WARNING – THE BATMAN SPOILERS AHEAD.
The movie has already raked in over approximately £97 million at the Box Office, meaning it is already the UK second most successful release this year.
After a year long coronavirus related delay, fans of the Caped Crusader finally got to see British actor Pattinson in the role of The Batman, as he pits his wits against two of his most well known arch enemies - The Riddler and The Penguin.
With an epic runtime of 2 hours 55 minutes, The Batman transforms audiences back to Bruce Wayne’s early years as the masked vigilante, taking place just two years after the birth of Wayne’s Batman.
Alongside Pattinson, the film stars Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, Ruby Sparks) in the role of Batman’s main protagonist The Riddler - an unhinged, former orphan boy who, with the help of a small online community, is desperate to take down the city of Gotham and expose the corruption which lives beneath its dark underbelly.
Colin Farrell also appears, though he is almost unrecognisable as Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin, with the Irish actor donning prosthetic make-up to transform him into the legendary comic book villain, while Zoe Kravitz excels as the Bat’s love interest and partner in vengeance, Catwoman.
The movie has been heralded by critics and film fans alike, most of whom have praised the blockbuster a huge success, even ranking at 92% on highly respected film review website Rotten Tomatoes.
