Director Matt Reeves has opened up about why Bruce Wayne doesn’t disguise his voice when he transforms into the Caped Crusader in the latest iteration of The Batman.
Reeves’ reimagining of the popular superhero stars Robert Pattinson as the title character. Throughout the film, Wayne/Batman follow clues left by a sadistic killer.
In a recent interview, the director explained his decision to give his Dark Knight a natural-sounding voice rather than a growl like previous iterations.
“I knew I didn’t want to do a Batman that had been done before with the snarl that we had seen,” Reeves said cinema blend.
He continued, “Because I knew that in this version, if you do a detective story, Batman is going to have a lot of dialogue scenes.
“If you look at all the movies, maybe Bruce has a lot of long dialogue scenes, but Batman’s dialogue scenes, he has dialogue, but he’s controlled.”
The film, which recently made available to US viewers on HBO Max, has received widespread critical acclaim, with particular praise for the performances of Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz.
It has also been confirmed that Pattinson will reprise his role in the upcoming sequel to the film, which is currently in development.
