Details are coming out about the new Batman film staring Robert Pattinson, the director spoke about the specific comics that inspired his take on the character, and how Kurt Cobain and Nirvana helped inspire the character.

“Early on, when I was writing, I started listening to Nirvana, and there was something about Nevermind song ‘Something In The Way’, which is in the first trailer, which is part of the voice of that character,” says Reeves.

“When I considered, ‘How do you do Bruce Wayne in a way that hasn’t been seen before?’ I started thinking, ‘What if some tragedy happened [i.e.: Wayne sees his parents murdered] and this guy becomes so reclusive, we don’t know what he’s doing? Is this guy some kind of wayward, reckless, drug addict?” Reeves said. “...The truth is that he is a kind of drug addict. His drug is his addiction to this drive for revenge. He’s like a Batman Kurt Cobain.”
