Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies had a lot of fans and a sizable number of critics. I consider myself a pretty big fan of it. One question that always bothered me about it, though…
Why did he use the “Batman voice” around people who already knew he was Bruce Wayne?
I’m thinking mainly of Lucius Fox here, but he did it to Catwoman too.
Was he like a method actor, trying to stay in character in case anyone who didn’t know he was Bruce snuck up on them? “Hey Lucius, what’s up man? You trying to come watch TV at Wayne Manor later…oh wait, is that Gordon? Uhh…HEY MR. FOX I’M BATMAN, DOING BATMAN STUFF, NOT RICH GUY STUFF…OH HEY COMMISSIONER. FANCY SEEING YOU HERE.”
If not…you can probably just use your normal Bruce voice. Otherwise he just seems like an idiot kid playing dress up. “LUCIUS, I’LL LOOK AT THOSE GADGETS YOU MADE ME…JUST AS SOON AS I’M DONE BUILDING THIS FORT. CAREFUL WHERE YOU STEP, PARTS OF THE BATCAVE FLOOR ARE LAVA.”
