The Batman: New details emerge for Robert Pattinson’s Batsuit



As filming on Matt Reeves’ The Batman will reportedly begin in two weeks, new details are beginning to emerge. The detail that the vast majority of people are waiting on is what Robert Pattinson’s Batsuit will look like, and we may have a new idea.


Former Variety reporter Kris Tapley posted a tweet on Tuesday – since deleted – that gave some clues to Pattinson’s Batsuit. He stated that they would resemble Lee Bermejo’s designs. Fans did some digging and found fan art Bermejo posted of Pattinson in his Batman Nöel suit, and it appears this may be what we can expect.


Quote:
Other:This a picture from Lee Bermejo's Instagram story from back in September of fan art of Pattison in a batsuit resembling his style. The rumor is that the new suit will take inspiration from Lee Bermejo's design.



Bermejo tends to favor a more utilitarian look to his Batsuits. A lot of mesh inserts, everything fastened with buckles and so on. He also tends to favor a shorter ear profile for the cowl.
Again, we want to stress this is based off of one report in a now-deleted tweet. We would take it with a definite grain of salt for the time being. From what little we’ve heard up until now about the design aesthetic, it does seem to match up.
We’re still not sure when the official unveiling of the latest Batsuit will happen, but we’re definitely eager to see it.

THE BATMAN: First Set Photos Now Online As Production Seemingly Gets Underway In London

Although no cast members were spotted, a batch of photos from the set of Matt Reeves' The Batman have been shared online, confirming that cameras are now rolling on the upcoming reboot. Take a look...




Speculation mounted that The Batman must be scheduled to commence production very soon after cast member Jeffrey Wright (Commissioner Gordon) send out this Tweet early Sunday morning, and it's now been confirmed thanks to a series of set snaps.

Although there's no sign of any of the movie's main stars here, Gotham City police cars, a news van and a water and power truck were spotted near the Thames in London just a few hours ago as the crew were in the process of setting up.


While not particularly exciting, it's nice to know that cameras are (or soon will be) rolling, and we might get a glimpse of some familiar faces over the next few days.


Running down the Thames today and see this!
#Batman #Gotham #Thames #London #Filming #movies

The Batman Set Photos Reveal Possible First Look at Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne

It looks like cameras are finally rolling on The Batman, Warner Bros. and DC's latest iteration of the iconic Dark Knight, so of course there are already droves of set photos and videos popping up on social media. There are Gotham Police cars in the streets of London, and everyone in the city is trying to get a glimpse of what director Matt Reeves is bringing to the table. So far, the photos have just consisted of police cars and random extras, as well as what appears to be the first look at Colin Farrell's Penguin. However, it now looks like we're getting our first glimpse at star Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne.


Don't get your hopes up, he's not in the Batsuit or anything like that. Those scenes haven't taken place just yet and many of them will likely be shot in a studio somewhere. But one batch of set photos does show a character on a motorcycle taking his helmet off, and it seems like Pattinson is underneath.


In the photos below, you'll see the masked rider remove his helmet to reveal a mostly covered face above a large parka and backpack. There's not a lot to go on here, but it's hard to think that the person on the bike is anyone other than Pattinson, based on his eyes and hair. Take a look for yourself.










As the account that shared these photos notes, there is no real way to confirm that this is in fact Robert Pattinson. It just looks a lot like him, and the covering of the face could easily fit into a storyline in which Bruce Wayne is trying to keep a low profile. Reeves has noted that this movie will focus on Batman as a detective, so hiding his face before getting a suit makes quite a bit of sense.


If this is indeed Pattinson under the helmet, and the earlier photos do in fact reveal a look at Colin Farrell, a couple of key cast members are present for the scene being shot in downtown Gotham City. The Batman stars that have yet to be spotted include Zoe Kravitz, Andy Serkis, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, Peter Sarsgaard, and Paul Dano.


