Matt Reeves Pays Tribute To Christopher Nolan’s Take On Batman!

Jul 11, 2017

Many fans of the DCEU are impatiently waiting for further news and information on Matt Reeves, The Batman movie. For the time being though, we can only look to previous Batman movies to fill our urgent need to see Batman kick ass. The question is, which Batman adaptation will Matt Reeves take inspiration from?

Reeves is looking at Nolan’s films as motivation and inspiration for what the genre of his take can be, stating

What studios are willing to make at the moment is a very, very narrow band of films. What I discovered is that this genre has the potential to be about something more. You can use the metaphors of the genre to talk about a lot.

Making a comparison to his hit franchise Planet of the Apes, which takes a fictional premise and grounds it with emotional characters and stakes.

I think that the metaphors of both of the franchises [Batman and Apes] enable you to tell stories that have deep emotional resonance. That’s actually what excites me about it. It’s interesting because I was obsessed with both as a child, and yet there is something potentially very adult about what you can explore under the cover of that fantasy. That is what draws me to it, and that’s what I’m excited about.

Reeves recognizes the importance of The Batman and why it’s essential the result can be nothing less than satisfying to the fans.

I think the other thing that I really admire in what [Nolan] did was knowing what it is to make a big studio film, which often can fall into that sense of committee film-making where there’s an anonymity to the point of view of the film.
