Paul Dano has been in talks to play the Riddler for the upcoming DC The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves.

The studio Warner Bros has not yet confirmed this news, even though it’s much likely that Paul Dano got the role to play The Riddler, a classic comic-book villain. Earlier today, Jonah Hill denied the role of the penguin, another role that has brought some attention to the actor.

The production hasn’t started yet for the movie, which is set to hit theaters June 25, 2021, but has scheduled it to start for late 2019 or early 2020. Paul Dano takes of the role of the Riddler after Jim Carrey’s incarnation in the most forgettable Batman-movie Batman Forever.

Dano has starred in Prisoners (2013) earlier before with Hugh Jackman in the lead. He has also done There Will Be Blood (2007). Escape at Dannemora (2018) is a limited series that he even got nominated for an Emmy. He has also done Wildlife with Jake Gyllenhaal.

Prior this week, Mackans Film also reported who got the role of Catwoman.
