Robert Pattinson Discusses Finding the Right Voice in The Batman

Gotham PD Show IS Arkham Asylum Show Confirms Matt Reeves

There are so many great actors portraying the Caped Crusader with their own voices. Each variation sets the tone of the film. With the upcoming The Batman, the right voice needs to set a darker tone of this film as a detective noir.

And it took a lot of experimenting between actor Robert Pattinson and director Matt Reeves.

During a special event Q&A with the selected press that LRM Online was also present, Pattinson and Reeves addressed finding Batman’s voice. Pattinson indicated he started the process seven or eight months before production to find his personality.

“It was a lot of trial and error. I was experimenting with a lot of different things. The first two or three weeks of production, we were doing a variety of different voices,” said Pattinson. “There’s only a couple of lines in the first few scenes we shot. We settled on something that felt a little bit of progression from the Bat voices [of the past] and comfortable to do as well. It suddenly starts to feel right.”

Admittingly, the costume also helps.

He continued, “The more you embody the suit—the more you embody the character. What I was trying to do with the character is to think he’s not putting on a voice. As he puts on the suit, then the voice starts happening for him.”

Reeves affirmed the voice was established in the very first scene with its production.

“Well, we were exploring a lot. There were different versions in the beginning. The first scene shot was the crime scene,” said Reeves. “One of the many amazing things about Rob is he has such incredible technical control of himself in terms of the acting. He could do things with his voice. It was a crazy thing. I was going, ‘Oh? You can go lower?’”

Nonetheless, Batman’s voice needs to be distinct to strike fear into his enemies. Pattinson seems to pull it off perfectly. Fans will not be disappointed.

The Batman is in theaters on March 4.
