I know everyone is excited that Zack Snyder gets to complete his version of DC’s Justice League, but don’t forget we have a new Batman on the horizon. Matt Reeves’s The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne and according to co-star, Jeffrey Wright; we are getting something really special.
Wright plays Commissioner James Gordon in The Batman and had this to say about the film:
“We’re working together to create a mood, to create an idea, a setting, a tone.”
“My take is — the way I explain what we’re doing is, like with any film, we’re working together to create a mood, to create an idea, a setting, a tone. This is the next evolution since 1939 when these stories began. This is the next evolution of Gotham. So I am working off the stage (director) Matt [Reeves] is providing and also working off what (star) Robert [Pattinson] is doing. We are trying to create something together that is our own, but is also Batman.”
Wright also gave information on the new Batmobile:
“I read the script for the Batmobile and I was like, ‘Yeah, that’s it,'” he said. “(Bruce Wayne) created the most badass muscle car you could imagine, but it’s grounded in Gotham. It’s grounded in Americana.”
Who else is excited for The Batman, which hits theaters in October 2021?
