'The Batman' Director Says His Bruce Wayne Was Inspired By Kurt Cobain

The latest version of Batman has a surprising inspiration - Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.

Matt Reeves, director of The Batman, says he imagined Bruce Wayne as a "recluse" and based the character on "the idea of this fictionalized version of Kurt Cobain" in a "decaying manor".

Reeves says he would listen to Nirvana's "Something In The Way" while writing the screenplay - the song even shows up in the movie's first trailer.

The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader and will be in theaters March 4th.
