New promo images for Matt Reeves’ The Batman have surfaced online, renewing debate around the costume donned by The Riddler (Paul Dano). As with before, fans still seem split on the redesign after the high-resolution images started to surface. Half are in support of the look, saying it helps set the tone for a dark movie. Other fans, however, are looking for a more comic-accurate look.
Whatever audiences think about the costume isn’t weighing heavily on Reeves, who’s already praised Dano’s take on the iconic Batman villain.
“You know we have a Paul Dano plays a version of the Riddler that no one has ever seen before and it’s really exciting,” Reeves said. “He’s such an incredibly creative actor and so what he is doing I think is going to blow people’s minds.”
“I guess the one thing about the Rogues Gallery is that it actually in a weird way, is the origins of a lot of our Rogue’s gallery characters,” Reeves continued. “So like, Selena isn’t Catwoman yet that’s actually part of the journey. oz is not yet the kingpin that he’s going to become he’s the penguin in fact doesn’t like being called the penguin, and the Riddler is just emerging for the first time, so that’s all incredibly exciting.”

I respect everyone’s views on how the Riddler looks but personally, this attire fits well with the film’s general dark and gothic theme.
I would imagine that someone who decided to spread a message and take action in their own way to find clothing just laying around the house. pic.twitter.com/R7CGB4Egbv

The Riddler looks perfect for what Matt Reeves is going for with #TheBatman. Eerie, ominous, and cryptic. I love that it’s also inspired by true crime serial killer the Zodiac. This will be an unforgettable comic book movie villain no doubt! pic.twitter.com/rVovPRWnSv

A whole lot of “It’s too soon to see Robin” “Catwoman should be Bruce’s only love interest” and “Riddler wouldn’t wear a green suit”
Y’all just being loud and wrong for what😭