Keep your eyes peeled for more photos and videos from The Batman set, as this is just the first public shoot of the production. There will likely be a lot more where these came from over the coming weeks.

The Batman Set Photos May Reveal First Glimpse of Colin Farrell's Penguin

A new year is here, and that means Batman is preparing to make a big comeback. Not long ago, work got underway on Matt Reeves' The Batman, and set photos have started to pop up online. So far, fans have gotten a small taste of the film's own Gotham, and it seems some new ones may have outed Colin Farrell's Penguin ahead of schedule.


Over on Twitter, a user known as Wade Gravett shared a slew of set photos from London where The Batman is being shot. It was there fans got a special behind-the-scenes look at the project, but one photo of Farrell has fans in a frenzy.


As you can see below, one photo shows a man on set dressed in a long black coat that is button up. With dark pants to match, the light-haired actor is sporting a familiar black umbrella like that of the Penguin. And if you look closely at the photo, you will see the actor in question appears to be Farrell himself.

THE BATMAN Director Matt Reeves Appears To Confirm Colin Farrell's Role As The Penguin

Possibly prompted by today's set photos, director Matt Reeves has taken to Twitter to confirm that Colin Farrell (Daredevil, The Killing of a Sacred Deer) will be playing The Penguin in The Batman...




The trades reported that Colin Farrell was in talks to play Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin, in Matt Reeves' The Batman a few months back, but the director has now taken to social media to make the casting official.



Reeves sent out a Tweet which included a GIF of the Irish actor's character from the film In Bruges, along with the caption "Wait — is that you, #Oz?"

Mark Cassidy | 1/6/2020 Filed Under: "The Batman"

The trades reported that Colin Farrell was in talks to play Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin, in Matt Reeves' The Batman a few months back, but the director has now taken to social media to make the casting official.

THE BATMAN Set Photos Seemingly Provide Our First Look At Robert Pattinson As Bruce Wayne

Reeves sent out a Tweet which included a GIF of the Irish actor's character from the film In Bruges, along with the caption "Wait — is that you, #Oz?"


The timing of this Tweet is interesting, as earlier today a batch of photos from the set of The Batman gave us a glimpse of a white-haired figure holding an umbrella which many fans believe to be Farrell's Penguin stunt double. It's possible that Reeves wanted to get this confirmation out there before more revealing pics inevitably find their way online.

The Batman is set to hit theaters next June, and also stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, and Paul Dano as The Riddler. Peter Sarsgaard is the most recent addition to the cast, but his role remains under wraps.

The Batman Probably ISN'T a Period Movie - Here's Why



Despite early reports that director Matt Reeves' The Batman might be set in the 1990s, leaked photos from the set certainly suggest otherwise. There has been no indication from filmmakers one way or the other, but the case appears to be closed.


Much of the speculation began after the casting of 33-year-old Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, following the long, slow departure of Ben Affleck from the role, made official in January 2019. The 47-year-old Affleck, who starred in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, was originally attached to direct, co-write and star in the Batman solo film. Reeves, who succeeded Affleck behind the camera, confirmed in June that Pattinson would don the cape and cowl, signaling a new direction for The Batman. As such, a period piece seemed plausible.


After all, the younger vigilante that Pattinson brings to the table would, theoretically, be a great way to refresh a character that has appeared onscreen so frequently. The 1990s were pointed to as the likely setting because of a variety of factors, including its proximity to the modern day giving Pattinson the wiggle room to slip into the established timeline of the so-called DC Extended Universe. The '90s previously worked well for Captain Marvel, so the move would not have been unprecedented.
However, these leaked set photos dash any hopes for a return to that decade. Foremost are the news vans marked as "Gotham Action News 4," which advertise "HD LIVE," which would seem to place the setting no earlier than the mid- to late 2000s
The years of the cars also don't align with the 1990s, and appear to be wholly modern. Typically for period productions with such high budgets will go to great efforts to nail down every detail, and something as blatant as the make and model of the vehicles would be at the top of the list.
That may come as a disappointment to anyone hoping to see the direction The Batman might have gone if set nearly 30 years ago. The '90s are fondly remembered by Batman as the setting of some of his best comic stories, from the "No Man's Land" arc in which an earthquake devastated Gotham, to "Knightfall," in which the Caped Crusader was sidelined by a critical injury and his cowl challenged by a successor.
Admittedly, the leaked photos do not rule out a period setting entirely; there's still room for a film set in the 2000s. But then, why bother when a contemporary film would be easier? A 1990s setting seemed to offer a good deal of storytelling potential, but with that possibility effectively ruled out, it's anyone's guess what The Batman will do to distinguish itself from the past.

