Weapon Is His Jawline

'The Batman' has suddenly rocketed to the top of my "most anticipated films" list.

We’ve been going on for a while about how awesome The Batman will be and how Robert Pattinson is perfect as a younger Dark Knight based on nothing but choice quotes and rumours. Well based on some stunning footage released by director Matt Reeves, it seems like our hunch might be right.

Speaking of DC superheroes, the GOAT team dive into Wonder Woman 1984 on It’s Been A Big Day For… below:

Matt Reeves cheekily dropped the first look of The Batman in the form of some camera test footage of Robert Pattinson suited up in the Dark Knight cowl, and holy hell is it amazing.

The footage shows a suited up R-Batz stepping into a dark frame that’s saturated in red light. As an ominous score by The Batman composer Michael Giacchino plays in the background, we see R-Batz and his new Batsuit slowly come into focus.

The whole thing lasts less than a minute but boy is there a lot to digest from it all, which we’ll do after you’ve watched the amazing footage.

Firstly, that score from Michael Giacchino is pure sex as it is distinct in its own noirish way, yet it still feels like “Batman.”

Secondly, the suit looks elaborate and mechanical, and I mean that in a complimentary way. Rather than take inspiration from the Dark Knight suits worn by Christian Bale and Ben Affleck, it looks like Reeves is using the designs from the Batman: Arkham video game series with a dash of Daredevil as his muses. Just take a gander at that bat symbol on R-Batz’s chest. It looks like it holds two batarangs. Amazing.

And lastly and most importantly, the biggest winner of this camera test footage isn’t the score or the Batman suit. No, that accolade goes to Robert Pattinson’s jawline. Rocking the Dark Knight cowl requires a great jawline and R-Batz’s jaw looks like it could cut diamonds.

After much furor over whether Matt Reeves and R-Batz can deliver with The Batman, it definitely looks like we’re in for something special. June 25, 2021 can’t come soon enough.

Marvel's First Gay Couple Is In 'Eternals', Here's Hoping They Do It Right

Time to start walking the walk.

For all the wild success Marvel has had in getting people’s arses in seats to all of its movies, the studio hasn’t had the greatest track record when it comes to LGBTQI+ representation. However, it appears that this is about to change as it’s been confirmed that the upcoming Eternals will feature the MCU’s first ever gay couple.

Speaking about romance, the GOAT team talk about To All The Boys 2 on It’s Been A Big Day For… below:

Chatting to Logo about being part of the sprawling Marvel universe for the first time, Haaz Sleiman says he’ll be playing the husband of Brian Tyree Henry’s Phastos in Eternals, and they’ll be representing a gay couple with a child.

Not only will there be a gay couple onscreen in a Marvel movie for the first time but we’ll actually see them interact with each other and doing couple-y things like kissing and stuff instead of being background afterthoughts:

“Oh, yeah, absolutely, and it’s a beautiful, very moving kiss. Everyone cried on set. For me it’s very important to show how loving and beautiful a queer family can be.

Brian Tyree Henry is such a tremendous actor and brought so much beauty into this part, and at one point I saw a child in his eyes, and I think it’s important for the world to be reminded that we in the queer community were all children at one point.

We forget that because we’re always depicted as sexual or rebellious. We forget to connect on that human part.

This is a big thing for LGBTQI+ representation in the MCU as previous efforts were pretty meh. Over the course of 20-something films, all we got was lot of off-screen talk about Valkryie being bisexual in Thor: Ragnarok and a minor gay character in Endgame. It’s not been great and Marvel has copped quite a bit of criticism for it over the years for talking the talk but not walking the walk.

Here’s hoping that Marvel actually follow through properly with its LGBTQI+ representation in Eternals this time around because it’s important and it’s a little tiring seeing studios doing the absolute bare minimum in terms of inclusivity and patting themselves on the back for it (*cough* that kiss in Rise Of Skywalker *cough*).

Let’s see whether it’s another case of Marvel doing a lot of talking and no showing or whether actual progress is made this time around when Eternals drops on November 6.
