The film is described as an “exploration of a man disregarded by society that is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.” The origin story will be set in 1980s Gotham City, with the Wayne family represented by its patriarch, Thomas. Scott Silver co-wrote the script with Phillips and the film is scheduled to hit theatres on October 4, 2019.
