At this point its only a rumor but Christopher Nolan is interested in Levitt playing the Riddler in the new dark knight movie. Even Levitt is saying he would be very interested in playing the role.

I'd honestly love him in it, but I'd much rather see DiCaprio- who is a stronger shot- in the film. JGL is an astoundingly-talented actor (and granted, he was the only good- and most hilarious- part of the G.I. Joe movie), but I have for a long time wanted to see DiCaprio in something other than a leading role; and in something other than a reluctant hero role. The man is a fantastic actor, and in his glimpses of evil-natured persona (The Departed, the second half of The Aviator, most of Blood Diamond) I think we see the most of his acting genius and capability. And so I think he'd be the best possible pick as it stands.

Among several reasons, I think he's one of the greatest foils to Christian Bale- even career-wise- I can think of. Both strong child and teen actors, both take similar roles, both have similar ranges, and both had breakout performance multiple times at multiple ages.

As DiCaprio's desire to do a superhero film has been the subject of gossip for many years, and as he was extremely agreeable to Christopher Nolan in Inception- I think he'd have an easy time getting the role should he want it.

Although yeah, it's be great to see JGL get the role. I don't exactly picture him in it- and I'd really rather see him as a strong lead in some other movie- but it'd be a nice thing for him to get.

I'd also really like to see Hugh Jackman in it, as I think he plays fantastically off of Christian Bale and starred in considerably Nolan's best work. But that obviously will never happen due to his prevalence in the public sphere as Wolverine. And, obviously, rumors and desires could go on all day with all of us; so there's little reason to voice them all so wishingly.

JGL would be awesome. But yeah, I'd rather see him in something smaller and starring. DiCaprio would be my immediate 'pick-that-would-have-a-shot-at-it-that-isn't-completely-unfounded'.

My all-time pick would be Paul Bettany, though. For reasons needed no more than: It's Paul Bettany.

Also some more kinda crazy things to think about: Although he has always seemed massively younger to me than Heath Ledger- JGL is the same age Heath was when he played the Joker, and the two actors (Ledger and JGL) both got their big breakout roles in movies as the two leads (and friends) who reluctantly work together in 10 Things I Hate About You. I always found that kinda cool, since they both ended up being such similar and strong actors who started off as such polar opposites in that film.

Also to many people they bare a very striking and strong resemblance to eacother, ala:



Which isn't something I think matters at all, just some kinda interest-piquing thoughts.

If they ever decided to replace Ledger as the Joker (which I think they should NEVER do).. Joseph Gordon Levitt would be the perfect replacement, IMO.

My absolute favorite would be Johnny Depp as The Riddler. But Levitt or DiCaprio would be great choices as well.

I think Depp as the Riddler wouldn't work. For the Riddler to work well in the realistic Nolan-verse while also distinguishing himself from the Joker, I think he'd have to be some sort of Se7en-esque psychopath, in a much creepier and darker way than the Joker was. Depp is too silly of an actor for such a serious role.

Spoken like someone who is not familiar with his work outside of Burton and Pirates films...

I'm not really sure what to think of the Riddler for the next villain. Just seems a little like the obvious choice, so if they decide to go for it, I'd prefer them not to use the obvious choice for casting (JGL).

Atom is sounding more and more like Staff Only these days...

What. The. Hell. Are. You. Talking. About?

unsure

But otherwise, while it would be interesting to see Depp, JGL, or DiCaprio as the joker, there's really only one person who could take on Ledgers performance from the Dark Knight. Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you, Robin Williams. That's right, Robin Williams.

Other possible choices would be Neil Patrick Harris (though I doubt he'd fit the role), Alan Tudyk, Tim Roth, Jim Carrey reprising the role and those listed above.

Depp is pretty silly in Edward Scissor Hands. But yeah, I know what you're getting at.


