OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS

From Warner Bros. Pictures comes Matt Reeves’ “The Batman,” starring Robert Pattinson in the dual role of Gotham City’s vigilante detective and his alter ego, reclusive billionaire Bruce Wayne.

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), and 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.

THE BATMAN is an edgy, action-packed thriller that depicts Batman in his early years, struggling to balance rage with righteousness as he investigates a disturbing mystery that has terrorized Gotham. Robert Pattinson delivers a raw, intense portrayal of Batman as a disillusioned, desperate vigilante awakened by the realization that the anger consuming him makes him no better than the ruthless serial killer he’s hunting.

From Warner Bros. Pictures comes THE BATMAN, with director Matt Reeves at the helm and with Robert Pattinson starring as Gotham City’s vigilante detective, Batman, and reclusive billionaire Bruce Wayne.

HISTORY

THE BATMAN was conceived in 2013 when Ben Affleck signed on to play Batman in BATMAN v SUPERMAN and was officially announced in 2015 prior to BvS‘s release in 2016.

Under the direction of Ben Affleck, the script for THE BATMAN was co-written by Affleck and DC’s Geoff Johns, with BvS scribe Chris Terrio doing a polish.  Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello) was to be the film’s main villain.

After the critical and box office disappointments of BvS and JUSTICE LEAGUE in 2017, Affleck left the project; though it was not announced that he would no longer star in the film as Batman until early 2019.

In February of 2017, it was announced that Matt Reeves would write and direct THE BATMAN and would be a completely new film than the one developed under Affleck.

In January of 2019, it was announced that THE BATMAN would be released on June 25, 2021.

On May 31, 2019, it was officially announced that Robert Pattinson had been cast as Batman/Bruce Wayne in THE BATMAN.

On January 28, 2020, Warner Bros. issued a “Start of Production” press release for THE BATMAN.

On February 13, 2020, director Matt Reeves released a “Camera Test” video that revealed Robert Pattinson as Batman.

Due to COVID-19, THE BATMAN was moved from June of 2021 to October of that year, then finally to March 4, 2022.

THE BATMAN was released domestically on March 4, 2022.

THE ROGUES’ GALLERY

As of January 2020, THE BATMAN will include the following villains: The Penguin, Catwoman, The Riddler, and mob boss Carmine Falcone.

PLOT & TONE

According to Matt Reeves, the writer/director is planning on THE BATMAN being a “noir, detective version of Batman that is point-of-view driven.”

In THE BATMAN, Bruce Wayne/Batman will be 30 years old — give or take — a year or 2.  While not a rookie, he also will not be in his Dark Knight prime.

CONNECTION TO OTHER DC FILMS

THE BATMAN will not be connected in any way to Ben Affleck’s Batman from BvS and JUSTICE LEAGUE.  It is a total reboot of the franchise and not a prequel to BvS/JL.  It also will not have any ties to Todd Phillips’ JOKER starring Joaquin Phoenix.
