Seriously this bad,

Eddie as the Riddler
Shia Lebouf as Robin
Rachel Weisz as Catwoman

The last two are not bad but Eddie Murphy save me now.

Dont Ruin Batman. Dark Knight was amazing seriosusly it was nearest to perfection you could get. ;)

erm ok, who says Riddler has to be a white guy?
who says Eddie Murphy is not allowed to try something new?

i hate how easily actors are stereotyped :(

people say William Shatner is nothing more than Jim Kirk, funny how Denny Crane got him Golden Globes and Emmy victories.

point is, judging an actor by their previous work is unfair :D

There has been A LOT of rumor running about about Batman 3. I wouldn't believe anything at this point, especially since it really hasn't been long since TDK was released. I'm okay with the three speculated actors though. I'd like to have them in the next film.

Yeah but did you see Halle Berry as catwoman? Pigs have less ham than she had in that role.

I knew this was false: I'm pretty sure I heard a story that Christopher Nolan said he would never use Robin in any of his films. I'm so glad this has been dis-proven!

Not alone, just in the minority. There are plenty of people who liked the film and Halle in it, but quite a few who didn't. Unfortunately I'm one of them! I thought she practically chewed the set. Plus, they were fighting over face cream. Not the safety of the world or some mystical power, but face cream. It jst wasn't believeable to me, but I'm glad you liked it! :)

The title is referring to what is widely regarded as the "new" batman films. From Batman Begins the Batman films were re-vamped, and the continuity from the previous films was broken. It's widely considered that Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and what is being loosely called "Batman 3" is part of this revamp. Even though it's *technically* the 7th film, it's still correct to call this one Batman 3. It's how it's being referred to in the media until an official title is released. :)

Oh and just to agree with everyone here, Shia La Beef = FAIL.

Shai's acting skills are questionable. Whenever Hollywood needs a "young star" they get Shai to be in the role, as if there aren't 3,000 other actors in Hollywood trying to make a living. He isn't grown up enough to be Robin, he wouldn't be convincing as a Hero.

They better not add Robin into the series. I don't care for him and it makes Batman seem idk weaker, but I guess someone has to take over. Still I don't care for robin.

Christian Bale's Batman still has issues to work through before he can THINK about getting a protoge. Although if that Protoge were Batgirl (more like Cassandra than Barbara) it could work.

There's been a SEVERE lack of estrogen in this new "batman" series. Katie Holmes and Maggie Gyllenhall? come on, were they going to "C-list" actresses?

It's still #7 in the series and it's the 7th film it don't matter of the continuity it's just like called TRU TR2 when it's TR8 so it's #7 in the series the continuities don't matter.

As the resident Bat-fan, let me put my foot down. There is a lot of rubbish flying about in terms of casting of Batman 3. As far as I'm concerned, nothing has been confirmed since Heath Ledger's death as he was obviously to appear in the third film. Christopher Nolan has also conclusively stated that as long as he's the director, there won't be a Robin. The Sun is not the most reliable news source on the planet. I've heard that everyone from Megan Fox to Cher (!?) was to play Catwoman. Personally, I would love if the Riddler were dark, mysterious and very very serious, stark contrast to Jim Carrey. Sort of an introverted narcissist who enjoys the irony of being just that. Serious character actors with some mainstream experience such as Edward Norton or Giovanni Ribisi would be terrific. I'd be very happy were Johnny Depp to be cast as the Riddler. As for Catwoman, I'd like a little-known actress to be cast so as not to have fame overshadow the role. I can very much see Leslie Bibbs (Christine Everhart in Iron Man) as Catwoman. Of course, Michelle Pfeiffer is still tops in everybody's books, though I'd love to see a sultry dark-haired beauty as Selia Kyle. Olga Kurylenko, anyone?

Six films about the Batman character have been made. This however is not the seventh in the series since "Batman Begins" was considered a restart of the series. It was done so to distance the franchise from the 80's versions that were destroyed by Joel Shumacher. So while technically it is the seventh film we are discussing, in terms of the current incarnation of the film franchise, this is number three.

As soon as I heard this "confirmed" info, I knew it was false instantly. Eddie Murphy is a great actor who sadly subjects himself to kiddie family movies, has anyone here seen "An interview with a vampire?" :)

The one person I want to see in the next movie is Harley Quinn, even though it would be hard to pull her off without The Joker, should they not include him in the next (recast or deleted scene(s)) she can be perfect for giving us some more psychopathic clown antics :)

there are no deleted scenes from the Dark Knight featuring Heath. All of the scenes he filmed were kept in the movie un-edited, as a memory of him out of respect :)

but yes Harley Quinn should definately be in the next film!! She could've been a huge fan of The Joker's, but upon his incarceration, she went mad with denial and seeks revenge on the Dark Knight :D

I don't think they are inclined to use a villain that is practically "Joker part 2", and personally I think it would look like a cheap trick to take advantage of how popular the Joker was in TDK. But I really believe they'll take the next movie into a completely diferent direction.

18-12-08, 23:09
You honestly think that information is going to surface about a movie that has no script yet, no writers and the director, Christopher Nolan stated that pre-production on the third film will not start until sometime in late 2009, is going to start dropping names of actors and actresses who are supposedly starring in it yet are busy with other roles and their personal lives?

Eddie Murphy is talented still, but he picks the wrong roles to get involved in really. Last time I checked, Johnny Depp is heavily rumored to be the Riddler and due to the fact that rumors having to do with Tim Burton's band of misfits (figure of speech, I love them all), are pretty much always true, I'm betting my money on him as the Riddler. Another heavy rumor is that Angelina Jolie will be playing the Catwoman in the new film and from what you can gather, Christopher Nolan is planning on doing a huge collaboration of Batman villians in the new movie when it's announced so if this film is going to have Two-Face as well as Catwoman, it wouldn't be shocking at all. These films aren't intended to be funny, Nolan is making them darker and darker to show that these criminals are real villians and pshycopaths and bringing on a comedian like Eddie Murphy wouldn't fit in with his vision one bit.

Every single Batman before this new trilogy has brought on comical villians because they stuck to the comic books and these films are different to show real evil and real darkness and making Batman more human. Somehow I don't think it will bring on any comedians really, even Heath Ledger made us laugh and it doesn't take a comedian to pull that off.

I just read that Angelina Jolie is in fact one of Nolan's picks for Catwoman, with Julie Newmar saying, "Angelina would own the part". There is no robin because "Batman is still young" and Eddie Murphy won't be the riddler. The only confirmed villain in the next one is Catwoman:jmp:

"Not even two full weeks after The Dark Knight arrived in theaters, we officially have our first Batman 3 rumor! (Speaking of, we have to decide what to call Nolan's next Batman movie. Dark Knight 2? Batman 3? NolanMan 3? Lets get on that ...) But anyway, the rumor actually comes from another Catwoman: Julie Newmar. Speaking to the New York Daily News, Newmar says, "Angelina would own the part. My industry friends tell me [she] has made inquiries about the role." She went on to add, "I can understand how it would pique her interest. Catwoman is Batman's one true love. She's tremendously popular with women because she's both a heroine and a villainess. When you look at the staggering box office of this current film, which actress wouldn't want to jump in?"

So is Jolie really looking to play Catwoman in a third (and possible final) Batman film from Christopher Nolan? No doubt Bale and Jolie would look good together on screen, and the woman definitely knows how to hold her own when it comes to action"
