    Despite director Christopher Nolan already stating 'The Joker' would not be in his new Batman film, rumors flooded the internet yesterday that he would be. Warner Bros. shot down those rumors again yesterday. Firstly, yes, the original plan was to have The Joker play a small part in the third “Batman” movie. He would’ve been in a prison, and much like Clarice Starling and Hannibal Lecter, would’ve played an unlikely aide to his arch-nemesis Batman, who’d be on a mission to to sto...

    Christopher Nolan has finally released some details on his next Batman chapter. The film will be called The Dark Knight Rises, and he also revealed the villain would not be 'The Riddler.' It comes somewhat as a surprise when you consider the rumors swirling around the character being played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt have been going on for a while now. But this won't be the case. Nolan was most eager to talk about the fact that Warner Bros. had agreed with his argument that the film should re...

    The first piece of solid casting news for Batman 3 comes from Deadline who reports that Tom Hardy has been cast in the film. Hardy starred in Christopher Nolan's Inception so the ties are there to the director. No info on what role Hardy will be playing or even if it will be a potential villain but it is being described as a "lead role". Lately we've learned that Killer Croc could be one of the villains in the film and The Riddler is still heavily rumored to be another....

    The rumors continue as to potential villains that could be involved in the upcoming final film in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. The latest involves a character that would be less familiar to audiences who haven't followed the comics (or played the Arkham Asylum video game from last year) and has yet to be touched upon in any Batman films. Killer Croc began in the comics as a powerful man covered in green scales due to a skin condition, which would mesh more with Nolan's grounded take ...

    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 i...

    Since the release of The Dark Knight nearly two years ago, there has been plenty of speculation and rumors concerning the villains for the next 'Batman' film. What happens with 'The Joker' after The Dark Knight ends is left open and nobody is really sure. We know he doesn't die, so we were left to believe he'd make an appearance in the third film. The speculation can now stop since Christopher Nolan has told Empire Magazine that he will not be in the next 'Batman'. Obsessedwithfilm.com has th...
