“I think that really looking at Batman as somebody who has gone through this trauma, and then everything that he’s doing is then a reaction to that, rather than shy away from that, I think this film leans into that in some very fun and surprising ways,” said Tomlin. Aside from revealing the troubled direction of the character, Tomline also noted how they put together a “younger” take on Batman with Robert Pattinson at the lead. The talk goes on to touch on the use of filmography to capture “the soul” of the character and stray away from anchoring the story on action sequences.
