Matt Reeves has been hard at work since he was hired for directing the next Batman movie.
Reeves’ cast has been slowly and gradually forming to base the foundations of the Batman universe. The process is slowly completing and the foundation is nearly complete; considering that recording starts January in London, I think the process of casting is going to finish very soon.
Since he’s taken leadership, he’s hired Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Jefferey Wright and now an additional member has been added.
Andy Serkis has been cast as Alfred Pennyworth in the upcoming movie.
Currently we’re not aware on what sort of Alfred he will play but it might be similar to the other Alfred incarnations, as a father figure, as a career and wiseman for Bruce as he saves Gotham.
Currently we know that the movie will follow the well-known comic book: Batman – The Long Halloween.
We’re not sure which approach the Dark Knight’s story will take but some ‘alleged’ plot details (or a sort of synopsis) has been revealed by one source on YouTube:
“The Batman will explore a detective case — when people start dying in strange ways, Batman must go deep into the dark world of Gotham to find clues and solve the mystery/conspiracy connected to Gotham City’s history and criminals,”
What is also being mentioned is that the villains will be already well established in the Matt Reeves batman world and they will be the main suspects in solving this mystery.
We know that this Batman is going to explore themes that have never been touched upon before; this variation focuses more on detective batman and will focus on deeper choices along with bigger risks.
What do you think of this casting?
