There are rumours online that are suggesting that The Batman’s real villain is actually going to be Barry Keoghan’s character, Stanley Merkel. This rumour comes courtesy of Daniel Richtman, who’s also claiming that The Riddler will be proven to be a good guy towards the end of the movie.
There’s been so much written about The Batman movie, which will star Robert Pattinson as the DC Comics superhero. He’ll be playing Bruce Wayne and it was also revealed that Paul Dano would be playing The Riddler.
Naturally, people have assumed that The Riddler would be the film’s main villain. However, it sounds like this might not be the case. This is if insider Daniel Richtman is to be believed.
The Batman’s real villain could end up being Barry Keoghan
Here’s what Daniel Richtman wrote about the upcoming The Batman and who its main villain might end up being, and it might come as a bit of a shock:
I hear the Riddler will turn out to be a good guy in the end and Barry Keoghan’s character is the real villain.
It was revealed a while back that Barry Keoghan will be playing Stanley Merkel in the upcoming movie. Merkel in the comics is a former partner of Jim Gordon. However, that backstory could have been changed by Matt Reeves.
