The Batman is going to be hitting our cinema screens in 2021, and I cannot wait to see it.
It already has one of the best casts I’ve ever seen assembled in a comic book movie with the likes of Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Wright and Robert Pattinson all in the movie.
That’s an incredible cast and I really can’t wait to see them all on-screen together.
One of the actors I didn’t mention was Peter Sarsgaard, who’s one of the most interesting actors working in Hollywood today.
He’s been talking to CinemaBlend about The Batman and revealed that it will be an emotional film, and likened it to a Pixie’s song.

Here’s what he said about the movie in full below.
Matt directing this Batman [is exciting]. The cast is so awesome. It seems different from other Batman movies to me, just with the cast. There’s something about it that has an edge, it’s young. 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. That’s what it felt like to me, a song like ‘I Bleed.’ That it has the energy and that sort of thing, and isn’t so specifically targeted to a very young audience, or a very old audience, but has that power of chaos in it…
The Pixies were my favourite group of all time. I went to like 20 concerts, and it was that feeling of all of us in this. And it’s very emotional. The Pixies were an incredibly emotional band, and I think this Batman is very emotional in that way. I think it will be very powerful.
I love the idea of seeing an emotional Batman movie. There have been emotional beats in a few of the Batman movies, but you could never describe them as being ’emotional’ movies.
