The production for the movie has been halted. But how different should this DC movie be from the previous ones?
- Lack of Experience: in the movie, Bruce Wayne will be fighting a new villain. It will not be an original story because Bat’s origin story has been done to death on the big screen, but it will pick up with a Batman who has been protecting the streets of Gotham for about a year.
All the previous incarnations of Batman have presented him with unparalleled crime-fighting abilities. Even in the movie Batman Begins, which tells us the origin of the character story in detail, Batman returns from his League of Shadows training with unbeatable physical prowess and finely tuned instincts.
- Tradition: having a Batman’s voice: just as every Bond actor has a different candor when delivering one-liners, every post-Keaton Batman actor has defined their own Batman voice. During the pre-production on the 1989 Tim Burton movie, Michael Keaton became concerned that Bruce Wayne’s identity remaining a secret was unrealistic because he is a high profile figure who dresses up like a bat. His solution was to play Batman’s scenes with a lower-pitched tone.
- Different: the world’s greatest detective: alongside the more commonly cited the Dark Knight Batman’s nickname include the World Greatest detective. In the comics, Batman’s detective skills play a crucial role in many of his storylines, but the films have sidelined this aspect of the character in favor of big-budget spectacle.
- Tradition: Trusting the vision of the Director: the Batman movies have involved a strong partnership between the actor and the director. Michael Keaton trusted Tim Burton’s vision. Christian Bale trusted Christopher Nolan’s vision. Ben Affleck and Zack Snyder had a good relationship.
Well, this is it, guys. Let us hope the best for the entire team and wish them success for their upcoming movie.
