Movies to Watch in 2022 | The Batman


One of the most anticipated superhero movies next year is The Batman, helmed by Matt Reeves, the guy who gave us the bonkers monster film Cloverfield in 2008 and a bunch of Planet of the Apes movies. Robert Pattinson (The Lighthouse) stars as Gotham City’s vigilante detective, Batman, and billionaire Bruce Wayne.

Also in the star-studded ensemble as Gotham’s famous and infamous cast of characters are Zoë Kravitz (Mad Max: Fury Road) as Selina Kyle aka Catwoman; Paul Dano (12 Years a Slave) as Edward Nashton aka the Riddler; Jeffrey Wright (the Hunger Games films) as the GCPD’s James Gordon; John Turturro (the Transformers films) as Carmine Falcone; Peter Sarsgaard (Black Mass) as Gotham D.A. Gil Colson; Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk) as Officer Stanley Merkel; Jayme Lawson (Farewell Amor) as mayoral candidate Bella Reál; with Andy Serkis (the Planet of the Apes films) as Alfred; and Colin Farrell (Dumbo) as Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin.

The Batman was written by Matt Reeves & Peter Craig.  Reeves and Dylan Clark (the Planet of the Apes films) are producing the film, with Simon Emanuel, Michael E. Uslan, Walter Hamada and Chantal Nong Vo serving as executive producers.  Reeves’ behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar-nominated director of photography Greig Fraser (Dune); his Planet of the Apes production designer, James Chinlund; editors William Hoy (the Planet of the Apes films) and Tyler Nelson (Rememory); Oscar-winning VFX supervisor Dan Lemmon (The Jungle Book); Oscar-nominated SFX supervisor Dominic Tuohy (1917, Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker); Oscar-nominated sound mixer Stuart Wilson (1917, the Star Wars franchise); Oscar-winning costume designer Jacqueline Durran (1917) and costume designers Glyn Dillon (the Star Wars franchise) and David Crossman (1917, the Star Wars franchise); hair designer Zoe Tahir (No Time to Die, Spectre); and Oscar-nominated makeup designer Naomi Donne (1917).
