BS Batman rumors

12.18.2008

I tried to hold out as long as I could, thinking this obviously bullshit rumor about Eddie Murphy and Shia LaBeouf starring in the next Batman movie would just fizzle out. But nothing Batman ever seems to fizzle out no matter how ridiculous it is. So yes, we have heard the rumors posted in a British tabloid about Eddie Murphy starring as The Riddler and Shia starring as Robin. Yea, I laughed when I read it so if that was the objective, then kudos. Sadly though, the joke is getting less and less funny each time I hear it. Rest assured Bat-friends, there is nothing going on with the new Batman movie at this point and certainly nothing to do with Eddie Murphy, Shia LaBeouf or Rachel Weisz. Like he did after BATMAN BEGINS, expect Nolan to direct a non-Batman movie in between THE DARK KNIGHT and whatever the third Batman movie would be. And this is assuming he decides he even wants to do another Batman movie. I know we're all really excited about THE DARK KNIGHT and Batman but let's just agree we'll read "The Dark Knight Returns" again or rewatch THE DARK KNIGHT on Blu-ray instead of paying these lies any more attention than they're worth.

Extra Tidbit: Agreed? Agreed.

Greed is Good

Let's put an end to any speculation on weather Nolan will be coming back as if he's anymore virtuous or less ravenous than most - he's a competent director with the same scruples as anyone else... he'd like to get paid handsomely at the end of the day. One will do anything to attain affluence.

I am shocked that some people believe the bulls**t that gets printed in downmarket british newspapers. As soon as I heard this news, I new it had to be made up. And for the record, I'm British!

I also would love to see Bane done justice in the next film, alongside Black Mask and Hush for the other villains. 3rd movie, 3 villains. It could work.

Javier Bardem for Bane, augmented by prosthetics.

Its a pile of crap

There isn't anyone signed up yet.
If they did sign up ANYONE to play Robin they'd need to get a new Batman and a new production team too... Nolan won't sully Batman with that character.

Same with bignoah87 and Call me Indiana, the fact that IMDb posted it as a home story so casually, with poor punctuation and such, just pisses me off.
Clearly those British idiots are also laughing their asses off since sites like IMDb are falling for their fabricated bullshit.

I was going to post about IMDB posting these rumors as fact, but bignoah87 beat me to it. I did write to IMDB, suggesting they get their shit straight, though.

Hahahahaha....

Nolan's probably sitting on his 14K gold crapper right now reading this on his 60" bathroom plasma TV and laughing his ass off...I would be.

remember the one about Cher as Catwoman?

Please, this is pure trolling. It's easy to fool entertainment reporters; as long as you sound somewhat credible and can maintain a straight face, you could tell them Carrot Top will be playing Bane and they'd still report it.

One thing is for certain, both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight have been extremely well cast, so much so that I seriously doubt that Nolan would proceed with not one but two horrible casting choices. This is the same guy

Eddie Murphy and Shia Labeouf have been lined up to star in the next Batman movie, according to reports.

The Beverly Hills Cop actor will star as The Riddler and Labeouf will play the caped crusader's sidekick Robin in the next instalment, tentatively titled Gotham.

Actress Rachel Weisz is reportedly in the frame to play Catwoman. Christian Bale will return as Bruce Wayne and Michael Caine will again play his assistant Alfred, according to British newspaper The Sun.

The movie, which is slated for a 2010 release, will be directed by Christopher Nolan, who made The Dark Knight such a huge success when it was released this year.

A source says, .Chris wasn.t sure if he wanted to do another movie but as soon as he decided to, he got the wheels in motion. Eddie.s a fantastic addition. Everyone.s excited to see what he does as the Riddler..
