The Batman: new details on the Riddler's tragic origin story

The Batman

The Riddler, Edward Nashton's alter ego, will terrorize the streets of Gotham and give the Dark Knight a hard time in the new cinematic iteration. Thanks to the tie-in novel Batman: An Original Movie Novel, published by Random House, we can learn new details about the tragic origin story of the Riddler who will appear in The Batman.

Riddler's riddles

The tragic Riddler's “origin story”

The novel in question details Edward's formative years with a young Bruce Wayne. Bullied and mocked for his interests in the world of puzzles, Edward begins to harbor frustration and resentment towards Bruce and his wealth inherited from his parents.

It appears clear, therefore, how the version of the Riddler interpreted by Paul Dano looks very different from the one told in the comics. The actor himself stated that the director's intention was to bring to the screen a shrewd and cynical character who could pose a real threat to Batman.

His peculiarity was the absolutely random choice of victims and the letters he sent to the press and police after each murder.

Is ‘The Batman’ In The Same Universe As ‘Justice League’?

As Robert Pattinson gets ready to make his debut as the Dark Knight in The Batman, the average moviegoer might understandably be confused about what happened to Ben Affleck and if Pattinson is simply taking over his Bat-role in the shared Justice League universe. In short, nope.

While The Batman was initially greenlit to be a solo vehicle for Affleck’s Batman, who would also serve as writer and director, the situation shifted when Matt Reeves stepped in as director followed by Affleck abandoning the role altogether after a grueling experience filming Justice League. With Affleck gone, Reeves had an opportunity to start completely fresh, free from the baggage of the previous films. He took his pitch to Warner Bros. who approved the director creating a separate standalone universe with Pattinson in the cape and cowl for a brand new story.

“Warner Bros. has a multiverse where they’re exploring different ways to use the character … We don’t get involved in that,” The Batman producer Dylan Clark told Empire. “Matt is interested in pushing this character to his emotional depths and shaking him to his core.”

As Warner Bros. has demonstrated with Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker, the studio is willing to buck the Marvel movie trend of forcing every comic book film to be connected. Pattinson’s The Batman will exist in its own Bat-universe, which is already starting to expand. At least two spinoff series focusing on Penguin and the Gotham PD have been announced for HBO Max.

The Batman his theaters on March 4.
