Michael Giacchino recently provided an insight into working with Matt Reeves on bringing The Batman to life while confirming that he’s seen the Batsuit.
When asked about working on Matt Reeves’ The Batman, Michael Giacchino revealed that they’re aiming to make the film as different from previous live-action versions of the character as possible. Michael Giacchino then pointed out that he and Matt Reeves have been discussing how to approach The Batman for over year, striving to make the film the version they’d like to see. Michael Giacchino also explained that it’s one of the most fun parts of being a comic book reader was seeing the different takes on classic characters.
“Matt and I have talked about this for well over a year now, we’re like best friends so we talk all the time anyway so this are just normal parts of our conversations, ‘wouldn’t it be cool if we did this, wouldn’t it be fun if we did this, let’s take it in this direction and do something different’. That’s what we’re trying to do, is just take it and do our version of it, the thing that we would want to do. Hopefully that is different from everyone else’s. I used to love going in and seeing everyone’s different take on [Batman], you’d get a comic book series and it would be a whole new take on the character and that was always fun to do. So I feel like we’re a part of that whole tapestry at this point.”
When asked about Matt Reeves casting Robert Pattinson as Batman, Michael Giacchino immediately pointed out that the star is an incredibly talented actor that has been pigeonholed in the past for playing certain roles, but that his roles are incredibly versatile. Michael Giacchino also said that he’s excited to see him doing something different with the character before confirming he’s seen the Batsuit.
Michael Giacchino: It’s always a process, you’re always going to whittle things down and figure things out but from day one he knew he was an amazing actor, he’s an incredible actor. In this business you get pigeonholed for certain things, if you do one thing, you know, and it goes off well then that’s the only thing you’re going to be known for. So for someone like him that’s not a fair assessment. He’s an amazing actor who can do pretty much anything, you know? And that’s what I’m excited about, to see him in this role doing something different.
Interviewer: Have you seen the suit yet?
Michael Giacchino: I’ve seen it! [Laughs]
