Matt Reeves’ The Batman is relaunching the Dark Knight on the big screen, and here’s every character who is confirmed to appear. Batman has been part of Hollywood’s trademark franchises for decades. Multiple actors have played the role before, with Ben Affleck most recently playing Batman in the DC Extended Universe. For some time, Affleck was attached to write, direct, produce, and star in The Batman, but he eventually exited the movie following the experience with Justice League. This resulted in Matt Reeves being hired to direct The Batman and eventually find a new, younger Bruce Wayne once Affleck officially left.

The Batman will be a semi-origin story for Gotham’s caped crusader, with Robert Pattinson playing the lead role. Story details for The Batman confirm the movie follows Batman during his second year as a crime fighter, giving audiences another chance to see a version of the Dark Knight who is still learning the ropes. The movie will also put more of a focus on Batman’s detective abilities to establish why he’s known as the world’s greatest detective. This story will take place outside of the main DCEU continuity, allowing Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson to reboot Batman in a brand new franchise.
