John Turturro to play crime boss Carmine Falcone in The Batman

November 25th, 2019 by Marc Comments

So, this is confirmation we’re getting a Long Halloween movie trilogy right? Right? Hello…

It looks like Matt Reeves, director and writer of the upcoming The Batman movie(s) has cast another top notch actor in a pivotal role as The Big Lebowski and, em, Transformers star John Turturro has signed on to play crime boss Carmine Falcone.

Falcone is one of Batman’s first big cases when he puts on the cape and play a pivotal role in the epic The Long Halloween story which this movie is rumoured based on.

Turturro joins Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle, Paul Dano as Edward Nash/Riddler, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth.

That’s quite the cast, all things considered.

The Batman is scheduled to hit cinemas on June 25th, 2021.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
