Three Inception stars up for The Riddler

At this point, we pretty much know that The Riddler will be the main villain the third Christopher Nolan-directed “Batman” installment. According to several reliable sources, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception) is in talks to play the character.

Now, CBM says that Nolan is actually considering three “Inception” actors for the role, including joseph Gordon-Levitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy. DiCaprio has already expressed interest in starring in a superhero movie and Hardy is on his way to become a well-known actor, so he would probably jump at the chance to be The Riddler.

Personally i don’t like the idea of DiCaprio as The Riddler, it just doesn’t sit right with me! but the other 2 would be excellent choices! especially Tom Hardy, he’s on of my favourite actors so i would be over the moon to see him cast as The Riddler!

Obviously this is all rumour or speculation but i think it’s very likely one of these three will get the role!

    I do love Joe as an actor, and his indie flicks have been brilliant (anyone seen Brick?), but it would be great if they could play The Riddler as English. We haven’t had an Enlgish villain in a while. 🙂

      Yes I own Brick its fantastic. Joseph’s been a favourite of mine for a long time I can’t see anyone else playing Riddler now I’ve got the thought of him in my head! lol x
