If Nolan did the Riddler, he'd probably cast someone we'd least suspect.
like Jim Carey!

Nolan: "now Jim, I want you to patch in to your inner Edward Nigma again. Just reel it back a little. Oh bugga, scratch that. Like alot. Can you do that for me please?"

Carey: "Yes"

Nolan: "Good, now ACTION!"

Carey: "Riddle me this! Riddle me...."

Nolan: "Oh bloody hell! <facepalm> CUT! CUT! CUT!"
Honestly, I think Carrey could do a good "serious" Riddler with the right direction. Given the time when BF came out, Carrey was still on fire from his Ace Ventura and Mask films. Having him go all Frank Gorshin seemed to be a no-brainer. Since then, Carrey has shown range in his acting. With a director like Nolan, I think Carrey could pull of a top-notch job.

Not saying it should happen, mind you.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I always liked the idea of Jared Leto as the Riddler.

I thought Carrey was the one great thing about Batman Forever.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Carrey did exactly what he was hired to do in Batman Forever, and he did a great job. But he's proven he's more than just a comedic actor. I think he'd be more than capable of playing a Nolan-style Riddler, and playing it well.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I still like the idea of Robin Williams as Hugo Strange. Whoever started that rumor was onto something. I agree with Skywalker, Carey would act the part the way it was written and how Nolan would want it.

If they did Riddler it would have to be David Tennant playing him IMO.
Fans have been wanting that since 2008 yet I dont think Nolan cares.

Some fans do. I want David Hyde-Pierce. Others have suggested Michael Emerson from Lost.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Makes sense. We got the teaser trailer for The Dark Knight in mid-July 2007 (roughly a year before that film's release) and we got the teaser trailer for Batman Begins in July 2004 with The Village. So it makes sense.

July seems to be the month of Batman trailers, and furthermore, the final installment of the Harry Potter franchise seems like an opportune place to host the trailer.

This whole Batman thing is just a hoax. What's really going on is Nolan is doing a movie about luchadors, starring Tom Hardy.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Added to the shooting locations is the somewhat surprising choice of Glasgow. Batman to have a deep-fried mars bar and get beaten up at an Old Firm Match?

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I hope Batman has a deep fried mars bar. Those things are heavenly.


Two more have joined the cast.

Maybe tied to the mob, gunning for the mayor of Gotham. Him and Nestor will come to fisticuffs.

My money's on Nestor. He's immortal and a crimefighter.
