Who’s in the cast of The Batman?

The film of course has a star cast, here’s who we know so far:

  • Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman – A billionaire socialite and heir of Wayne Enterprises who dedicates himself to protecting Gotham City from its criminal underworld as a highly trained, masked vigilante.
  • Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman – Zoe, who previously voiced the character in The Lego Batman Movie (2017), was chosen over a number of actresses. Zoe says she is drawing inspiration from Michelle Pfeiffer, who portrayed the character in Batman Returns (1992).
  • Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon – The Gotham City Police Department commissioner and an ally of Batman.
  • Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth – Jeremy Irons portrayed the character in previous DCEU films but now Lord of the Rings star Andy is taking over.
  • Colin Farrell as Oswald “Oz” Cobblepot /Penguin – Danny DeVito played the role in Batman Returns.

What is the plot for The Batman?

Very little is known about the plot of The Batman.

However, the film is reported to be set in the ’90s, early on in Bruce Wayne’s costumed career.

This could indicate that R-Patz is playing a younger version of Ben Affleck’s Batman.

Batman v Superman established that the Waynes were murdered in 1981, meaning Bruce would have first suited up as Batman in the early or mid-’90s.
