The Batman

Gotham City shivers in the grip of fear. Two years into his vigilante crusade, Batman, a haunted Bruce Wayne shrouded in shadows, hunts a sadistic serial killer, the Riddler, who leaves cryptic clues targeting Gotham’s elite.

As the body count rises, Batman stumbles upon a web of corruption that extends deep into the city’s underbelly, implicating his own family’s legacy.
