“The Batman” Box Office

Opening March 4, 2022,  "The Batman", produced by DC Films, earned $128,500,000 (domestic) and $120,000,000 (international), for a worldwide total of $248,500,000:

"...set in his second year of fighting crime, the film sees Batman uncover corruption in Gotham City...

"...while facing a killer known as the 'Riddler'...

"It's very much a point of view-driven, 'noir Batman' tale,"said the film’s director Matt Reeves.

"It's told very squarely on his shoulders and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional.

"It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He's supposed to be the world's greatest detective...

"...and that's not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been.

“I'd love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime. It's going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation."
