The Batman (2022)

March 4, 2022
PG-13
Action, Crime, Drama

The Batman is set two years into Bruce Wayne's time as Batman. Gotham City is riddled with crime and Batman is vengeance, striking fear in those who dare to do wrong on the streets of Gotham. He's shed his Bruce Wayne persona entirely; he doesn't care about what happens to Wayne Enterprises or making public appearances. Bruce is simply Batman and he's obsessed with making an impact on his city. When a killer begins targeting the powerful and rich in Gotham — district attorneys, politicians, etc. — Batman discovers there are a lot more mysteries that remain unsolved and hidden, including the truth about Bruce's own parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne. In trying to find out more information on Carmine Falcone, the mob boss, and who the mysterious serial killer is, Batman works with Selina Kyle (aka, Catwoman), who becomes embroiled in the conflict after her friend is kidnapped, to stop the killer before he targets someone else.

The Batman's release was delayed for a while because of the pandemic, but it was finally released to theaters on March 4, 2022. The film was made available to stream on HBO Max on April 18. The film was successful enough to garner a sequel, as well as a spinoff series about The Penguin. The Batman 2 is targeting a release window of around March 2025.

Ten years after the events of Avatar (2009), Avatar: The Way of Water follows Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) and their new family as they brave the world of Pandora and the struggles they endure to protect themselves and their people. James Cameron intends to explore the oceans of Pandora and set the stage for the subsequent two sequels. Several other characters from the first film will also return for the sequel, such as Sigourney Weaver, but some will play different characters.

Though Avatar: The Way of Water is the second film of an intended five-film saga, James Cameron has stated that this film will have its own conclusive arc that will not end with a cliffhanger. Instead, it will be a bridge between the films with connections that are obvious but not necessary to understand the story of each film. Avatar: The Way of Water will premiere in theaters in December 2022.