NPH would be meh, I dunno maybe he could do it; I don't think Tudyk could pull it off, and Jim Carrey is either fairly silly or a serious protagonist. His Riddler performance wasn't chilling, and I don't think it could come off chilling because of that. They just wouldn't recast him a Batman film. I think a young serious actor like Ledger (JGL, DiCaprio) would do a better job than Williams, or even Depp. Those are my thoughts.

Given that the Riddler's riddles are made up of rhymes, why not go with something artistic like ooooooh I don't know.... Ice Cube?

I've seen all of those (some of which multiple times), Thrawn, and I stand by what I said, although "silly" might not have been the best choice of vocabulary. What I mean is that while Depp is a great actor whose performances I almost always really enjoy, I can't see him properly pulling off a serious psycopath killer in a way that doesn't appear overly theatrical in the context of the Nolanverse. I could be wrong, though.

I really hope they get Vin Diesel to play the villain.

He'd be perfect. He's a great actor.

But I think that's why they would both be fantastic choices. They're older villians. I think that the movie will benefit from an older criminal, such as Liam Neesons character in Batman Begins. Of course, Neesons character doesn't really count as a villian.

I think one of the few ways this movie could fail is by trying to replicate the success of the Dark Knight... By replicating the film itself. Yes, the Joker was a success, partly due to an amazing performance by Ledger, but also because of how original and unique the character was as opposed to Jokers of the past. I think if Nolan casts an "up and coming" young actor like he did Ledger, that they're performance will be overshadows by Ledger's, and also be very similar. So, unless he goes with a more unique villian (catwoman comes to mind) Nolan would be best off getting a veteran actor to try something new. Robin Williams was born for this role. Nolan has also said that Williams was the most skilled actor he's worked with, so the poasibility is always there.

EDIT: The exact quote from the interview..

Nolan considers Robin Williams’ work in Insomnia “flawless.” “I wound up watching the film a hundred times as we cut it, as we nailed it down, and I never hit that point in the performances where you see the acting.”

First off, my 'old actor for the Riddler' endorsement: Christopher Walken, playing Christopher Walken- playing how Christopher Walken talks. (Which is in riddles anyway) And looking inquisitively. It'd be half hilarious, half unhinged geniusness. wink

Okay, now that that's outta the way, here we go: Lest we also not forget that Robin Williams was the original casting choice of both Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher before Carrey was cast. (who did a fantastic job in the scope of the feel of Batman Forever, too. I loved it as a kid.)

And now as I think of it, Thrawn's right. It'd make much more sense to go the older (or younger than young) route and get someone like Robin Williams to play off of Bale.

Ledger was like an opposite spectrum of the same age sort of character, DiCaprio would be a fantastic parallel/foil of him. But the way for the film to be the most captivating, I would agree, would be to stay away from that.

Robin Williams was desired for the role before, he's helmed a Nolan movie before, and he's got the chilling tenacity and experience to play the role. Watch him in One Hour Photo- that's creepy stalker OCD man for the Riddler right there. Watch Good Will Hunting- that's genius disguising itself like the Riddler there.

For an older villain, and it being the Riddler- Robin Williams does indeed make sense. And Nolan's gotta huge affinnity for continually recasting actors he likes. Even Michael Caine was in Inception for a minute or two, after all. smile

Danny Huston would be terrific for the older route, too, but he's oversaturated himself lately and probably couldn't be picked.

Actually, that would be really cool. He could definitely pull off a darker, more serious Riddler.

While I'm a big fan of Jim Carrey's acting (not the actual person, though), I've never seen him pull off serious comedy before. He's either a fantastic serious actor or a hilarious goofy one. Could be interesting seeing him attempt a hybrid of the two. Though I don't think he's the ideal Riddler at all.

After seeing Law Abiding Citizen I thought about what Gerard Butler could do as The Riddler. The two are kind of similar roles: they're both psychopaths. As time has gone on however my opinion has started to waver. I think Liam Neeson would make a decent Riddler, but alas...

