The Batman Director Matt Reeves Appreciates Robert Pattinson’s Love For Condiment King (Exclusive)

DC Studios is preparing to usher in a new era of projects involving the iconic comic book characters we know and love. James Gunn and Peter Safran came on board as co-CEOs of the newly minted studio and will unveil a new slate later this month. Gunn will be writing a brand new Superman movie that will focus on a younger version of the character and not star Henry Cavill. There was also a rumor that the studio was looking for a way to integrate Robert Pattinson’s The batter universe with the DC Universe, but that was quickly debunked by Gunn. Matt Reeves is busy writing the script for The batter sequel and recently had time to chat with’s Chris Killian where he gave us a little update on the movie. During the same interview, he expressed appreciation for Pattinson’s love of Condiment King when asked if he had any villains in mind for the upcoming sequel.

“Oh god, I don’t know. I really couldn’t answer that because I really don’t know, and people are also going to speculate rampantly,” Reeves told us. “I will say that for me the funniest thing is that Rob [Pattinson] the last time we were on the press tour he kept talking about how great he thought it would be if we did Condiment King because he loved the idea of ​​someone just dipping someone in mustard. I’m not saying Condiment King is going to make a reference, but I’ll just use that as an answer to your question, because I don’t have an answer to your question.”

Pattinson did a great job in the cape and cowl, but it turns out one of his personality traits really helped him with the role. The actor is known for his social awkwardness within the press and it seems like it really helped him during filming The batter. Director Matt Reeves previously appeared on KCRW, where he revealed exactly how Pattinson’s physical clumsiness helped him portray the Dark Knight.

“Obviously it’s not just a facet of who he is because of course that’s partly him, but it’s also something that he has control over,” Reeves told the Podcast. “One of the things I found so fascinating about working with him is that he works in a way that almost feels like a method actor. And yet you can see that he has great access to his emotions, and he brings himself in a condition. But he also has incredible control over his instrument, the way he moves. It’s all very technical and it’s very intentional. So I could say to him, I need this to be hotter, and he would have very easy access to that. [And I could say] but also, because of this hood and the way the light hits your eye, I want you to lean a little more to the left, because otherwise I can’t see your eye. And he could do both things at the same time.”

“He had a tremendous ability to access his emotions, but he also had control over his movements, so all that stuff comes from a very internal place. But he has a great facility with himself physically. He’s just really good at able to access everything.” of that stuff, but funnily enough at the same time, while he can be out of control, he can also be incredibly in control of how to calibrate his voice, the way he leans, where he stands. choices I think he makes are also very conscious on some level, even though I know some of them must be subconscious because they come from a very instinctive place. Added the Batman director.
