In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Daily News, while discussing his latest film, War for the Planet of the Apes, The Batman director Matt Reeves revealed his thoughts on The Batman in general as a superhero and being a very complex character.
“It’s a strange thing to be involved in the two franchises which were the two that I was connected to most as a child,” Reeves said. “I just was obsessed with Batman when I was a kid. What I find so interesting about him as a character is that, as far a superhero goes, he’s not superhuman, he is a person.
And he is a tortured soul who is grappling with his past and trying to find a way to be in a world that has a lot that’s wrong with it and trying to find a way to reconcile all of that.
“That is a really powerful character, in the same way that Caesar is such a powerful character.”
