Watch DC’s ‘The Riddler: Year One’ trailer featuring Paul Dano and Matt Reeves

Watch as Paul Dano and Matt Reeves discuss new comics series ‘The Riddler: Year One.’

It’s Riddler: Year One day, as Paul Dano and Stevan Subic’s Riddler: Year One #1 launches into comic shops. It’s an exciting series not only because it’s well crafted–read our review to see why–but it adds context and backstory for Riddler for fans of The Batman. It’s also a way to see how an actor like Paul Dano does backstory to get into character as he played the Riddler like no one before.

In the trailer below, watch as Paul Dano and The Batman director Matt Reeves discusses how the project got going and more.

So what’s The Riddler: Year One about?

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 Glénat 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.
