Warner Bros. has released a new TV spot for The Batman, which reveals previously unseen glimpses at Matt Reeves’ new take on the Dark Knight.
Titled “Game,” the 30-second spot also highlights the noir tone that Reeves has been teasing, and offers a better look at the cat-and-mouse games between Batman (Robert Pattinson) and The Riddler (Paul Dano).
Bruce Wayne notices strange symbols all over Gotham City, as The Riddler compels him to follow along with his elaborate game, taunting him as he does it.
Reeves’ near-three-hour epic will emphasize Batman’s reputation as “The World’s Greatest Detective,” as he tries to stop the serial killer.
Here’s the teaser:
The brief Warner Bros. blurb reads:
“In his second year of fighting crime, Batman uncovers corruption in Gotham City that connects to his own family while facing a serial killer known as the Riddler.”
The Batman is expected to kick off a new universe that also includes HBO Max shows. One of which is a procedural following the exploits of the Gotham City police department and the second a Scarface-style crime story about the crime lord Penguin.
The Batman also stars Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Penguin, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Barry Keoghan as a GCPD officer.
The film will arrive in theaters on March 4th, and on streaming 45 days later, as a part of Warner Bros. restructured theatrical release strategy.
