Now now, let us not get ahead of things buddy.

Not two days after wild rumors started circulating that Angelina Jolie was looking to play Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s third chapter of the Batman Begins series...

Comes an even wilder rumor from out of the UK that Warner Bros. execs have begun eying top-notch actors Johny Depp and Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman for the roles of The Riddler and The Penguin in the next Bat-flick.

DON’T DRINK THE KOOL-AID JUST YET. For every new rumor of which villains will be featured in the next Batman film, comes another statement from Dark Knight scribes Jonathan Nolan and David S. Goyer, saying that they are trying NOT to take the obvious route of throwing the second-most iconic villains from Batman’s rogue gallery into the next film. However, as Spider-Man 3 taught us all, when a franchise reaches a certain $tature, the studio’s wishes quickly begin to trump any creative desires. Don’t be surprised to see The Riddler, The Penguin, or both, show up in the final draft of the script.

Which villains do you think should make into BB3?


whatever villain they choose, he has to be plausible, so im thinking penguin is out of the question. a fanboy blog pointed out that mr. reese is a character in tdk. mr reese is one of riddler's aliases in the comic books. whoever they choose, it better be good.

i'd love to see johnny depp play the riddler.

i remember j.c. playing the part. was entertaining, but not that substantial enough. depp would lend a dark hue to the sequel.

Right on with yah d.funkt.. I think the only concern of the true fans are the portrayals of the actors and not some oscar edge by some actors. but johnny is a great addition to the already awesome cast.

@ emmanuel:
Depp either lends a dark hue or a bright hue in his films nothing in between. {in my opinion}
