I don't get it... if they were going to have another major iconic villain... they should have used Penguin? Doesn't a major arms dealer better serve this type of plot they appear to be going with... I hope Penguin gets his cameo in part 3...

I really hope they use Penguin as well. I would love to see Nolan's take on Penguin.....especially as a British crime/boss and arms dealer.

Maybe they will use him in the third one. I don't buy Nolans lien about Penguin not fitting in with a more realistic take on Batman...he is simply a short fat man with a slightly deformed nose, a snazzy dress sense, and a brilliant, intellectual criminal mind. They should use him for the third installment.

I never cared for Riddler much....I guess I am glad they are using him. AMH looks like Riddler. Put him in a green business suit with a black dress shirt, maybe a white tie..and there we go.

Ya know, I'm not gonna believe the Riddler speculation until there is offical word from the studio.


I still don't buy it, and I hope to hell all of the speculation is wrong.

I've been saying since day one that my gut feeling led me to believe AMH was playing The Riddler/Nigma. I still think so, and I really hope it comes to fruition. He'd be great!

And just for the record, the canon version of The Riddler has dark hair. The ****ed up Schumaker version had red.

That's another thing that ****in' Schumaker screwed up

I say that will definitely happen. Word was that The Penguin would have a part in TDK, but that’s been dismissed by LATINO REVIEW insiders. Now which ones will show up -- and how major or minor the part -- is the question.

UPDATE: Yes, and it's an "Enigma."


All I can say is...yay.
eh, consider the source.

Incorrect. Sides are not intended for the public. Sides refer to pages of script specifically compiled for one actor for one role. For each day's shooting actors are usually provided with their sides for that particular day to have an easy way to go over their scenes. They're usually prepared at the end of the shooting day for the next day's scenes. They're usually copied at a reduced size, about 64 percent, so that they can be trimmed and stapled together in a portable form that fits in the actors' pockets. (Hence the term 'sides,' you can usually split a sheet of paper down the middle and they come out slim).

Sides are also used during the audition process, which these particular sides were. A set is prepared and marked for each part that is being read for so that actors may prepare for their reading.

They aren't "teasers."

if indeed this will happen, there are several things that must be clarified.

1. edward nIgma. i hate the "y" spelling.
2. his hair is not red. it's brownish.
3. bowler hat is a must.
4. eye mask would be preferable.
5. spandex = boycott
6. question marks all over the suit is unnecessary.
7. he better not be camp.

now, i hope his role is small at first, then much larger later. i don't like how this seems though; he'll likely be a minor throwaway character.

i wish they made him the main villain of a film with edward norton. oh well, anthony michael hall isn't the worst they could've done.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
i hope the rumors aren't true.

it depends on the writers and how they want to spell it, but nigma is the more popular spelling.

not sure about the original; i would expect the "i".

Well, to add a little bit of light to your tunnel, just remember that it's speculation and there is no offical word from the studio as of yet.

I'm hoping to hell he's not the Riddler. Jim Carey bastardized the character enough. He doesn't need to be portrayed by a B list actor 20 years past his prime.


IMO, of course.

jim carrey would have been a decent riddler if he played it straight in a non-shumaucher directed film.

agreed on your assessment of michael hall.

and yes, it's all rumor, but i don't like it regardless.

That's a bit unfair. Dead Zone has stirred a lot of buzz.
Also keep in mind he was probably screen tested by Nolan, and really, could the casting of villains for Begins have been better? (I think not)

I've never seen anything with Hall as an adult, as an actor, with this role he really has a chance to bring something dynamic to it. Kinda excited.

Not sure on the glasses thing that Dini introduced. The art on the tec run is pretty average in my opinion. Riddler looks lame in it.

I stand by my statement.

But in all fairness, I don't think he'll be portraying the Riddler.

first off, glasses can't replace the eye mask.

in a world where a guy can put a bag on his face or a dude whose skin is totally white with a grotesque smile, i don't see why a guy can't wear a green suit with a hat and an eye mask.

Hey, AMH is awesome in the Dead Zone and I could see him being a great Riddler. He sometimes portrays several characters in an episode and he is very good. I think he could pull it off if the rumors are true.

AMH is probably playing Hush, who incidently worked with Riddler in his first comicbook appearaces.

Hush isn't possible for the fact that "Hush = Gus Lewis needs to be in the film. Gus is not in the film = No Hush"

My logic is undeniable.
