Peter Sarsgaard Describes His Character in THE BATMAN

"The guy in this isn’t very nice."


While appearing as a guest on THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT (I still have a hard time not seeing David Letterman’s name in the title), Peter Sarsgaard revealed to SC that his character — D.A. Gil Colson — was created specifically for THE BATMAN.  He also described his character as follows…

I’m a district attorney.   I’m basically a politician that has trouble telling the truth…the guy in this isn’t very nice.

There’s going to be A LOT of corruption in Gotham that The Batman (Robert Pattinson) and Jim Gordon (Jeffery Wright) will have to take on in THE BATMAN, no?  Also what’s kinda ironic/cool, both Sarsgaard and his lovely wife, Maggie Gyllenhaal, will have played Gotham City district attorneys — and characters created especially for Batman films — in a Batman movie…albeit one was a good one (Rachel Dawes) and the other bad (Gil Colson).  ANYWAY
