According to Patreon scooper Daniel Richtman, the film’s villain is described as a man in his fifties or sixties that’s an ex-firefighter.

The prototype for the role is Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell – the two “Tango & Cash” co-stars who are still going hard at it in the likes of the “Rocky” and “Fast & Furious” franchises, respectively.

Its very rare that the ‘prototype’ for a role is cast – usually because the actor is unattainable – but might Sly Stallone, who very rarely plays bad guys, be a good fit for a Batman baddie? (trivia : Stallone was originally approached to play Batman in the 1989 Tim Burton film).

Discuss amongst yourselves.
