CAST THIS: The Riddler

06.10.2010

Alright, I've had it. I've heard one Riddler rumor too many, and I can't put off this column any longer, in case something official is announced at Comic-Con soon.

Ever since THE DARK KNIGHT premiered, there have been rumors about who exactly would be starring in the sequel due to the fact that no one really believed they would dare recast Ledgerís Joker.

Knowing Chris Nolanís, twisty, turny, epic mystery style of filmmaking, itís no big leap to guess that heíll use THE RIDDLER for his next villain, and craft some exceptionally intelligent, complex plot around that fact. And after months and months of speculation, Iím curious to hear who YOU guys want to play the man in green.

The latest rumor has Joseph Gordon-Levitt as ďin talksĒ for the role, something that doesnít seem super far fetched given his work with Nolan on Inception. But as the rumor comes from a Hollywood gossip site, Iím inclined to blow it off, and remember the previous ďrumoredĒ choices of David Tennant, Johnny Depp and freaking Eddie Murphy.

But who really should play the role? I think Depp is a pretty obvious choice, too obvious in fact, and I donít think Iíd want to see him in this part. I know a few of yor are going to say Neil Patrick Harris, who yes, is an awesome human being, but I donít think he could really fit into the tone of a Nolan Batman movie. No opportunities for song and dance numbers.

I actually donít really have anyone specific in mind, which is why Iím extra curious to see who you come up with. Someone lean, smart, witty and kind of insane. Who should be Edward Nigma?

Last Time: MEGAN FOX

Last Cast This, Megan Fox had just departed TRANSFORMERS 3, and the internet was all a flutter with speculation on who would take her place.

Wellll, you guys didnít exactly have many concrete ideas, and choices ranged from Betty White to ďMicahel Bay in a wig.Ē Ha. Someone said Kristen Stewart, but I couldnít tell if they were joking or not.

And now we know that yes, Rose Huntington-Whitely has taken her place, and we will see if being able to wear underwear and walk in a straight line allows you to be the star of a major movie franchise.

OK, letís hear those Riddler suggestions!

Extra Tidbit: I vote that as fanmade poster of the year.

Why cant we recast the Joker???

I mean people keep acting like there isn't a suitable choice to replace Ledger when I see that face every awards show. Joan Rivers!!! She has that same sick, unfunny, twisted sense of humor! Just have her cut back on the make up and some green hair dye and she's good to go.

... I suppose if they must cast someone, I'm cool with Jospeh Gordan-Levitt and Michael C. Hall... And it's a long shot, but Daniel Day Lewis could do for the Riddler what Ledger did for the Joker.

Maybe Matt Smith? Or Tom Baker?

Seriously though, Tennant would be good but i had never considered Eccleston. He would be amazing. But neither of them will ever happen. It's going to be an A or B list actor and they're never goign to make the riddler English and definitely not Scottish.

Guys to be honest with you i dont think i can give an honest opinion until i see levitt in INCEPTION. Right now I like either JGL or Michael Fassbender. I'd really like a story line that could incorporate the riddler into Black Mask's plans. what do you think?

levitt may...

be too heavy on the ledger looks, depp can do it because u need a first class character actor to do it, but depp is identifiable as too many characters already. If you go with the flavor of the last 2 films then you have to think 're-imagining' and that means more psychosis and less laughter, but if that happens you may as well call the movie batman vs joker pt2. you need a completely different villan, croc, maybe even Jean Paul Valley, a hero war of sorts. I dont know, but riddler always

Wouldn't it be great and ironic to end Nolan's trilogy casting Keaton as E. Nigma, since he was the original Batman?

I'm still not convinced that The Riddler will be the next villain, but if so, Levitt has my vote.

I'll put my money on Catwoman as the next villain. Batman will have some Rachl issues to work out in the next film and they could bring in the Falcone family for an interesting story (and a nice wrapup to the Gotham mob secondary plot from the first two films).

Levitt's a safe bet. Tom Hardy. Shannon is a good choice too. I think Copley has the scrawny look that I'd expect. Leo and Depp are too big to play second fiddle, plus they might overshadow Bale/Batman like the Joker did in TDK. I can't imagine they'd want that to happen again, especially if this closes the book on Nolan's series. On a side note, does anyone else think that Levitt kinda looks like Heath?

I sort of thought that William Fichtner would end up being the Riddler because he was already tied with the mob by being their banker and he already seems pretty aggressive. When Joker says to him "What doesn't kill you only makes you stranger." I thought that might have been a precursor to him becoming the Riddler. I read it as Joker didn't kill him so this event will make him into something stranger (The Riddler). Perhaps Joker will have been an inspiration to him after seeing him pull off

Seeing as Fichtner's role was originally offered to Dwight Yoakam, I would find it hard to believe the role was meant as a precursor to the Riddler. Yoakam's a good actor, but Riddler he ain't.

