The cast for Matt Reeves‘ The Batman continues to grow, with it being recently reported that Andy Serkis is now in talks to play the role of Bruce Wayne’s loyal butler, Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell is in talks to play the Penguin. Now I can see Serkis as Alfred but Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot? – not really.
What with Paul Dano set to play the Riddler and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, it’s almost like the 1966 Batman movie all over again, though of course there’s no Joker and no doubt this one will be more serious. Robert Pattinson [I can’t see this either, to be frank] is playing Batman in the movie, which will also star Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon.
Reeves and Mattson Tomlin wrote the screenplay. The Batman hits cinemas on June 25, 2021.
