the batman Director Matt Reeves is teasing the presence of his iconic portrayal of the supervillain Riddler at San Diego Comic-Con.
“Just a small taste of things to come in Jim Lee and Friends,” Reeves wrote in a Twitter post while sharing an image of the Riddler, played by Paul Dano in the film.
The panel in question to reveal some sort of Riddler-related information will take place later Friday at 1:45 p.m. PT, Reeves said.
Jim Lee, who is on the panel, is the creative director of DC Comics and is involved not only with the company’s comics, but also works behind the scenes on the development side of the movies. In fact, Lee recently confirmed at an SDCC panel held yesterday that DC’s Snyderverse is essentially gone forever.
But don’t worry comic book movie fans, Reeves’ Batverse is still going strong. He is in the works on a spin-off of a TV show starring Colin Farrell’s Penguin, based on the box office hit. the batman which was released in March, and Warner Bros. has already announced a sequel with Reeves and Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne.
As for what the Riddler announcement at SDCC might be, we’d hazard a guess that it will focus on more details of a Dano-penned prequel comic about Edward Nashton, as previously announced in March.
Even though we must hold a moment of silence for the death of the Snyderverse (pause), we’re still excited for what lies ahead for Reeves’ noir vision of Gotham as the batman It absolutely blew our socks off.
