The upcoming 2022 The Batman film, which will controversially star Robert Pattison as Batman, the twinkly vampire from Twilight, and will no longer feature the iconic Joker. The highly anticipated film will also be the first time the Riddler will actually take his place in a movie Jim Carey in the 1990’s!
This should add a little difference to the Batman cinematic universe, which for a long while, has basically been overrun by various Joker’s. One man in particular, the same man behind several versions of The Riddler in multiple video games and animations, it happy that DC are taking a break from the Joker.
In a recent exclusive interview with Wally Wingert, the voice behind the Riddler, he stated that he was happy that we will finally get to see the Riddler on the big screen again. Wingert believes that the Riddler might even be a more interesting character than the Joker and fans could potentially have a new favourite Batman villain.
Furthermore, he stated that despite him playing the Riddler and working with many other Riddler over the years, he will not be judging or comparing the new Riddler to the old. This will be Paul Dano’s turn as the Riddler and Wingert is looking forward to seeing what kind of Riddler he will be.
