In this article, Quentin Tarantino discusses the process of making a Batman film from scratch.
In a follow-up interview, Tarantino tells us what he learned from working on the Batman trilogy.
Take your time and understand how it all came together.
In the film version of The Dark Knight, Batman was conceived in the summer of 1963.
That summer, he went to New York to attend the opening of the world’s first skyscraper.
He had a meeting with Commissioner Gordon in his Batmobile, which he parked in Central Park, to discuss the skyscraper’s potential future use.
At that meeting, the two discussed the idea of having Batman take on an identity.
Batman and Gordon would be the only superheroes in the city who would be able to control the flow of electricity and have access to a vast array of weaponry.
This was a great idea that appealed to Bruce Wayne, who had always been interested in the future.
It was clear that Bruce wanted to be the most powerful person in the world.
The commissioner’s office also wanted to give the appearance of an impartial arbiter, which would give the public a sense of trust in the government.
Bruce had an idea of who to use as Batman, so he had to come up with a name.
As a kid, I was fascinated by the way the word Batman came to me.
I thought, This is a real, practical name, which is why it’s the most common word in the English language.
When I was younger, I liked the name Bruce Wayne because it sounded like a real character, but it was also an opportunity to make something with a real sense of reality.
To me, the Batman name was the ultimate representation of the person.
So when I came up with the name, I just thought, It’s really easy to be a superhero.
There’s a very simple story behind it.
I’m Batman, a billionaire and the world is in peril.
A decade later, after a tragic event, Batman has to become a father and take on a new role as the protector of Gotham City.
There are so many things to love about this movie.
There are also so many elements that are in this movie that I couldn’t help but wonder if they were all designed in an effort to keep audiences guessing.
I’ve always thought that movies have a way of creating tension, because the suspense is there.
I wanted to make sure that the audience was aware of all of the things that are going on, even if it’s not all in the plot.
If you look at the storyboards, you’ll see that there’s a lot of dialogue.
You’re looking at this huge city and there are people that have died.
Every action that takes place in the film is very intentional, but the execution of the action is also very deliberate.
You get a sense that the movie is trying to tell a story that’s so real that people don’t want to believe that it’s a story.
After this movie, I wanted to try to take the same approach to other films that I’m working on, but this time, I had to take a different approach to the story.
I wanted the audience to be involved.
All of these elements have been written into the story, but they’re also hidden in the background.
They don’t have to be.
They don’t matter in a movie.
When you have an action-adventure movie, it’s about the action.
When we’re in Gotham City, we’re not fighting crime.
We’re just in the middle of a world that’s being torn apart.
Everything is on the line, and there’s no escape.
Even when the story isn’t in the script, it still has to be told.
So I’m always careful to make my characters look alive.
I try to show a little bit of everything, even the stuff that’s not in the story but still has a dramatic impact.
Tarantino was inspired by a couple of great films, including Pulp Fiction and Blade Runner.
He has a long and distinguished career as a filmmaker and actor, and his films have won multiple Oscars.
He was also one of the founding members of the Screen Actors Guild and the Writers Guild of America.
His filmography includes: Django Unchained, Pulp, The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, and The Shawshank Redemption.
