^ One could only wish....

Jim Carrey has the manic qualities needed for the riddler, but Robin Williams can do that, plus scare the s**t out of you too.

One Hour Photo is an example of that.

Keep Robin Williams away from the Batfilms, but I'd actually like to Jim Carrey again, but as Jack Rider

I'd actually like to see Robin Williams in a Batman movie.I'm sure there are others who would want him in it also.

Robin Williams would've made a great Riddler 10 years ago. But now he's old as ****.

If he can still act,he could possibly pull off The Riddler.

It's unlikely & very doubtful, since he's out of shape & considerably older now for that part. If they were to offer Williams a part, in my opinion it'd have to be a secondary role. Jim Carrey can still do The Riddler part, but that "window" is closing rapidly. However, I doubt Nolan will consider him.

I do agree somewhat with the idea of casting Williams as the Ventriloquist.

He'd be perfect as The Ventriloquist.He doesn't need to be in shape for him.

Realistically speaking, if Nolan is still running the franchise I highly doubt he'll consider a character as The Ventriloquist. I think he's a cool character, however the powers that be, make not see it that way.

I'd say yes.
Williams has shown in films like 'One Hour Photo' and especially 'Insomnia' that he is capable of tapping into a surprisingly dark side of his personality, and playing characters that are psychotic and at times even truly evil.
For who he could play in a Batman film (Assuming he could get to that dark place again), I'd say Hugo Strange. There have been a couple really good fan trailers made with him as Strange, and with many of the 'Arkham City' interview tapes (Especially the ones for Two- Face) I could almost imagine Williams delivering Strange's lines.
I'd love to see him in that role.

It depeneds on what character he'd play.

I don't want to see his schtick being used for the Riddler. I think it's a bit tired.
He could probably pull off a Penguin, or Mad hatter.

Ultimately though, I'd prefer not to see him in the films.

It would have been cool to have him in a minor role. Such as a doctor or Joker henchmen or something. Something small, but more than just a simple background character with no dialogue.

If there was ever a time to do it, it would have been in the Nolan trilogy. It's apparent Nolan likes to use the same actors in multiple of his films, so with Willaims playing a main role in Insomnia, since Robin is so vocal over his Batman fandom and desire to play a role, you would have thought Nolan could find something for him.

First thing I thought of when I heard the news is that it's a tragedy he'll never get the chance to finally be in a Batman film.

It seems like the kind of thing he'd personally relish - not just as an actor, but as a nerd.
