Batman is shown joining forces with Catwoman aka Selina Kyle with one end goal in mind.
Next year will be huge for Batman fans. The wait is getting even more exciting with the release of the latest trailer featuring the relationship between the two superheroes of Gotham.
The two-and-a-half-minute teaser includes the role Zoë Kravitz's Catwoman is going to play in the reboot of the Batman film. It is aptly named The bat and The Cat trailer that also stated: "Vengeance equals justice for both the Bat and the Cat." Robert Pattinson plays the titular hero, who is actually the reclusive billionaire Bruce Wayne in disguise.
In the trailer, we see Pattinson's Bruce approached by Bella Reál (Jayme Lawson), the mayoral candidate as she informs him that he is not doing enough for the city despite his wealth and influence. “Your family has a history of philanthropy, but as far as I can tell, you’re not doing anything,” she says as clips of Batman in action intercuts their conversation. The premise of the film is Batman pursuing the Riddler in his second year of fighting crime. The serial killer targets elite Gotham City citizens. In the process of his pursuit, Batman uncovers corruption that connects to his own family as well. He is then forced to make new allies to catch the Riddler and bring the corrupt to justice.
Batman is shown joining forces with Catwoman aka Selina Kyle with the end goal in mind. The two are shown in action as she notes: “The bat and the cat — it’s got a nice ring.” We also get to see the cat-lady persona as her cats gather around Batman's feet to which she comments, "I have a thing about strays." When he later warns her to not throw her life away she says, "Don’t worry, honey, I got nine of ’em." But we will be seeing more of Kyle than her alter ego because Kravitz wanted to focus more on Kyle's emotional journey and not have the Catwoman persona cause a distraction.
In addition to Pattinson and Kravitz, the film will also star Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Lieutenant James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as Oswald "Oz" Cobblepot/Penguin. The movie is directed by Matt Reeves, who also penned the screenplay with Peter Craig. Inspired by the comics Year One, The Long Halloween, and Ego, the films will explore Batman as a detective, different from his portrayal in previous Batman films.
