Jeffrey Wright clarifies details about his character in the Batman

Actor Jeffrey Wright has been invited to the SiriusMX program The Jess Cagle Show this week and in an interview he wanted to hint that his character in the film The Batman He may not be the James Gordon cop we know.

When asked what exactly his version of Commissioner Gordon was like, the actor replied “I play Gordon. I’ll just say that. So yeah I play Jim Gordon“, it clarified giving something of mystery to the situation.

If this Jim Gordon is not a police station in the Gotham Police, it is possible that the character appears in the first years of his career. For example, in Gary Oldman’s Nolan the Gordon trilogy, he is not promoted to curator until well into the second film.

The veteran Westworld and James Bond actor explained that Reeves and his fellow cast members are working for “create something together that represents our vision, but is also Batman. This is the next evolution of Gotham“.

In passing, the actor dedicated some good words to the new Batmobile, which Matt Reeves himself presented on Twitter last month with several images that showed the vehicle in detail.

He read the script for the Batmobile and was like, ‘Yeah, that’s it.’ They have created the most powerful muscle car you can imagine, but influenced by Gotham. Influenced by Americana“Wright pointed out.

Filming on the film was canceled in March due to the coronavirus pandemic and there is still no word on when they will resume activity. This delay has served to delay the premiere of the film from June to October 2021.

Each new detail that those responsible for The Batman give us makes us think that we are facing an adaptation of the character closer to Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker than to Nolan’s own Batman.
