05.26.11 - Casting round-up
I'm so pleased to have stumbled across this community, and uber-excited for this film - I wrote a round-up of confirmed Dark Knight Rises casting news the other day. I'll be updating this piece as more snippets are released along the way...

The casting of Tom Hardy in Batman 3 two weeks ago was major news for many reasons. For one, following his performance in Inception, more Tom Hardy is always a good thing. More importantly, however, it means that the gears of pre-production for the next installment in the series are finally in motion and that we will start hearing more and more news about the project as we move towards the filming stage. That process continues now.

Movie Hole is reporting that Christopher Nolan has started meeting with actresses in their "late 20′s, early 30′s" for an undisclosed part in the superhero sequel. From the report, it seems as though Nolan isn't aiming for an A-lister and is instead looking for a fresh face. The site has some names of applicants, but they've requested to remain anonymous until they are certain that they have not gotten the part. The site does estimate that we will have the name of the actress selected in a few weeks.

Just like the Hardy casting, all we can do now is speculate based on what we know about Nolan's Batman films and the history of the Caped Crusader. It's entirely possible that the new actress will fill the role left after the death of Rachel Dawes in The Dark Knight as the new romantic interest, but let's have a little more fun, shall we?

lol Personally, I think all of this is getting blown out of proportions. I mean, they could just be casting a news anchor, right? Haha.

Nothing is official until you sign on the dotted line, which is why Joseph Gordon-Levitt might need to do some serious campaigning for the role of The Riddler in director Christopher Nolan’s next Batman film. Twilight hunk Jackson Rathbone confides that he’d love to play the part – and we think he’d be perfect! (kill me now)

“Are you kidding me? I would do that at the drop of a hat!” the 25-year-old actor told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at Melanie Segal’s T.J. Maxx-sponsored Celebrity Retreat August 5. “I’m not going to take my hat off now,” he joked, “but that would be awesome. That is the kind of role I like. I like character parts.”


I have only one thing to say to you Rathbone: stay the hell away from my Batman movies

It looks like the Batman 3 villain rumors have started up again! The first recent rumor to hit the web was that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was being considered to take on the role of The Riddler in Batman 3. It definitely seems like The Riddler will in fact be the villain of Chistopher Nolan's next installment of Batman, but will Selina Kyle a.k.a. Catwoman be joining The Riddler as a villain in the film?

That's what a source from CBM is saying. Someone apparently got a look at some "script notes" from the film, which is being written by Chris and Jonathan Nolan. It's really hard to believe that script notes are just laying around, but you never know.

According to this guy, these script notes made a few references to Selina Kyle as a character. Kyle, as every Bat fan knows, becomes Catwoman. So if this is true, expect to see her don the leathers, as its unlikely Nolan would bring in Kyle but not her villainous alter ego, this being his last Bat movie.

We will treat this as a rumor for now, but it will make for a fun topic of discussion. I guess I could see Nolan using this character in the film. After all, there has to be a new female lead, and I don't think fans would mind seeing a new sexy Catwoman. Do you think Nolan would throw Selina Kyle into one of his Batman films? Are you even interested in seeing this character in the next Batman film? Share your thoughts below!

I suspect this wont be the last Batman 3 rumor we hear.


I'm not sure how I feel about this rumor, but I think Nolan can do this character some justice after the atrocity of the 2004 film.

Aaron Eckhart has said that if Christopher Nolan called on him to come back as Two-Face for "Batman 3" he "would certainly do it." The "Inception" director's follow-up to "The Dark Knight" has been alleged to be scheduled to start filming as soon as March or April 2011, and Eckhart just happens to have an open slot on his calendar that month.

"I'll give Chris a shout-out," Eckhart said during an interview with MTV News. "You know, I'm available"

Whatever Nolan decides to do, Eckhart supports him, though.

"Obviously, the script was meant to bring back Heath [Ledger], and unfortunately that can't happen, so I think starting over is a good thing," Eckhart explained. "I'm excited to see. Chris is up against it, because he made such a good movie with 'The Dark Knight,' that he's got to really come up with something good."

At this point we know that the movie won't involve The Joker, but very little else. As far as all of the rumored actors who may be in contention for villain roles, Eckhart wishes them the best too.

"Chris, he's an exceptional filmmaker from start to finish," Eckhart said. "Whenever I hear stuff like that [Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the Riddler], if Johnny Depp's going to play the Riddler, I'm into it. I feel like he can go in any direction."


As much as I would love you to return back to the Batman franchise, it's probably not going to happen. But since your available, I'm free tonight as well ;)
