With the end of the old year, and the beginning of the new, it’s time for rankings. In the editorial office, the format we have adopted does not provide for a real ranking, but a selection of six titles, our “six gems” which we consider unmissable. This column was first submitted by our fellow comic book enthusiasts (check out their picks of must-have comics for 2022) but unlike them, we’ve chosen to make a single list of titles, voted on within the editorial board.
Stop talking! It’s time to introduce you to the films, released in 2022, that we believe are unmissable:
The Batmanthe film directed by Matt Reevessees the protagonist Robert Pattinson in the role of Bruce Wayne and his superhero alter ego, theBatman. The film is not an origin story and, in fact, sees Bruce Wayne already wearing the mantle of Batman, who has been watching over the city of Gotham City for two years. In this period the superhero has already faced several criminals, but the time has come for him to descend into the dark depths of the city and this time collide with an enemy as cunning as it is fearsome.
Gotham City is in the hands of corruption, which is rampant among the highest offices of the city, where Batman seems to be the only one who seeks to ensure justice. This is why Bruce Wayne must be cautious and not trust easily. But on his side he always has the most trustworthy Alfred (Andy Serkis) and can also count on the lieutenant James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright). The vigilante, however, does not imagine that the new killer, The Riddler (Paul Dano), who sows terror in Gotham with riddles and deceptions, knows his identity, so much so that he spreads clues and enigmas about the Wayne family here and there. Investigating him in the slums, Batman comes across a number of characters, such as the charming Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), The Penguin (Colin Farrell) and the crime boss Carmine Falcone (John Turturro). The investigations he will conduct, however, will lead him to discover something that he has always ignored about his family and to defeat evil and finally have revenge, this time the Bat Man will have to make new alliances.
