IGN published this video item, entitled “How The Batman Was Inspired by The Zodiac Killer – IGN The Fix: Entertainment” – below is their description.
On Today’s IGN The Fix: Entertainment,
The Batman takes inspiration from the infamous real-life Zodiac Killer, with director Matt Reeves describing the detective story as ‘almost a horror.’ Speaking with Movie Maker on #TheBatman, Reeves talks about what led to The Riddler’s current depiction by saying, “The premise of the movie is that the Riddler is kind of molded in an almost Zodiac Killer sort of mode, and is killing very prominent figures in Gotham, and they are the pillars of society. These are supposedly legitimate figures. It begins with the mayor, and then it escalates from there.” The letters the Zodiac Killer sent contained clues that could presumably lead to the Zodiac Killer’s identity, but unfortunately we’re still in the dark to this day. This, along with the Zodiac Killer’s crosshair-like symbol he’d use to sign his letters are some of the parallels director Matt Reeves drew upon when conceiving his version of The Riddler seen in The Batman. Zodiac Killer comparisons are soon to be drawn when we see The Riddler in The Batman in theaters.
In other Batman news, according to The Hollywood Reporter, The Batman will clock in at 2 hours and 55 minutes, making it the longest Batman film and superhero flick to date.
And finally, Marvel Comics will soon have two Captain Americas, with Sam Wilson wielding the shield alongside Steve Rogers in two different, monthly Captain America titles. Sam will be donning the stripes in Captain America: Symbol of Truth, while Steve will star in Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty.
