Filmmakers have approached Batman from a variety of different perspectives in the last several decades. But, it’s become clear that the vast majority of fans prefer Dark Knight to be dark. Following this Andy Serkis is assuring fans that they won’t have anything to worry about when Batman returns to theatres next year.
Andy Serkis dropped a few hints on The Batman!
The darker version of the Justice League hit HBO Max in the form of J.J. Abrams-produced Justice League Black series. Following this, it appears that the next version of Batman will also be following suit and receiving a darker version. When the latest Batman movie races to hit the theatres, it might be the darkest one.
The Batman director Matt Reeves dropped a few hints that he plans to approach the iconic DC character differently and more uniquely than what’s been done previously. Furthermore, Andy Serkis—who will be playing Batman’s butler and best friend Alfred Pennyworth in the film—has also given us another clue as to what direction The Batman might behead.
Here is what Andy Serkis says!
While speaking to LAD Bible, Serkis says it’s true the movies will hit up with more powerful features than previous films. “I would say that’s not far from the truth,” the actor says. “It’s very much about the emotional connection between Alfred and Bruce. That’s really at the centre of it. And it is an exquisite script that Matt has written.”
The actor goes on to explain that he doesn’t want to replicate any of the portrayals .” His Alfred was legendary. I couldn’t even begin to go there. You find it for yourself. It’s like playing the iconic roles in Shakespeare. It feels like you go back, you revisit them, and you have to make it your own. And visualize what it is about the character, that connects with you and your Venn diagram,” Serkis adds.
For Diligent Fans, this is going to be a massive Hurrah!
Here is what Reeves said in an interview, “It was going great. We shot about a quarter of the movie so far; we have three quarters to go. And when people feel safe to turn up to theatres, we will return to it. It’s been exciting to go on this journey with them, and to feel like we are trying to do something different.” One of the exciting news is The Batman is currently set to hit theatres on October 1, 2021.
