In a recent interview with Total Film, The Batman director Matt Reeves discusses his love and admiration for The Dark Knight.
Even though The Batman should hit theaters in about a month, it is still hard to believe it, when we remember all the COVID problems it had during its production. Still, it looks like it is on the right track, and that we will soon have a chance to see it.
That said, for now at least, we actually don’t know a lot about the movie. We know about some of its villains, we know it will focus more on a detective story, and it looks like it will be, as it usually is, pretty dark. We also know it will focus on The Dark Knight during his formative years.
Now, when the filming wrapped, Matt Reeves and the company started to promote the movie. In a recent interview with Total Film, Reeves discussed his love for this cult DC character and how we always loved Batman adaptations. Here’s what he had to say.
“I loved [Batman] since I was a kid, and I was introduced to the character through the Adam West TV series. The show came out the same year I was born. Every time that the movies came out, I was a huge fan. I just never thought that the opportunity would come my way.”
Unfortunately, he wasn’t willing to share anything more about the movie, but still, we hopefully won’t have to wait a lot more to see The Batman. If no more delays happen (and it is very possible that it could), we will have to wait until March 4, 2022, to see it.
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
