Prince Harry inspired the new Batman movie
According to the film’s director, Prince Harry may have been the inspiration for the new Batman character, who “was just meant to look like a wealthy loser rather than a playboy.”
Robbie Collin, chief film critic for The Telegraph, spoke to actor Robert Pattinson, Matt Reeves, who directed the film, about the character of Bruce Wayne and wrote: “Reeves told me he advised Pattinson to break away from the British royal family to be inspired.
“He was interested, he says, in the idea of Bruce finding his role as the son of one of Gotham’s oldest families a ‘burden’.”
He reports that Mr. Reeves “described it to Rob [Pattinson] as if something tragic had happened in the family’s past [Bruce Wayne’s parents are, famously, murdered when he is a young boy] and now he had to carry that with him and everyone always had to look at him, so he would want to pull away from that.”
Mr Collin notes: “And indeed, by the time we meet Bruce in the film, he has retired from his civic duties much like Prince Harry. Reeves told Pattinson, ‘Rather than a playboy, he should just look like a wealthy loser.'”
