Morpheus & Batman?

01.14.2004

Continuing their string of recent BATMAN scoops, Dark Horizons returns with news that Christopher Nolan is close to signing Laurence Fishburne to star in the small but pivotal role of Lucius Fox. According to Garth, Fishburne would be signed to a three-year deal, similar to the one Michael Caine signed when he agreed to play Alfred. The role of Lucius could be an expanding one in any sequels that may arise out of this BATMAN. The character of Fox is Bruce Wayne's second-in-command at WayneEnterprises but it's unclear how he'll fit into Christopher Nolan's vision of BATMAN. DH also reports that Academy Award winner Chris Cooper is Nolan's first choice to play Commissioner Gordon in the film but the actor turned down repeated offers by Nolan and the WB. All that hasn't turned off the persistent Nolan who is "doggedly pursuing" Cooper for the role. A news conference is expected to take place at the end of the month to announce the rest of the hirings and unveil a brief glimpse at the plot. Until then we will continue to speculate. Filming begins in February.
