“Recently, I got to make this film Batman v Superman, and in the process, I had to design a Batman character. I had to do a suit, I don’t know if you know anything about the process, but what you do is over months of meticulous designing and editing, you come to an aesthetic you believe will be the Batman you want to see. Along with my costume designer Michael Wilkinson, we did just that and we came to the point where we were going to test the suit on Ben. So, we had built a set of an alley, graffiti, barrels with fire, steamy stuff, and it was this very kind of noirish setting to film our Batman for the first time. Ben put the suit on and we put him in front of the camera and I was just having him turn and look around looking Batmanish, and it was amazing because I felt in that moment that I had achieved this goal that I had set out for myself. When I looked at Ben, he was the perfect personification of the Batman I had in my mind. The truth is, he wasn’t really the Batman I had imagined. Bob really had put him there in my mind, you know through years of TV shows, comic books, movies. I realized that we all, every single one of us, has a Batman, an imaginary Batman, in our minds, right? Lurking in the shadows and that’s just real and that’s just in a lot ways that’s Bob’s legacy. That’s what Bob 75 years of Batman he given this gift to all of us. You know it endured us, because Batman, unlike Superman or Wonder Woman or Flash, is a guy without powers, he’s a man, he’s all of us and I think that’s it. We all carry around a hero inside themselves, everyday and it’s that guy, it’s Batman. I thank Bob for that personally. We all own him a debt of gratitude, because in that hero we carry around, we realize that the hero is us, just a man. In truth we are all Batman, thank you guys, thank you Bob!”
