Inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, the film begins with a brutal murder prompting Gotham’s young vigilante, the Batman, to form a pact with Police Captain James Gordan and District Attorney Harvey Dent in order to take down The Roman.
But when more deaths occur on Thanksgiving and Christmas, it becomes clear that, instead of ordinary gang violence, they’re also dealing with a serial killer – the identity of whom, with each conflicting clue, grows harder to discern.
Jensen Ackles, lauded for his performance as Red Hood/Jason Todd in 2010’s Batman Under the Red Hood, returns to the DC Universe Movies as the title character of Batman/Bruce Wayne while the late Naya Rivera (Glee), who passed away in 2020, gives one of her final performances as Catwoman/Selina Kyle.
