Streaming traffic skyrocketed 1200%.
Director Matt Reeves also confirmed in a previous interview that Robert Pattinson’s Batman/Bruce Wayne was inspired by Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.
“Bruce Wayne, who is lonely and vengeful, is like a drug addict, his addiction is his drive for revenge, he’s like Batman Kurt Cobain.”
It then occurred to me that instead of Bruce Wayne being the Playboy version I’ve seen before, there’s another version of him being a recluse after a great tragedy. So I started associating that with Gus Van Sant’s Last Days and the fictionalized version of Kurt Cobain connect with the idea of this decadent estate.”Matt Reeves
