Nestor Carbonell returning to his role as the mayor in The Dark Knight Rises

04.15.2011

Quick BATMAN news ahead.

Richard Alpert Nestor Carbonell is currently in negotiations to come back as the mayor in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, according to Variety.

Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman are returning. Nolan Bats newbies Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Juno Temple, and Josh Pence are on board as well. The article also mentions that Diego Klattenhoff (MEAN GIRLS) and Burn Gorman (LAYER CAKE) are being eyed for supporting roles in the film.

We still have no idea where the plot it going. Will the League of Shadows come into play or will we see some Knightfall storyline action? Until we get some more details all we can do is speculate.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES will release on July 20, 2012.

Thought he was good in Dark Knight...

But weirdly, I never ever considered whether or not he would return until just now. That's what all the villain hype will do to you, I guess.

Awesome

Looks like a lot of the cast from the previous films is returning for the final chapter, but still no mention of Cillian Murphey. I can't be the only one hoping for a short scene of Crane in Arkham or something, right?

I'm pretty sure Murphy's return in the last movie wasn't announced ahead of time either. I'd love to go in and get a cameo without really expecting it. Although, unless the story calls for it it's not needed.

Niki, if in your extra tidbit you were at all possibly alluding to the notion that Nestor bears a striking resemblance to the new Chicago mayor, then...THANK YOU! I live in Chicago, and Nestor is a DEAD RINGER DOPPLEGANGER for Rahm Emmanuel. It's not just the look either. They both seem to have that "Don't fuck with me, I'll punch you in the esophagus" temperament. Btw, sorry to any Pittsburgh residence, but here in the windy city we've decided that if DKR in any ends up NOT being the greatest

It will say Puck Fittsburgh. But until that seemingly impossible predicament happens, nothing but love for you guys. Congrats. Now we'll have another thing in common alongside hating the Greenbay Packers.

It's a live action The Tick reference, in which he was excellent.

Excellent quote sir. But some of us in Pittsburgh have great respect for the Green Bay Packers. They are a very similar organization who actually have a head coach and numerous staff members who hail from Pittsburgh. Also, Chicago had the great Mike Ditka, also a by product of the Burgh. However, let the rivalry commence and right back at you. You stay classy Chicago.

YES! This guy is a superb British actor. I'm glad he'll be in a project this size.

He just has really dark eyelashes. On one of the Lost dvds, someone in the make up department talks about how they actually have to lighten his lashes. Yeah, I dropped that dork card.

I've heard that he just has really dark eyes or whatever... that or it's actually a lot of eyeliner. Maybe Gotham's really progressive and they elected a drag queen mayor?

Of course I trust Nolan, but man, that cast is getting huge.

Love it

The more former Losties getting big film roles the better. I'd except the Mayor to have a bigger part in this but seeing Nestor in the flick even for a scene gets me geeky.

Super stoked that Burn Gorman is in talks for a role. He was brilliant in BBC's Torchwood!
I'm really glad that this movie has a big cast. It's Nolan's final Batman film, so the story and the cast should represent the size and scope of that.
Good luck, Nolan. We're all counting on you.

I still don't get why they replaced Die Fladermaus with Batmanuel for the live-action show.
