The recent premiere of The Batman has satisfied fans of the Batman, especially since it provides a much darker and deeper vision of the Gotham City guardian.
After the premiere of the film, part of the cast led by Robert Pattinson and director Matt Reeves, have offered several statements detailing more aspects of the new production. Now, the studio behind the tape has shared a video showing a deleted scene showing intense dialogue between Batman and one of his main enemies, the Joker.
Barry Keoghan appears on the scene, who was in charge of playing the archenemy. The actor delivers a bright and dark performance, which lives up to the rest of the film. Until recently it was not known why this scene did not make it to the final version of the film and it was even thought that it was a determination of the studio, however, Reeves himself clarified the reasons for this exclusion.
“There is a scene that I would love for the audience to see that I didn’t include. Not because someone asked me to cut it, but because I didn’t think that within the larger narrative it would work, that it was necessary. But it’s a great scene with that same unseen prisoner in Arkham.”
In this way, the director confirmed that the elimination of that scene responded to a plot motivation and not to an imposition by Warner Bros.
One of the elements that has caught the attention of the representation of the Joker by Keoghan, is that the face of the criminal seems much more marked by scars, when compared to the versions of other actors. Also surprising is the intensity of the dialogue, which many compare to the interviews between Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling in The Silence of the Lambs.
