Matt Reeves Talks About His Take on Batman

He identified that each Christopher Nolan and Tim Burton helmed good variations of the hero. I feel like they've been really distinctive.

"I just felt like well, what I'd love to do is to get a version of this Batman character where he's not yet fully formed". The best ones have been incredible. What Nolan did was incredible. He is clearly a man of taste, he is a huge fan of tim Burton's goth Christmas sequel to his box office smash Batman movie.

The director noted that the villains in Tim Burton's Batman Returns were masterfully written - praising Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman and Danny DeVito's Penguin. During an interview with Nerdist, Reeves revealed his thought process in creating the film.

One is Batman Returns, the second by director Tim Burton, and Reeves highlights above all how fascinating the villains were.

I love Batman Returns. Michelle Pfeiffer was incredible. I just think it's such a attractive movie. It's so incredible and she's so incredible in it. I like the Penguin stuff when he's happening the sewers because the child. It's just like, wow. "That is the attractive factor about Tim Burton at his finest in that means that he's acquired that connection into the fantastical that feels very, very private".

Full plot details on Robert Pattinson's The Batman are now under wraps, but we know that the film will revolve around a younger version of Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues' Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. For Matt Reeves, both Burton and Nolan provided him with valuable insight into what makes for a great Batman film. It's anticipated to be the primary chapter in a brand new trilogy that includes Robert Pattinson as Batman.

This is one of the main ways that The Batman director and co-writer Matt Reeves wanted his version of the eponymous protagonist to stand out from past iterations of the character, as Robert Pattinson's Batman doesn't have it all together just yet.

The interpretation that we can give is that, as we know, we are going to see a Batman who still has a lot to learn, who, as is characteristic of Batman, will be weighed down by the traumas of his past, and once again points out in the line that The film will be set in the present tense, so questions remain as to whether this will end up somehow fitting in with its current DC movie universe (Flashpoint?).
