Watched Insomnia last night on TV, Robin Williams gave a great performance. He can do a serious role.

I watched it too. It was a cross between that and 100 scariest moments on E4

Yes I rather watch a Chris Nolan film... I wonder if Al Pacino would like to be in a Batman movie...

I think that could be possible. He starred in Dick Tracy,so he isn't shy to star in a comic book movie. But Batman is a higher calibre than to be considered a CBM. I could see Al in it.

^I just thought of Ventriloquist too. Not a character that'll probably be in the third film, but that'd still be a good role for him.

I find him lame and Robin Willaims is better actor to play Him.

Can Robin Williams do serious? Yes, yes he can, very well in fact. Though I tend to like casting choices which are a bit more inspired. If I ever saw him play a Batman villain, I don't think I could get over the fact that he was Robin Williams.

A doctor at Arkham, that's the most I'll give him.

I can see him as Hugo Strange. But not Riddler. I wouldn't have minded him for that role back in his Mork and Mindy days, but I think he's too old now. The last thing I pictured Riddler is an almost 60 year old man and slightly overweight.

There are so many Batman characters I could easily see Williams as. Even in the Nolanverse.

Just off the top off my head:

Dr. Death
Hugo Strange
Dr. Milo
Ventriloquist
Rupert Thorne
Killer Moth
Black Mask
Firefly
Deadshot

and for a none villain, Harvey Bullock.

He can definitely do dark roles, but I'm not sure if I'd want him as a main villain. Guess it would depend on the villain in question and what Nolan's vision for that villain is, though. But I'd prefer to see him in a smaller role. I do think he deserves to be in a Batman movie, though, after the way WB teased him with the Joker in '89 and then with Riddler in Forever.

I mean, do you want him to have a role because you like him as an actor or because of "the way WB teased him with the Joker in '89 and then with Riddler in Forever"?

Yes indeed. I actually think it's one of his best performances.

Why not? They did that with Nicholson's Joker? lol.
No, I don't want to see Williams running around in spandex either. I still think he was amazing in One Hour Photo. Just dont' see a need for him in the Bat films at this point.

I have always been and will always be a Williams fan, but that doesn't mean he should be involved in this project. Had they gone with him instead of Carrey 15 years ago I would've been thrilled. But 15 years have passed.

I think Williams's best psycho role was in Law & Order SVU.

Hugo Strange or Ventriloquist suits him.
