What the story is about

It’s more than a call, it’s a warning. Warner Bros. Pictures presents The Batman from director Matt Reeves, starring Robert Pattinson as Gotham City’s well-known crime fighter and his alter ego, the reclusive billionaire Bruce Wayne. For two years, Bruce Wayne (Robert Pattinson) has guarded the streets of Gotham City as the Batman. He has become a terror to criminals, learning the dark side of the city.

With only a few loyal allies – Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis) and Inspector James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) – in a city where corruption is rampant, the lone hero symbolizes revenge to ordinary citizens. When a killer sadistically targets Gotham’s elite, a trail of cryptic clues leads “World’s Greatest Detective” to the underworld, where he comes into contact with Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro) and Edward Nashton/the Riddler (Paul Dano).

As the evidence begins to become clearer, his opponent’s grand plans come to light. Batman must forge new alliances, unmask the culprit and deal with the abuse of power and corruption that Gotham City has suffered from for so long.
