    Link: Who`s Going to Be the Next Riddler? - If this guy can pull it off, he might officially be the greatest actor of all time. But is there a better choice?

    I definitely think he could pull it off.

    ...Then again, I think I`d watch any movie Johnny Depp was in. >_>;

    And Hoffman would be a GREAT penguin.

    I think Depp will make an excellent Riddler. Especially with the new spin on the Batman series.

    I just made a happy wee wee!

    I`m a huge Batfan...sue me!...but i think this is grade a BS! When Nolan confirms it, I`ll belive it!

    ...anyway..nolan is bound to go with a female in the nest installment (if he does it)....so..I wont take this as the truth!

    I dunno, Depp is a fantastic actor, but if I saw him playing the Riddler, I would be thinking "Thats Johnny Depp right there" the whole way through the show

    but I agree with opie, Hoffman would make an excellent Penguin

    Apparently, Hoffman denies the report. He said he never spoke with Nolan and him playing the Penguin was a rumor circulating 5 years ago. He also stated he will never star in a superhero movie

    So either Hoffman is covering up for the Caine leak, or Caine was having some fun with the press.

    Johnny Depp would be terrible as The Riddler. He would be playing the same character he always plays, only wearing a different costume.
    Hoffman, however, would make a pretty decent penguin.

    Way to go to that link for not putting up the whole interview and the rest of the story. Depp has said he hasn`t been contacted and said the role could be interesting. I also believe it said Hoffman said he hadn`t been contacted and thought there were better actors?

    ^^ you don`t know what you`re talking about. All of his roles have been pretty different from one another.

    gah i hope the riddlers not in it. I love the new take on batman but i think the riddler would just be booooring. Probably wouldnt be all dressed in green with his question marks or anything. And what a terrible badguy he is anyways. giving clues to his plan and hideout to batman who has been described in the comic universe as the "worlds greatest detective". boo-urns. throw in someone like Bane. or king tut!...wait no, scratch the last one... he was terrible.

    I think that having The Penguin as a villain in a Batman movie would be awesome...

    I mean, who wouldn`t want to see a guy dress up like a penguin and fly around with an umbrella?

    after seeing how good a job heath ledger did as joker, when most people didnt think he would, i think depp can pull it off.

    and dear god no penguin in these movies. these batman movies are way better than the older ones and putting a lame villain like the penguin would be a horrible choice

    Urgh, please no Penguin!

    Seeing as these newer batman movies have more grimly realistic baddies, I don`t think Penguin would fit in. They could get away with the villains who look normal by day - Riddler, Catwoman etc.

    I think Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy would be good!

    Phillip Seymore Hoffman came out a few days ago and stated he`s never been approached for the role of The Penguin. And with all the stupid rumors that were flying around when The Dark Knight came out, I won`t believe anything until there`s pictures of video of anything.

    No, Johnny Depp should not be the Riddler. Where`s the creativity, the subtlety in casting? Not many people thought Ledger could pull off the Joker, yet he came back with the best performance ever for that character (at least in my view). You know who should be the Riddler? This guy. Get a clue, people. Depp`s a phenomenal actor, but he`s probably not the most imaginative choice.

    As for Penguin... eh... I don`t really see how he would fit in Nolan`s hyperrealism, although Hoffman would be ideal.

    Oh wow great call, it had never even occurred to me, he was superb in the latest Terry Prachett TVM. Wonder who he could best play though?

    I reckon they should create a new charcter. They could call him "The Village Idiot". GW will soon be available to play the role. I can imagine the story line now: The Village Idiot threatens Gotham with a nucular weapon....

    hmmm well they better give the penguin a drating hard ass make over cuz that is one lame ass villain... I thought they should use a young guy and give him a freaking black and white mowhawk or something.. go got punk on the bitch not use hoffman... *shudder*

    and as for depp.. he just... doesnt look the part to me... and all they will do is basically use the jack sparrow persona but give him a makeover anwyas.... oh well TDK will just have to live on as the best freaking batman movie of all time.. because there is no way they are gonna be able to top heath with depp and hoffman.. not a snowballs chance in hell

    Matthew Lesko should The Riddler. He`s perfect for the role. XD
