Caine confirms Batman 3 villains?
Still no confirmation that Christopher Nolan will be back for Batman 3. But one of the stars, seems to have confirmed that two of the rumoured new villains might actually be happening.
Michael Caine has said that Johnny Depp and Philip Seymour Hoffman, are being considered for The Riddler and The Penguin.
Michael Caine however, has said that the two are being considered for roles in the next Batman film. His source? Another one of those executives. Speaking to MTV through Cinematical, Caine had this to say.
I was with [a Warner Bros.] executive and I said, ‘Are we going to make another one?’ They said yeah. I said, ‘How the hell are we going to top Heath? And he says ‘I’ll tell you how you top Heath — Johnny Depp as The Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman as The Penguin.’ I said, ‘S–t, they’ve done it again!’
It could well be that said executive has been hearing the same rumours as us. Or it could be the closest we've come to some kind of official word. How much longer is Christopher Nolan on holiday for? I can't take much more of this...
