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.
