Johnny Depp to be Riddler? "Fun Gig!" he responds [news]
Following the success of DARK KNIGHT, a feverish run of rumors ran boiling in the news vines of movie news; speculations on who would be the next featured villain would appear on the next Batman movie and who the actors/actresses would be chosen for the role/s.
One of the rumors is that the next villain would be The Riddler, and along with that rumor is the idea that Johnny Depp would be the "best" choice to play the cryptic villain. In a recent interview on a radio show, Johnny Depp may have stated that nobody has officially approached him yet for that role BUT he did express that it would be a "fun gig for a while" Click HERE for the full news story.
In my opinion, MY "best" choice for The Riddler would be Ethan Hawke. Just think of all the roles he's had where he plays intellectual-type characters, add it up with his wild look in the first scene of "assault on Precinct 13"... I believe all this would add up for a great Riddler.
