The Beat had the pleasure of chatting with the dynamic Jayme Lawson of the buzzed-about film, The Batman

In this standalone story by Matt Reeves, Bruce Wayne B.K.A. The Batman (Robert Pattinson) and James Gordon are a detective duo trying to solve The Riddler’s (Paul Dano) heinous murders in dramatic puzzle form. While the duo is navigating a seesaw of secrets and trust, it’s Bella Reál (Jayme Lawson), who is seemingly the only honorable politician in a morally corrupt Gotham, who is holding everyone, including Bruce Wayne accountable. 

In our interview, watch Jayme Lawson talk about the real-life inspiration for her onscreen portrayal, spearheading justice in a city that seems unable to be saved, collaborating with Matt Reeves on this brand new DC character, and so much more! 

The Batman is currently in theaters and will be streaming on HBO Max in April!
