I think the next actor to play a villain will be an off-the-wall choice, just like Ledger was.
Agreed, it was such a weird experience for me because I hadn't really seen Ledger in anything since... that Knight movie... Teen Knight? Young Knight?...

The only reason Depp is fanboy rumoured to play The Riddler is because he's the only actor people can think of who has the acting calibre to compete with and possibly make you forget Ledger's Joker...which is the biggest hurdle facing Nolan and crew.

But it ain't gonna' happen.
Then what is? Catwoman? Non-Depp Riddler? Egghead?

It's Egghead, right?
I hope Batman is the villain.

The brilliant Michael Emerson from Lost. Great idea, Stone_Cold_Sisko!

It'll probably be something unexpected, like Tom Cruise as Deadshot and Ryan Gosling as Riddler.

Tom Cruise wouldn't be able to do a Batman movie with a Straight face.

The Bat has diddled two of his wives behind his back, after a fashion.

Re: BATMAN 3 RUMOR next Villian??

I like the Michael Emerson as the Riddler idea. My own choice has been David Hyde-Pierce from Frasier. In Dark Victory, the Riddler is drawn to look very like him. But Emerson would be a fairly similar choice - smug, smart and creepy.

I'd prefer to see Paul Giammatti or Toby Jones for the Penguin, but wouldn't complain if Hoffman was cast.

I agree with Norrin Radd's comments that the actors for whatever characters are in the next movie will be unexpected. No-one saw Ledger coming or Cillian Murphy for Scarecrow. In a year, we'll all be marvelling that Nolan has cast two apparently strange choices for the movie - in another 2 years, we'll be marvelling at how good they are, while swearing that we knew they'd be great all along.

I did a search for "The Riddler" yesterday and he came up. I thought... Yeah! Good idea.

[quote=Thrall;1918045]
The only people to do a cool, interesting take on him was Dini and Timm. And even then, the character was barely in the series. He's the definition of camp.
Actually, if you look at the source material, he's not. Due to Frank Gorshin's popular version of the character (which later influenced Jim Carrey), the Riddler has seemed to be camp. The reason he was rarely used in BTAS was because the producers had problems coming up with a story that wasn't that complicated and could fit in a 22 minute time period.

All these Batman 3 rumors have been debunked.

Maybe Depp could reprise Roddy McDowell's villainous Book Worm.

Re: BATMAN 3 RUMOR next Villian??

Various DC writers talk about who they'd like to see as the next villains (err, i have no clue what Brad Meltzer is trying to say but the others are interesting)
