An anonymous source who claims to have read the first third of THE BATMAN‘s screenplay posted details to Imgur. According to the user, Matt Reeves’s version of the Dark Knight is “very noir” and is narrated by Bruce Wayne (Robert Pattinson) “in the style of Maltese Falcon and the like.” The film will allegedly start with alteration between Batman and Firefly when he starts investigating a series of mystery arsons.
THE BATMAN will reportedly take place during Bruce Wayne’s second year of being Batman which will explain a lot about Pattinson’s suit and look as the vigilant. The Batsuit also seems to feature Samurai armor gauntlets.
The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Golden Globe-winner Jeffrey Wright (Westworld) as Commissioner James Gordon, Zoë Kravitz (Big Little Lies) as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Golden Globe-nominee Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, Golden Globe-nominee Andy Serkis (Black Panther) as Alfred Pennyworth, Golden Globe-winner Colin Farrell (The Gentleman) as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, newcomer Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, 2x Golden Globe-nominee John Turturro (The Night Of) as Carmine Falcone and Golden Globe-nominee Peter Sarsgaard (Green Lantern) as Gil Colson.
