Peter Sarsgaard Compares The Batman To A Pixies Gig

Matt Reeves' The Batman to Film in Glasgow Scotland for Gotham City

There's something about it that has an edge, it's young. If the recast characters aren't a giveaway enough, then maybe the way this Batman looks (plus the rest of his gadgets) should be able to tell fans that this universe is different-much like what happened with Todd Phillips' Joker.

Films like Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" have also influenced some of the city's views and visions, but now it's Glasgow's turn to become Batman's go-to place. To me, just my perception of it, it reminds me of when I was in college, and I went to go see The Pixies play, and looking around and feeling the vibe at a Pixies concert. Sarsgaard confirms that The Batman feels like a different sort of movie, and he compares making the film to attending a Pixies concert, so apparently we're about to get the most alt-rock Batman ever.

"The Pixies have been my favourite group of all time. That's what it felt wish to me, a track like 'I Bleed.' That it has the power and that kind of factor, and isn't so particularly focused to a really younger viewers, or a really previous viewers, however has that energy of chaos in it".

Here's what he said about the movie in full below. And it's very emotional.


I remember I was visiting New York City when Christopher Nolan was shooting The dark knight rises. The Pixies had been extremely emotional band, and I believe this Batman could be very emotional in that approach. "I believe will probably be very highly effective".

"I am excited to do it", he stated. "You recognize, my spouse did Batman years in the past, and I've had one earlier expertise with a factor like that with Inexperienced Lantern..." I've been doing some searching, and so far and it doesn't seem like skin from any of the Arkham games. "I think in the end, the film wasn't as successful as it could have been, but I had a blast doing that one", adds the 48-year-old actor.

Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, Jayme Lawson as Bella, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, and Peter Sarsgaard. That, of course, will all depend on how the movie does at the worldwide box office once it hits the silver screen in June 2021.
