The much-awaited DC flick finally hit the theatres on March 4, 2022, with raving reviews from critics worldwide. On the other hand, fans have been praising the performances and direction by Matt Reeves. Filmibeat review describes the film as a bridge between "the golden age of Batman movies and what DCEU is about to become. The Batman heavily relies on Gotham's looming dark legacy and uses it to bring out the finest details in the story."
The Batman follows the vigilante during early years of him striking fear on the streets of Gotham. Twenty years after the death of his parents, Batman encounters The Riddler who uncovers the dark truth about the Wayne family while revealing the city's secrets. The cape crusader joins hands with Catwoman to find The Riddler's true identity and put him behind bars.
The film marked Robert Pattinson's DC debut as Bruce Wayne and the Cape Crusader Batman. Other than Robert Pattinson, the film also stars Zoe Kravitz, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Wright, Paul Dano, Andy Serkis, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, and others.
Notably, DC has few more awaited releases coming in 2022 including Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam, Jason Momoa's Aquaman 2, and Ezra Miller's awaited solo release Flash.
