John Turturro on the Carmine Falcone Twists in ‘The Batman’

the batter star John Turturro is candid about the big twists in the film regarding his character, Carmine Falcone.

the batter universe may be best known for its colorful collection of mentally ill villains, but often organized crime also plays a huge role in the world of Gotham. The most notable of these gangs are the Falcone and Maroni families who operate as rivals in Batman’s home city. They also played a big part in the Robert Pattinson movie.


In the film, John Turturro portrays the crime boss, Carmine Falcone, who has more ties to Bruce Wayne than he ever suspected. It is revealed that Falcone and Bruce Wayne’s father, Thomas Wayne, had a personal relationship with Thomas who saved Falcone’s life from a gunshot wound. Later, when Thomas Wayne was running for mayor, a journalist discovered Martha Wayne’s history of mental illness and was determined to bring the story to light. Finally, Thomas went to Falcone, who in turn had the journalist murdered. When Bruce Wayne asks John Turturro’s character about this, he confirms the story and suggests that it was his rival Salvatore Maroni who had his parents killed.

Later in the film, Batman confronts Alfred with this story, which largely confirms it. However, he also reveals that Thomas Wayne was shocked by Carmine Falcone’s actions and planned to take the story to the police. Strangely, Thomas and Martha Wayne were shot the next night, but Alfred could not confirm who actually did it.

In real life, John Turturro grew up in New York City and used his father’s advice about the mafia to shape Carmine Falcone’s character. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he didn’t confirm the story in any way, but indicated that a man like Falcone probably believed the story he told Bruce Wayne whether it was true or not:

“I think there are people who say ‘I didn’t do something’, even when they did it. And over time, they believe the alternate version they created. I thought he was a dangerous guy, and I guess I don’t see him [the Waynes’ murder] was pretty awesome.”
