Warner Bros released the official synopsis for ‘The Batman’ revealing the film’s tone.
“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.”
‘The Batman’ looks to be the darkest Batman film today. His struggle with anger and the balance of vigilantism is similar to Oliver Queen in ‘Arrow’ season 1. We will see a rogues gallery including Catwomen, Riddler, and Penguin. We predict we will also see Batman’s many “mob boss” villains. ‘The Batman’ will hit theaters on March 4, 2022.
