Christopher Nolan Refuses To Talk About Robert Pattinson's Batman For A Very Valid Reason


  • Christopher Nolan effortlessly achieved both commercial success and critical acclaim with his The Dark Knight trilogy.
  • Nolan decided to not comment when an interviewer asked him whether he had watched Robert Pattinson's The Batman.
  • Nolan, aware of his significant influence on Batman, has limited his opinions to avoid misinterpretation by the media and individuals.

When we talk about cinematic masterpieces in the film business, comic book films are far from what anyone has in their minds as these movies are generally made for commercial success rather than critical ones. Yet somehow, director Christopher Nolan managed to achieve both with relative ease as he gave the world The Dark Knight trilogy.

The series was such a revolution in superhero cinema that it became a benchmark of the industry for the genre. Therefore, with such a legacy in this genre of filmmaking, people cannot help but ask him about other prominent projects, like the latest film about the caped crusader The Batman. But for the valid reason of his comments not being taken out of context or blown out of proportion, Nolan chooses to remain silent.

It’s not often that a visionary filmmaker enters an entirely new genre in the film industry and completely changes the game, but that’s exactly what Christopher Nolan achieved with The Dark Knight trilogy. From low-budget feature films to commercial and critical blockbusters, the director changed the landscape of superhero cinema for future generations.

Since then, he has let it all in the past to explore new and challenging projects in his career, which means not being typecasted into a single form of artistic expression, such as the aforementioned superhero cinema.

Thus, during a recent interview profile with Variety, the Interstellar creator decided to not comment when the interviewer asked him whether he had watched the latest film featuring the vigilante of Gotham City in the form of Robert Pattinson‘s The Batman, directed by filmmaker Matt Reeves, and if so, what were his thoughts about the film.

To this question, Nolan simply decided not to give a straight response but supported his decision by saying:


“If I start talking about comic book movies, that would be the only thing anybody pays any attention to in the article,”

The director knows how much influence he holds when it comes to the topic of Batman. Thus, to not let the media or individuals either get the wrong impression or misinterpret any of his comments and blow his words out of proportion, he restricted his opinions on the film.

During a time when superhero films were scoffed at for being something that could only be enjoyed for entertainment, Nolan created The Dark Knight trilogy as a testament to what comic book movies could achieve.

Combining the contemporary narrative style of classic cinema with new and fantastical source material of comic books, the series was the perfect balance of a story grounded in reality as well as an event that was larger than life. Deep character-building arcs and artistic expressions of comic book villains mixed with the timeless essence of cinema are what made this franchise a masterpiece.
