Profile of the new Riddler
The director of the new Dark Knight film, Matt Reeves, explained that, unlike previous adaptations of the villain – which were interpreted as crazy people – The Riddler of The Batman should be more like a serial killer.
“The premise of the movie is that the Riddler acts in a way similar to the Zodiac [famous 1970s serial killer]. He is killing very prominent figures in Gotham, considered the pillars of society.
In the wake of the murders, he reveals the ways these people weren’t all they said they were, and you start to realize there’s some sort of connection. From there, Gordon and Batman follow the clues to try to understand, like a classic detective story,” he says.
In addition to Paul Dano, Robert Pattinson, Jeffrey Wright, Zoë Kravitz, Andy Serkis and Colin Farrell star in the film.
The Batman opens March 3 exclusively in theaters.
