"He was literally halfway through the shoot on my part when they stopped production. So it will be interesting to see when it goes back to how this has affected," Serkis said when asked if it would be a good movie. "But it is, it's going to be a beautiful movie."

When the interviewer wanted to know if The Batman would be "darker and more melancholic" than the previous installments, the actor said that "that is not far from the truth." "It's a lot about the emotional connection between Alfred and Bruce," said Serkis. "He's really at the center of it all. And it's a really exquisite script Matt has written."

Although we see a much darker film than the previous ones, nothing will surpass the design of The Batman Who Laughs that a fan imagined with the appearance of Robert Pattinson.
