We may have a new Spider-Man movie this week, but the first few months of 2022 will belong to The Batman. Director Matt Reeves is taking Gotham City outside of the DC Extended Universe, with a new Batman (Robert Pattinson). There are also updated takes on Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Riddler (Paul Dano), and Penguin (Colin Farrell). While Warner Bros. will likely debut a new trailer before the end of the year, Warner Bros. Japan has already beaten them to the punch. And if you don’t mind some Japanese language voiceovers to start, there’s some new footage as well.
Here’s the official synopsis from Warner Bros. Pictures.
“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—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, 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.”
The Batman will hit theaters on March 4, 2022.