THE BATMAN Set Photos Have Seemingly Confirmed When The DC Comics Movie Takes Place

There's been a lot of speculation and rumours that The Batman will be set during the 1990s, but those recent set photos may actually confirm when in history the DC Comics adaptation takes place...




While early reports pointed to The Batman being set in the 1990s, those recent set photos from London may tell a different story altogether.

As you may recall, the rumors that the movie would take place in the past first surfaced shortly after Robert Pattinson was cast as the Caped Crusader, and would have meant that the movie could be viewed as a prequel of sorts to Ben Affleck's appearances as Batman. After all, setting it in that time period would means that it stands away from the rest of the DC Extended Universe and simultaneously explores Bruce Wayne's early days as the Dark Knight in Gotham City.


However, CBR points out that the "Gotham Action News 4" vans that have been spotted also advertise a "HD Live" broadcast which points to The Batman being set in the mid to late 2000s at the earliest. It's also possible that it could take place in the present day, but if it is set in 2005, for example, that leaves Pattinson plenty of time to grow into Ben Affleck (uh, we guess).

The cars don't look like they hail from the 90s, either, and actually appear to be modern. Now, nothing has been confirmed, but it does appear that fans hoping for a movie inspired by that era of storytelling will be disappointed (still, there's nothing to say those storylines won't inform what ends up on screen in some fashion).

The Batman Star Zoe Kravitz Breaks Silence on Her Role as Catwoman

The Batman creeps nearer and nearer as rumors swirl that filming is going on right now. One of the actors that Batman fans can’t wait to see in action is Zoe Kravitz, who will be playing Catwoman in the upcoming movie. She dropped by Just Jared to talk about preparing for the role for the first time. Getting ready for these big comic book films is more than a notion, there’s so much planning and meticulous prep that goes into being ready for the action. She’s been sharing small looks at her hair heading into the process and fans were loving the look. But, it is a whole other thing entirely to be in the physical shape necessary to carry this thing off.


“I’ve been training a ton, which is great and hard,” Kravitz revealed. “It’s very physical. I come home limping every day.”


Matt Reeves is shooting for a more down to earth approach to the hero. He’s stated before that Batman: Year One has proved to be a huge inspiration for the story. But, the director isn’t limiting himself to just that tale, he’ s looking to incorporate some other elements as well. That leaves the door open for plenty of back and forth with Selina Kyle and Batman.


"Year One is one of the many comic books that I love. We are definitely not doing Year One," Reeves previously explained. "It’s just exciting to be focused very specifically on a tale that is defining for him and very personal to him. Obviously, we’re not doing an origin tale or anything like that. We’re doing a story that is definitively Batman though, and trying to tell a story that’s emotional and yet is really about him being the world’s greatest detective and all the things that for me since I was a kid, made me love Batman."

The Batman: Zoe Kravitz Has Already Had Multiple Costume Fittings

Filming on Matt Reeves' The Batman is well underway in London, England and a couple of the upcoming film's biggest stars have already been spotted in the city streets. Robert Pattinson and Colin Farrell were seen in the earliest set photos from the movie, and Jeffrey Wright confirmed last week that he was heading to the set for the first time. Now it looks like their other high-profile co-stars are heading out to Europe to join them. Appearing on Ellen early this week, Zoe Kravitz confirmed she was about to head out to the set and begin her work on the highly-anticipated Batman relaunch.


