Pretty much exactly what we’ve been saying for the past couple of weeks, lots of chatter today quoting the same “unnamed sources” (Julie Newmar again?):
UK, August 1, 2008 – Speculation on the villains for the next Batman film is coming thick and fast, with the UK’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?”
