Rumors of his casting have circulated for over a month, but now filmmaker Matt Reeves has finally confirmed that “Westworld” actor Jeffrey Wright will be playing Commissioner James Gordon in the upcoming “The Batman” for Warner Bros. Pictures.
He joins a cast that includes Robert Pattinson as Batman, Paul Dano as The Riddler and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman. An actor is still being sought for the role of The Penguin.
Wright’s confirmation is no surprise as it’s been talked about so much that it feels like it was confirmed. Reeves and Mattson Tomlin have co-written the film which will shoot early next year for a June 25th 2021 release.
