Robert Pattinson lauds detective story in The Batman

Speaking to MovieMaker Magazine during an interview, Robert Pattinson touched on how the detective element of the Batman movie is one of the more important aspect of the movie and how director Matt Reeves pitched the idea of the movie to him. He shared that he was impressed with the detective story in the movie, which has been overlooked in the other Batman films.

In the first meeting, he was saying, we want to lean into the ‘world’s greatest detective aspect,’ and be a detective noir movie and, you know, normally when directors say that, they just do like a mood board, and it’s just about the imagery. But I read the script, and it is! It’s a detective movie. It happens all the time in the graphic novels, but it’s always kind of on the backburner in the movies.

Robert Pattinson also spoke about how Batman movies separate themselves from the movies that Oscar voters like because of the idea of a vigilante disguising himself as a scary animal.

Even in the early comics, there was something which I really liked.

In a lot of the early tellings of it, he’s just sitting at home and a bat just smashes through the window, and he’s like, ‘That’s it!’ I’ll be a bat!’

That doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.

There’s an element in the other iterations of the story where Bruce goes off, does his training, masters himself and then comes back to Gotham as a fully realized character and the delineation between Bruce and Batman — the public Bruce, the private Bruce, and the Batman Bruce — are very contained and he can control them more easily.

And in this, the lines have totally blurred. His self as Bruce is sort of disintegrating.
