Carmine Falcone has previously been brought to life by Tom Wilkinson and John Doman. Also known as “The Roman,” Carmine Falcone was created by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli for Batman: Year One. The character is a powerful Gotham mob boss who’s often depicted as an enemy of the Dark Knight in the pages of DC Comics.
Plot details for The Batman are being kept under wraps. Previous rumors once pointed to an earlier version of the script featuring Ben Affleck bookending the movie as his current Batman while it introduced a younger version of the iconic character, played by Robert Pattinson. But with Ben Affleck retired from the role, Robert Pattinson has officially replaced the Batman v Superman and Justice League star as Batman.
While details are slim, Matt Reeves has confirmed that his movie is not based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic and will emphasize the hero as the world’s greatest detective more than previous films have in the past. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new Batman trilogy starring Robert Pattinson.
