THE BATMAN Producer: We Want to Make the Best Batman Film Ever


I love THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY and I always will.  BUT…

I’ve said many times here on BOF that nothing would make me happier than for THE BATMAN to surpass BATMAN BEGINS as my favorite Batman movie ever.  And I’d lead a conga line if THE BATMAN TRILOGY ends up being better than Christopher Nolan’s 3 Bat-Films.

Luckily, that’s the goal for Team THE BATMAN.  Here’s what producer Dylan Clark had to say — including what he said directly to Chris Nolan (via EMPIRE)…

I’ve said this to Chris Nolan directly: ‘Look, we’re trying to be the best Batman ever made, and we’re going to try to beat you’.  Matt is interested in pushing this character to his emotional depths and shaking him to his core.

Speaking of the aforementioned BATMAN BEGINS, there’s been a lot of talk by some fans that THE BATMAN is nothing more than a rehash of Nolan’s original Bat-Movie.  That’s total hogwash.  Here’s what director Matt Reeves said he’s going for in THE BATMAN with his young Bruce Wayne (Robert Pattinson)…

We’ve seen a lot of great stories about Bruce Wayne witnessing his parents’ murder and then trying to find a way to cope with that by perfecting himself into Batman.  But I wanted to do a story where he’s already been through the origins and does not yet really know exactly how to be Batman. It is a Year Two story. And I wanted you to connect to him. Not only as Bruce, but as Batman.

Right on.  And you know what else is different about THE BATMAN than the Nolan films?  It’s even more grounded, gritty, and realistic than the TDKTrilogy.

Can’t wait! – Bill “Jett” Ramey
