Reeves previously revealed the names of other cast members -- such as Paul Dano (The Riddler,) Zoe Kravitz (Catwoman,) John Turturro (Carmine Falcone,) Andy Serkis (Alfred) and Jeffrey Wright (Commissioner Gordon) -- on the social-media platform.
The movie is set for theatrical release in 2021 with 33-year-old Twilight alum Robert Pattinson playing the titular comic-book hero.
