[Bruce Wayne is] A personality that Batman himself developed to throw people off his scent. Deep down, he’s not a fun guy. It’s not glamorous, it’s not sexy, or anything like that. He is dedicated to fighting crime 24/7. Hamish was the only person who succeeded in achieving exactly what we were after. As Tim also points out in the article, “We had a lot of people who were very good Batmans, but we had almost no good Bruces.”

As Linklater puts it, “Bruce Wayne is the mask. He’s the secret identity. He’s the invention. Batman is the real character, the actual man. It’s set in the 1940s, [so I just thought of] How Batman will try to play the role of a social playboy. I think I just tried to swing and swing and swing until I connected with something.

As for Harley Quinn, her job as a psychiatrist has led her to become a kind of vigilante in her own right. “We’ve discovered that, as a psychologist, her clients are some of the richest and most powerful men in Gotham City, and they’re throwing all their crap at her,” Tim said. “It’s driving her crazy. She hears all these things, but because of the psychiatrist-client privilege, she can’t do anything about it. She can’t tell anyone.
