When Matt Reeves’ long-awaited The Batman standalone movie hits theaters, it’ll feature “a rogues gallery” of villain to take on the Dark Knight. That update comes directly from Reeves himself who opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about the long-in-development project.
In the interview, Reeves began to shed light on the mysterious project that’s been in the works at Warner Bros. for nearly two years. We know very little about the movie other than it will tackle on the early years of Bruce Wayne’s career as Batman. However, in the interview, Reeves dropped major details about the movie and the villains we can expect in the movie.
“You can’t have Batman without a villain,” says Reeves. “There will be a rogues gallery. We’re starting to put together our battle plan. The studio has a definite shape in mind for when they see us doing it and I think it’s aligning pretty well with what we’re thinking too.”
Reports came out late last year that the studio expected a final script from Reeves before the end of the year. With the script in the fold, the studio expects to begin casting and possibly begin shooting by the end of the year. Judging from Reeves’ words, the project is well underway.
A main point of interest for Reeves is to incorporate many iconic villains. He didn’t reveal which ones he had in mind but whichever he goes with, it should provide an interesting face-off with Batman.
As for the story itself, Reeves expanded somewhat on it: “It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films.”
One of the forgotten aspects of the Batman character that has sadly been ignored in the major movies is his detective skills. Reeves seems to want to re-explore these traits through a gritty take on the Caped Crusader.
Whatever Reeves is cooking up with The Batman, it sounds like it’ll be a very intriguing movie.
