Warner Brothers reveals official detailed plot synopsis for The Batman
As if we weren't excited enough already...
Arguably THE most anticipated movie of 2022, the folks at Warner Bros. have been very clever about keeping the plot details for The Batman really close to their chests.
Two big trailers in, we're barely three months out from the movie's release, and we're still none the wiser of the actual machinations of everyone involved. We know that The Riddler is up to no good, we know that The Batman is trying to stop him, but that is pretty much it.
However, Warrners has decided to shed a little light on proceedings, by revealing a detailed description for the set-up of the plot in The Batman.
The official synopsis is as follows:
"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."
We know we've said this before, based from the first trailer, but it sounds a lot like David Fincher's classic serial killer thriller Se7en, doesn't it?
Yep, we're officially more excited than ever.
The Batman will arrive in Irish cinemas on 4 March 2022.
