Riddler The Likely Villain in Batman 3

Posted July 21st, 2010 at 6:30 am

Some new information has slipped out providing insight into the next Batman. Now that Christopher Nolan’s Inception has released and is out of the way we should start hearing even more about the project. Though it was rumored a while back, it does now appear certain that The Riddler will be the primary villain in the film.

Firstshowing.net has a source that has seen the casting grid which lists The Riddler as a part. While that would seem to confirm The Ridder as the villain, what remains in question is who will play him. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, fresh off Inception, is listed beside The Ridder with “interested”. This does not mean he has been cast in the role, just that he would be one of the names they are looking at and mutual interest would seem to exist.
