Robert Pattinson ensures that his version of the Dark Knight keeps up the One Rule, the caped crusader cannot break – No-Kill Rule.
Director Matt Reeves’ The Batman star, Robert Pattinson reveals that in his adaptation the batman follows the No Kill rule, which is the core moral of the Dark Knight many of its variants persevere.
There is this rule with Batman: he must not kill. It can be interpreted in two ways. Either he only wants to inflict the appropriate punishment, or he wants to kill and his self-control prevents him from doing so.
Although he confirmed that his version follows the mostly persevered code, his version does find pleasure in inflicting pain in rivals, and fear in the Gotham Citizens which differs his Batman from the others. This gives more visibility to the struggles of Batman, to hold back, and persevering the No Kill Rule.
Even though most Batman versions follow the No Kill Code, there are several versions that crossed the line. Iain Glen’s Batman featured in Titans, crosses the line by killing the Clown Prince of Crime when he, the Joker kills Jason Todd. Another adaptation of Batman by Kevin Conroy in Arrow verse’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover features an older Bruce Wayne who failed to keep his code, ends up killing of his nemeses and collecting trophies.
But the most criticized adaptation of the lost Dark Knight is Zack Snyder’s Batman played by Ben Affleck. In which the hero lost his path after losing his loved ones, and lives in a beautiful lie.
Though Pattinson’s Batman, who is in the early stages of his crusade, is promised to keep up his Code, we will know what the price he pays to keep it on March 4.
