SYNOPSIS

More than a year 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 (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 (Zoë Kravitz), Oz, 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.
