While appearing on THE BEAT WITH ARI MELBER, Jeffery Wright — who is playing Jim Gordon in THE BATMAN — talks a bit about, well, THE BATMAN

Batman is fascinating.  It’s evolved from 1939 to now.

What we were trying to do it to try to create a film, and a tone, a mood, a setting that’s contemporary, grounded…in a Gotham that we might all relate to…and we’re doing it together.

What I’m doing as Commissioner Gordon is to play off of what Rob Pattinson is doing as Batman.

Yeah, we were all in this together and doing some…pretty cool stuff.

Word.

Here’s hoping that they are able to get back to filming here soon — as long as it’s safe, of course — so we can ultimately see that “contemporary, grounded,” and “pretty cool stuff.”
