UPDATE: According to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, THE BATMAN‘s version of The Riddler (Paul Dano, see below) will be named Edward Nashton — his original name from the comics — instead of Edward Nigma.

Also per the trade, Dano was nominated for an Emmy for his role in Escape at Dannemora. The actor directed, co-wrote and produced the critically acclaimed film Wildlife. His other film credits include Love and MercyPrisoners12 Years a SlaveThere Will Be BloodLittle Miss Sunshine,Youth and Okja, and others.

I don’t now much about the guy personally, but he has an impressive resume and kinda looks the part.
