A brand new trailer heavily featuring Batman and Catwoman has arrived for The Batman.
The Batman is a reboot of the iconic DC Comics property spanning all the way back to 1939. This film thrusts The Lighthouse alumni Pattinson into the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. Pattinson will star alongside Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as The Penguin, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, and Paul Dano as The Riddler. The Batman is written by Matt Reeves and Mattson Tomlin, with Reeves directing the film as well.
Reeves previously revealed that the film takes place in the second year of Wayne deciding to become Batman, so the vigilante is still green and figuring out what it means to be a hero in Gotham. With no less than four infamous villains being pulled from the comics and planted on the big screen for this movie, Batman will have plenty to handle.
The official synopsis follows:
“Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman, striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City,” reads the synopsis. “With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth, Lt. James Gordon — amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.
When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.”
The Batman currently has a release date of March 4, 2022. Check out the new trailer below!
