Okay, buckle your spincters.

The Riddler is to be played by:

Johnny Depp.

EDDIE MURPHY?

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/bizarre/article2048300.ece

I don't know... Murphy has the chops to do a lot of things but to pull off a "serious" role like The Riddler in the current "Batman" francise...

I don't know.

Bad, but far from the worse thing to come out of that article.

I'm calling bullshit on the whole thing.

weiner: I agree he could've played a better riddler, but now that he's played that god-awful version already I just can't imagine him getting to play the character again, differently.

I have a hard time imagining a Harley character falling for Ledger's Joker. He lacks the charisma of other recent Joker visions.

Edit: Also, someone powerful in hollywood apparently reeeeeally likes LaBoof. I don't hate him the way others seem to (despite my constantly calling him "LaBoof"), but I also just don't see what the excitement is about. Does he draw in the female audiences or something?

EditEdit: Google searched because I couldn't remember how his name is actually spelled, I did not do a google IMAGE search but nonetheless google felt the need to show me 4 pictures. This was the first. It's going to give me nightmares now... and since misery loves company, I share!

Actually, I thought he did a good job in Surf's Up. But then, I haven't seen anything else he's done (that I'm aware of (apart from the previous post no no)), so I'm probably biased.

So we're agreed.  It's better when he's not on screen.

I don't know about Ledger's Joker not being charismatic.  He's definitely shown to be manipulative enough.  And speaking of, Anne Hathaway as Harley: totally awesome.

Also, damn you Gopher!

Yeah, that article looks like a load of BS.

Nolan has always said himself that he will not introduce a Robin character into his trilogy because he wants to have Batman be a lone fighter in the movies.

Ralph may I suggest stop reading Sun articles while looking for people who know what the fuck they are talking about? tongue

I'm not even sure Riddler is right for the Nolanverse of Batman, unless they do something interesting with him like in Hush with Bruce Waynes friend the doctor.

I pictured the Riddler in the Nolan films as never really being seen on screen, opting rather to carry out his misdeeds by proxy.  Perhaps through hacking the internets or something.  He's not been a physical character until as of late and even then, not so much.

Still, they already used a more cerebral bad guy in the first film.  With the Joker in the second, I'd wager the next villain is going to be a bit more physically powerful.  Didn't Killer Croc show up in that Arkham Asylum trailer?

Yep, not sure if Nolan would do him either...
Bane as a new South American druglord or something? Although the only good Bane story is Broken Bat and the already did releasing Arkham Asylum inmates in BB, also you'd need the rogues gallery.

So is the joker going to be in the next film at all then? I think he should, just have a Weekend in Bernies style Batman - Heath Ledger as THe joker. Why change things?

If they ever do a Riddler in this universe, they had better hire a writer capable of coming up with original riddles/puns. "You'll find them all in a tennis court?" please.

I'll give you a surprise.
You're wrong.

Although the 1989 movie and Batman Returns did inspire the animated series, which does kick a lot of ass.

I'll give you a non-surprisingly obvious yet confusing-titled response to your response that could be responded to a lot more efficiently.

It had so much potential. It wasn't executed to it's greatest potential but it was still an AMAZING film.

And what about the film serials from the 40s, the 66 film with Adam West and Burt Ward (some people like that campiness) or... The Dark Knight.

The best Batman film is actually The Spirit, despite the fact that Batman isn't in it.  It's pretty much the movie that I was hoping to see every time I watched one of the Batman films.  They've all been disappointing, to varying degrees.  Well, except for the Adam West Batman movie.  That one at least delivers what I expected from it.

I watched Batman: Gotham Knight yesterday and wasn't totally disappointed.  Kevin Conroy reprised the role of Batman, which was probably most key to impressing me.  While most of the character designs and styles started feeling familiar right away, I have to say "Field Test" was a little too Japanimation for my tastes, depicting Batman as a 12 year old schoolboy in his Bruce Wayne outfit and some sort of robobird in the Batsuit.  It also contained a highly dubious, sound-activated, bullet-blocking magnet device.  All the chapters were gorier than I expected, sprays and pools of blood appearing frequently.  It was a more vivid and visceral vision of violence than there was in the either the made-for-children BTAS or any of the movies to date, but not to an extent that it overshadowed the story.  The stories themselves were pretty good too.  They offered some different and interesting perspectives on the Batman mythos.

The voice acting was pretty good.  I can't tell if it's just because of the animation styles or not, but the dialog seemed disjointed at times, as if the actors were trying to fit their performances to the animation.  Either way, I liked NCIS's Ducky as Alfred Pennyworth.  I don't know if Efram Zimbalist Jr. is dead or not, but he was a good replacement.  Ooh!  I also was pleased to recognize Rob Paulsen's voice a couple times, possibly be cause those annoying "Mr. Opportunity"commercials play all the dang time around here.
