Movies Dark Knight sequel - teaser poster on IMDB

:O

That's a pretty awesome poster. Maybe they'll have a darker Riddler like they did the the Joker.

I kind of have to wonder about this though. There was a really awesome "fan made" poster circulating the net a while back that was also titled "The Dark Knight Returns".



Coincidence? All part of the plan?...



Regardless, if this is true then I'm going to be sorely disappointed if Johnny Depp doesn't play the Riddler. I can't think of anybody else who could pull off following Ledger's Joker without a hitch.

Between having the same title/working title, and having the same year attached, I'd guess it's not fan made.

There's probably another actor or two who could do it (but don't ask me to tell you who they are... :lol:)

Leonardo DiCaprio comes to mind. He's one other I think could do a great Riddler. He'd also be less expected than Depp so it could be a nice twist on people's expectations.

Yeah, he'd probably be good. Although for both of them, since they're so easily recognizable, I'd prefer it if their faces were disguised slightly.

Michael Caine has already stated that Depp is not playing the Riddler.

This is the same Michael Caine who previously said they were looking at Johnny Depp, and now, when he says no Johnny Depp, also says there's nobody, because it's too soon, and now the studio's not telling him anything because he'll blab... :rolleyes: :lol:

(The link has a short vid of the interview) It sounds like he doesn't really know.


I've been thinking about this a bit, and I think Brad Pitt or Robin Williams might be good as the Riddler (yes, I know they're completely different, but I think either could work). Pitt's acting in Fight Club was what made me think of him, and Williams has had lots of rolls that are somewhat similar, plus he's just an amazing actor able to handle a diversity of rolls.

Robin Williams could be great. I don't imagine Brad Pitt as the riddler. I don't think he could pull off the mental part of the role, as all Batman characters do. All of them have pathological issues. The Riddler is egomaniacal. I don't see Pitt as being able to do that. He is too suave, to be able to do it. They'd have to drastically rewrite the character of the Riddler.

Most of Pitt's rolls aren't like the Riddler at all, but I think he pulled off pathological in Fight Club.
