Film legend and Bruce Wayne’s butler, Michael Cain, is saying that Johnny Depp has been chosen to play The Riddler in the next Batman film. Cain also says Phillip Seymore Hoffman will play The Penguin.
Is this legit, or is the old guy just going senial? Cain then spilled some details,
“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!’” [Laughs]
For all we know, the Warner executive Cain spoke with was really a WB Page? I hope the veterain actor is right though; Depp and hoffman would make great villains!
