We’re a great distance from seeing Matt Reeves’ second installment of his Batman trilogy, however the director is already desirous about how one can keep away from an issue that’s plagued Bat-sequel motion pictures for years: they all the time appear to concentrate on the villains as an alternative of Batman himself.

Reeves recognized the difficulty (with out naming any names) throughout an interview with Collider: “To me, the thing that I really feel is that I also believe that Rob [Pattinson] is so special in the role. My goal has always been to do these point-of-view stories that allow the character to always be the emotional center of the story. Because a lot of times what happens is, after you do the first one, then suddenly other Rogues Gallery characters come in, and they kind of take over, and then Batman takes a backseat sort of character-wise, or emotionally.”

It sounds slightly silly in case you consider it as “The Batman sequel will focus on Batman,” however Reeves has a degree. When you bear in mind the sequels in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, you bear in mind the villains Joker and Bane way over the position Batman performs within the movies. At the very least, they drove the film ahead as an alternative of the titular hero, in contrast to in Batman Begins and The Batman, which featured Bruce Wayne honing his expertise earlier than returning to Gotham City and actively pursuing a serial killer, respectively.

There’s no cause to assume Reeves can’t pull this off; he directed each of the sequels to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which continued to concentrate on Caesar and his journey and had been each fairly glorious.
