An official synopsis has been released for the upcoming Matthew Reeves “The Batman”. The film stars Robert Pattinson and is not connected to the DC Cinematic Universe (if that’s even still a thing).
“The Batman” hits theaters on March 4, 2022. Check out the new synopsis below from Warner Bros.
Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) — 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.
ICYMI, some new footage from the upcoming film was found on the “Reinventing Gordon” featurette. This is part of the animated “Batman: Year One” Commemorative Edition. The Edition became available November 9th on 4K Ultra HD. You can purchase it now at Amazon.com.
