New names enter ring for Penguin, Riddler and Two-Face roles in The Batman

August 20th, 2019 by Marc Comments

So, it seems we have more casting rumours for Matt Reeves’ The Batman.

At the weekend I reported that ex-007 Pierce Brosnan may be in line for the role of Alfred Pennyworth and there’s been rumours for a while that Hobbs & Shaw’s breakout star Vanessa Kirby may be up ofr Catwoman/Selina Kyle and now we have more villainour rumours.

We’ve known for a while that the movie would have a roster of baddies including Penguin, Catwoman, Two-Face, Mad Hatter and others and it looks like I, Tonya and BlacKkKlansman star Paul Walter Hauser may be in line for the role of Oswald Copplepot/Penguin.

Staying with BlacKkKlansman, Denel Washington’s son, John David Washington, is apparently up for DA Harvey Dent/Two-Face… following, no doubt, in the shoes of Billy Dee Williams in Batman ‘89.

After that there’s rumour of Jamie Foxx as Riddler, which I think is doubtful… but at this stage, who knows?

One thing is for sure, with the movie set to begin filming early next year, there’ll be more concreate news of casting soon… and if any of these names are right, Reeves is going for big names for evenn bigger characters.

Thoughts? I wanna hear them…

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….
