“Even five years ago, I was the last person I thought would be cast as Batman,” he added. “Normally I never qualify for superhero roles. Usual [in those roles] you’re either a total stranger or someone who just, I don’t know, seems more obvious. I don’t understand what it was with Batman, but I got really fixated on it and my agent kept pushing for it. I loved Matt’s work in the Planet of the Apes movies so much, and a lot of Matt’s work. and I was thinking, if you can get that feat out of a monkey… . [laughs] Then I met Matt and he had such an interesting take on the character, and it just felt very different and a little bit dangerous. It felt like a big, big mountain to climb.”
