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. With only a few trusted allies 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 Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman, Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin, Carmine Falcone, and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler. 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.
Starring Robert Pattinson as Batman/Bruce Wayne, the cast for The Batman also includes Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as Riddler, Colin Farrell as The Penguin, John Turturro as crime boss Carmine Falcone, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth. The film was released into theaters on March 4th 2022 to great box office and critical success, becoming the biggest post-pandemic release; making slightly more than Spiderman: No Way Home domestically on it’s opening weekend.
Warner Bros/DC have recently delayed their next Bat-verse movies The Flash and in Batgirl into 2023 which are due to see the return of both Micheal Keaton and Ben Affleck to the role. Meanwhile there were also special collectors edition 4k releases of other titles from the Batman filmography announced.
