The Batman star Jeffrey Wright is all praise for his co-star Robert Pattinson, whose performance he spoke highly of in an interview with Comic Book.

The Westworld star, who plays Commissioner Gordon in The Batman, opened up about how it was a team effort, with him and his co-stars Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Colin Farrell and John Turturro, to create a particular kind of Gotham city, under the direction of Matt Reeves. He also said that the film would appear as a sort of throwback to the old DC detective comics.

Talking about the script and working on the sets of the film, Wright said that he ‘loved’ them. He talked about certain challenging circumstances where he had to isolate himself and stay away from family. But it ultimately paid off, as they made a film which Wright describes as ‘brilliant’.

On Robert Pattinson, who plays the titular character, Wright says that they were able to create a dynamic between their characters, which he loved. He says it seemed as if they were three entirely different people, talking of Pattinson and the two characters he plays in the film; Bruce Wayne and his crime-fighting persona as the Batman.

The Batman will release in the United States in 2022, after being postponed twice due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It is directed by Matt Reeves, known for helming the sequels to the Planet of the Apes reboot, Cloverfield and Let Me In.
