Casting rumors for Dark Knight sequel

Postby kingofcities » Fri Aug 01, 2008 10:14 am

This is a mix of old rumors, made-up stuff and a Julie Newmar quote but you know, I hope it happens...

Batman sequel to The Dark Knight: Johnny Depp to play The Riddler?
Johnny Depp is being tipped to play The Riddler in the sequel to The Dark Knight.

By Anita Singh, Showbusiness Editor
Last Updated: 6:43PM BST 31 Jul 2008

Heath Ledger's performance as The Joker has set the bar high for Gotham City villains, but reports in the US say studio bosses have set their sights on Depp as The Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman as The Penguin.

"Producers are convinced that the role of The Riddler is perfect for Depp. Johnny's a pro. He'll be able to take direction and still make the character his own. And what better Penguin is there than Philip Seymour Hoffman?" a source said.

They could be joining Angelina Jolie - the actress is reported to be after the role of Catwoman.

The Riddler was played by Jim Carrey in 1995 film Batman Forever and Frank Gorshin in the Sixties television series. As for The Penguin, he was portrayed on the small screen by Burgess Meredith and in 1992 film Batman returns by Danny DeVito.

Plans for the sequel are yet to be announced but it is likely to star Christian Bale reprising his role as The Caped Crusader.

The Dark Knight has smashed box office records in the US, taking $314 million in just 10 days.

There is even talk of it challenging Titanic to become the biggest movie of all time. Titanic took $600 million in the US. The Dark Knight certainly looks set to reach second place in the all-time chart and beat Star Wars, which made $460 million.

I think with the ending to The Dark Knight, as Batman is now a vigilante, it would be a great time to introduce the real Catwoman into the mix.

He did? Sorry, hadn't seen it. CBR linked this article this morning. The Penguin rumor was from a long time ago. Like before they even cast Heath as Joker. The Depp one is news to me. And Julie Newmar is responsible for the Angelina thing.

So did Nolan change his mind about the Penguin or is this complete bullshit?

And they kinda need some kind of female character in the movie.

Probably bullshit. I do however like the casting. Although I am a little trepidatious when it comes to Jolie...

I absolutely agree. That said, if it were to happen for some reason I don't think you could get better casting than Hoffman.

truthfully, i could buy Angelina as Talia al Ghul WAY before i could as Catwoman. she's got the exotic look, they're both bat-shit crazy, they've got overpowering scenery-chewing dads...it could work.

Depp would probably piss Nolan off with all the "Burton would do it this way" comments
