Along with those two we also get a comics-art variant by fan-favorite artist Jock. These issues will be going on shelves on December 23.
The Bat and Cat Are Back

Along with these new, better looks at Batman and Catwoman, we also got a great breakdown of the plot with a well-penned synopsis:
Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) — amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.
When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.”
With Ben Affleck being the last to play Batman; Robert Pattinson has a very big cowl to fill as he tries to balance the extrovert playboy millionaire with Bruce’s alter ego; the brooding, rogue crimefighting detective, Batman.
The Batman is directed by Matt Reeves and is scheduled to be released on March 4, 2022.
