“Two years of chasing the streets like Batman (Robert Pattinson), instilling fear in the hearts of criminals, took Bruce Wayne to the shadow of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies – Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis) and Lieutenant James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) – among the corrupt network of officials and prominent figures in the city, the lone vigilante has established himself as the only embodiment of vengeance among his dear citizens.
When an assassin targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic manipulations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the world’s greatest sleuth on an investigation into the underworld, where he meets characters like Selina Kyle / Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot / Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro) and Edward Nashton / Riddler (Paul Dano).
As the evidence begins to draw closer to the truth and the scale of the criminal’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and deliver justice for the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City. .
Recall that ‘The Batman’ should be released on March 4 of next year.
In an interview, Reeves commented that the feature film will be different from previous films and will not come across as a traditional origin story like we’ve seen in the past. As he explained, the film will reference its origins, showing a much more emotional and complex perspective.
“I felt like we had seen a lot of origin stories for the character. It seems like things are going deeper and deeper into that fantasy, and I was like, ‘Well, a place where we didn’t go found it the way the first year comics do, stepping right into a young Batman, not being an origin tale, but by referring to its origins and shaking it up to the heart. You can make your story really practical, but I also thought this might be the most touching Batman movie ever made. “
In the scenes shown at the convention, it is possible to notice the dark aesthetic
In addition to Pattinson in the lead role, the cast includes Andy Serkis (Alfred), Zoe Kravitz (Catwoman), Jeffrey Wright (Commissioner Gordon), John Turturro (Carmine Falcone), Peter Skarsgaard, Jayme Lawson, Gil Perez-Abraham and brothers Max and Charlie Carver.
