Fans of Batman can now read the script for the most recent major motion picture adaptation of The Dark Knight.
As part of its Read The Screenplay series, Deadline has made available the script for The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves.
Reeves and Peter Craig wrote the script for The Batman.
The movie centres on a budding Batman (Robert Pattinson), who teams up with Jim Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) to stop the Riddler, a notorious serial killer (Paul Dano).
As a result, Batman teams up with Catwoman (Zo Kravitz). Also agreeing to assist Catwoman in finding her lost companion Annika Kosolov is Batman.
Batman and Gordon also have to contend with Carmine Falcone’s corruption in Gotham City.
A deleted scene from the movie in which Batman visits Arkham Asylum to speak with the Joker (Barry Keoghan) is also included in the screenplay. Batman asks the criminal in the scenario what kind of person he thinks the Riddler could be.
The Academy has so far given The Batman more of a chance because three times it was listed on the 10 shortlists they released for various Oscar categories.
The movie is on the shortlists for Makeup and Hairstyling, Sound, and Visual Effects, however Michael Giacchino’s score was conspicuously left off, much to the chagrin of fans.
