The synopsis mainly teases Robert Pattinson’s much intense portrayal of the Dark Knight, describing this version of the Gotham hero as a disillusioned and desperate vigilante who struggles with controlling his rage.

“It 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,” reads The Batman synopsis. “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 is directed by Matt Reeves from a screenplay he co-wrote with Peter Craig. The superhero film stars Robert Pattinson as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano as Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as GCPD’s James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gotham D.A. Gil Colson, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Ferrell as Oswald Cobblepot/ Penguin. It will also feature Barry Keoghan, Jayme Lawson, Alex Ferns, and twins Max and Charlie Carver.

During last year’s DC FanDome, Reeves confirmed that the movie will focus on Bruce Wayne’s second year as Batman, and, per Walter Hamada, that the film is set in a different universe separate from the Justice League DCEU characters. The filmmaker also previously teased that they will be telling a detective story that follows a series of murders that open up the history of corruption in Gotham and how Bruce’s family is linked.

The Batman is being produced by Reeves and Dylan Clark (the Planet of the Apes films) with Simon Emanuel, Michael E. Uslan, Walter Hamada, and Chantal Nong Vo serving as executive producers.
