A new clip dropped online from The Batman featuring Robert Pattinson’s Batman interacting with Jeffrey Wright’s Lt. Gordon. Their meeting ends with Batman slugging Gordon in the face.
Jimmy Kimmel Live! featured the new film clip. We see Batman and Gordon having a close conversation as other Gotham Police officers start entering into an adjacent room. Suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere Batman punches Gordon out and begins to run. The cops become noticeably alarmed and start chasing Batman down a hallway. Fortunately Batman begins his escape from the police station thanks to his trusty grappling gun.
The clip from the movie begins at the 7:32 mark.
Why Did Batman Punch Gordon?
There are a lot of questions about what is occurring in the clip. Why is Batman meeting with Gordon in plain sight at a police station? It seems like that Gordon is implying there are some dirty, corrupt cops at the precinct, are they important to the Riddler’s schemes? Gordon also mentioned the Iceberg Lounge. Is this connected to the Penguin? Why did Batman suddenly lay one out on Gordon?
If nothing else, this clip intrigues viewers to check out the entire movie.
The Batman hits theaters on March 4, 2022. It will also stream on HBO Max on April 19, 2022.
