The movie solely highlights the detective side of the Dark Knight. Most of the movie we have seen has focused on his agile and fighting skills. So this will be a fresh take on. In the upcoming movie, we are about to see a few different villains according to Matt Reeves.

New Joker?

Several rumors are going around that Pattinson’s trilogy is about to dedicate a new joker to the DC universe. According to a report from Daniel Richtman at The Direct, director Matt Reeves is planning to introduce a new Joker into his Batman trilogy. The plan, according to the report, is to tease the new Joker in 2021’s The Batman and add him outright in the second and third movies as one of the multiple villains. We have covered more details about it in a separate article, and you can read it here.

We cannot expect a significant role for Farrell to play in the film, though, as the actor himself indicated to GMA News that he doesn’t have “much to do” in the movie. Colin Farrell Penguin is going to have full-on prosthetics and apparently, he is unrecognizable on the role.

“I had only started it and I can’t wait to get back,” said Farrell. “The creation of it, the aesthetic of the character, has been fun and I really am so excited to get back and explore it. And I haven’t got that much to do. I have a certain amount in the film. I am not all over it by any means. But there are a couple of some tasty scenes I have in it and my creation and I can’t wait to get back.”

Joining Colin Farrell will be Paul Dano. He is the star of Little Miss SunshineThere Will Be Blood, and Escape at Dannemora. Dano will portray Edward Nashton, the brilliant villain known as The Riddler. We have his fanart also.

Matt Reeves Batman 2021 Story

Similar to Aquaman and Wonder Woman solo movies, The Batman is expected to focus on DC Comics’ famous Dark Knight. The story runs while outside the studio’s DC Extended Universe as per now. Reeves has described the story he’s developing as “noir-driven” with Batman “investigating a particular case that takes us out into the world of Gotham.”

“It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films,” Reeves told The Hollywood Reporter in January. “The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime.”

Current Rumors mostly confirm that the film would adapt the popular Batman: Year One story penned by Frank Miller. But the rumors were debunked by Reeves, who said he wouldn’t be telling an origin story for the character.

“I was like, look, there have been some great Batman films and I don’t want to just make a Batman film. I want to do something that has some emotional stakes. My ambition is for it to be incredibly personal using the metaphors of that world.”
