Thanks to the huge success of The Dark Knight rumours have been flying out the door ever since regarding the plot, villains, and other characters that could appear in ‘Batman 3’. Rather than posting every rumour I waited until I stumbled across the best and most outrageous one yet.
First Angelina Jolie was said to be interested in playing Catwoman, there was a mention of Cher, and the latest rumour has Rachel Weisz according to E! Online who has it on good authority from a source within Warner Bros.
Then there was mention of Philip Seymour Hoffman as the Penguin and Johnny Depp as The Riddler, but The Sun apparently now has ‘the real deal’ when it comes to ‘Batman 3’ which has a working title of Gotham apparently.
Now, are ready for the craziest most absurd casting rumour yet? Eddie Murphy has been cast by Christopher Nolan to play… The Riddler. That’s not all. Nope apparently the fact that Nolan himself said Robin hasn’t been born in his Batman isn’t stopping WB from signing Shia Lebeouf for the role.
There you have it. It’s official. Gotham will feature Robin and the Riddler.
The only problem is that Christopher Nolan said during the live commentary that they haven’t even started working on a story as of yet.
