The Batman is finally out in theaters for general release, and it’s time to start discussing it.
Did it live up to your hopes? Underwhelm? Where would you rank it overall in DC films?
Sound off in the comments and let us know!
Couple of quick rules:
- Beyond this point consider everything a spoiler if you haven’t seen the film.
- Batman doesn’t take kindly to people being cruel to others.
- If someone’s opinion is different than yours, that doesn’t mean you need to wish them ill.
Have a good time everyone! There will be a second discussion post for the general release that will be published on Friday morning!
Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (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 (Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (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 (Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Farrell), Carmine Falcone (Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (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.
Joining Robert Pattinson in The Batman will be Paul Dano (The Riddler), Zoe Kravitz (Catwoman), Colin Farrell (The Penguin), John Turturro (Carmine Falcone), Jeffrey Wright (James Gordon), Andy Serkis (Alfred Pennyworth), and more. Matt Reeves serves as both writer and director.
The Batman is now in general theatrical release, and will arrive on HBO Max on April 19, 2022.
