After months of nothing about Matt Reeves’ The Batman, the new year has brought with it a number of new reveals about the upcoming film, including some news about the story.
Reeves recently did a career profile interview with The Hollywood Reporter, and in this interview, he talked a little more about his upcoming film, The Batman.
The director told the outlet, “It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.”
Of course, the caped crusader will need some crimes to investigate, and Reeves has plans for this, “There will be a Rogues Gallery. The casting process will begin shortly. We’re starting to put together our battle plan. I’m doing another pass on the script and we’ll begin some long-lead stuff to start developing conceptual things.”
More on Reeves’ The Batman when we have it.
