In addition to Sarsgaard, whose role is currently being kept under wraps, the cast recently saw John Turturro (The Big Lebowski) join the cast as Carmine Falcone as well as Andy Serkis (Black Panther) confirmed to the cast as Alfred Pennyworth, butler and father figure to the dark knight, after he had entered talks a couple of months ago to join the ensemble cast. It also saw newcomer Jayme Lawson join a star-studded cast that will be led by Robert Pattinson (Good Time, The Lighthouse) as the titular dark knight. The film will also be featuring Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon and Paul Dano as the Riddler, with Colin Farrell reportedly in talks to portray the roles of Penguin, respectively.

It’s unclear who Sarsgaard will portray at the moment, but it’s currently being speculated that he will either star as a corrupt cop or as infamous villain Harvey Dent, aka Two-Face.

Reeves’ story has been described as a character-driven project focusing on Batman’s experiences as the world’s greatest detective. The filmmaker has also said to expect a “Rogue’s Gallery” of villains in the movie.
