I think Firefly should be played by Nathan Fillion.
That would be funny.
And hey Firefly could still be a thug for hire. His getup could just be toned down. Not like Nolan kept strictly to Joker's origin afterall.
Yeah, the Penguin was supposed to be little more than a well-dressed, odd-looking, mobster king-pin. Tim Burton went of his medication, went morose and insane and decided everything needed to be dark and edgy. Thus in his movie The Penguin went from "odd looking, well-dressed, mobster" to "sewer-dwelling freak."
Consider all of the use of the mob in the Nolan Batman world The Penguin as he's "suppposed to be" would fit in very nicely. With his heaviness, typcastedness in the role. and his adenoid problem James Gandolfini would work.
Hell to heck with the Penguin. Just have Gandolfini in the movie talking to his psychatrist.
Wait, do we need a Batman? Not really. Maybe he can mention him in passing like he name-drops Rico and that'd be that.
That sad, Gandolfini excels at the noveau riche slob kind of mobster, rather then the pretentiously arisocratic bearing the Penguin's classic attire suggests... so I guess he wouldn't be typecast? I dunno.
Aristocratic Penguin? David Suchet.
I'm sure the same thing can be done with pretty much all the colorful villains. Just tone down what needs to be toned down. I think that's the key right there to making them work. It's a better approach than the constant assertion that "so and so doesn't fit".
It's Bob Hoskin's for me or no penguin at all
I liked Paul Giamatti, but maybe he's too over the top.
No, he's great. Let's have Paul Giamatti as the Penguin, James Gadolfini as Tony Alto, Zoe Saldana as Catwoman (because it's not enough to me that she's Uhura and Neytiri, let's put her in anything I like) and Christian Bale in the back gnashing his teeth and growling his delivery about his preferred breakfast cereal and we're good to go.
There was even talk, mostly just fan talk, a while back about Phillip Seymor Hoffman playing The Penguin.
I'd really like to see The Penguin in this movie series, to see the character doen right. With all the mob stuff built in the series already it's primed for him already.
We really need a consolidated thread now.
I hope elements of Batman Strange Apparitions work their way into this too. I'd love Hugo Strange as the main Villain.
Did you make that?
i think you just meant 'shit'...
I was really bored...
If the rumors of the movie are true, this trailer for the video game Arkham City could pass for The Dark Knight Rises:
Yep the game looks really good...and also Stana Katic is reprising her role as Talia in it
I really like a comment about that I read somewhere else - "Hugo Strange must have a hell of an agent if he's in the movie AND this game".
