The film The Batman by Matt Reeves remains a complete mystery despite having seen two trailers, several images and knowing a first synopsis. The publication of a new synopsis allows us learn a little more about the new installment of the Dark Knight. The story centers on Batman’s Year Two and offers new details about James Gordon, also known as Commissioner Gordon.
Matt Reeves previously revealed that The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, will tell a story of the Year Two of the vigilante. In other words, you have some experience, but you still have a lot of work ahead of you. As for James Gordon, will start as a lieutenant and not a commissioner, just like we saw in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins.
“Two years stalking the streets as Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear in the hearts of criminals, has brought Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies – Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) – among the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-ranking figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole incarnation of revenge among his fellow citizens.“
Synopsis expands with new details about Gotham: “When an assassin targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an underworld investigation, where he encounters characters like Selina Kyle / aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravtiz), Oswald Cobblepot / aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro) and Edward Nashton / aka The Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to approach home and the scale of the author’s plans becomes apparent, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and do justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.“.
Everything that defines Batman is in the new synopsis: corruption, darkness, enemies, murders … The Batman is a film that promises to show a darker and more detective side of the Dark Knight. Furthermore, he adds that the vigilante is a newbie, so he will also have to deal with his ghosts and forge the moral code that we’ve all seen in movies and comics.
Is this Batman the craziest and most terrifying we’ve seen so far? Here we collect 5 reasons why we think so.
The Batman will be released on March 4, 2022.
