The Batman franchise is being rebooted once again, this time with Robert Pattinson donning the mantle and cowl of The Dark Knight. DC FanDome gave us another look at the very dark tone of the film along with its prime scoundrel, The Riddler, who’s played by Paul Dano. But this classic Batman rogue hasn’t always been in a dark-green dres covered in question marks. His history with the Caped Crusader gets as brutal and changed as any in Batman lore, so here’s why the R Pats Batman NEEDS The Riddler to kick off this reboot.

The Riddler has been toy garishly on screen by Frank Gorshin in the 60 s Tv sequences and movie, as well as Jim Carrey in the 1995 Batman Forever, but in the comics, dating the whole way back to early Detective Comics, Edward Nigma( aka Eddie Nash and Edward Nygma) developed a track record of fiendishly inventive intrigues and a constant is essential to the smartest party in a apartment full of very dangerous villains.
