The Batman director wants to be different from other Batman movies.

'The Batman' The First Dark Knight Cast

The movie, The Batman is being directed by Matt Reeves. The production of the movie is on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic. And since the movie is not being filmed, the filmmaker has lots of time to interact with the fans and share some details with them.

Also, he is eagerly waiting for this quarantine to end so that he could get back to work on the DC comic movie along with Robert Pattinson.


Reeves want this movie to be unique and different as already the fans have seen the character of Batman on the big screen, and those projects were hit with five major famous actors playing the role.

So, Reeves is trying his level best to make this Batman movie different, but the filmmaker would not have reached to the discussion of making the movie unique if he wouldn’t have to meet Nerdist’s Rosie Knight who told him about the importance of making the movie unique.

What is 'The Batman' The First Dark Knight about

Reeves said that he did not want to be part of the long list of Batman movies where his movie would be considered like any other movie. He also says that all the movies made till now are different and unique.

He clearly understands that it’s difficult to top the list where already these amazing movies are there, especially in front of Christopher Nolan’s Black Knight.

Reeves also said “The Dark Knight is so incredible and I think that Heath Ledger’s performance and their conception of the Joker in that movie is indelible. And the battle that he engaged with, you know, with Batman/Bruce is incredible,” Reeves explained. “But the thing you take away from it more than anything is that conception, specifically, I think of the Joker. That movie is so much about how it’s a horrifying thing to stare into the abyss, that idea of that level of nihilism. The whole idea that there was nothing you could do because even in the destruction of him, you were fulfilling his aims. It was just a terrifying notion that speaks to an aspect of human nature and that was profound.”

Reeves wanted to explore the character beyond any other portrayals yet. He wanted to present the character of the Batman in a truly different version. Reeves also said, “Where there’s something to do in this context with who that guy would be in this world today, and to ground him in all of these broken ways. Because at the end of the day, this guy is doing all of this to deal with trauma in his past.”

As of now, the release date of the movie is June 25, 2021. Till then, stay safe and keep reading our articles for further updates.
