Cool. So it's still a possibility that Prey could provide some of the framework for TDKR. Williams can do creepy weirdo roles well, though I admit he's not the first one I'd imagine playing Strange.

This could work. Strange and Bane both want the same thing, and neither of them are strong enough to be the main villain for 2 hours and 15 minutes, so they could split the load. If this is true, I'm guessing Strange would also have a bigger role than Bane.

Strange could hire Bane... be the muscle, Strange is the brains...

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

The combination of Williams being a big Batman fan and having worked with Nolan before (with one of the best performances of his career), I'm praying this is true. I've always loved Williams' work, both comedic and dramatic.

I don't know anything about Hugo Stange other than what I've read on the net, but I'm a big Robin Williams fan so I'm hoping this is true.

I'm sorry I don't mean to be rude...but how can you be a big fan of someone's if you've only seen a handful of his movies?

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

I consider myself a Robin Williams fan and most of his movies are terrible. He's really much more entertaining as a regular comic outside of film. He's a hilarious guy, but he seems to have no taste whatsoever when it comes to choosing which movies to appear in.

It would be fun to see him as a Batman villain though.

I do hope you're excepting Insomnia and One Hour Photo.

It would be interesting if more than 20 years after being linked with the role of the Joker and then the Riddler Williams finally did play a Bat-villain. Given how well he worked with Nolan in Insomnia, he might actually suit a creepy role like Strange better than an OTT role like Joker or Riddler.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

Not to mention "Worlds Greatest Dad" he's exceptional in this and it's my favorite performance from Williams.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

And let's not forget Good Will Hunting (which came out only 14 years ago). You know, the one where he won an Oscar.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

Okay, three or four instances of Williams doing good work in the last 15 years. We also have:

Night at the Museum 2 (the first one was okay)
Man of the Year
RV
Flubber
Patch Adams (melodramatic schlock about a quack doctor)
Death to Smoochy
License to Wed
Nine Months
Ms. Doubtfire
Toys
Hook
Father's Day


Looking at his IMDB page those are the ones that stuck out the most to me as being his "bad" or "questionable" work where he pretty much just acts like a coked-out idiot the whole time.

He has done some good dramatic work (One Hour Photo, Dead Poet's Society) but from the looks of things most of his work the last couple decades has either been forgettable dramatic pieces (which can go either way if they're movies no one is likely to have remembered), "act like a lunatic comedies", "odd situation comedies" (like Ms. Doubtfire which while... "okay" still was only funny because it was "Robin Williams as an old woman.") or genuinely, good, roles. Bicentennial Man I could go either way on.

He's funny, has (had) some good stand-up and done some good even great work. But he's really a mixed bag and I think he's another one of those actors whom the director has to "control" to get good work out of. But maybe it's just me but when I look at Robin Williams I don't think of "hard acting, dramatic ball of awesome" I think of hirsute coke-addled nutcase.

Maybe Nolan could get something "good" out of him but, personally, I don't think he'd be a good fit.

All IMHO, of course.

This would be very cool if true. That would be an amazing cast right there.
