On the morning of this Thursday, March 24, Matt Reeves finally released the scene eliminated with Joker at The Batman. The fans had the opportunity to see how Barry Keoghan Interpreting this character and the truth is that we all stay wanting to see more about it. If the scene is so good, why Reeves decided to eliminate it?
In an interview with IGN , Reeves explained that this scene would help the viewer to understand that the arc of riddler had come to an end, and the city was free of danger. He wanted to give the audience an opportunity to enjoy the calm before the storm, so adding to Joker so precipitated would have broken a little about this idea.
“What they are looking at is actually a Joker before being the Joker. The reason why he kept this scene, despite having cut it, it is because in the end it was important to me. Experiment with this scene for a while. We put it to the test, and it helped us to put an end to the story of Riddler, and to know that Batman was able to put an end to him.
But we also had this idea that, now that the Falcone mafia was over, there was a moment of hope, but also a vacuum of power that the most dangerous criminals of Gothic city would want to fill. “
Neither the Reeves knows if the Joker will return for the sequel of The Batman , and the presence of him in the film was only aimed at implying that this version of the hero had already faced some of the most dangerous villains of him.
Editor’s Note: I think Reeves has a point, and it would be great to see more of the Joker in a sequel, but Batman has a wide gallery of villains that can explore in the future. We still do not know what they will appear in this second part, and we will have to wait until I decide to make Reeves.
