“The Batman” will star Robert Pattinson as Batman and Paul Dano as the Riddler.

“Marry Me” tells the story of Kat Valdez, a famous superstar played by the world-famous Jennifer Lopez.

Last but not least, starring Gal Gadot is “Death on the Nile,” a 2022 mystery thriller imbued with drama.

Other cast members include actors Armie Hammer, Letitia Wright and more, who are all caught up in a terrifying search for the killer in which they themselves are also suspects.

From superheroes to space adventures, each film has much to look forward to and they are all a great way to start off 2022!
