A new trailer for The Batman has been released showing us a bigger glimpse of Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz) than we’ve seen so far. We’re also getting our deepest look into Paul Dano’s Riddler and how secrets about the Wayne family that Bruce (Robert Pattinson) doesn’t seem to know about are fueling the criminal’s evil acts.
The Wrap offered a breakdown of the trailer, which largely focuses on Bruce Wayne/Batman and Selina Kyle/Catwoman meeting and teaming up against the Riddler. Selina at one point refers to them as “The Bat and the Cat,” which she thinks has a “nice ring.” Hints of a romantic and emotional connection point are shown, with Bruce at one point pleading with Selina not to throw her life away. We also get a brief explanation of Selina’s cat fixation when she says she has “a thing about strays.”
Aside from seeing more of Catwoman, we also get deeper glimpses into the story as a whole. The lead the Riddler is leaving is specifically focused on the Wayne’s, as Selina points out in the trailer, and he is primarily trying to reach out to Batman who he says is part of this. When Batman asks how he is a part of this, Riddler replies, “Oh you’re really not as smart as I thought you were, Bruce Wayne.” We learned in a recent Japanese trailer for the film that Riddler knew Batman’s true identity, and now it’s evident that Wayne’s family history is tied to the Riddler’s crime spree. There are apparent secrets regarding the Wayne family that Bruce doesn’t even know about, as he accuses Alfred of telling him lies for years. We’ll also see Batman facing some opposition with police officers not trusting a vigilante.
Batman and DC fans have been waiting eagerly for this new film which was set to be released this past summer. However, several factors have delayed this film, such as Pattinson testing positive for Covid-19 last year. The film is now set for release on March 4, 2022. It will also be released on HBO Max on April 19, 2022.
