Paul Dano has issued a disclaimer to fans who want to imitate his “homegrown” Riddler costume, which he wore for the upcoming blockbuster The Batman.
the actor, who plays the mysterious enemy of the crusaders, revealed that his attempt to create the character’s fearsome look left his brain “very tense” after just one day film.
Matt Reeves’ new film takes on classic DC stars Robert Pattinson as the hero of the same name and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman.
Explaining his outfit choices on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Dano said he wanted to make sure to stay true to the “meticulous” nature of his character.
“It’s more of a homegrown outfit,” he said.
“I wanted the details covered, he was meticulous…so I had to cover myself in a wrap.”
“I wrapped myself in a wrap that I thought looked scary because of the light and I didn’t think I would shed my hair at the crime scene.
“The first day of filming was about an hour and I just started seeing white, and color, and my brain was so stressed… and it was the first day so you don’t want to be an actor like ‘me’ ‘ I have a bit of a headache ‘.
“You suck it (but) you can’t sweat it, that’s the problem, it goes back inside you.
He continued: “I got through the first day without telling anyone and I went home and I was probably ‘brain swelling’ on Googling in my bed.

“The next day we started poking some holes in the grip, my head could breathe, everything was a little bit better.
Addressing the audience directly, he said: “I might as well take this opportunity to issue a disclaimer to any Halloween costumers or cosplayers out there: maybe quit by wrapping clothes”.
Dano attended the all-star premiere of The Batman in London last week, along with his co-stars.
