Rumors continue to fly that The Riddler will be the main villain in the next Batman movie. Names like Eddie Murphy, Johnny Depp, and even Larry David have been mentioned for the role, but the latest name is Dane Cook, who told MTV that he'd be interested in playing the role.

"If they brought back The Riddler — a new Riddler the way they did with The Joker — that would be badass. I would do that."

"When they were making the new one and they were doing The Joker, I always thought it [should be] kind of like The Crow — having that dark element but still comedic. It would probably have to be something in that vein, even though I think what Heath Ledger did with the Joker was the greatest comic book villain ever."​
Had to post this because I know we have some huge Batman fans here and some real haters of Dane Cook.

What would be your thoughts if Cook played Riddler in the next upcoming Batman(if they make one)

I think it would be pretty cool. Dane Cook is a pretty decent actor and I love his style of comedy. I'd love to see them let him have a go at it. If he completely screws it up and makes the movie horrible, then I guess they'll know for the next batman movie after that, not to cast him.

I can in no way take Dane Cook seriously as an actor. He is a great comedian, but his acting is meh. However, I believe he could play the role, the problem would be that the role would have to be downplayed. He couldn't be a leading villain. Especially if hes trying to follow up heath ledgers role. The Dark Knight WILL be hard to top, and the villain will be a key part in that, and if they pick the wrong actor, their ass is fucked.

I actually think it would be an awesome idea, he's funny and even though he hasn't have a lot of serious roles. I think he could pull it off, either him or Ryan Renolds.

I don't know enough about his acting to really say :dunno:. But being a good comedian is nowhere close to enough.

*facepalm*

(I kills Smelnick)

You don't take random gambles with huge blockbuster franchises where the cost to make the film is millions of dollars.

Dane Cook's alright, but Johnny Depp should play the riddler, he'd be the most perfect actor to ever live for that role.

I agree with you guys I think that Dane Cook would be a terrible selection to portray The Riddler and I believe a lot of people would not go see the movie just because of that. Depp is the obvious choice for this role, but you never know he might decline it. It's not like he needs the money or anything.
