Robert Pattinson plays Batman/Bruce Wayne
Robert Pattinson’s portrayal of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Matt Reeves’ film revolutionized the way audiences viewed the iconic superhero. He brings a new depth and intensity to the character, as Bruce Wayne is only two years into his crime-fighting career and is portrayed as being almost addicted to his mission. Pattinson has had a long and varied career, having gained worldwide recognition for his performances in Twilight, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and other major blockbusters.
He has also been featured in acclaimed independent films such as Cosmopolis, The Lost City of Z, Good Time, High Life, and The Lighthouse. Most recently, he starred in Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. This wide range of film experiences makes Robert Pattinson an ideal actor to portray Batman as we have never seen him before – a vigilante driven by passion and obsession with his mission to protect Gotham City from crime and corruption.
Zoë Kravitz plays Catwoman/Selina Kyle
Zoë Kravitz delivers an incredible performance in this film as Selina, a character that fans of the comics will recognize before she fully becomes the Catwoman they know and love. She’s a waitress at a nightclub who also does drugs and steals cats to support her habit as she searches for her missing roommate, and her interactions with Batman complicate his binary understanding of good and evil.
Kravitz has starred in several notable films, including the X-Men, The Divergent Series, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Fantastic Beasts. She is best known for her roles in the critically acclaimed television shows Big Little Lies on HBO and High Fidelity on Hulu. Steven Soderbergh’s KIMI and the films Gemini and Rough Night also include her. She is a brilliant performer whose work you should not overlook.
Paul Dano plays The Riddler/Edward Nashton
The Riddler, an iconic Batman villain, has become a notorious serial killer in this version. Striking the most influential citizens of Gotham, he live-streams his acts of terror to the world with the intention of “unmask the truth” about the city.
His signature mark is leaving riddles at crime scenes as a way to taunt Batman himself. Paul Dano’s been globally recognized for his roles in awesome films like Little Miss Sunshine and There Will Be Blood – he even got a BAFTA nomination for the latter! His other impressive credits include Looper, 12 Years a Slave, Prisoners, Love & Mercy, and Okja. In 2018, he made his directorial debut with Wildfire.
Jeffrey Wright plays Lieutenant James “Jim” Gordon
As an experienced actor with a number of prominent roles in films and television, including Felix Leiter in the Daniel Craig-era James Bond films, Beetee Latier in The Hunger Games, Valentin Narcisse in Boardwalk Empire, and Bernard Lowe in Westworld—plus recent credits including The Laundromat, The Goldfinch and The French Dispatch—Jeffrey Wright is perfectly cast as James Gordon, the Gotham City Police Department lieutenant who we know from the comics later becomes commissioner. With his commitment to rooting out corruption in the city, Gordon is Batman’s main ally against crime and injustice.

John Turturro plays Carmine Falcone
The notorious Gotham City crime lord, Falcone, is a reclusive figure, almost as elusive as Bruce Wayne himself. His presence looms large over the city yet he rarely appears in public.

He has also starred in the hit miniseries The Night Of and The Plot Against America, as well as in films such as Quiz Show and the Transformers series.
Andy Serkis plays Alfred Pennyworth
Andy Serkis is set to bring his remarkable motion-capture talents to the role of Bruce Wayne’s butler and mentor in the upcoming Batman movie. Despite their strained relationship, Bruce remains loyal to Alfred and continually seeks his counsel. Worried about Bruce’s dangerous obsession with becoming The Dark Knight, Alfred will be an invaluable source of guidance and comfort. Serkis is acclaimed for his revolutionary motion capture work in films like The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Star Wars sequel trilogy, and Planet of the Apes reboot series. He has also starred in Ulysses Klaue in the MCU, Long Shot, and SAS: Red Notice. Additionally, he has directed Breathe and Venom: Let There Be Carnage – further cementing his reputation as a masterful actor and auteur.
Peter Sarsgaard plays Gil Colson
Colson, Gotham’s District Attorney, appears to be failing in his responsibility to eradicate corruption from the city. He has allowed crime bosses to go unpunished and taken advantage of his position for personal gain. This must be rectified if Gotham is to remain a safe place for its citizens. Sarsgaard is an acclaimed actor with a number of high-profile performances under his belt, including The Man in the Iron Mask, Shattered Glass, Jarhead, An Education, and The Magnificent Seven.
Most recently he starred in The Guilty, The Survivor, and The Lost Daughter as well as having a recurring role in the Hulu series Dopesick. His talent and skill make him the perfect choice to take on the role of District Attorney and restore justice to Gotham City.
