the batter Director Matt Reeves revealed how listening to Robert Pattinson’s Nirvana inspired Bruce Wayne.
One of the most notable moments in recent comic book movie memory was when the first trailer for Matt Reeves’ the batter began with Nirvana’s “Something In The Way”, one of the band’s most gloomy and dejected songs. The song immediately set the tone for Reeves’ take on the character, which would be grounded and sassy, etched into reality. It turns out that the song from the popular ’90s album “Nevermind” was at the heart of Reeves’ writing process.
In an interview with Empire magazine — which recently revealed two new images from the film — Matt Reeves revealed how the song by the band and its lead singer, Kurt Cobain, inspired Robert Pattinson’s version of Bruce Wayne.
“When I write, I listen to music, and while I was writing the first act, I put on Nirvana’s ‘Something In The Way’. Then it occurred to me that instead of Bruce Wayne making the playboy version that we’ve seen before, there’s another version that had gone through a great tragedy and turned into a recluse. So I started making this connection with Gus Van Sant’s Last days, and the idea that this fictionalized version of Kurt Cobain is in this kind of dilapidated mansion.”
Matt Reeves went on to reveal how he sought out Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader after seeing him in the Safdie Brothers. Good time.
“In that film you could really feel his vulnerability and despair, but you could also feel his strength. I thought that was a great mix. He also has that Kurt Cobain thing, where he looks like a rock star, but you also feel like he could be a recluse.”
Bruce Wayne’s new interpretation is a far cry from the charismatic stud we’ve seen on the big screen before. The departure from extroverted to introverted definitely sets Matt Reeves’ view of the character apart and we’re looking forward to seeing just how reclusive Bruce Wayne is from Robert Pattinson.
Here’s the official 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. With only a few trusted allies—Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lieutenant James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright)—in the town’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established itself as the only embodiment of revenge among its fellow citizens. .
When a killer attacks Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the world’s greatest detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters characters such as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/ aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro) and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence grows closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must renew relationships, expose the perpetrator and bring justice for the abuses of power and corruption that have long plagued Gotham City.