As you probably know, Kravitz is playing Catwoman in The Batman, a role that has been played by Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry, and Anne Hathaway in past feature films. Part of the challenge with Catwoman, like any popular comic book character, is getting the costume right. These productions go through extensive tests and fittings to make sure the costumes are everything they're hoping for, and Kravitz is currently in the thick of that lengthy process.
During Kravtiz's time on Ellen, host Ellen DeGeneres asked whether or not she'd already been fitted for a costume. Kravitz confirmed that she'd already been through multiple rounds of fittings, in between all of the different workouts required for taking on the role.


"We've had many, it's going really well," Kravitz responded. "It's very exciting. And I've been training a ton, too, which has been great and hard."


"It's very physical," she continued. "I come home just limping every day. It's actually kind of pathetic."


Kravitz will star in The Batman alongside Pattinson, Farrell, Wright, Andy Serkis, Paul Dano, John Turturro, and Peter Sarsgaard. Reeves is serving as both writer and director, in a film that is reportedly set to be the first of a trilogy.
“Obviously we’re not doing an origin tale or anything like that,” Reeves said of his new take on Batman. “We’re doing a story that is definitively Batman though, and trying to tell a story that’s emotional and yet is really about him being the world’s greatest detective and all the things that for me, since I was a kid, made me love Batman.”

Robert Pattinson Wants to Push Batman as Far as Possible

The Batman star Robert Pattinson wants to take DC Comics’ Dark Knight as far as he can go. Pattinson -- who played the lead in Twilight, but has since been known primarily for psychologically heavy roles in smaller films -- Speaking to Empire Magazine, Pattinson says he hopes to bring his signature intensity to the character of Bruce Wayne, though some of that depends on the film’s rating. “The only thing that’s more complicated is the rating. As soon as you make something an R-rated movie, you’re freed up to do so much stuff,” he says. “In terms of the character itself, I want to push it as far as it possibly can go. And I think Matt Reeves does as well. You can do crazy stuff with that part.”


Pattison has spoken before about what drew him to the role of Batman. “I felt a connection to it, I don’t know why... I just really wanted it.” He goes on to say that the role has a “power… everyone is attracted to it. It’s an unidentifiable thing.


“I love the kind of history of the part. I love every iteration of how it’s been played. It’s a very, very special part and I think it’s been very carefully — I feel like everyone’s really looked after the character and its history and there’s a lot of reverence for it. You can really feel it in the studio. You can’t say no to it and I really wanted to say yes... I think Matt Reeves has got a really good direction for it. I’m very kind of eager to get started on it.”

THE BATMAN: We May Get A First Look At The Batmobile As Filming Moves To Glasgow, Scotland

It sounds like Glasgow, Scotland will soon double for Gotham City, and a local report claims that the new Batmobile could take to the streets! Find out more details on what could be happening here...




Daily Record has revealed that The Batman is coming to Glasgow next month and the Scottish-based website claims that the plan is to transform the city into Gotham!

The movie is currently shooting in London, and parts of the UK doubling for this iconic DC Comics location is a first. Interestingly, the site adds that, "Filming will also be the first opportunity for eagle-eyed DC Comics fans to catch a glimpse of the new Batmobile." Whether that's speculation or fact is hard to say, but this could be based on how many streets are being closed off, etc.


A number of movies have been shot in Glasgow over the past few years, including World War Z and Hobbs & Shaw. The Scottish city should help give Gotham an appropriately Gothic feel, and seeing the Batmobile in action via set videos should be awesome. This is something that's happened for the Caped Crusader's past few big screen adventures, as well.

The question is, will Warner Bros. release some official images beforehand?

There have been rumblings that a suit reveal is on the way (possibly as soon as this week), but that's just a rumour for now so stay tuned for updates on The Batman as we have them!

