Actor Paul Dano has described filmmaker Matt Reeves’ script for “The Batman” as “potentially really powerful” and said he was surprised by it. The Prisoners star will be essaying the role of iconic comic villain The Riddler in the movie, fronted by Robert Pattinson. In an interview with The Playlist, Dano said he is eager to resume shooting for the film after it was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic. “I was filming. I flew home to visit my baby and then didn’t get to fly back, which is a really strange thing. But I feel really good about it. I think Matt Reeves is the real deal. I was really surprised by his script, which I think is, is potentially really powerful. Hopefully, we’ll get back to it sometime soon? I’m not sure.” Besides Pattinson as Batman and Dano as The Riddler, the much-anticipated movie will feature a host of classic DC Comics characters, which includes Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as The Penguin, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth.
