      Paul Dano is the better choice.

        Paul Dano is a great choice. I'm so pumped that The Riddler is going to be the main villain.

          It's looking more like Teen Titans than Batman.

            Can someone actually explain why Jonah Hill can’t play the Riddler?

                For me its a toss-up between Michael Keaton and Christian Bale.

                Thanks goodness that Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill are not in the movie. I don't think either one is even remotely a good actor. With the young star power of Pattinson, Dano and Kravitz are a great start, I think it's looking up for the future of the movie.

                    Well Reeves revealed riddler is the main villain anyways in the Batman so they found there actor in Dano, just need to cast a good enough actor as a co villain in penguin, and Alfred casting also TBD

                      Andy Serkis will be Alfred. (He was Gollum in Lord of the Rings and Caesar in Planet of the Apes)

                    Jonah Hill would have been great for the Penguin, not for The Riddler. Paul Dano as the Riddler is a great choice.

                      Let's just hope Josh Had becomes Penguin and other castings for Bane,Two-Face and Hugo Strange (that hasn't been in any Batman films so far) and other Batman villains that haven't been used in films

                        @Osiris Rex Yeahh same I agree if u've played Batman Telltale Games u'd know Colin Farrell would most likely play that kind of character

                      • Osiris Rex
                        Osiris Rex  2 months back

                        @Kenroy Kentish -- I think he will be more like Gotham's Penguin than Batman Return's Penguin. If he is 1/10 as good as Robin Lord Taylor as Penguin I will be happy. Danny DeVito's Penguin was a little too gross for me.

                        Colin Farrell looks like he will be Penguin.

                      Grace doesn’t give Paul Dano enough credit I didn’t really care for this movie but no that he’s been casted on as the riddler I’m very interested

                        Robin Lord Taylor as the Penguin yet again, but they prob wont use him. It'd be great if they reused some of Gothams cast for this film though

                            It’s obviously about the budgets

                                    Colin Farrell will probably be Penguin.

                                  It's kinda funny that they were able to cast another great Joker since Heath Ledger and DC can't use him as leverage to get Big Hollywood stars for a Batman movie.

                                      Paul Dano is the better choice. He’s the better actor.

                                        I loved War for the planet of the Apes. I didn’t know people had an issue with it. Loved the internment camp stuff. That whole movie was amazing.

                                          Who's Paul Dano? I know there are people are excited about another batman reboot. I'm just not one of them.

                                              Jonah hill and Seth rogen is a NOOOOO to a Batman movie. Dano is pretty good actor and i can see the riddler in him. I would love to see Andy serkis or paul walter hauser as pinguin.

                                                I'd love to see Michael Stuhlbarg as the Penguin- he was wasted in Doctor Strange. Paul Dano is an amazing actor, loved his performance in There will be blood, so talented

                                                  Gawd.. Grace has such bad taste when it comes to casting: Paul Dano is perfect casting as The Riddler. I can’t think of a better actor. Jonah Hill is too goofy looking for the role. Paul Dano has better acting roles than Hill and he’s a better actor. Can’t wait to see him play Edward Nashton aka Edward Nigma aka.The Riddler.
