Warner Bros. Japan has dropped another trailer for The Batman, showing off the long-awaited comic book film starring Twilight alum Robert Pattinson. The sneak peek, which dropped on Sunday night, features several never-before-seen shots of Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, both in and out of his crimefighting costume.

The newly-released Japanese trailer for The Batman also teases the live-action return of The Riddler, played by There Will Be Blood and Little Miss Sunshine actor Paul Dano. The ominous footage gives fans a taste of his encounters with the titular superhero before the two go head-to-head on the big screen. Check out the trailer below.

2022 is shaping up to be quite a year for blockbusters, with The Batman being one of the most anticipated comic book adaptations in recent memory. Warner Bros. has been testing different cuts of The Batman for quite some time now, but the studio reportedly picked the final version of the movie in the past few weeks.

Here is the official synopsis for The Batman:

Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) — amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.

When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.

Directed by Matt Reeves, the film stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as 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 will hit theaters on March 4, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the Robert Pattinson film, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
