'The Batman' Casts Paul Dano As 'The Riddler'

Recommended Posts

Not even a day after it was announced that Jonah Hill turned down a role for 'The Batman.'  Matt Reeves has stepped up and announced with a tweet that Paul Dano will now play The Riddler in the new movie.

Reeves tweet includes the hashtag of #EdwardNashton and according to The Hollywood Reporter, Dano's version of the character will be named Edward Nashton, the man who in the comics later goes by the name Edward Nygma and adopts the villainous persona.

'The Batman' is being directed by Matt Reeves, who co-wrote the script with Mattson Tomlin and co-produced with Dylan Clark.  Starring in the title role is Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon.

Feature credits for Dano include Love and Mercy, Prisoners, 12 Years a Slave, There Will Be Blood, Youth and Okja.

Production begins in January in London with a theater release on June 25th, 2021.

Paul Dano is an excellent choice to play a deranged narcissist driven to dangerous ends by a compulsion to prove he's smarter than everyone else.

Probably the only good casting so far.