Peter Sarsgaard Says THE BATMAN Has An "Edge" And Energy Filled With The "Power Of Chaos"

While inquiring Caped Crusader fans really want to know who Peter Sarsgaard is portraying in The Batman, the former Green Lantern actor would only describe what filming on the Matt Reeves pic is like.




Is Peter Sarsgarrd portraying a notable Batman villain in the new cinematic reboot of the Dark Knight from Matt Reeves? Most comic book fans believe so, with the most prevalent guesses being Harvey Dent, aka Two-Face, Firefly or Victor Zsasz. However, if Reeves is basing his film on The Long Halloween, then Dent would be the most likely character as neither Firefly or Zsasz appear in the story.

Regardless, we don't get an answer in Sarsgarrd's interview with CinemaBlend while he was promoting his new CBS All Access series Interrogation. However, he did make an interesting comparison between The Batman and a Pixies song.


"The cast is so awesome. It seems different from other Batman movies to me, just with the cast. There’s something about it that has an edge, it’s young. To me, just my perception of it, it reminds me of when I was in college, and I went to go see The Pixies play, and looking around and feeling the vibe at a Pixies concert. That’s what it felt like to me, a song like ‘I Bleed.’ That it has the energy and that sort of thing, and isn’t so specifically targeted to a very young audience, or a very old audience, but has that power of chaos in it."

THE BATMAN Star Colin Farrell Describes Matt Reeves' Script As "Beautiful, Dark, Moving"

Colin Farrell is not quite ready to divulge any information about his character in Batman, but during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, the Irish actor did share his thoughts on Matt Reeves' "moving" script.




Colin Farrell appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to discuss his supporting turn in Guy Ritchie's The Gentlemen, and was inevitably asked about his upcoming role as The Penguin in Matt Reeves' The Batman.

The Irish actor - who does seem to have gained a bit of weight to bring life to the classic Batman villian - was hesitant to discuss his character in any detail, but he did offer his thoughts on the reboot's script.

“I’m in the process of talking to Matt Reeves, who’s the director, who wrote the script, and wrote a really beautiful, dark, moving script, really gorgeous,” Farrell said. “It’s all very hush hush,” he added, “but it’s a really beautiful script that he wrote and he has a real love for it, Matt. So, we’re in the process of finishing designing the aesthetic of the character.”

Farrell went on to praise his castmates, singling out Robert Pattinson (Bruce Wayne), Jeffrey Wright (Commissioner Gordon) and Zoe Kravitz (Catwoman) as actors he's looking forward to working with.

Despite speculation that Farrell donned grey hair and a suit to shoot scenes for the film in London last week, the Dumbo star maintains that had nothing to do with The Penguin, and that he doesn't actually begin filming for another three weeks.

THE BATMAN: Rumored New Details About The Basuit And Batmobile Point To A Grounded Take On The Dark Knight

Another rumour has started doing the rounds about the Batsuit Robert Pattinson will don in The Batman, & it sounds like we could see a controversial take on the hero not all that different to "Zero Year."




The signs are all pointing to The Batman being another origin story for Robert Pattinson's Dark Knight as he returns to Gotham City and dons the cape and cowl for the first time. Now, a new rumour points to the Batsuit being quite a bit different to previous versions and not quite as technologically advanced.

A report from Batman On Film claims that Pattinson's Bruce Wayne will be solely responsible for his costume, an indication that it won't feature the sort of gadgets we've been used to seeing courtesy of Wayne Industries. Instead, it sounds like it could be cobbled together from his own resources, thereby giving it a very different look and an appearance possibly similar to Batman: Zero Year.

As for the Batmobile, we should probably forget about seeing a tank-like vehicle or even one as stylised as in the earlier Batman movies. Instead, it's described as being akin to a "muscle car."

The most exciting thing is that a first look at both the Batsuit and Batmobile is expected to arrive imminently, as shooting starts taking place in the open. Some fans are likely going to be disappointed by the prospect of a "homemade" Batsuit, but that could change over time in this proposed trilogy.

