bat Man Accommodations will continue until morale improves! But seriously, jokes aside, there’s a lot to get excited about when it comes to Matt reeves The batman. It’s understandable that Reeves keeps the plot pretty close to the vest. With that in mind, we can still take some time and break down who’s who from Gotham City and what we hope to see from the cast when theaters open and we can finally see this baby.
Batman (Robert Pattinson)
It seems appropriate that we start with the man, the myth, the legend: Bruce Wayne. You know, the original genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist who put on a super suit. You’ve likely seen her mother’s pearls bounce off thirty different types of pavement, so we’re not going to spend a lot of time on their origin here. The parents suffered a tragic death, the boy blames himself and finally decides to become a symbol of his city. There is some training from some idiotic ninja there, but we are about to see their story unfold again, so let’s leave the rest to “surprise”.
Although many of us have seen our versions of Caped Crusader, I have high hopes that we will see something new from Reeve’s adaptation of The Bat. Robert Pattinson He has proven to be an exceptional actor time and time again, and I hope we see him tackle a more empathetic version of Batman than we have seen in recent on-screen renderings. He’s always been the type to break his kneecap when necessary, but there was a time when he understood that many of Gotham’s criminals were often sick and in need of help. Let’s get back to that Bat.
The Penguin (Colin Farrell)
Oswald Cobblepot has been a staple on the Gotham crime scene for decades. Iceberg Lounge vendor, notorious art thief, Crime Knight, and occasional political commentator – the character has truly been through it all. People had a few things to say about the idea of a hot penguin when Colin Farrell was cast in the role, but I’m infinitely more interested in what level of weirdness the actor can bring to this layered villain. He seems to enjoy adding a level of quirk to his characters, and I think The Penguin is a perfect fit for his next adventure. Expecting levels of diabolical smarm and the exact amount of criminal lore in the next movie.
Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz)
Selina Kyle has always been one of the trickiest members of the Bat family. Is she a villain? Is she a hero? Does she love Bruce? Do you want to kill Bruce? The answers to all these questions honestly change from day to day and from topic to topic if we are honest. He can be fickle when it suits him, and what could be more appropriate for a cat? The cat thief softens a bit as time goes on, but since we’re starting from the beginning, we’re likely to see a rather bitter Selina with a rapier for a tongue. Zoe Kravitz She has the precise level of cheekiness and wit that this character needs, and I really can’t wait to see her eat Bruce Wayne for breakfast.
Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis)
There are many levels to Alfred Pennyworth. What we see on the surface is a loyal servant and father figure to Bruce. A kind man who can put anyone offline in their place with a single polite but courteous comment. Beneath all that goodness and wisdom is a man who has seen some things (depending on the canon you are reading on any given day). As a former actor and soldier, he proves to be an invaluable member of the Bat family. Andy Serkis He’s always been able to play haunted like no other, which would be lovely to see balanced against The Bat’s kind and complicated father figure.
The Riddle (Paul Dano)
Even though you may know him as Edward Nygma, the Gotham Riddle started out as Edward Nashton. Ed has always been a smart, if complicated boy, and his descent into the Riddler persona has changed as often as any other character included here. Regardless of which option Reeves chooses, the character must remain deeply intelligent and obsessed with puzzles. It has been noted that we will get a bit more of a detective story, so hopefully we will get a chance to see Batman really challenged by one of his more conventionally intelligent nemesis. Although I admit that I have not seen much of Paul Of damage career, I’m interested in seeing what kind of balance it can bring to the puzzle-obsessed villain.
James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright)
Considering what we assume about the film’s timeline, it seems likely that we will see the well-known Commissioner Gordon early in his detective days. Gordon has always had a rocky relationship with Batman, and one of my biggest hopes for Reeves’s script is that we see him lay that foundation. A younger Gordon probably means a less tired one. He, starting with faith in the Caped Crusader and having that faith betrayed, reads like a complex narrative that I think could really add another layer to a story that has quite a few major evils.
Carmine Falcone (John Turturro)
I have to be honest here, I never would have linked it John Turturro as Gotham’s crime leader. That said, I love it more the more I think about it. Carmine Falcone is the type of man who believes in a code. He’s that kind of old school mobster. That code is what separates him from the rest of Batman’s rogues gallery. It is also what often makes it more dangerous. Unlike the rest of his villainous counterparts, Falcone is completely sane. Worse yet, you know how to navigate the system.
Though things will start early in the city’s history until bat Man he’s worried, we’ll probably start with Falcone who already has half of Gotham in his pocket. I can’t wait to see Turturro play with that.
Suffice it to say, while we’ve had a wealth of media revolving around Caped Crusader over the years, there’s still plenty to get excited about with the Matt Reeves movie. The cast alone is new and unexpected, and it seems likely that the story will follow suit. No matter how things turn out in the movie, it will at least be fun to see this cast manage to take on each other on the streets of Gotham.
