John Turturro to Play Carmine Falcone in Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
John Turturro will star as Carmine Falcone in Matt Reeves’ “The Batman,” the director announced on Twitter on Friday.

Carmine Falcone first appeared in “Batman Begins” played by English actor Tom Wilkinson. The character made its debut in the comic books in the four-part story “Batman: Year One,” written by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli in 1987. In the comics, Carmine Falcone is a powerful mafia boss nicknamed “The Roman.”

Robert Pattinson is set to star as the Dark Knight. Reeves took over the directing gig after Ben Affleck stepped away from the role. Affleck was also expected to play Batman again but then said he would be hanging up the cape for good. Reeves has since described the film as a “defining” and “very personal” story about the Dark Knight, rather than an origin story in the vein of Frank Miller’s beloved “Year One” series.
