When the young Bruce Wayne's parents are killed by a mugger, he sets out on a journey to discover the means to fight injustice. He finds a possible answer through a man named Ra's Al Ghul (Ken Watanabe), the head of the League of shadows. With help from Ghul, and his assistant Henri Ducard (Liam Neeson), he learns the skills he needs to rid Gotham of criminals. On returning to Gotham, he finds the city ruled by crime and corruption. When he discovers a cave under the mansion, Wayne finds the symbol he is looking for. The thing which will strike fear into his enemies. The Bat. In order to create this image, Wayne visits his fathers friend, Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman), who works at Wayne Enterprises developing all the gadgets Batman will use. After this, Wayne takes to the street as Batman, striking fear into the hearts of his enemies. He must face his demons, and try to uncover the plans of the mafia boss Carmine Falcone (Tom Wilkinson), the Scarecrow (Cillian Murphy), and a mysterious third party...
Bruce Wayne: I'm going to show the people of Gotham that the city doesn't belong to the criminals and the corrupt. People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy. I can't do this as Bruce Wayne. A man is just flesh and blood and can be ignored or destroyed. But as a symbol... As a symbol, I can be incorruptible, everlasting.
