First Showing is reporting that The Riddler will be featured in Chris Nolan’s highly anticipated sequel to “The Dark Knight” and “Inception” star Joseph Gordon-Levitt could play the character. Here’s what the site reports:
We’ve gotten word from a reliable inside source with a studio casting grid that The Riddler is listed as a character for Chris Nolan’s highly anticipated to the sequel to The Dark Knight, which is still called Batman 3 at Warner Bros. Even more interesting, the actor currently listed in the same grid to play the assumed villain is none other than Joseph Gordon-Levitt, whose status is just listed as “interested.” Let’s all say it together now: Hell. Yes!
Even if Levitt isn’t ultimately the choice, all the recent rumors surrounding the film seem to confirm that at the very least The Riddler will be one of — if not the main — villain in Batman 3.
Batman 3 is expected to hit theaters in 2012.
