The Batman follows the early days of the Cape Crusader, facing the Riddler’s anarchist mindset
It’s been two years since Bruce Wayne became Gotham’s dark knight, whose sole desire is to rid the city of criminals. His persona as cape crusader frightens the vindictive goons. The narrative transitions when the Riddler begins to murder Gotham’s famous personals one by one, and each victim carries a cryptic clue to the subsequent murder. This pits Batman and Lieutenant James Gordon against the enigmatic Riddler’s serial killings. Struck by the cryptic clue and the heinous methods of the Riddler’s crime, it’s up to Batman to end the Riddler’s anarchist mindset.
Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Lieutenant James Gordon, Andy Serkis as Alfred, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle, Colin Farell as Oswald Cobblepot, and John Turturro as Carmine Falcone.
