More than a year of stalking the streets as the Batman (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 (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 (Zoë Kravitz), Oz, 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.
Also starring alongside Pattinson (Tenet, The Lighthouse) as Gotham’s famous and infamous cast of characters are Peter Sarsgaard (The Magnificent Seven, Interrogation) as Gotham D.A. Gil Colson and Jayme Lawson (Farewell Amor) as mayoral candidate Bella Reál.
“I wanted to lean hard into the early Bob Kane and Bill Finger stories in which Batman was solving crimes as a means of describing Gotham as an incredibly corrupt place. So, I came up with the idea of having the character he is interacting with — the case he is involved with — being a new iteration of The Riddler as a serial killer who is targeting so-called pillars of society,” said Reeves.
“And in the wake of the murders, through the crime scenes and cyphers he leaves behind directed at The Batman, The Riddler is revealing the truth about these individuals. In doing so, I felt that Batman’s journey to solve the case could also serve to uncover for him the history of corruption in Gotham.
“And because the cyphers are left for him, it gets personal and rocks him to his core. This is not a Batman in control. This is a Batman in a little bit of a freefall.”
Reeves (the Planet of the Apes franchise) directed from a screenplay by Reeves & Peter Craig, based on characters from DC. Batman was created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. Dylan Clark (the Planet of the Apes films) and Reeves produced the film, with Michael E. Uslan, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo and Simon Emanuel serving as executive producers.
The movie’s behind-the-scenes creative team included Oscar-nominated director of photography Greig Fraser (Dune, Lion); Reeves’ Planet of the Apes production designer, James Chinlund, and editor, William Hoy; editor Tyler Nelson (Rememory); and Oscar-winning costume designer Jacqueline Durran (1917, Little Women, Anna Karenina).
The 6th & Idaho/Dylan Clark Productions production is set to open in theaters in North America March 4, 2022 and internationally beginning 2 March 2022.
The Batman is rated PG-13 by the MPA for strong violent and disturbing content, drug content, strong language, and some suggestive material.
