Matt Reeves' The Batman star cast is expanding with each passing day. After Robert Pattinson was roped in to play the cape crusader, there were stories about Zoe Kravitz playing the Catwoman in this next superhero outing. However, the newest name joining these actors in Reeves' directorial is Okja actor Paul Dano. The actor is on board to star as one of the many villains, Riddler in Pattinson's next. Though no official confirmation about the same is out yet, sources close to the project have informed The Wrap about this new development.

Reeves' take on DC's very famous superhero would be more  “defining” and “very personal” story about the Dark Knight, rather than an origin story. He was roped in after Ben Affleck decided to quit the role. Pattinson was his personal choice as he felt the British born actor would look perfect in this much-acclaimed role. Dano is currently gearing up for The Power of the Dog as the shooting of The Batman will begin only in January in the UK next year. The Batman: Jeffrey Wright to Play Commissioner Gordon in Robert Pattinson Starrer.

Recently there were reports about Jonah Hill being in talks to star as either Riddler or Penguin in this Batman saga. However, things didn't materialise between him and the studio as his pay package was apparently too much. Nonetheless, we are damn excited about this development, what about you?
