The new trailer for The Batman gives us the best look at the story so far. Bruce’s enemies are multiplying.

This movie is digging deeper than just Batman’s rogue’s gallery. The Riddler has discovered that the Wayne family has skeletons in its closets. Those will have to be confronted.


The last trailer gave us action; this one gave us a glimpse at the story.

Those first thirty seconds do their best to combat the debate about the relevancy of its lead character. We’ll see if the movie can quash it. The trailer also shows that there will be some pockets of humor and romance in all of the darkness, which will be needed.

Opinions of Pattison aside, this is the best ensemble cast for a Batman movie we’ve gotten since Tim Burton’s movies. Zoe Kravitz’s take on Catwoman understands both the character’s power and flirty nature. And I cannot wait to see Paul Dano and Colin Farrell chew scenery.
