More Batman Villain Buzz
Yet, another Batman casting rumor.
Speculation on the villains for the next Batman film is coming thick and fast, with the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph throwing two new stars into the mix.
The paper, quoting “unnamed sources,” says that Warner Bros. have targeted Johnny Depp to play The Riddler, and Philip Seymour Hoffman to take the role of The Penguin.
According to their source: “Producers are convinced that the role of The Riddler is perfect for Depp. Johnny’s a pro. He’ll be able to take direction and still make the character his own. And what better Penguin is there than Philip Seymour Hoffman?”
This comes off the back of the rumour we heard earlier this week that Angelina Jolie is interested it the role of Catwoman.
Bat-fans will remember that Jim Carey was the last actor to have a crack at playing the Riddler in Batman Forever, whilst Danny De Vito portrayed the villainous penguin in Batman Returns.
