In the absence of superpowers, the Bat Man has had to use other resources and abilities. Yes, clearly his millions of dollars allow him to access state-of-the-art technology and manufacture his own weapons. But his intellect and his investigative qualities are also of vital importance. Not for nothing Batman is considered “the best detective in the world”, although to date it is a fact that surprises many, for example, Robert Pattinson.
In a recent interview with GQ, Robert Pattinson confessed his ignorance about the famous vigilante of Gotham City. Of course, sooner or later he would find out about the character’s detective attributes. After all, he stars batman, the upcoming film directed by Matt Reeves. And in fact, it was precisely thanks to the director’s basic proposal that Pattinson understood how the Bat Man can resemble Sherlock Holmes more than any other DC superhero.
To begin with, the British histrion remembers seeing an initial cut of the tape, where “the first shot is so jarring compared to any other Batman movie,” he said in that interview. He also realized that “the detective story not to go» that Matt Reeves wanted to tell was not only due to the setting or the visual aspect. He was really paying attention to the investigative roots of the vigilante.
“It was what Matt said from the first meeting I had with him: ‘I want to do a detective story not to go from the 70s, like The Conversation‘. And I assumed he was referring to style or something, his appearance. But from the close-up, you find out, ‘Oh, this is actually a detective story.’ And I feel like an idiot, because I didn’t even know that Batman was ‘the world’s greatest detective,'” Pattinson said.
The first appearance of Batman in comics happened in 1939, through Detective Comics #27. It was one volume in an anthology series—published by what would eventually become DC Comics—focused on detective fiction and espionage stories. Of course, the Bat-Man would become the most popular detective in those prints and eventually the star. And at some point, he would receive the superlative of “the best in the world” (“the world’s greatest detective”in English).
“I’ve never heard that before in my life, but it really works, just because there are so many moments where he’s in the police,” Robert Pattinson added. “Normally when you see Batman, he comes in and beats people up. But [en The Batman] he’s having conversations and there are emotional scenes between them, which I don’t think have been in any of the other movies.”
