The Batman movie synopsis
The Batman‘s new movie synopsis by Warner Bros. describes Bruce Wayne’s Batman as the World’s Greatest Detective, with the movie being directed by Matt Reeves and serving as a reboot of the Batman movie franchise after Ben Affleck’s version of Batman.
The movie sees Robert Pattinson‘s character set during his second year of crime-fighting, trying his best to fight the corruption in Gotham while facing one of his many and most famous nemeses in the comics, The Riddler.
The new movie will see characters like Selina Kyle aka Catwoman (portrayed by Zoe Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin (portrayed by Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (portrayed by John Turturro), and The Riddler (portrayed by Paul Dano) being introduced.
Filming for The Batman was not without its difficulties, with the production crew struggling to do so because of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the movie, which was originally planned for a release in June 2021, ended up being pushed back to March 2022.
Director Matt Reeves previously spoke about his desire to delve deeper into the “detective” side of the superhero, taking a sidestep away from the direction of previous movie iterations – with many fans being eager to see the finished product.
And with the Riddler being confirmed as the main villain of the upcoming movie, paired with the appearance of Catwoman, fans are excited to see how Robert Pattinson’s Batman pairs up with Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman, forming a relationship with someone from the criminal underworld; as the Dark Knight tries to take down his enemies.
The Batman is set to be finished and will be hitting theaters on March 4 next year.