Would I would really like is a villain that not hasn't been featured in any Batman movies to date, like Dr. Hugo Strange. Strange would fit the whole "Bruce Wayne is Batman" thing they had going on the TDK, because in the comics and cartoons, Hugo Strange's obsession IS outing Wayne as Batman. Problem is the majority of moviegoers wouldn't know who he is and the reception would suffer because of it.

Actually I like the idea of Hugo Strange for a villain... Too bad as you said, most people don't know who he is so it would suffer for that. Personally I want to see a live action movie adaptation of clayface. Not sure what they would do to make him fit into Nolan's universe as everything is actually realistic and a man blob thing doesn't really seem realistic... But oh well...

Cos if you don't remember, Nolan's been reworking all of the Batman mythos away from the cheesy 60s action comic stuff towards stuff that is a lot more plausible. Scarecrow just being a guy with a gas neurotoxin, for instance, or the Joker just being some guy with peculiar scars.

The elements that aren't realistic (neurotoxin, cell phone vision, etc.) are at least plausible in a Sci-Fi sort of way. Clayface as a shapeshifting guy made from mud makes no sense and is near impossible to justify in a way that's somewhat plausible. Other than not actually making him out of clay, I mean.

In our very own Batman sequel, Pooky, we had a plausible scenario: A hyper-allergenic muscular dude with a horrible congenital skin defect. And that was just us and some haphazard spray-paint-and-foam-insulation-on-a-jumpsuit getup. And we thought it turned out decent just with that.

Think of what Nolan could do with it.

How's that an interesting character at all, though? smile The guy doesn't have any particularly interesting character traits, so getting rid of the mud thing makes him pretty dull. The Riddler, Black Mask, The Ventriloquist and so on are good fits for the Nolanverse precisely because their psychological quirks define them more than their appearance

Maybe Clayface could be a villain who doesn't actually shapeshift, but is really proficient at changing disguises and blending in with his environment. Maybe his personality could reflect that: maybe he could be a character who changes his mood on the spur of the moment or something like that.

That's actually a really intellegent and highy Nolan-like possibility. I could see that happening over a clayface with a skin disorder. It'd make for an interesting character, and it would shy away from the joker image. Interesting...

That's basically what they did with Zartan in the new GI Joe movie. Except at one point he actually did go in operation to become someone else.

I'm just trowing this out there:

Andy Serkis as the villain.

Tell me that isn't brilliant. The guy is awesome. He could make an interesting Riddler and he knows Nolan. It would be a gamble, but it might really pay off. I would also have liked Marion Cotillard as Quinn, but I doubt Nolan would use the same actress for a (SPOILER INCEPTION) villain in two movies right after each other.

I wish he'd be cast for the character Spike Speigel in the Cowboy Bepop adaptation instead of Keanu (so whack). Levitt would be ideal for that role.

Hollywood is 0 for 2 with anime adaptations (Dragon Ball & Airbender). When Bebop comes out they will have ruined another one of the greatest animes ever created. Bebop is brilliant.

+1 for the movie reference.

Andy Serkis seems like a really good idea to me, as long as the Riddler doesn't behave too much like Gollum. If he did, it would seem kind of derivative. But he seems quirky enough to play the part.

If you're looking for ransom, i can tell you i don't have money but what i DO have are a very particular set of skills. Skills that i have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you...
Lol, Rock on for Taken!
Agreed. If I ever go missing I want my friends and family to pool their money and hire Liam Neeson to come find me.

Has anyone thought to mention Guy Pierce? I think he'd play a great Riddler.

That three-way battle is such rubbish. It's simply the gossip columns going "oh look, all three of them were in Inception! Inception is a really popular film, as is Batman! Let's write stuff and link them all together without any evidence at all so that people come and read our magazine!"

Personally I'd love to see Hardy in the role, because he scares the crap out of me. In a good way.
