So Christopher Nolan, when you gonna start on Batman 3?

06.29.2010

Let's just be honest here.

If we see the words, BATMAN or Christopher Nolan pop-up in the JoBlo news, we immediately click. Hell, even just Batman. We put a BATMAN porn parody up and there was immediate excitement.

MTV got a hold of Nolan during some interviews for INCEPTION, and had to ask him a Bats related question.

They pass up the casting rumors and settle with asking a question about the start date. Want to know what Nolan says? Check out the video below...

Nolan PLEASE...

PLEASE reconsider Joseph Gordon Levitt in a cameo as The Joker. Don't ignore the character and waste JGL's resemblance! Also, Michael C. Hall is would be the perfect Riddler. Either way I excited for the movie. TDK is my favorite movie of all time. Been a Joker fan since '89(I was 5) and I'm glad to see he wasn't killed off finally.

in a nolan batman film the riddler cannot have good comic timing. In fact he should not be funny at all. That would make him look too much like the joker or Jim Carreys riddler.

the riddler casting

anywhich way they go about it...this film is gonna be epic...we all already know it. this isn't going to be a batman movie...just like how begins and TDK weren't...this is gonna be another awesome Nolan movie which happens to have a superhero in it. anyway, whatever decision they make about the casting...i think the should cast sharlto copley as the riddler. we've had too much of depp in my opinion. copley is a brilliant actor, can do accents really well, has pretty good comic timing and looks

I still got my vote for Edward Norton. People remember that Nolan likes to do realistic villians. Clayface, man bat, and mr freeze aren't going to happen.

Just make this fucking movie already. And give the role of the Riddler to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, probably the only actor who could live up to the high bar set by Heath Ledger (may he rest in peace).

I wouldnt mind a serious mr.freeze but it doesnt fit in this universe, also the mad hatter is not that popular....perhaps killer croc and the ventriloquist?

I think the riddler will be there, althought his universe is set in realism, the movies need recognizable villains (at least one).....

Finally, if they use bane please make him Huge...thats the whole point! :)

Robin Williams

Ok, so the guy says he wants to be a villain. Who would you have him be? Obviously not the Riddler, he would make it like the Jim Carry disaster version and too comedic. I would like to see him as the Arkham Warden or something...

Williams is wrong

I love when Robin Williams does his serious roles. Like everyone has said he is great in Insomnia and One Hour Photo and What Dreams May Come is one of my favorite movies, but he is wrong for the Riddler. Its not that I don't believe that he can't make a great performance out of it, but he won't be able to disappear in the role like Ledger. Seriously when I watch TDK I have to remind myself that it is Heath Ledger on screen. He is so completely absorbed in that role that you actually think you

Williams is a great actor but he'll always be ROBIN WILLIAMS. And when I'm watching The Riddler on screen I don't want to be thinking of Mrs. Doubtfire.

A new villain

We have had The Joker, Catwoman, Penguin, Two-Face, Ra's al Ghul, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, and Mr. Freeze(the last tow not so memorable), let's finally get a new villain, someone not seen yet. I am all for Clayface, Killer Croc, The Ventriloquist with Scarface, or even Hush.

People that say Riddler is basically a Joker haven't read the comics!

The Riddler and Joker are definitely two very different characters. Joker being a sociopath, while the Riddler chooses to be an enigma who likes proving his intelligence higher than that of Batman. The reason I'd love to see the Riddler is not because he's "realistic", but because Nolan loves mind games and the Riddler plays a lot of them.

You totally gutted my post and missed the point. Nobody said "Riddler is basically a Joker," and nowhere was I addressing the comics. I admit to not having read many, but I think I know enough about each of the characters to speculate a bit.

What I SAID was that I was having a hard time imagining how they could differentiate the characters on screen in Nolan's Gotham. I think TDK portrayed the Joker's behavior and methods in a very similar light as the scheming, manipulative Riddler.

I think TDK portrayed the Joker's behavior and methods in a very similar light as the scheming, manipulative Riddler. Sure, Joker's more sadistic and murderous, but he's pretty damn playful with Batman and likes to screw with his head with "mind games," too (as you say Riddler does). What can Riddler bring that's fresh and interesting enough that Joker DIDN'T bring to The Dark Knight? Sure, you can list off a bunch of storylines and probably prove me wrong, but from my view, the character would be watered-down in comparison to the Joker and just a less effective villain.

Knowing how smart the Nolans are, they'll figure a way to bring something fresh and original. My point is that I personally cannot see Riddler being the answer because of his similarities to the Joker. Furthermore, the Nolans know more than anyone the difficult task that lies before them. Topping TDK is going to be a feat-and-a-half. The stakes HAVE to be higher than the last film, and I just don't think Riddler can bring enough to the table without straying into the already-traversed Joker territory.

I'd really prefer Nolan to use a villian we haven't seen yet. Yes, Riddler and Catwoman would fit great in Nolan's universe and he could do great things with them, but I'd be way more excited to see Nolan's take on Batman villian that hasn't been on screen yet. But I agree with the post below that Riddler could be treated too much like the Joker if they used him.

I don't see Robin Williams being a good fit for the riddler. Casting tip, don't get a comedian to do the role (I'm pointing at you Jim Carrey). Nothing against Mr Williams, as he has done some great serious roles in the past, but Nolans films have the darker edge and The Riddler should not be just a comedian.

I agree with you, Kill. I've got my personal and picky beefs with the bloated dialogue and the occasional convoluted plot points of The Dark Knight, but my main issue was that they didn't give me a chance to fall in love with the characters all over again. Granted, the sequel was obviously taking off from the first one. However, I didn't think they had to TAKE OFF like a bullet from a gun. DK is certainly a pulse-pounding and epic flick with some superb performances, but I wish I would've

Begins was a perfectly paced and carefully plotted origin story that just clicked on every level for me. You're not crazy, dude.

