Although The batman It has long since finished its filming, the production of Matt Reeves has managed to keep everything important of its synopsis a secret. Despite this, with each revelation, fans cannot help but make theories about what this new vision of the overcast of Gotham City can await us.
The most recent musings of the bat fans indicate that we have very likely been misled as to the potential importance of a villain within the film. While we’ve been told for a long time – or one could even say that the public has been educated to think – that Colin Farrell’s The Penguin will have a very small stake in the film, now many are questioning that claim.
And is that after reading a new official synopsis shared by Warner, there are some details about The batman that could well echo some stories from the comics that would lead us down the path of an unexpected and unorthodox alliance.
The official synopsis reads like this:
“Two years of prowling the streets as Batman (Robert Pattinson), and striking fear in the hearts of criminals, has brought Bruce Wayne into the shadows of Gotham. With only a handful of allies, Alfred Pennyworth, James Gordon, among the city’s corrupt network of officers, the lone vigilante has established himself as the embodiment of vengeance among his fellow citizens. When an assassin targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic events, a trail of clues sends the world’s best detective on an investigation through the criminal world, where he encounters the likes of Selina Kyle, Oswald Cobblepot, Carmine Falcone and Edward Nashton. As the evidence begins to bring him closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must begin new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has plagued Gotham. “
A simple paragraph has sparked several theories among fans. In the first place, the line “Batman must start new alliances” has led some to think that the vigilante will have to unite with one of the villains of the film in order to solve the mystery. The logical choice for many could be Selina Kyle as we have seen in the movie trailers. However, others have noted (via) that the delivery exists Batman # 58where Oswald Cobblepot teams up with Bruce Wayne to stop a mysterious villain.
This leads us to theorize about another twist in the history of The batman that perhaps we had not seen before. Throughout the propaganda of the film we have thought that the main antagonist of the show is The Riddle of Paul Dano (Edward Nashton). However, the official synopsis places him as one more within the bat’s detective path to be able to stop the attacks of another character that we still do not know. Is it possible that Barry Keoghan is behind all this?
In previous weeks a rumor emerged that Keoghan’s true role is none other than the Joker. A comment on Twitter from his brother confirmed that the actor would play the Gotham City crime clown and said “it’s crazy.” Nothing about that has been said through official channels, but now it is possible that we face a master plan of the sadistic clown.
Of course, once we’re done dealing with the theories of Spider-Man: No Way Home, is when we will have time to unmask all the secrets that the Matt Reeves film hides. Fortunately, there is still some way to achieve it. The batman It will hit theaters on March 4, 2022.
