THE BATMAN filming currently suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, however, Andy Serkis has given us an update on the movie. According to the Black Panther actor and Venom 2 director, the film will be ‘darker than previous’ adaptations of the Caped Crusader.
When asked during an interview if fans should expect a “darker, broodier” when THE BATMAN arrives on the big screen, the British said actor star laughed: “I would say that’s not far from the truth.
“It’s very much about the emotional connection between Alfred and Bruce. That’s really at the center of it. And it is a really exquisite script that Matt has written.”
Andy will replace Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth in Matt Reeve’s take on the Dark Knight.
THE BATMAN will reportedly take place during Bruce Wayne’s second year of being Batman which will explain a lot about Pattinson’s suit and look as the vigilant. The Batsuit also seems to feature Samurai armor gauntlets.
The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Golden Globe-winner Jeffrey Wright (Westworld) as Commissioner James Gordon, Zoë Kravitz (Big Little Lies) as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Golden Globe-nominee Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, Golden Globe-nominee Andy Serkis (Black Panther) as Alfred Pennyworth, Golden Globe-winner Colin Farrell (The Gentleman) as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, newcomer Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, 2x Golden Globe-nominee John Turturro (The Night Of) as Carmine Falcone and Golden Globe-nominee Peter Sarsgaard (Green Lantern) as Gil Colson.
