With production underway on The Batman, fans have been looking for any hints regarding the film, and actor Peter Sarsgaard recently dropped an interesting one.

While discussing the film at the Television Critics Association’s show for the upcoming CBS All Access series Interrogation (h/t CinemaBlend), Sarsgaard said that so far, The Batman feels like a different type of movie and went as far as comparing the production to a Pixies concert.

“Matt directing this Batman [is exciting],” he said. “The cast is so awesome. It seems different from other Batman movies to me, just with the cast. There’s something about it that has an edge, it’s young. To me, just my perception of it, it reminds me of when I was in college, and I went to go see The Pixies play, and looking around and feeling the vibe at a Pixies concert. That’s what it felt like to me, a song like ‘I Bleed.’ That it has the energy and that sort of thing, and isn’t so specifically targeted to a very young audience, or a very old audience, but has that power of chaos in it…”

He went on to say that The Batman is very emotional and that he thinks it will be very powerful.

“The Pixies were my favorite group of all time. I went to like 20 concerts, and it was that feeling of all of us in this. And it’s very emotional. The Pixies were incredibly emotional band, and I think this Batman is very emotional in that way. I think it will be very powerful.”

Matt Reeves is directing the film with a cast that includes Robert Pattinson as Batman, Colin Farrell as The Penguin, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon. Sarsgaard’s role remains unknown.

The film hits theaters in June of 2021.
