I'm so excited for this final Nolan film to come out, that I really hope they don't f*ck it up. Mostly with the casting.

Johnny Depp and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the Riddler are serious no's in my opinion. I don't think either of them could really pull it off. (Sure Depp has had his fair share of eccentric characters, but I said has had. Let's keep it that way.)
And Jgl, he's just really too young. And I don't think he'd quite fit. I also wouldn't be able to take him seriously as E. Nygma.

As for James Franco, I'd just be thinking Harry Osborn.....what?

And Leonardo Dicaprio? No.

I don't know. Thoughts?

I'm against the idea of there even being the Riddler. But I guess there aren't too many big-named villains to choose from now that the Joker is out of the picture. sad.gif

Johnny Depp: NO. PLEASE NO. It's gotten a bit boring with him playing all the weird characters; I wish he'd play some more 'normal' ones for a bit. Ugh.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt: I was actually quite excited for this. I didn't think he'd make a very good Riddler at first, given how he's just soooo cuute. But he can do some pretty weird ass faces, and I think he's got the acting chops to pull it off. But now that his name's no longer on the IMDB page... I don't know.

James Franco: He's too pretty. Great actor, but I can't see him as the Riddler at all. Would definitely be interested in seeing him try though.

Leonardo DiCaprio: You said it. No.

I know! When I heard the Riddler was the main villain, I was like..._unsure.gif I was hoping they'd put the Mad Hatter in it, but then that would just be too much like Inception. I think they should bring back Scarecrow though.

It would seriously suck to replace the Joker, but I honestly think Jgl could pull it off.



Although it's not going to happen, I can definitely see Jgl as the Joker than see him as the Riddler. I'm not sure if he could pull it off acting-wise though.

I heard they were also considering David Tennant for the role.

Guy Pearce will always be my first choice.


badly 'shopped but who cares

I agree with bringing back the scarecrow, but as far as the joker I think it should be done. Ledger just played him to a T and I wouldn't be able to really enjoy anyone else playing him. Not anytime soon at least.

I could deal with Levitt playing him. I'd bet money that Depp will end up playing him though.

idk I think the riddler will be hard for anyone to pull off. I mean I can't really recall anyone who pulled off that role before.
Joanne
I thought Jim Carrey did a decent job. It was a little too reminiscent of The Mask, but it was okay.

Damn, David Tennant would make a great Riddler, imo.

liking the idea of the third and final.


i think the directors would bring a great audience if they added in sub/minor villians into the arena. bad guys like harley quinn, poison ivy, doctor freeze ( i think ), scarecrow, the croc guy, etc etc. this would bring so much hype to the movie
Joanne
I think Harley Quinn is kind of a nobody without a Joker, and Mr. Freeze and Killer Croc are kind of boring to me.

I'd be interested to see Nolan's take on Poison Ivy though! Maybe even some Bane (though I think he looks ridiculous)... I hated how they dumbed him down in Batman & Robin.

damn hater, going to put whale guts all over cb!!!! i loved harley quinn and mr. freeze

Agree. I kind of think Bane wouldn't fit at all.

I'm pretty sure there's definitely going to be more than just the Riddler as far as other villains go. I know that Mr. Freeze isn't going to be in it for sure.
I hope Nolan won't put the Penguin in it. He bores me too.

not real but I like this.
Joanne
Dang, he'd look f*cking awesome as The Riddler. Don't really know if NPH would be able to pull it off though.
futura
haha I agree. Supposedly Tom Hardy might be cast? I really hope he's not the Riddler. I can definitely see him as Croc though. (Although, putting Croc in the next film...._unsure.gif)
BlueHeroBH
Tom Hardy HAS been cast as a "lead role", no confirmation if he's the villain yet though.
futura
yeah I read he may just be a cop or something

I love you Joanne, but hammer.gif :p


I think Harley can be a stand alone - in fact, I could a dig her character going bat shit nutsier with Joker not around.

Not liking any idea of NPH as Riddler. I don't have a particularly good reason, I just don't buy it. I would have loved JGL as the Riddler. He's utterly adorable, but I can imagine him being creepy as well.

"Batman: The Dark Knight Rises" is the clever title of the movie.
Joanne
And no Riddler!
futura
Tom Hardy --> Bullock

I see it.

Bale's last Batman is this upcoming one... Good or Bad? What's your take?
Joanne
I honestly don't really care too much about Christian Bale being Batman... I'm more concerned about the director. I'm sad that this will be Nolan's last Batman film. sad.gif
futura
maybe Nolan will be like "NO LET'S DO A FOURTH, WE NEED A FOURTH"

/hopes

I think he looks kind of Riddler-esque in this picture? Hehe.

Anne Hathaway as Catwoman/Selina Kyle, Tom Hardy as Bane.....