My pick is still for Michael C. Hall, but I think another good choice would be Hugh Laurie from House M.D. I think he would make an interesting Riddler.

My Response to Rodie

RE:Rodie - Why is it assumed
that The Riddler will even be in BATMAN 3?

Why wouldn't he be? It's a perfect fit in the Chris Nolan world. He stayed with villains who didn't possess supernatural powers. Riddler would be perfect. Edward Nigma is an extremely smart guy who just can't help but to give away his plots to Batman in the form of riddles. It would totally work! With that being said, I give my vote to Michael C. Hall.

He is one of the few actors around that can be great in an action role, a drama or a comedy, and my guess is The Riddler, if done, will be a mix of these.

Though, as for Batman 3, I'd rather see Bane get a proper retelling as the genius kingpin like character that he is.

BUT

If someone HAS to be The Riddler, I'd like to see either Ben Foster or Vincent Cassel. I really like Levitt, and maybe there's a supporting role somewhere in Batman 3 for him, maybe as a detective who aids Bruce or a Wayne Enterprises employee of some kind, but not as the Riddler or other big villain.

Why is it assumed

that the Riddler will even be in BATMAN 3? If you look at the villain choice as related to the theme of the film, and take into account the plot and ending of TDK, I don't really see how the Riddler (in his traditional form) fits at all in with where this story is headed. Maybe as a minor role like Maroni in TDK, but certainly not as the main villain, unless Nolan radically reworks the character.

I mean in all honesty, if we can forget the terrible Schumacher films, Jim Carrey's grown a lot as an actor in the past generation, and to see him take a darker, real spin on the character would be incredible, and the only way to follow Heath's performance.
So. Srsly. Jim Carrey.

I'd like to see someone with intense acting chops, like Mark Rufallo in this role.

Give the film a tone reminiscent of "Se7en". The Riddler a serial killer providing an opportunity to showcase Batmans Detective side.
More a thriller than "Super hero" flick.
I'd like to see someone with intense acting chops, like Mark Rufallo in this role.

I've read...

...most everyone's comments and there are a lot of good picks. I'm sure whoever is will be f'n awesome! Truthfully, I don't know who I'd like to see in that role yet. Pearce, JGL, Hall is an up and comer...I just don't know...

1. Casey Affleck
2. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
3. Michael C. Hall


Johnny Depp would have been good for the part 10 years ago, i thinks he's just a bit too old for the part now. still a great actor though

I have to go with David Tennant and just level of intense lunacy he could bring to The Riddler. Just go and watch a couple Doctor Who episodes and you'll see that he's a nut. Perfect casting.

I still think that Johnny Depp would be a good pick. I think you need a name. Someone who can hold a scene with Christian Bale. I even think Leo Dicaprio would be interesting or Joseph Gordon Levitt if Nolan enjoyed working with them.

Also, in terms of the title of the third film, it just makes perfect sense for it to be called The Dark Knight Returns. I mean, c'mon, it just makes sense, right???

i would support the choice of casting JGL, Guy Pearce, Michael C. Hall, Jude Law, and Casey Affleck. I also think Josh Hartnett could make a menacing riddle, but overall i think Paul Bettany is the actor that looks most like the riddler and he's played the role of a villain before.

I liked the Joseph Gordon-Levitt rumor quite a bit. That being said, Michael C. Hall is my choice, cause the man needs a solid movie role to prove his incredible worth to a main stream audience. He's brilliant.

He can play really smart (V for Vendetta) and really menacing (The Matrix) plus he really look's the role and wouldn't play it campy like Jim Carrey did or just be another version of Heath Ledger's Joker either, Also BOB HOSKINS as The Penguin.

Eric Bana or Tom Hardy

I think Christopher Nolan will pick from the left field. Also likely that it might be a non-American actor.

Bana has the acting chops and might be a refreshing change as Riddler.

I also think Christopher Nolan will try to keep the Riddler distinctly apart from the Joker.

Whoever is picked, I am seeing it on the first day. Haven't seen a Nolan picture that I haven't liked. If I had to say it Prestige is his "worst" but even that was a superior film compared to so many other movies that

7. Jeff Goldblum

8. Out of left-field but David Hyde Pierce looks like the "BTAS" Riddler.

But the rumor of JGL as Riddler I wouldn't mind him playing Mr. Nygma, however, he'd be more suited as a Joker-replacement.

