LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz team up as Batman and Catwoman in the latest cinematic premiere of popular DC Comics characters for “The Batman.”
The nearly three-hour drama is a comedy, with two characters playing detectives to find a missing girl and locate The Riddler, who is murdering high-profile figures in Gotham City. .
The new direction made Pattinson and Kravitz a bit nervous about how audiences would react.
“I feel scared and very excited and very excited but definitely threatened,” Kravitz told Reuters in an interview.
“Hopefully it will go down well. I wish we had shot after the movie came out. It will be a lot easier,” added Pattinson.
Pattinson’s Batman has a different silhouette than previous spells. In this film from director Matt Reeves, he has a much slimmer pointy ear mask.
“I couldn’t hear anything. I also have a headset that I’m orienting… they sometimes leave on each person’s walkie-talkie all over the set and I can’t take it out myself so I’m literally listening to each and every one. Pattinson said.
“Sometimes (Reeves) turns on the microphone and you can hear, if it’s a tense scene, his breathing will speed up.”
Set in the fictional Gotham City, the film deals with politics, corruption, poverty, and crime.
“The ways Matt has combined this genre and the Batman series to make it a Batman movie, yes, but also about the world we live in, I think is really amazing.” Jeffrey Wright, who plays Batman’s police ally, Lieutenant James Gordon.
Colin Farrell looks unrecognizable as The Penguin, spending up to 4 hours a day applying makeup.
As well as rumors of a sequel, Warner Bros. has announced a spin-off TV show featuring The Penguin.
“Having six to eight hours or whatever, it’s just going to be a joy to explore this character because it doesn’t sound like a one-trick pony,” Farrell said.
“The Batman” opens in global theaters on Tuesday.
