The role of Nashton, who as the Riddler commits crimes by compulsively dropping clues through riddles and puzzles, was reportedly among those eyed by actor Jonah Hill. Hill is said to have walked away from the film earlier this week after being offered an undisclosed role. Dano joins Pattinson’s titular Caped Crusader, succeeding “Justice League” veteran Ben Affleck in the namesake role. On Monday, Warner Bros. confirmed that Kravitz would join the forthcoming franchise installment as Catwoman’s alias, Selina Kyle.
