Comic - The Riddler: Year One

How did Edward Nashton turn into the Riddler? Actor and writer Paul Dano and The Batman director Matt Reeves discuss THE RIDDLER: YEAR ONE, the comic book prequel to the hit film, out now from DC Comics ...

Press Release

Paul Dano’s performance as The Riddler in Matt Reeves’ The Batman turned comic book and movie fans’ perception of The Riddler completely upside down, portraying a haunting and intense character that was every bit the match for Batman in terms of will power, intelligence and sheer drive.

Actor and writer Paul Dano understands the Riddler’s every motivation… As depicted in Matt Reeves’s hit movie The Batman, the Riddler wasn’t simply an amusing eccentric with an affinity for wordplay and baffling clues, but as terrifying a villain as any in the annals of the Dark Knight. Here you can see Edward Nashton evolve into the menace known as the Riddler. How did an unknown forensic accountant uncover the dark secrets of Gotham’s underworld and come so close to bringing down the entire city? This six-issue miniseries is an immediate prequel to The Batman - the detailed, disturbing, and at times shocking story of a man with nothing to lose. Artist Stevan Subic makes his American comics debut, collaborating with Dano to deliver a shadowy and gritty tale of a society’s forgotten man who refuses to go unnoticed any longer. Subic’s recent Conan the Cimmerian for French publisher GlĂ©nat has brought him great acclaim in Europe, and he’s about to break out globally with a Batman series unlike any you’ve seen before.

Just in time for the launch of the six issue limited series, DC has released a DC Comic Trailer previewing the series, with commentary from Dano and Reeves about the origins of the series spinning out of the film, how Dano prepared to expand the background and history behind Edward Nashton, and his hand selection of Serbian artist Stevan Subic for the series.
