David S. Goyer wrote the story for The Dark Knight and does an extensive review of The Batman movie.
Although the trilogy The dark knight will always be associated with Christopher Nolan, Christian Bale o Heath Ledgerwe must remember that the scriptwriter David S. Goyer also participated. That is why it is interesting to know what you think about The Batmanthe new reboot of the beloved character from DC Comics.
“Many of the Batman stories are told from an objective point of view. You show different characters in relation to Batman, and we’re from the outside looking in. But the interesting thing about something like this is that you almost have to realize Bruce or Batman can narrate it. That allows us a more internal or more subjective perspective of the character that we don’t see represented very often. Ironically, though, one of the things that I liked about Matt Reeves’ The Batman is that we were hearing his voiceover diary, which frankly isn’t something that had occurred to me before in that regard for The Knight. Dark “.
“But we were able to address that when he leaves his lab notes to himself or records things. We are receiving the internal observations of him or we hear him in telephone conversations or on the radio or things like that. So instead of being on the outside looking in, this story unfolds more from the inside looking out, and that was a fun opportunity for me.” David S. Goyer began.
“Seeing the film was rewarding for me. It’s interesting because when you read the Batman comics, there are miniseries, graphic novels, Earth One versions, Elseworlds stories and Black Label stories, and all these different writers and artists doing their particular version of a Batman story. So a lot of them are quite different and a lot of them are quite unusual, and that’s one of the fun parts of consuming comics.”
“So I saw The Batman recently in Prague, and I didn’t know exactly what to expect or what I would think of it. I watched it with several members of my Foundation series team. Everyone expected me to hate it because I worked on The Dark Knight. But I really enjoyed it a lot. It was a fun experience. I really like Robert Pattinson’s Batman, and I like what they did with The Riddler. Reeves is a really good filmmaker, so he was ready for the ride.”
David S. Goyer also recalled his conversations with the trilogy’s director, Christopher Nolan, referring to how they both wanted to explore the detective side of Bruce Wayne.
“It was something that we were aware of and something that we played with a little more in The Dark Knight, in particular. And it was also something that I was interested in exploring with Batman Unburied. He is not a detective per se, at least when the story begins, but he is a forensic pathologist. So the character is at this intersection between solving crimes and still being a medical expert. The inciting incident that usually turns Bruce into Batman is the murder of his parents, so I was interested in exploring what would happen if his parents had never been killed. Would he have dedicated himself to fighting crime? Would he have dedicated himself to the medical field? »
“He probably wouldn’t have become Batman, so at least in this version, that’s how we got to him he’s still a detective. He is more of a forensic detective. But yeah, he was interested in exploring the detective side of him both in the Dark Knight movies with Chris and in this new Matt Reeves story.”
