Serkis : ‘The Bat­man’ will ex­plore an emo­tional con­nec­tion

Fiji Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Lon­don: Andy Serkis has teased that Matt Reeves’ The Bat­man movie will have a dark tone and will ex­plore the bond be­tween Bruce Wayne and Al­fred Pen­ny­worth.

Serkis will be es­say­ing the role of Al­fred in the much-awaited su­per­hero movie, along­side Robert Pat­tin­son’s Bat­man/Bruce Wayne. Dur­ing an in­ter­view with LADBi­ble, the ac­tor-film­maker was asked if the movie would be even “darker and brood­ier” than the pre­vi­ous ver­sions of the story, he com­mented: “I would say that’s not far from the truth.”

Serkis said Reeves has penned an amaz­ing script and he is ex­cited about the fi­nal prod­uct. “It’s very much about the emo­tional con­nec­tion be­tween Al­fred and Bruce. That’s re­ally at the cen­ter of it. And it is a re­ally ex­quis­ite script that Matt has writ­ten,” he added. The 56-year-old ac­tor said he had been half­way through shoot­ing his part when pro­duc­tion was tem­po­rar­ily shut down in March due to the coro­n­avirus pan­demic.

The re­lease date for The Bat­man was re­cently pushed to Oc­to­ber 2021.
