Anyone have ideas for Sofia Falcone’s casting? I’m always stuck on that one.
granted I'm not exactly suggesting this woman can act or should play character. But visually the wrestler Nia Jax has always reminded me Sofia Falcone because I always imagined she was huge.
Again, I'm not suggesting she be hired for the role, I'm not one to go casting any wrestlers in CBMs unless they truly deserve it.
She is, but I understand the point. I see the resemblance.
I’m personally a fan of the idea of making Sofia the bully big sister to Selina and emphasizing that - whether they go full Long Halloween and cast and intimidating woman as Sofia or go full Gotham and get a model-esque actress.
Personally, I’d like a looming actress opposite Kravitz; given her height, that wouldn’t be too much of a struggle.
I'm really not buying just yet into the theory that she'll be his daughter in this version lol.
And I really doubt we'll see the rest of the Falcone family. I think this version of Falcone will probably be less "Don Corleone" than the comics, seeing how much emphasis there is in making everything contemporary and realistic
It’s a huge missed opportunity if you have Selina Kyle in the same film as Carmine Falcone, and don’t bother connecting them. Especially when you want to write them differently from the Hathaway version, and Long Halloween/Dark Victory is a huge influence.
If we're picking wrestlers for Sofia, I would go with Rhea Ripley.
It's just that from what we know about this movie being from Batman's PoV and Riddler being the main villain, I think the movie will be more focused on those two than in any potential subplots about Selina being a lost daughter. I mostly just imagine Falcone and Penguin having similar roles to the gangsters in TDK. I also think the whole TLH/Dark Victory angle has beeen waaaaay overstated, I don't think it'll be as profound as many seem to think because again, this movie seems to be a movie about Batman vs The Riddler.
Catwoman is said to have many scenes. May be more screen time than the main villain, Riddler. The plot is tied to Riddler but I think the movie is mainly about Bruce and Alfred. But you’re right about the POV part. They don’t have to dive deep into it, just acknowledge a strong connection between Selina and Carmine.
I hope they don't shortchange us on the Riddler. He's my second favourite Batman villain and I'd love to see an interesting new take on the role.
I’m not expecting much screen time to be honest. More tiny glimpses and then a full on third act reveal.
Change Sofia to Carmine's sister and...
Aida Turturro - IMDb
Dude, funny you say that because five years ago when I saw Sopranos, she was the only actress I could think of for the part. But would try to ignore it because she’d be too old. So weird that her brother is now playing Carmine.
Screw it, change Sofia to Carmine’s sister and have Selina as the eldest daughter. Alberto can be a early 20’s weirdo brat.
I had absolutely no idea she was his sister and I'm a diehard Sopranos fan. Learn something new everyday!
We need to get Nic to come back as in a cameo as Deadman, too.
So Aida and John Turturro are actually cousins not brother/sister.
Or make him Mario Falcone Lol. They can all be siblings with little twerp Alberto as the only son.
Carmine does have a sister, remember. They could just expand Carla’s role...
A bit of a looking the gift horse in the mouth moment, but I do wish we got a glimpse of Turturro’s Falcone. I’m very curious.
Anyone think that Falcone might be already in jail or on trial by the time the film starts? There's a whole year of Batman existing so I'd imagine he must have faced off with at least one villain?
I actually think it'd be cooler if it was Maroni who Batman took out in Year One, leading to a Falcone that's so paranoid he borders on schizophrenic over this Bat creature who's trying to hunt him down
Maroni’s been busted. Probably in Batman’s first year. Falcone is likely around and will fall, either by the hands of the Riddler or Penguin in a sequel.
Wouldn't it be neat if Penguin murdered Falcone and made it look like Riddler did it as part of his rise to power? Might make for an interesting red herring.
Unless it's Falcone being murdered in the scene at the beginning.
