The big screen’s newest police Commissioner James Gordon, actor Jeffrey Wright, is doing a little talking about The Batman while production of Matt Reeves’ now-October 2021 film is on pause. 

Thursday, Wright was a guest on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show, where according to the Hollywood Reporter he offered these bits and pieces about the film.

“We’re working together to create a mood, to create an idea, a setting, a tone,” Wright reportedly said. “My take is — the way I explain what we’re doing is, like with any film, we’re working together to create a mood, to create an idea, a setting, a tone. This is the next evolution since 1939 when these stories began.

“We are trying to create something together that is our own, but is also Batman.”

The Westworld star, who will also pull comic book double duty as the voice of the Watcher in Disney+’s animated What If…? series, used the new Batmobile to illustrate his point.

“I read the script for the Batmobile and I was like, ‘Yeah, that’s it,'” he reportedtly said. “(Bruce Wayne) created the most badass muscle car you could imagine, but it’s grounded in Gotham. It’s grounded in Americana.”
