Cool? Seriously?

I'm not sure what could possibly ruin the run Batman is currently having, but I suspect that adding Robin Williams to the mix might just be it.

I don't know. He can do dark pretty well. Cases in point:

And he's already been in a Christopher Nolan flick:

/still don't want to see him in a Nolan Batman movie, though

As someone who takes great enjoyment from internet rage, I think they should go ahead and do this, and release it on the same day as "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil", starring Dane Cook.

I wanna be Batman in the next movie. Can I get a press release too?

Yes you can, and you don't even have to pay for a proper publicist to write one for you, just contact the paper the newspaper you want to carry it and hand them a check with your announcement, preferably written in crayon.

I also recommend making a youtube video showing off your awesome karate and parkour skills

I think he'd make a great Penguin, but not a Joker.

Philip Seymour Hoffman, man.

THAT'S who I want to see as the Penguin.

The next movie will not include the Joker.

Exactly!

I would love to see him do this.

An interesting choice, but Nolan already said that villains like the Penguin don't fit into his Batman universe.

Stunt casting is not the answer.

At least until Nolan quits in disgust, Justin Bieber is cast as Robin, Nicholas Sparks writes the script (hint: everyone dies of cancer) and Joel Schumacher gets a weekend pass from the fiery pit of hell to direct.

In what sense? I mean you basically have a short, ugly, villainous, underworld version of Bruce Wayne who just happens to have an affinity for birds and umbrellas.

I would envision him differently. Some kind of gentleman businessman/crook who launders money through an Antarctic-themed nightclub. Maybe give him one umbrella that fires a bullet, nothing fancy.

Hey, personally I think there's a way that he could do it. But I see his point. Maybe not on the Penguin. But Calendar Man?

I for one am glad they didn't go with the whole "ra's al ghul is immortal."

That's the point, right there. He's taking as realistic an interpretation on the subject material as the subject material itself will allow. These movies peel back the myth of the characters to get at the characters that inspire the myth.

The Riddler isn't some prancing ninny in tights who laughs at his own cleverness. He's smug and reserved. He's one of those "I'm not impressed" types.

I don't know as pointed out before with "One Hour Photo", he can definitely turn up the creepy silent destroyer vibe.

so, by extension, we will not see the Green Arrow in a Nolan Batflick either?

This. He's a deranged sociopath (as are they all), and he gets his ego off on knowing that he has outsmarted you. Cast out what you remember of Carrey's performance-- and that from the old television show.

Williams would be a fine fit. I don't see the Riddler being the villain in the third movie, though.
 
2010-06-29 03:58:20 PM  
I say give Jim Carrey another shot at it. You know, to get it right. (And in the next reboot series too, when this one goes in the shiatter.)

Yes please.
His character in MI:3 was the only one worth watching
 
2010-06-29 04:01:29 PM  
I thought Eddie Murphy was playing this part?

At least that's what one of the last 20 or so internet rumors about the next Batman flick said...

/really?
//we're doing this shiat again?
 
2010-06-29 04:02:37 PM  
My Pick for The Riddler:

He could play the perfect Obsessive Compulsive Narcissist with a puzzle fetish.
 
2010-06-29 04:04:10 PM  
Man that guy really likes One Hour Photo. That movie sucked.
 
2010-06-29 04:05:00 PM  
He's proven himself as an actor so I'm sure he could play the role, but I'm not sure he could overcome the whole "Hey look! It's Robin Williams!" effect. One of the reasons Heath Ledger's Joker works so well is that, even when you know who the actor is, he has the ability to disappear behind the character - I'm not so sure Robin Williams could do the same.

Isn't that a self-perpetuating cycle?

1. Wait till third film, cast Jim Carrey
2. Series goes to shiat
3. Reboot and repeat
 
2010-06-29 04:09:04 PM  
He has heart issues and he's fifty-seven years old. Don't think he'd be right for the part.
 
2010-06-29 04:09:15 PM  
The most important point:

Shostie: he's already been in a Christopher Nolan flick

If Nolan likes the guy, the fanboys are just gonna have to deal. he can cast who he wants at this point.
 
2010-06-29 04:10:43 PM  
Robin Williams would be a perfect Hugo Strange.

shostie: I don't know. He can do dark pretty well. Cases in point:
================================================

He can ONLY do dark well. His only comedy that's even DECENT is Mrs Doubtfire and it's a pretty serious movie in its own right.

He was not good in Insomnia mostly because Nolan basically pussified his character (and the movie)... well, the writer did. Nolan didn't write it. Only movie he didn't write and it showed. Big time.

The riddler in Batman will be almost like the joker except instead of morality battles it'll be sadistic riddles and jokes. Robin Williams would be great for the part, but it won't happen.

Nolan, like he ALWAYS does, will go young.
 
2010-06-29 04:14:50 PM  
Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the Riddler. We're going young/talented with these castings. Make him a stoner, too. Why not?
 
2010-06-29 04:15:11 PM  
How about Jack Black as the Riddler?

/runs
 
2010-06-29 04:16:43 PM  
I thought he should have been the Riddler the first time around. Jim Carey was poor casting, sure he was a big star but he is just not a credible villan.


/of course that Batman movie had some many poor decisions piled up whats one more?
 
2010-06-29 04:17:12 PM  
He can do creepy though..

They are movies about a guy in a cape who fights bad guys named "Two Face" and "The Joker". Lets keep the film school masturbation out of it.

I'm counting how many of you are for or against this, I'll use this to form an opinion.

Yup. It's the only Nolan film I was meh about.
