David S. Goyer has gone “bat” for the new film adaptation of The Caped Crusader.

Goyer, who co-wrote batman begins with Christopher Nolan and contributed story ideas for both sequels, praised several aspects of The Batmanin particular the acting, directing and “film noir” style:

“I think Matt Reeves is a really good filmmaker. I had no idea what I would think [Robert] Pattinson but I liked him. And I thought to myself, I’m buying it. He has a different view. But I buy it. I thought about chemistry with Zoë [Kravitz] was unbelievable. I liked how Noir it was and I liked that they went into the detective angle and I liked what they did with Riddler. I liked it.”

Although The Batman was well-received by fans and critics alike, Goyer’s films sit atop the pantheon of Batman adaptations, not budging for anything less than a universally acclaimed billion-dollar cultural influencer. Goyer must feel pretty good about how his trilogy has defined Batman for multiple generations of moviegoers, but he acknowledges there’s room for different interpretations of the iconic superhero, one of which is, of course, The Batman.

He likened the different Batman movies to different comic book series, tell IGN“When you read comics . . . you read like so and so is on or like, Ed Brubaker’s run on daredevil. And even after [Brian Michael] Bendis and they’re different where you are like, Oh, I like that one. Oh, I like that one.
