Jeffery Wright on THE BATMAN: “We Made a Brilliant Film”

Jeffery Wright as Jim Gordon in THE BATMAN

Via an interview with COMICBOOK.COM, Jeffery Wright — who plays Gotham PD’s Jim Gordon in THE BATMAN — talks about working on the film with director Matt Reeves and his castmates.  Check it out below!

On working with the film’s star, Robert Pattinson…

I loved the dynamic that Rob and I were able to create.  I’m really excited for people to see what he does with this. He creates three distinct people. There’s Rob, there’s Bruce Wayne and there’s The Batman and they’re each distinct. It’s really cool. Coming at you next spring.

On working with director Matt Reeves and the rest of the cast…

We all made this film together, Rob and Zoë [Kravitz] and Colin [Farrell] and John Turturro, all of us working under Matt Reeves’ direction, to create these characters and a Gotham that was specific to our film.  And so whatever we do individually is kind of a reflection of what we’re all doing and what Matt’s vision is. And it’s a very specific one. It’s a bit more of a throwback to the DC, as in DETECTIVE COMICS, of it all.

And, on the overall experience he had working on THE BATMAN…

I loved it.  I loved the script and I loved what we were doing. We were doing it in circumstances that I didn’t love that were really very challenging. Once we shut down and when we got back to work in September it was tricky, particularly the isolation away from family over in London isolated in an empty hotel. But we made, I think, a brilliant film.