Pretty much everything anyone has said has some good reason behind it. I just don't know. I want them ALL to play the Riddler. :D

But as for who I could realistically see playing as Edward.... I'd have to go with either Michael C Hall or Joseph Gordon-Levitt. :)

Of course if we had the ability to audition every actor in hollywood, as Nolan is able to do, we would also be able to find that 'one' no one thought about, or didn't see in that light, but we dont have actors banging down our doors to audition so we can only go by what we have seen, but again, goign back to Joe11, only Damiel-Day has the magnitude as an actor to capture the public's attention.

Whoever Nolan Picks

If "Cast This" had been running its comlumn when the Dark Knight was casting for the Joker, there's no way in hell ANYONE would have said Heath Ledger. I remember the majority of people even having doubts about him playing the iconic villian... and obviously we all know how that turned out.

I'm not going to even submit a guess. Nolan will pick someone who all of us will doubt, and then be blown away by.

Besides he's had a shite run with his health this past year and I just want him to be successful and happy.

I like Ryan Gosling, Guy Pearce, Ben Foster, and Sam Rockwell. Whoever is picked, I know they will deliver, because remember all the doubt surrounding Heath at first?

SAFE PICKS
Sam Rockwell
Adrien Brody

WILD CARDS
Ryan Gosling
Jude Law

Personally, I think Jude Law is in prime form when playing a creep, Road to Perdition is his best performance. And honestly, I can see Ryan Gosling pulling off something no one else would be able to bring. He's the closest thing we have to a modern day Brando. I could see him & Nolan coming up with a great character, unlike him and Peter Jackson who couldn't handle his odd character choices.

My Riddler Pick

Guy Pearce would totally rock this role. He's played in a Nolan movie already and would fit right in to his universe.

Jeff - wait for it - Goldblum.


I would suggest Jackie Earle Hayley, but I think it'd be a mistake for him to play another iconic and/or comic book character any time soon.

Hate to say "I told ya so...."

Kinda thought since 'Inception' JGL had a shot at the Riddler. Still would wanna see him as The Joker.

BUT....seeing how the reseble each other....think they'll go with the brothers angle? Riddle/Joke?

Uglh.

I'm so sick of all these casting wishes. How about they keep the actor cast a complete secret then reveal it in the film. That would be a shocker.

The Riddler is already cast...

Isn't it pretty obvious that The Dark Knight's Mr. Reese IS The Riddler?

What happens to that character perfectly fits the Riddler's origin, not only that, but even his name 'Mr. Reese' (Mysteries) is a clue.

Too bad that guy is a terrible actor and would never be able to fill the shoes of Ledger, atleast from what Ive seen of him from TDK. They are definitely gonna cast a big name actor, well bigger than that guy, to play the main villain.

I would of thought the bank manager from Prison Break would more likely be the Riddler.

When they first announced Heath as the Joker I thought it was terrible casting but he was amazing & rocked it. I kinda get the same vibe as Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He could be amazing but as yet I'm not to sure.

I'm still for David Tennant see: [link] or Euan McGregor.

Maybe on the outside, after his role in Sherlock, Jude Law or way outside Giovanni Ribisi. Actually now I think about it Ribisi would be amazing.

wooooooooo

JGL would of been GREAT to come back as the joker. $hit in half of 500 days he makes the same facial expressions as ledger, some all too creepy its so close in comparison.

idk if it will be the riddler because the riddler is a lot like joker. the rest of batmans enemies are too comic book world characters. these movies are great because it feels so real. dark knight should of ended with the joker dangling and at that moment is when he lets it be known that batman had to make a choice of

anyway on to my thoughts if it is the joker - bring back jim carrey?? no but for real it needs to be someone serious who can be funny - TOM HANKS!

think outside the box

What about Sigourney Weaver? Denzel Washington? Simon Pegg? Come to think of it, I'd buy my ticket now, if they cast Pegg as the Riddler.

i'd choose actors that would be good because of their range and ability to be charming one moment and super creepy another, like : William Defoe, Ethan hawke,David Tennant,Josh Hartnett and seth green{because he can play creepy and already has the hair} -- but really, all you have to do to REALLY pick out an actor for this, is to picture them in costume saying the line " riddle me this..." that rules out alot of people, doesnt it?

NPH!

NPH would be sweet in this, and I have no doubt he could pull it off. Or John Malkovich...just think of him saying "riddle me this" in a monotone voice.
Oh, and "Gotham Knights" is the DUMBEST name for a Batman movie ever. It should be something like "Shadow Of The Bat"