What do you guys think of this latest rumour about The Batman?

THE BATMAN: Alex Ferns' Role May Have Been Revealed And It Could Shed Some Light On A Key Plot Point

Adam Ferns (Chernobyl) has seemingly been confirmed for The Batman, and his role in the movie may have revealed some new story details about when in the Caped Crusader's life this story will take place...




It was recently reported that Chernobyl and Taboo star Alex Ferns had joined the cast of The Batman, and an IMDb Pro listing has seemingly revealed who the Scottish actor will be playing.

Before we get to that, it's worth pointing out that IMDb Pro is a paid service and usually updated by those in the industry rather than some random fan looking to troll people. So, who will Ferns play? Well, it's said that he's going to be taking on the role of Commissioner Pete Savage in the film.

He appears to be a newly created character, but this news is interesting for a whole other reason.

If Pete Savage is Gotham City's Police Commissioner, then Jim Gordon (played by Jeffrey Wright) obviously isn't. That might confirm reports that The Batman will take place early on in the Dark Knight's career, and as well as seeing Bruce Wayne's journey from rookie vigilante into the World's Greatest Detective, we'll also witness Gordon rise up the ranks of the GCPD.

In related news, it's also said that Ferns' fellow Chernobyl actor Con O'Neill will be playing Chief Mackenzie Bock. He is a character from the comic books and played a key role in No Man's Land.

The Batman Crew Member Confirms Rumored Filming Location



The Batman was rumored to have already begun shooting and some intrepid fans may have found proof of where the shoot is going on. PeteysParker on Reddit made a post showing Zoe Kravitz’s hairstylist on Instagram in Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden. Now, there were some earlier rumors that this would be the site, but no confirmation yet. With so little information available about Matt Reeves’ upcoming film, people have been left to their own devices when it comes to hashing out the storyline. Still, with some of the villains that have already been cast including Colin Farrell’s Penguin, Paul Dano’s Riddler, and Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman. That leaves the door open for plenty of different stories. Reeves has been keen to shoot down notions that they’re adapting any one title. “We’re not doing any particular [comic book],” the director told the press back during a Television Critics Association panel promoting The Passage.
“Year One is one of the many comic books that I love, he continued. “We are definitely not doing Year One. It’s just exciting to be focused very specifically on a tale that is defining for him and very personal to him. Obviously we’re not doing an origin tale or anything like that. We’re doing a story that is definitively Batman though, and trying to tell a story that’s emotional and yet is really about him being the world’s greatest detective and all the things that for me, since I was a kid, made me love Batman.”


“I’ve talked about making it a very point of view noir-driven definitive Batman story in which he is investigating a particular case and that takes us out into the world of Gotham,” Reeves said. “I went on a deep dive again revisiting all my favorite comics. Those all inform by osmosis. There’s no continuation of the [Christopher] Nolan films. It’s very much trying to find a way to do this as something that for me is going to be definitively Batman and new and cool.”

The Batman: James Gordon May Not Be the Only Commissioner in Gotham



Two Chernobyl alums, Alex Ferns and Con O'Neill, may have been added to the cast of Matt Reeves' upcoming film The Batman as part of the Gotham City Police Department.


According to IMDB's cast list for The Batman, Ferns will be portraying a character known as Commissioner Pete Savage and O'Neill will play Chief Mackenzie Bock.


It was announced back in October that Westworld's Jeffery Wright would portray another GCPD member in The Batman, Commissioner Jim Gordon. No other GCPD members appear to have been announced for the film at this time.


Both Batman and the GCPD will likely have their hands full in The Batman, considering the large amount of villains already set to appear in the film. The Riddler, the Penguin and Carmine Falcone will all make appearances in the film. It's also worth noting that Peter Sarsgaard has been cast in an undisclosed role.


