We are out of sight Matt ReevesHis second batch Batman trilogy, but the director is already thinking about how to avoid the problem that has plagued blockbusters for years: they always seem to focus on bastards rather than Batman himself.

Reeves outlined the problem (without naming any names) during an interview with collider: “For me, the thing I really feel is I also think Rob [Pattinson] He is very particular in the role. My goal has always been to do these point of view stories that allow the character to always be the emotional center of the story. Because a lot of times, what happens is, after you do the first one, then all of a sudden other characters from Rogues Gallery come along, kind of take over, and then Batman kind of takes a backseat in terms of personality, or emotionally.”

It sounds a bit stupid if you think about it.”Batman The sequel will focus on Batman,” but Reeves has a point. When you remember the sequel in Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy, the villains Joker and Bane are remembered much more than the role Batman plays in the films. At least they pushed the movie forward instead of the titular hero, unlike V.I Batman begins And Batmanwhich featured Bruce Wayne honing his skills before returning to Gotham City and actively pursuing a serial killer, respectively.

There’s no reason to think Reeves can’t pull it off; Both took out the sequel to The rise of Planet of the Apeswhich continued to focus on Caesar and his journey and both were absolutely excellent.
