The Batman: the movie is set in the present day
During a tour of the print dedicated to Tales from the Loop (series the First Video which was one of the producers) the director of the Batman Matt Reeves has talked about how the film is fully lowered in the context of today, admitting how difficult it is to not talk about politics when a billionaire decides to fight crime.
“The film that we are making, now pause, is fully inserted in the context of today”, the director explains to the Daily Beast “does Not ignore anything of what we are experiencing. I think it is incredibly exciting, as a great story that can take new folds and meanings with new social contexts and new contexts of human experience, finding new ways to illuminate something significant to you and, hopefully, for the public”.
Reeves continued, revealing how, this forced break, allowed him to notice some aspects more carefully: “Even on the basis of the previous film, with interruptions forced to stop during a project this big can bring enormous benefits to the level of creativity. The sad thing, at the moment, is that we have lost a member of our team, is something which still suffer very much.”
These, however, the previous words of the director, to Nerdist:
“I reflected on the fact that there had already been so many fantastic movies about Batman and I did not want my simply added to the list,” explains the director, “Some have been fantastic because they have left their mark: what did Nolan has been incredible, Tim Burton has made something truly original.
I Love Batman Returns. Michelle Pfeiffer was fantastic, I love it very much. It is truly amazing, I think it is beautiful and just. The scene of the Penguin in the sewers is something that leaves you speechless, the great thing about Tim Burton is his particular interpretation of the fantastic and very, very personal.
The Dark Knight is an incredible film, I believe that the performance of Heath Ledger is indelible now in the history, as the battle with the same Bruce. The thing that remains, however, of this film is, thinking of the Joker, that desire of nothing, that terrifying nihilism that is part of human nature, deeply analyzed.
What I would like to do is to make a Batman not yet formed, make it current, analyze a guy destroyed that is doing every thing to overcome his childhood trauma.
What I want to do is not tell an origin story, but a story that explains the birth of the Batman, from what it was formed. There is a guy that is in great part in difficulties, is trying to win a fight with himself, but this does not mean that you understand it thoroughly.
It is all based on the dark part of Me and of what really guides us in life, how you can take advantage of what you don't understand; there is a lot of psychology, emotion, the elements that will be explored along with the corruption that is rampant in Gotham.
I think it's all very current, there is a time when you can't talk about corruption without being present, but, today, a history of the genre seems to be more current than ever.”
Difficult to predict when actually Robert Pattinson and the rest of the cast will return on the set, in view of the health emergency that is currently in place. The shooting of the film were taking place in London, which began on 20 January.
In the cast are Robert Pattinson (Batman), Paul Dano (the Riddler), John Turturro (Carmine Falcone), Zoe Kravitz ("Selina Kyle/ Catwoman), Colin Farrell (The Penguin), Andy Serkis (Alfred), Jeffrey Wright (Jim Gordon), Peter Sarsgaard and Jayme Lawson.
The release of the Batman is currently scheduled for June 25, 2021 hoping that, in fact, this unfortunate suspension does not delay the exit.
