In the weeks preceding next month’s The Batman film, Warner Bros hosted an early screening of the film followed by a Q&A with Matt Reeves and members of the cast and crew, moderated by Tiffany Smith, familiar to DC fans as one of the hosts of DC All Access.
Smith kicked off the night by asking the creatives how it felt to be with a real live audience that has watched a film they’ve been working on over the course of this pandemic.
“It’s really crazy to be out here with so many people and usually a film like this, it’s exciting to get to see it with an audience for the first time, but after the last couple of years we’ve had, this is even bigger of a deal,” she began. ”How does it feel to get to be with people who have actually, finally seen the movie in an audience?”
Matt Reeves was highly appreciative of those in attendance.
“It’s fantastic. We made this movie over the course of literally five years, [with an] insane pandemic in the middle of it,” Reeves said. “To finally be done with the movie and to be able to share it with you means the world. So, thank you guys for coming.”
Following an attendee’s question for Robert Pattinson about his Batman voice, Smith followed up with Reeves to hear about his first time hearing the voice.
“What was that like for you, Matt, the first time where you heard him do it and you were like ‘that’s it’?” Smith asked.
Reeves took the time to recognize and complement Pattinson’s acting ability which includes his control over his voice.
“I have to say that one of the amazing of many amazing things about Rob is that he has such incredible, technical control of himself, of his instrument as he would say in terms of the acting. He could do things with his voice. It was a crazy thing, I was going like ‘oh, you can go lower?’ and I’m like ‘that’s amazing!’” Reeves said. “He just went through this process of searching for where it felt like that voice should sit. And one of the things I was asking Rob about is that he has an incredible ear for mimicry and accents, he can pick up anyone’s accent – there’s no dialect coach. That’s just who he is.”
