The actor, who plays Gotham D.A. Gil Colson in the Matt Reeves-directed film, likens the tone on set to the alternative rock band Pixies.

Peter Sarsgaard is lifting the veil just a teeny, tiny bit on The Batman.

The actor participated in a interview Thursday with SiriusXM’s Jessica Shaw, and among the topics discussed was his role in the upcoming Warner Bros. film and the feeling on the set for the Matt Reeves-directed picture. 

Of course, Sarsgaard said very little about his character, Gotham District Attorney Gil Colson, but he enjoyed listening to fan theories — including those that speculate he's actually playing Harvey Dent.

He did discuss, however, the tone of the film and the feeling he gets while on set, which he compared to the alternative rock band Pixies. 

"It's so raw in that way," he said in his comparison to the band's music style. "So, that's what I feel like about this. It is not sanitized. It's got a raw power to it, a raw emotionality." 

The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, is set to arrive in theaters June 25, 2021.
