During an interview for the The Hollywood Reporterthe screenwriter of ‘Batman the dark knight’, David S. Goyerfinally revealed his opinion on the new adaptation of the hero, starring Robert Pattinson.
“I managed to watch ‘Batman‘ recently in Prague. Honestly, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect or what I would think of this movie over the last few months. I saw it accompanied by a few members of my ‘Foundation’ team, and everyone expected me to hate it, but I didn’t.”
He added that he was quite surprised by the performances of Pattinson and Paul Danothe Riddler:
“I really enjoyed it a lot. It was a fun and surprising experience. I loved Batman Pattinson, and I like what they did with Riddler was exciting. Matt Reeves is a very good filmmaker, so I enjoyed the journey.”
So, which title do you prefer? The 2008 or newer version?

“Two years patrolling the streets as Batman (Pattinson), causing fear in the hearts of criminals, led Bruce Wayne into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies – Alfred Pennyworth (Serkis) and Lieutenant James Gordon (Wright) – among the city’s corrupt network of officials and important figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of revenge among his dear citizens.
When an assassin attacks Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the criminal underworld, where he encounters characters like Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin (Farrell), Carmine Falcone (JTurturro) and Edward Nashton/Riddler (Damage). As the evidence begins to get personal and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.”
The cast still has Zoë Kravitz (Cat Woman), Paul Dano (Charade), Jeffrey Wright (Commissioner Gordon), John Turturro (Carmine Falcone) Andy Serkis (Alfred Pennyworth) and Colin Farrell (Penguin).
