A new video from The Batman set in the U.K reveals the first look at John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, a notorious crime boss in Gotham City.

While fans recently got a fresh look at Robert Pattinson on The Batman set during a funeral scene, a new video reveals The Big Lebowski star John Turturro as Carmine Falcone in the Warner Bros. movie. The mobster made his debut in Batman: Year One by Frank Miller and David Mazzuchelli before later appearing in The Long Halloween from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale. Since Matt Reeves’ The Batman will seemingly take some cues from the classic book by Loeb and Sale, it isn’t surprising that Carmine Falcone has a role to play in the new film.

The new video revealing John Turturro as Carmine Falcone outside of St Georges’s Hall in Liverpool surfaced on Twitter as production continues on The Batman. The footage showed the star with gray hair and dressed in a black suit while wearing sunglasses. Although the video didn’t reveal much, it saw Turturro descending down the steps of the hall talking to a woman on his right side. Since the film seems to take aim at corruption in Gotham City, it’ll be interesting to see whether Falcone had anything to do with the death of the person whose funeral he’s attending. Although it seems likely that the victim could be the person Paul Dano’s Riddler was taping up in that stunning first trailer. Take a look at John Turturro on Matt Reeves’ The Batman set below.

What do you make of the first look at John Turturro as Carmine Falcone in The Batman? Will he be the one behind the funeral victim’s death instead of the Riddler? Sound-off in the comments below!

Plot details for The Batman are being kept under wraps, but we know that the project will revolve around Robert Pattinson as a younger Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector. The Batman will also feature the hero making use of his detective skills more than what we’ve seen before in previous iterations of the character. It is also expected to be the first installment to a new Batman trilogy with Pattinson.

Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, the film stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.

The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on October 1, 2021. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news regarding John Turturro and the Batman universe, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content.
