The film will also be featuring Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon and Paul Dano as the Riddler, respectively. In addition to Peter Sarsgaard, whose role is currently being kept under wraps, the cast recently saw John Turturro (The Big Lebowski) join as Carmine Falcone as well as Andy Serkis (Black Panther) as Alfred Pennyworth, butler and father figure to the dark knight, as well as newcomer Jayme Lawson.
