Paul Dano to Play the Riddler in 'The Batman'

Dano will face off against Robert Pattinson's Batman in the highly-anticipated film. Dano's casting comes soon after Zoe Kravitz signed on to play Catwoman in the movie. Jeffrey Wright is also in talks to play Police Commissioner Jim Gordon. Riddler has been a foe of the caped crusader for decades, first debuting in 1948. The Riddler, AKA Edward Nygma, has been one of Batman's most memorable opponents. Jim Carrey also portrayed the cunning villain in 1995's 'Batman Forever.'. Dano's film credits include roles in '12 Years a Slave' and 'There Will Be Blood.'. 'The Batman' is being directed by 'War for the Planet of the Apes' filmmaker Matt Reeves. It is scheduled to reach the big screen on June 25, 2021.
