Plot summary

What is The Batman movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Batman" movie plot summary.

On Halloween, Gotham City mayor Don Mitchell (Rupert Penry-Jones) Jr. is murdered by a serial killer calling himself the Riddler. Billionaire Bruce Wayne (Robert Pattinson), who has operated for two years as the vigilante Batman, investigates alongside the Gotham City Police Department (GCPD). Lieutenant James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) discovers that the Riddler left a message for Batman, but commissioner Pete Savage (Alex Ferns) berates him for allowing a vigilante to enter the crime scene and forces Batman to leave. The Riddler kills Savage and leaves another message for Batman.
Batman and Gordon discover that the Riddler left a thumb drive in Mitchell's car containing images of Mitchell with a woman, Annika (Hana Hrzic), at the Iceberg Lounge, a nightclub operated by the Penguin, mobster Carmine Falcone's lieutenant. Batman questions the Penguin, who pleads ignorance, but notices that Selina Kyle (Zoë Kravitz), Annika's roommate and girlfriend, works at the club as a waitress. Batman follows Selina home to question Annika, but she disappears, so he sends Selina back to the Iceberg Lounge to search for answers. Through Selina, Batman discovers that Savage was on Falcone's payroll, as is district attorney Gil Colson (Peter Sarsgaard). Selina shuts off communication when Batman presses her about her relationship with Falcone.
The Riddler abducts Colson, straps a timed collar bomb to his neck, and sends him to interrupt Mitchell's funeral. When Batman arrives, the Riddler calls him via Colson's phone and threatens to detonate the bomb if Colson cannot answer three riddles. Batman helps Colson answer the first two, but Colson refuses to answer the third - the name of the informant who gave the GCPD information that led to a historic drug bust ending mobster Sal Maroni's operation - and dies. Batman and Gordon deduce that the informant may be the Penguin and track him to a drug deal. They discover that Maroni's operation never actually ended and many GCPD officers are involved. Selina inadvertently exposes them when she arrives to steal money. As the Penguin flees, Selina discovers Annika's corpse in a car trunk. Batman captures the Penguin but learns that he was not the informant.
