Breaking News: Batman 3 To Suck.

Postby Prof. Wagstaff » Thu Dec 18, 2008 6:24 pm

I can only pray that this is just another example of The Sun being completely full of shit, 'cuz they're reporting that Eddie Murphy will be The Riddler

{shudder}


And if true, especially given the inclusion of another Catwoman, this makes me want to ask: Hey Nolan, could you pick some different villains? Because so far, you're mostly just recycling the same ones from the previous Batman franchise (not to mention the same ones that appeared in the 1966 Batman movie.) Gimme some Deadshot or Clayface or Killer Moth or Hugo Strange or... oh, I dunno... come up with something new, maybe?

Thanks to special effects and make up Eddie Murphy is playing ALL of those parts in the next Batman movie.

Nolan hasn't officially signed for a third movie. WB hasn't made any casting.

This is as false as Rahcel Weisz as Catwoman and Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Penguin.

Your first clue: The Sun, which in the King's English means "A Printed Playground Rumour" The Sun also report Shia Lebeouf as Robin, which is completely wrong since Nolan and Goyer's timeline for the movie mean Robin is only about 5 or 6 years old.

Nolan will be back for a third movie, but only if he feels he can out doe Dark Knight. Which will be very hard, but if anyone can do it, it would be him, David Goyer, and Jonathan Nolan.

Until you read Nolan is back for Batman 3, everything you hear, even from actors is wrong.

They hinted at Catwoman in the Dark Knight, and what about that young guy who tries to bribe Morgan Freeman because he knows about the Batmobile. Does that lead anywhere, and soon?

I think the word you were looking for is "blackmail."

Really? I think Jim Carrey would be much better as The Riddler.

from the LA Times...

“Well … let me think how to put this. There are two things to be said. One is the emphasis on story. What’s the story? Is there a story that’s going to keep me emotionally invested for the couple of years that it will take to make another one? That’s the overriding question. On a more superficial level, I have to ask the question: How many good third movies in a franchise can people name? [Laughs.] At the same time, in taking on the second one, we had the challenge of trying to make a great second movie, and there haven’t been too many of those either. It’s all about the story really. If the story is there, everything is possible. I hope that was a suitably slippery answer.”

“On one hand, yeah, there is a certain feeling to do [something smaller]. After “Batman Begins,” I certainly felt like taking on something smaller, but one of the things I got such a thrill from on “The Dark Knight” was shooting on Imax and creating that massive scale and achieving that larger-than-life quality. So that’s a lot of fun. I’m drawn in both directions now. So maybe what I need to do next is a very intimate, small story that happens to be photographed on a ridiculously large scale. Or vice versa [laughs].”

Wow this movie is going to be chock full of stars. Let's see... we have:

Rachel Weisz as Catwoman
Angelina Jolie also as Catwoman
Cher also as Catwoman
Phillip Seymour Hoffman as the Penguin
Shia Lebouf as Robin
Johnny Depp as the Riddler
Eddie Murphy also as the Riddler

I can't wait to see this movie! Obviously it's going to be very artistic with different actors playing the same role in different scenes ala I'm Not There.

I'd love to see Jim Carrey play Riddler. He'd be much more like Frank Gorshin, who was great!

Jim Carrey did play the Riddler in the Batman Forever movie in 1995. And he was Great!
