The screenwriter Ed Brubaker has denied that the ‘spin-off’ of the film directed by Matt Reeves will be inspired by his collection of comics ‘Gotham Central’.
New details of the prequel to The Batman. The Return of the Dark Knight is one of the most anticipated cinematic events of 2022, and as new images and data arrive from the Matt Reeves film starring Robert Pattinson, news from Gotham PD continues to arrive. At first, it was rumored that the series that HBO Max is preparing, in collaboration with Reeves himself, was going to be based on the Gothan Central comic series created by Ed Brubaker and Greg Rucka, published in 2002. But as Brubaker has confirmed, to Kevin SmithIn his podcast ‘Fatman Beyond’, the plot of fiction will star the legendary curator James Gordon.
I thought maybe it was true that this time I was going to adapt Gotham Central, and I asked one of the producers who work with Matt Reeves and he said, ‘no, this really isn’t Gotham Central. They have made sure not to call it Gotham Central and it is more of a ‘spin-off’ of the movie. It’s kind of like a James Gordon series’. Brubaker acknowledges that he had his illusions when Reeves confirmed that the fiction, whose working title is Gotham PD, would be set in Bruce Wayne’s first year as Batman. The filmmaker explained that the plot would focus on the corruption that “for years” has planned by Gotham, and that it would be told from the point of view of a corrupt policeman. A plot similar to the one addressed in Gotham Central, which confused the screenwriter until he learned that the director’s intention was to include several of the characters that appear in The Batman.
I didn’t even think about it when I thought, is this Gotham Central ?, and it was, of course, this is Gotham Central but with characters from the movie. So, I thought, ‘It’s Gotham Central’ but with characters created by Matt Reeves [Brubaker]
Will Jeffrey Wright, the Gordon from The Batman, the protagonist of Gotham PD? Be that as it may, the only certainty is that Matt Reeves will continue immersed in the Batman universe, hand in hand with HBO Max. To make the wait more bearable, you can re-enjoy the trailer for The Batman, which we leave you on these lines. Along with Pattinson, Andy Serkis, Zoe Kravitz, John Turturro, Colin Farrell, and Paul Dano lead the cast of the film that will hit theaters in the United States on March 4, 2022, but which for Spain still has no scheduled release date.
