It’s no secret that with Inception out, we’re wondering what Nolan will bring for the sequel to “The Dark Knight,” what the story is and of course who the villain will be. Of course we already know that the Joker will not be returning (which I think is for the best) and Harvey Dent is already dead (as confirmed by Nolan himself).
According to ScreenRant casting grid was leaked online today which gave information that the villain might be The Riddler and that Joseph Gordon-Levitt (from Nolan’s Inception) is labeled “interested” in the role. Now with Comic Con coming up, it may be possible that a little announcement could be made there.
I like the idea of Gordon-Levitt playing the Riddler. I thought his performance in Inception was incredible (even though Tom Hardy was my favorite character), and he’s obviously the best idea for the show. That being said, I don’t think The Riddler will be the only villain present. There have been rumors about Catwoman being present as well. If that’s the case, well, maybe they could get Scarlett Johansson to fill those tight…OK I’m gonna stop right there.
