‘Future Leader’ pointed us to the Telegraph which has published an excellent article on Batman Begins, including details on the Chicago and Shepperton shoots plus quotes from director Chris Nolan and stars Christian Bale and Katie Holmes. Here are a few of the quotes…
Unlike Tim Burton’s gothic Batman fantasies, Nolan has opted for gritty urban realism, delving into just how and why Bruce Wayne became Batman.
“This Batman is grounded in reality,” he explains, leaning against the bar of a nearby restaurant during a break in filming. “He has no super-powers; all he has is his wealth, which he uses to obtain the technology he needs to do what he has to do.”
“This Batman remains in the shadows and is fuelled by a great deal of rage,” says Bale, 30. “He has tremendous anger. He’s not a knight in shining armour, because of his personal need for revenge.”
“I wanted to make sure that the Batmobile, like everything else in the film, is possible and believable,” says Nolan.
Bale also says he’s already signed up for two sequels! Hit the link above for much more!
