The Batman Director On The Future Of Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne Persona

the batter director Matt Reeves recently spoke about the future growth of Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne persona.

Most agree that Matt Reeves’ take on the Dark Knight in the batter is fairly faithful to most versions of the character in the comics, but the director also took a different approach with Robert Pattinson’s Kurt Cobain-inspired Bruce Wayne in the film. on The treatment podcast, the batter filmmaker may have teased Pattinson’s Bruce the playboy persona in future episodes:

“One of the things that was interesting to me was not to focus on an original story, because we’d seen Burton do it so well, and Nolan did it so well. I wanted to do “Batman” and Bruce Wayne early years. And it was important to me that even though it wasn’t an origin story, in the early years of what he was doing, and still trying to understand himself, he was still a young man trying to put himself together and find a way to function. This idea of ​​not yet understanding even the asset that Bruce Wayne could be, the way other iterations of the character have where they realize, oh, I could be Bruce Wayne, and that could be a different kind of mask. He’s just not together enough to even understand how valuable that will be.”

Matt Reeves also explained why he decided to go in the direction he did with Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne in the batter

“I was interested in the idea that he might be at a stage where he couldn’t bear the weight of the history of being part of the Waynes. I thought he might be sort of a member of the Kennedy family, like a American royalty, or what a British royal family would be like in the aftermath of a tragedy and how a lens was put on you because of a family tragedy that you could never escape and so his response would be that he wants to pull out of all that and don’t understand that in the mission of what he was trying to do to understand his life, maybe he could use that as a kind of mask or or disguise, that could be useful. He can’t figure out anything about that yet.”

the batter director Matt Reeves continued to delve deeper into Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne’s character arc on the podcast:

“This whole movie is about the genesis of him. It’s not about mastering himself. It is, of course, a fantastic idea that you could control yourself. I mean, nobody controls themselves. What was really interesting was seeing someone trying to master himself but had a huge amount of what he was doing that he wasn’t even aware of. He was unaware of his motives. And I thought about the idea of ​​masks and some kind of Jungian psychology and that he was driven by his shadow side. That whole idea that in Jungian psychology you have to make yourself aware of those shadow impulses so that you can incorporate them into your life. I like the idea that he’s at this stage of his life where he really didn’t see that, and he didn’t understand everything that drove him, because he was in some kind of emotional free fall.”

Here’s the synopsis for it The batter:

Sneaking through the streets for two years as Batman (Robert Pattinson), terrifying the hearts of criminals, has brought Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City.
