From The Mystery Man to Catwoman via the Penguin, immersed in Gotham City.
The Mystery Man, from prison to streaming
The Sphinx, the Riddler, Edward Nigma or The Mystery Man, whatever you like, will obviously be the big bad in The batman. Arrested (on purpose?) By the police and Commissioner Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) at the start of the trailer, the bad guy played by Paul Dano – whose face you never see – seems to spend time in prison, where Batman tries moreover to question him on his Machiavellian plan (we will come back to this below). But a stealthy image also shows it on the news, in breaking news on a giant television screen, with a mask and this caption: ” The serial killer live stream “. How many people died from the serial killer? What crimes did he commit? ” It’s a real powder keg, and Riddler is the spark », Says Bruce Wayne, while a factory seems to explode.
A well-oiled plan
What is the plan of the Mystery Man? Difficult to say if we see Bruce Wayne or the Riddler in this image, in any case it contains several tracks. We can read in particular ” no more lies, Colson “(Gotham City District Attorney Gil Colson),” my father’s sins “(Bruce’s?),” Savage “(The character of Vandal savage ?), ” Mitchell (Donald Mitchell Jr., the mayor of the city, whom the Riddler could have killed)… Many fans speculate and think that the plot could draw inspiration from both the arcs of the comics Silence and The Owls Court. A priori, we should not know much more on the subject before the release of The batman.
The Catwoman Disorder
” We might not be so different »Says Selina Kyle / Catwoman (played by Zoë Kravitz) to Batman, stroking his cheek. As always, the character will come to trouble the Dark Knight, and it is very likely that this new incarnation will have a mission that will put him in the wheel. In some comics, Selina is the illegitimate daughter of Gotham Mafia godfather Carmine Falcone (John Turturro). What to create a hell of a mess if Batman and Catwoman do not tune their violins.
A Batman more deadly than ever
The coolest shots from the trailer The batman are those where the superhero beats the villain, even more violently than in the films of Christopher Nolan. ” My fate is indifferent to me “Robert Pattinson’s Batman promises. We would tend to take him at his word, as he rushes into the crowd without asking any questions, often getting bullets in the chest. Not enough to stop him (obviously we make excellent bulletproof vests at Wayne Enterprises). And the Dark Knight isn’t afraid to beat up a dozen guys at the same time, if the start of the trailer is to be believed. Suicidal Batou? We sign immediately.
The role of the Penguin
Absolutely unrecognizable, Colin Farrell embodies a version of the Penguin very different from that of Danny DeVito in his time. My broken mouth might not last long: the actor himself had confided to have only a small role in The batman, and the end of the trailer seems to promise an end at the hands of the Dark Knight, after an explosive chase. After all, why bother with a Penguin when you have a Mystery Man?
