In 2022 the superhero movie directed by Matt Reeves appeared on the cinema screen after initial delays of two years. Eventually, the series made the theatrical fourth-highest-grossing film of 2022 with $770 million. It stars Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz. Moreover, the series is said to have two television spin-off series. Initially, Ben Affleck worked for the series and was going to appear as a lead in 2013 but dropped off later. Ultimately, the 2022 movie went to Pattinson in May 2019. Moreover, Reeves worked on the movie beforehand and ensured to go for the more detective side of The Batman.
After the movie ends, there’s this scene of The Joker and Riddler sharing a cell at Arkham Asylum, a scene that ends with lots of speculation among the audience. However, Director Reeves revealed in an interview that this scene was cut too but later considered keeping it for the final cut. There’s another deleted scene from the movie where Batman meets The Joker in jail. Talking about the same, Reeves said that this is the intro or coming of the great villain in The Batman world, The Joker. However, Batman vs Joker is part of the DC Universe. Precisely, the Joker has not formed yet and is to become an iconic Batman Villain, said Reeves.
The Batman or Bruce Wayne works with the Gotham City police department to unmask the murder committed by a villain named Riddler. Riddler, who murder the Gotham City mayor Don Mitchell Jr. has now killed commissioner Pete Savage and leaves another message for Batman. Meanwhile, James Gordon, Lieutenant of Gotham City Police Department, discovers a message that the Riddler left for Batman. In her mission of finding her missing lover and roommate, Annika, Selina, or Catwoman meets Batman. Hence, the series unwinds with the trail of the diffusing Bomb that’s going to destroy Gotham city. Batman and Catwoman work together to save the city.
The Batman villains made an interesting and superficial impact like a comic book. Riddler is the most dangerously smartest villain who kills people and reveals their dark sides to the world. At the time when he kills mayor Don Mitchell Jr., he is the corrupt mayor and villain who helps villain Carmine Falcone expand his criminal empire. Later on in the movie, the face of the mayor is revealed. Although Riddler is the primary villain among others in The Batman movie, the most dangerous and deadliest of all is Joker. Nevertheless, his appearance and manipulative laughs at the end of The Batman shook most viewers. In Arkham Hospital, he began a conversation with Riddler in the cell next to him to feed his manipulative agenda of ruling back and destroying the city. However, there was little in the way of Joker’s actual devil power forecast on the screen. And as Reeves said, it is not formed yet. Joker did prove that he was powerful in a manipulative way and is setting up Riddler as a future ally. But the movie scene ends in the jail where he’s locked up the side Joker didn’t go to trial on the screen. But fans are expecting or speculating the comeback of Joker in the future season of The Batman movie.
Eventually, The Batman premiered at Lincoln Center, New York, on March 1, 2022. Later, it was theatrically released worldwide on March 4, 2022.
