The Batman Trailer Sets Up Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz as Partners in Crime


A new trailer for The Batman has arrived as a surprise. (English only, unfortunately there are no Hindi, Tamil or Telugu versions.) Late Monday, Warner Bros. has unveiled a third trailer for the Robert Pattinson-directed film. Batman film that expands on what we know about the Dark Knight’s next adventure. The Batman trailer hints at how the Riddler/Edward Nashton (Paul Dano) will play with Batman/Bruce Wayne (Pattinson) – he knows more about him than he’s letting on – and hints at the family secrets Wayne will uncover during his investigation. And in the process, Batman will have to make new allies, primarily in Catwoman/Selina Kyle (Zoë Kravitz), if he is to bring Riddler to justice.

“Bruce Wayne? I wouldn’t bother you here, but your people keep telling me you’re not available,” Gotham City mayoral candidate Bella Reál (Jayme Lawson) told Wayne at the debut of the new trailer for The Batman. Meanwhile, the trailer shows us why he’s “unavailable”. As we all know, Wayne has a second life as a detective and vigilante. “You know, you could really do more for this town,” Reál continues elsewhere. “Your family has a history of philanthropy, but as far as I know, you don’t do anything.” Well, to be fair, Wayne does philanthropy at his way – if that matters.

“The Riddler is asking for you,” Gotham City Police Department Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) told Batman before Wayne’s butler and mentor, Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), said, “The killer left this for Batman. Why is he writing to you? The Riddler (Dano) is genuinely interested in Batman and it seems he knows his true identity, given the following line in The Batman trailer: “The Riddler’s last. It’s all about the Waynes,” Catwoman (Kravitz) says as she introduces herself. “If we don’t get up, no one will.” Batman tells her she has a lot of cats and she replies that she has “a weakness for stray cats”.

“The Bat and the Cat. He’s got a nice ring,” Catwoman says elsewhere, as we see the two engage in punches that seem to have an erotic side to them. Alfred asks if she’s one of his new friends, and Wayne says he’s not so sure. “I’m just here to unmask the truth about this cesspool we call a city,” Riddler says in the new The Batman trailer as we get another look at his masked face. Riddler tells Batman he’s one of them, and when the latter wonders how, Riddler adds, “Oh, you really aren’t as smart as I thought you were, Bruce Wayne.” There, my earlier assumption turned out to be true.

The Batman trailer then goes up a notch with more action snippets, while Wayne accuses Alfred of lying to him for several years, Gordon’s senior wonders if Batman himself is “involved there- in it,” Catwoman wonders who Batman is down there and what he’s hiding, and Wayne begs Selina not to waste her life. “Don’t worry honey, I’ve got nine,” Catwoman replies cheekily. Elsewhere, the Riddler crashes a funeral which Wayne attends and unleashes a riddle: “It can be cruel, poetic or blind. But when it’s denied, it’s your violence that you can find.

In addition to Pattinson, Kravitz, Dano, Wright, Serkis, and Lawson, The Batman also stars John Turturro as Gotham City crime lord Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gotham District Attorney Gil Colson, Colin Farrell as rising crime lord Penguin/Oswald Cobblepot, Barry Keoghan as GCPD Officer Stanley Merkel, and Alex Ferns as GCPD Commissioner Pete Savage. Gil Perez-Abraham, twins Charlie and Max Carver, Rupert Penry-Jones and Con O’Neill also have roles. Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes) is the director, co-writer with Peter Craig (The Unforgivable) and producer with Dylan Clark.

The Batman will be released on March 4, 2022 in cinemas worldwide. After a theatrical window of 45 days, The Batman will be available on April 19, 2022 on HBO Max.
