Yesterday, Warner Bros. released a new trailer of “The Batman,” starring Robert Pattinson as the vigilante hero and Zoe Kravitz as ally Selina Kyle (Catwoman).
The trailer focuses on the relationship between two characters, featuring sequences of Catwoman and Batman fighting on another and more intense, coy exchanges.
“You got a lot of cats,” Batman tells Kyle, visiting the antihero’s home. “I have a thing about strays,” she responds, holding what seems to be a glass of milk.
Paul Dano’s villainous Riddler in the trailer also takes on a prominent role. Warner Bros. keeps the antagonist somewhat hidden in marketing for the movie, focusing more on the question mark signatures, dead bodies, and video clues he leaves in his murderous wake.
“I’m just here to unmask the truth about this cesspool we call a city,” the Riddler says.
In the trailer, Batman is navigating a flooded Gotham underground, explosions along with the metropolis’ coastline, and an attack at what looks like a political rally. The trailer concludes with Catwoman and Batman fighting off a horde of armed men on a foggy industrial catwalk.
“Selina, don’t throw your life away,” Batman warns. “Don’t worry, honey,” Kyle replies. “I’ve got nine of them.”
In company with Dano, Pattinson, and Kravitz, “The Batman” also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Colin Farrell, Andy Serkis, John Turturro, Jayme Lawson, and Jeffrey Wright. Matt Reeves serves as co-writer and director, alongside Peter Craig. On March 4, 2022, the film is set to hit theaters.
