OK, so Matt Reeves’ The Batman cast is quickly becoming the best cast ever assembled in a comic book movie, and they’ve just added John Turturro as Carmine Falcone.
This news was announced via Matt Reeves’ Twitter page, who tweeted out a gif of Jon Turturro in The Big Lebowski in which his character says: “You said it, man,” and he accompanied the tweet this an amusing little caption.
He started off the caption with a bat emoji and then wrote: “I said… #CarmineFalcone”
You can have a look at the tweet below in all its glory.

John Turturro has been around for quite a while now and has become one of the most highly rated actors in Hollywood.
He’s been in a series of movies, both blockbusters and indie films, and he’s never disappointed.
Turturro is a truly magnificent actor who’s proven how talented he is even in films like the Transformers movies.

Carmine Falcone is a really interesting character for him to play because he’s not quite like the people who’ve played the mob boss in the past.
We’ve seen the likes of John Doman and Tom Wilkinson play the DC Comics villain in the past, and they’re both quite imposing figures.
Turturro is imposing in a slightly different sense. He’s quite a bit taller and leaner than previous actors who’ve played the role, and I think they might make his version of the mob boss more than just your average thug.
I think he’s going to be a lot smarter and more formidable than previous versions of Falcone we’ve seen on the big and small screens.
Honestly, this cast for The Batman is getting ridiculously good. First off, you have Robert Pattinson as Batman, then Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, Paul Dano as The Riddler and Andy Serkis as Alfred.
It’s arguably the best cast ever assembled for a Batman movie.
