Reeves goes on to explain why he was obsessed with the character even goes go to say that the character is really powerful.
“It’s a strange thing to be involved in the two franchises which were the two that I was connected to most as a child,” Reeves says. “I just was obsessed with Batman when I was a kid. What I find so interesting about him as a character is that, as far a superhero goes, he’s not superhuman, he is a person. And he is a tortured soul who is grappling with his past and trying to find a way to be in a world that has a lot that’s wrong with it and trying to find a way to reconcile all of that.
“That is a really powerful character, in the same way that Caesar is such a powerful character.”
