Batman fans are on a roller coaster ride with reference to casting in the week, as names are accessorial and faraway from the listing of the Matt Reeves-directed the attendee.
Earlier in the week, fans were disappointed to learn that Jonah Hill was no longer being considered for an undisclosed role, only to learn today that There Will Be Blood and Prisoners star Paul Dano has been solid because of the Riddler.

Dano change of integrity the attendee, this week also saw the reveal that Zoe Kravitz would be playing Cat-woman alongside Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne and Jeffrey Wright’s Commissioner Gordon.
The Riddler last appeared in attender Forever, played by Jim Carrey, which saw the franchise drawing big names into the mix to bring iconic villains to life.
What’s clear regarding Reeves’ approach is that, rather than the cast being the big draws, it will be the performances that bring in audiences.
In general, Dano has built his character acting career oscillating between roles that play up his boyish looks and roles that use those same looks like a mask to hide some deep darkness.
Dano recently explored the life of a crime within the acclaimed get-go miniseries Escape at Dannemora, which may have been what sold him to Warner Bros. and Matt Reeves as an appropriate candidate for Riddler.
Dano definitely has the look you’d expect of Edward Nigma, and will certainly be able to sail between the villain’s eccentric neurosis and psychotic malice.
Thanks to his several powerful performances, Batman fans took to social media to express their excitement at Dano’s casting. Scroll all the way down to see what attender fans need to say.
