Get Ready for The Batman 2022 at Seventh Dimension!

This week marks the highly-anticipated release of ‘The Batman’ film, directed by Matt Reeves featuring a star-studded cast including Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz and Paul Dano. 

It’s been a long wait for fans near and far, ever since word got out that filming was taking place in Glasgow way back in 2020. Over this time, doubts have been raised online about how well the movie will perform. But, if critics’ reviews are anything to go by (currently 9.1/10 on IMDb), then we think it’s safe to say that we can eagerly look forward to being pleasantly surprised by this brand-new take on DC’s most-loved superhero.

Let’s take a closer look at what we know so far about The Batman 2022:

The Batman 2022: What to Expect

Batman has been a firm favourite for many generations. Stretching from the original TV show in the 1960s, to the famous Christopher Nolan Dark Knight trilogy, Batman has maintained his dominance and sparked fandom all over the world. 

Now, this extensive on-screen history is being expanded with Matt Reeves's The Batman. But what can we expect from Reeves’s approach to the story?

According to the director himself, the story will take place in the second year of Bruce Wayne’s time as Batman. This means it won’t feature the transition from the once-was innocent young boy into the dark and deadly Batman. Instead, the movie will focus on a series of murders that are taking place all around Gotham City, and the challenges Batman faces while trying to right these wrongs all while still figuring out who exactly he is as a crime fighter.

Here’s a plot synopsis by Warner Bros.: “The Batman is an edgy, action-packed thriller that depicts Batman in his early years, struggling to balance rage with righteousness as he investigates a disturbing mystery that has terrorized Gotham. Robert Pattinson delivers a raw, intense portrayal of Batman as a disillusioned, desperate vigilante awakened by the realisation that the anger consuming him makes him no better than the ruthless serial killer he’s hunting.”

Joining Robert Pattinson as Batman is a cast that’s stacked with well-known and experienced actors, including:

  • Paul Dano as The Riddler
  • Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman
  • Colin Farrell as The Penguin
  • John Turturro as Carmine Falcone
  • Jeffrey Wright James Gordon
  • Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth and more.

With a lineup as good as this, we can’t help but get excited about what’s to come! While not everyone was originally supportive of the new cast, you can’t deny that all the trailers have been nothing short of amazing. Here’s the main trailer that well and truly hooked us in: 

…do you see what we mean now? 

All in all, this new movie looks incredibly promising. It has a strong cast, plenty of villains, a great foundation for the storyline, and a good writing team - so fingers crossed Warner Bros. doesn’t disappoint us again!

In stock, we have two Batman comics available for preorder and instant purchase:

Batman: Beyond the White Knight #1 (Of 8)

Available to buy now at a reduced price of £3.25 instead of £4.50 - ‘Batman: Beyond the White Knight #1’ is a thrilling sequel to the blockbuster comic book hits ‘Batman: White Knight’ and ‘Batman: Curse of the White Knight’. In this comic, writer and artist Sean Murphy invites the audience to go beyond the Gotham they know to discover an engrossing new take on the city and its heroes.

In the story, Batman is behind bars, but the real criminals still roam free. Gotham Motors CEO Derek Powers has seized control of the Wayne family’s assets and is using them to transform the Gotham Terrorist Oppression Unit and the city they’ve sworn to protect. 

A new Batman has emerged in Powers’s city, causing uncontrollable havoc that only Bruce can foresee. It’s time to destroy the mantle for good, but he’ll need one of his forgotten sons’ help to do so…enter Jason Todd: the first Robin?!

Batman: Killing Time #1 (Of 6)

In this comic, which is available to preorder a reduced price of £3.25 instead of £4.50, the ‘Batman: Killing Time #1’ follows the story of three villains, one Dark Knight, and a deadly heist gone wrong. 

The blockbuster team of Tom King and David Marquez bring an action-packed tale of a young Batman desperate to recover his most prized possession from a host of violent rogues (Catwoman, The Riddler, and The Penguin) before the clock strikes the Killing Time. A great, gripping read for any fan to immerse themselves in.
