PAUL DANO AS RIDDLER IN 'THE BATMAN'
I knew that I wanted to do a story that would lean into the detective side of Batman, because we hadn’t seen it in the films.
Selina Kyle was the next character Reeves knew he wanted to use, and he then thought of a scenario that “takes us to the Iceberg Lounge.
THE BATMAN’S BACKSTORY
It’s funny, because everyone wanted to avoid an origin story, but it’s a new version of the character and you’re so aware of his origins that you end up trying to sort of play it in the subtext and little moments.
The character is so well developed in the script and I was really excited to explore her backstory and where she comes from and the process that she goes through in terms of becoming closer to what will be Catwoman.
Batman’s world in the comics includes some wild, fantastical elements, with villains like Clayface, Poison Ivy, and Man-Bat who have outright superpowers and often don’t even appear human.