I agree. The Dark Knight was like a better version of the 90's batman films, a mix of Batman and Villian stories. Begins was the only Batman film to put the focus on Batman/Bruce Wayne.

Multiple Villians just like the other two

The first two movies successfully blended the Falcone family, R'as Al Ghul, Scarecrow and Joker, Two-Face as well as cameos of sorts from Zsaz and Joe Chill. It's almost inevitable that The Riddler and The Falcone family would be in the third as other characters would start to be pulling us out of the more realistic realm Nolan has created. Riddler could easily be placed in that realm, as could Penguin. Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Killer Croc etc would be totally out of bounds without blowing

It's also not out of the realms of possibility that they will write in that Two-Face didn't die at the end of The Dark Knight, but was in a coma, and as the public at large was not aware of Dent's collapse into insanity, weren't aware of how dangerous he had become.

Whatever happens, I'm looking forward to the return of Wayne Manor and the Batcave.

It's funny how everyone is assuming Riddler is in. If there was some announcement, please post and prove it because I don't recall anything more than speculation. I guess people are jumping on the idea because he's both a popular and "realistic" villain who'd make an interesting addition to Nolan's gritty Gotham.

Personally, though, Riddler is too similar to Joker IMO. Now before people go ballistic about the stark differences between the two, hold off and let me explain. I'm merely

Personally, though, Riddler is too similar to Joker IMO. Now before people go ballistic about the stark differences between the two, hold off and let me explain. I'm merely talking broad strokes, meaning just the sort of playful nature of the character, his game-like manipulation of his environment, etc. Yeah, yeah, that's the point of villains, to toy with Batman and whatnot, but I feel like the Joker had a lot of the scheming, brilliant mastermind complex that makes Riddler who he is.

I think it's a dangerous choice and these filmmakers should stray as far from this as possible. Inevitably, the Nolan/Goyer crew is battling the threequel curse, made even more of a mountain to scale because of The Dark Knight's critical and financial success. They could easily be accused of rehashing on what many believe made them all their money -- the Joker/Heath Ledger's chilling performance. Unless they can put a unique twist on the story with absolutely bare minimum similarities to The Dark Knight, I truly believe the Riddler is a risky move.

Agree completely with you. The Joker and the Riddler are just too similar to work in Nolan-Gotham. Unless they made the Riddler like a computer hacker that screws with Gotham and manages to figure out who Batman is, I can't see how he fits into the universe. I think the best option would be a proper Bane character that would hunt the "fugitive" Batman down.

I disagree that they are similar. In the animated series and in the comics they aren't very similar at all. In the 60's show and the Burton/Schumacher films they do seem very similar in their playful manner, but they also made Two-Face like the Joker as well.

I just think, from a very basic view of character traits, that they rolled a lot of the Riddler into Joker. Not to say the Joker hasn't been his own crazy genius villain, but I'm having trouble seeing how they could be different ENOUGH with Riddler from how DK portrayed Joker. Smart, calculating, plays games.. Again, just my view.

Now the hacker thing is interesting. That's just the kind of differentiation I was thinking about.

However, I'd rather see the mobs pick up their sticks

Now the hacker thing is interesting. That's just the kind of differentiation I was thinking about.

However, I'd rather see the mobs pick up their sticks post-Joker and go to war. Have Penguin come up as a crooked politician or something who's manipulating the rival families. Throw in Catwoman as a love interest and rival for Batman, taking advantage of Gotham in its anarchic state, perhaps a double/triple-dealer to the end. Yeah, it's similar to Burton's mix, but throw in all the mob stuff and Batman's on-the-run status and I think you'll get a new cocktail.

I had this idea way back of Black Mask rising in rank within a mob group, perhaps the go-to/right hand of Penguin. Meanwhile, you got Riddler (yeah, I said no Riddler.. shoot me) slithering around the city, robbing up places and instigating Batman in order to get HIM caught. Then a later twist, Black Mask IS Riddler -- or at least Riddler has assumed the role secretly to get close with Penguin. Convoluted, yes, but hey, I'm not the writer on this.

I would love to see someone like Joseph Gordon-Levitt play the Riddler, but without a script or even an outline to know if the character is even there or what he'll be like, I'm not gonna judge.

It's possible Robin Williams will finally take part in a Batman film

Apparently he was up for The Joker in Burton's film, then in the running for The Riddler until Schumacer cast Jim Carey.
Nolan seems to like working with actors he's already used, like he did with Williams in Insomnia.
Could be interesting and perhaps he'll play it unlike people expect.

I love when people are so wrong, like yourself. Cigarette Burn is right. Williams can totally turn the creep-o-meter to high. Although not my choice for the Riddler, He has an amazing dark side.

I e-mailed this to Mike Sampson over the weekend, but I guess he didn't think it was worth putting up. I, on the other hand, think it's very interesting and would like to hear what others think. So I'm pasting it here:

Williams, who starred in Nolan's 2002 release INSOMNIA, said: "I would do Batman in a second, playing anyone, I'd play The Riddler in the next one, although it would be hard to top Heath as the villain and I'm a little hairy for tights... The Batman films have screwed me twice before: years ago they offered me The Joker and then gave it to Jack Nicholson, then they offered me The Riddler and gave it to Jim Carrey. I'd be like, 'Okay, is this a real offer? If it is, then the answer's yes. Don't pump me again motherfuckers!'"

I remember after Dark Knight had came and passed thinking of how long it would be until we saw or if we would even see Batman 3 with Nolan on board. Well, its less that 2 years away now :)

You d'man. It takes a long time to load a video. It would have been better if the article contained info and not just a link. Thanks again.
