With 2021 bringing fans a brand new Batman film starring Robert Pattinson, we take you through everything we know so far about the Dark Knight’s next cinematic solo outing.
Although fans recently got their first look at The Batman star Robert Pattinson as the iconic DC Comics hero, there’s plenty we already know about the film ahead of its 2021 release. With rumors pointing to the Long Halloween storyline as the basis for the plot, it seems like Batman will need to use his detective skills more than we’ve ever seen on-screen before if he’s to keep up with the horde of villains already confirmed to appear in The Batman. Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman, Colin Farrell’s Penguin and Paul Dano’s Riddler will all go up against the Caped Crusader, with Kravitz seemingly having a fairly prominent role in the film.
But there’s also some interesting speculation about other villains that might plague this new version of Gotham. Since fans have seen many iterations of the Dark Knight over the years, it’s clear that Matt Reeves is striving to deliver a truly original take on the character. Make sure you watch our video below to discover more about The Batman, its place in the DC universe and how Robert Pattinson’s performance will be unlike anything we’ve seen before!

Full plot details on The Batman are currently under wraps, though the film is known to center around a younger Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. Following the Caped Crusader during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector, the film will make use of the Dark Knight’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous adaptations. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
The Batman is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on October 1, 2021.
