The Batman is Going Back To The Sacred Rule of Batman (That’s Great!!!)
We are getting closer to the release date for the highly expected The Batman. With the release getting closer, there is a lot about the movie that we are getting to witness based on the promotional material for the film. Fans got to see some of the most extraordinary moments about the movie in the trailer and this has generated certain speculations. There was a major belief that the film consist of a lot of violence and might even be R-rated but that isn’t the case. One of the most essential traits of the caped crusader is the No-Kill Policy. Fans are left wondering if this will also be applicable in the case of Robert Pattinson. It seems that The Batman will be following the No-Kill policy. It will abide by the sacred rule of Batman and that’s just awesome.
Over the last few decades, we have gotten a wide variety of the caped crusader. In fact, presently we have three Batman’s who will be seen in two different movies coming out this year. There are some differences that separate each rendition of Batman and the No-Kill Policy seems to be a major one here. Michael Keaton’s version of the caped crusader was a reboot to the character and fans saw him being a bit more ruthless. The same cannot be said for Christian Bale’s Batman in Nolan’s trilogy of Batman films as he clearly followed the policy. Later we got to witness Batfleck for the DC Extended Universe, and we did see him make some ruthless killings. Fans are left wondering how this trait will be adapted by Pattinson’s Batman.
Robert Pattinson Talks About the Sacred Rule of Batman
In an interview with Premiere, Robert Pattinson talked about how Batman’s No-Killing rule will be dealt with in the movie. According to him:
There is this rule with Batman: he must not kill. It can be interpreted in two ways. Either he only wants to inflict the appropriate punishment, or he wants to kill and his self-control prevents him from doing so.
He also added:
I imagined it that way from the rehearsal of the first fight, I thought it was funnier: something in him just wanted to slit the guy’s throat! I told myself that if he spends his nights chasing criminals, it is impossible that he does not take pleasure in it. He suffers and it is a desire that overwhelms him. And by dint of knocking, his mind clears, he calms down, he reaches a state close to plenitude. I’m sure in this first fight, he manages to convince himself that every guy in front of him is the one who killed his mother (Laughs.) And so that allows him to vent all his rage.
He further added an interesting note about his version of Batman,
The interesting thing is that this Batman practically lives in the gutter. He’s nowhere at home except on the street when he’s wearing the suit. He lives a criminal life, but without committing crimes! I felt like I could get something out of that. Anyway, I could only play a superhero if he was really dirty!
This indicates that Matt Reeves will be taking the caped crusader’s rule into consideration. Recently there was much discussion regarding the DCEU Batman because the ongoing Peacemaker series also talked about this rule for the caped crusader. But based on what we had seen from Zack Snyder’s take on the character, Batman did end up taking quite a lot of lives. This becomes a major factor for a character like that because we can use this to identify the skills of the character. We will be getting to see a much different rendition of Batman.
Pattinson’s Batman will be a lot more intelligent and the movie will explore the world’s greatest detective aspect of the character. He will prove to be a great fighter and maintain his integrity by upholding his no-kill rule. Fans would agree that this is the best possible way to go around the character as this is what makes Batman who he is! This will also allow us to see a narrative that will be a lot more balanced and gritty. Based on the trailers and clips we can be sure that this rendition will focus a lot more on the vigilante arc of the character.
The Batman will be released in theaters worldwide on March 4.