In addition to Chernobyl, Alex Ferns has appeared in several television programs and movies, including Wolfblood, The Legend of Tarzan, Romans and The Irregulars. Con O'Neill is a long-time English actor with roles in series including Harlots, Urban Myths and Queens of Mystery.

THE BATMAN Official Production Details & Cast List Confirms Peter Sarsgaard And Jayme Lawson's Roles

Director Matt Reeves confirmed that cameras are now rolling on The Batman with a Tweet last night, and now Warner Bros. has shared official production details, including the full cast/character list...




The Batman director Matt Reeves took to social media last night to confirm that the highly-anticipated reboot was now filming in London, and Warner Bros. has now followed that up with some official production details.

There's not much in the way of a plot synopsis, unfortunately, but the cast list does reveal some previously unconfirmed roles. It seems Peter Sarsgaard is playing a Gotham City District Attorney, but it's not Harvey Dent as many fans speculated. He'll actually be playing a new character to DC canon named Gil Colson. Likewise, Jayme Lawson will portray "mayoral candidate Bella Reál."

Now that cameras are rolling we may see some more revealing set photos soon, or possibly even an official look at Robert Pattinson in the Bat-suit. In the meantime, check out the full press release below and keep an eye on CBM for updates.

The Batman Composer Michael Giacchino Reveals He's Seen Robert Pattinson's Batsuit and Teases Different Version of Character



Composer Michael Giacchino has seen the Batsuit to be worn by new Dark Knight actor Robert Pattinson in the Matt Reeves-directed The Batman, which promises a "different" take on the character. The Academy Award-winning composer, who previously teamed with Reeves on Let Me In as well as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes, scored the Marvel Studios fanfare and superhero efforts Doctor Strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home. When he enters the DC film universe with The Batman, Giacchino hopes to achieve something that is "different from everyone else’s":


"It’s a little crazy at times, but I get to work on the films I love to work on. I love those big sort of event films — Star Trek, Star Wars, all the Marvel stuff — I love all of those, it’s really fun to be a part of those because that’s what I loved as a kid. And now to look back and see all those things, every one of those movies is something that I either had a comic book of or watched the movies as a kid and it’s just so weird to be a part of it," Giacchino told Hey U Guys at the BAFTA Awards, where Giacchino said he's now "in the middle of beginning some stuff for Batman."


"That is a really fun thing to be a part of because, again, I loved Batman, as we all do, growing up," he said. "So it’s just fun to be a part of taking it and doing your own version of it."


Asked which comic book influences inspired The Batman, Giacchino would only reveal the reboot aims to "do something different."


"Matt and I have talked about this for well over a year now. We’re like best friends so we talk all the time anyway, so this is just a normal part of our conversations," Giacchino said. "'Wouldn’t it be cool if we did this? Wouldn’t it be fun if we did this? Let’s take it in this direction, do something different.' That’s what we’re trying to do, is to take it and do our version of it, the thing that we would want to do, and hopefully that is different from everyone else’s."


Giacchino drew comparisons to the changing of hands between creative teams across Batman's more than 80-year comic book history, adding, "I used to love going in and seeing everyone’s different take on Batman. You’d get a comic book series and it would be a whole new take on the character, and that was always fun to do, and I feel like we’re part of that whole tapestry at this point."


On Pattinson — who is hoping superhero fame differs from fanfare surrounding the Twilight franchise — Reeves knew Pattinson was the right fit for his Bruce Wayne from "day one."


"He’s an amazing actor, he’s an incredible actor, and in this business you get pigeonholed for one thing, and if it goes off well, then that’s the only thing you’re gonna be known for. For someone like him, that’s really not a fair assessment," Giacchino said of Pattinson. "He is an amazing actor who can do pretty much anything, and that’s what I’m excited about, to see him in this role doing something different."


When asked if he's seen Pattinson's suit, so far unrevealed by studio Warner Bros., Giacchino wouldn't divulge any details on the top-secret costume. With a laugh and a smile, Giacchino said: "I've seen it!"
