DC’s The Batman has been surrounded by doubts for long but it seems like the pieces are now finally beginning to fall into place for them as one A-lister just might be a part of the film.
This new report comes via The Geeks Worldwide revealing that Oscar Isaac has reportedly met Warner Bros. for an “undisclosed role” in The Batman. While we don’t have any confirmation of the offer being made, there are rumours that Isaac is “very much interested” in the project.
The news of Isaac entering the DC universe will surely make fans happy as he comes along with a really interesting filmography. Best known for his role of Poe Dameron in Star Wars sequel trilogy, Isaac has also starred in critically acclaimed films like Ex Machina, Annihilation and Inside Llewyn Davis. Keeping in mind that Star Wars: Episode IX is already in its production, it will make sense that Isaac will be available for Batman, that will begin its production next year.
Obviously, all we can do for now is guess as to what role would Isaac possibly play as the film is expected to be a take on Batman’s younger version, fighting crime in Gotham city in his early years. Reports have even revealed that the film will have The Penguin as the main villain in the film along with a few other villains in the roster, which means that Isaac does get to choose between a wide array of roles ranging from Harvey Dent to Hugo Strange.
“I’ve talked about making it a very point of view noir-driven definitive Batman story in which he is investigating a particular case and that takes us out into the world of Gotham,” writer-director Matt Reeves said in a recent interview. “I went on a deep dive again revisiting all my favourite comics. Those all inform by osmosis. There’s no continuation of the [Christopher] Nolan films. It’s very much trying to find a way to do this as something that for me is going to be definitively Batman and new and cool.”
