His character drives part of the plot, therefore he doesn't want to ruin the $200 million film. The quote doesn't make him a well-known character.

He's a reporter that doesn't seem to go to any media events, hmmm

Yeah. Someone had reported to BOF with that quote, then it became a world-wide rule that the character was definetely well-known and couldn't be anything else. Selfish I say..

Come on people your really grasping at straws, the 200 million dollar surprise doesn't jive with his character that he is playing. Saying that it could mean it's because Bruce Wayne is worth a lot of money I think is ridiculous. Unless he was having fun with it but really I think that's grasping at straws.

If he's just a meaningless reporter then this secrecy was not neccessaryy, he's somebody else!

They're hyping the role, film, and cast. Probably all end up face-palming when we see Anthony Michael Hall on the screen and how his character is playing into the story.

We don't know anything about his character, this report still isn't confirmed from Hollywood Chicago. Hall can play the reporter and still have a role that'll effect the entire plot. He doesn't have to play Nygma or Field.

So in the end you were right, he's playing the Riddler.
The Riddler from Batman Forever with the same obsession for Bruce Wayne.
So what's next? Nipples on the suit? A Two Face with the scarred half in fluorescent pink?

Hall is NOT THE RIDDLER.

that's true, but his whole '$200million surprise" comment started all that . . . he didnt' really have to say that; but it was smart for him publicly . . .

If the HollywoodChicago report gets confirmed, then it's pretty much certain he's Reese.

But no, we haven't yet.

From HollywoodChicago.com:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
http://www.hollywoodchicago.com/2007/08/scoop-anthony-michael-hall-in-dark.html

coop: Anthony Michael Hall in ‘The Dark Knight’ Revealed

I received a series of e-mails late Monday night hinting at unreleased, highly specific plot information about “The Dark Knight”. My source requested a phone interview to reveal this information.

As this source did not sign a confidentiality agreement, this information comes definitively from working hours on the set on Sunday, Aug. 19. This information exposes the widely debated role of Anthony Michael Hall and his involvement with Batman/Bruce Wayne.

Hall’s character plays an investigative reporter for the GCN, which was photographed on Aug. 19. The scene shot that day, which is about three-fourths of the way into the film, goes like so.

Hall’s character is intensely jealous of Bruce Wayne. He even has an exactly matching Lamborghini Murcielago.

The character learns of Bruce Wayne’s true identity as Batman and plans to use the GCN to blow the whistle on him. My source describes Hall’s character not as a villain but as an antagonist.

Of course, the Joker is the true villain. Out of fear that the Joker will lose the object of his game-playing affection, he sets out to stop Hall’s character by calling in a bomb threat to the TV station.
The bomb threat causes widespread havoc. The move is designed to steal the attention off the character so he can’t issue the Batman-revealing report.

The source also submitted some pictures of a Lamborghini on set. This source spent time speaking with Anthony Michael Hall and in a PA meeting.

Sounds like a cool little role for AMH.

Especially if the reporter's name is Edward Nigma.

Where did we get the name Reese from, BTW? Was it in the slides? If so, it could be a codename, like Randolph...

Hmm. Interesting. Especially the bit about the Joker causing chaos to keep Batman's secret from getting out. Sure, that's straight out of STRANGE APPARITIONS, and a lovely touch, but in THE DARK KNIGHT it seems like Joker's looking for Batman's identity.

Joker hunts down Dent after finding out he's Batman, reportedly finds out Batman's identity from Rachel (only to be "disproven" later, and then to be very unhappy with Rachel over that revelation), and in that one side seems to ask one of the Brian whether he's the real Batman or not. Perhaps the article gets it mostly right, but then the Joker steals AMH to find out if he knows Batman's identity or not... and is disappointed with the answer.

It doesn't say The Joker kills him. It says that he calls in a bomb threat into the station, to stop Reese from hogging his limelight. He doesn't want to be "topped" by a lowly reporter, which is classic Joker.

Also, having checked some older posts, Reese is definitely Reese, not a casting-side name. So it seems like we'll be getting no Ed Nigma in this film after all. Back to my "HUGH LAURIE DAMNIT!" posts in the Riddler threads on the Sequel boards then!

As for AMH, the role still sounds like a good one. Like Earle's role in "Begins".

Well we still don't know if that's his role or not, it has not been confirmed!

Gotcha. In that case, that makes sense, and is very Jokerish in that petty sort of way.

Besides, being "the guy who discovers Bruce Wayne is Batman" is a pretty big surprise.

Of course, if Reese knows Bruce Wayne is Batman, he has to die.

I'm thinking it'd be cool if The Joker kidnaps him. And Reese is pleading for his life, saying "I know who Batman is!" And The Joker's all like "I don't care", and just shoots him.
