‘The Batman’ – Matt Reeves Explains How Stephen King’s ‘Christine’ Helped Inspire His Take on the Batmobile

From director Matt Reeves, The Batman will release in theaters on March 4, 2022, a brand new reboot that includes everyone from Catwoman to the Riddler and the Penguin.

We’re now just a few months away from the release, and Matt Reeves has been making the interview rounds in promotion of his first foray into the world of Gotham City. Speaking with Empire Magazine, Reeves notes that Christine was an inspiration on his Batman! We’re of course talking about the Stephen King killer car novel, which became a John Carpenter movie.

Reeves explains the film’s Batmobile, “It has to make an appearance out of the shadows to intimidate, so I thought of it almost like Stephen King’s Christine.”

I liked the idea of the car itself as a horror figure, making an animalistic appearance to really scare the hell out of the people Batman’s pursuing,” Reeves continues.

“Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) — amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.

“When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.”
