Christopher Nolan says ‘Batman’ is just someone who does a lot of push-ups.

“In that sense, he’s very relatable and human. I think that’s why I gravitated towards it.

“To me, each film is a different genre. They tend to be defined by the villain… We hadn’t planned on doing a sequel. So shifting genres and the nature of the antagonist felt the way to take the audience on a journey and tell them something different about Bruce Wayne,” he added.
