Paul Dano The Batman
In the American superhero movie The Batman from 2022, she played Edward Nashton/The Riddler. A forensic accountant who becomes a serial killer by taking Batman as his inspiration targets and broadcasts his murders against wealthy Gotham residents. He uses riddles to mock Batman and the police as he strives to “unmask the truth” about Gotham.
Reeves claims that the Riddler was inspired by the comic book premise that Batman makes his own adversaries, and that the character’s attack on Gotham gives him a “political goal” as a terrorist-like figure. Because they share similar objectives, he found it unnerving that Batman and the Riddler are “kind of two sides of the same coin.” Due to his use of ciphers and riddles, he claimed that the Zodiac Killer was the “real-life” Riddler. Dano claimed that his portrayal of the Riddler combined the theatricality of the Batman franchise with its real-life basis. Joseph Walker portrays Nashton when he was a youngster.
