i know. it was just an example of how giving out a character name could reveal too much about the story. the name/role of a mobster or businessman doesn't do that.

adding to the fact that Anthony Michael Hall is first being mentioned to have joined the cast right along side the big "Joker" reveal, and that he's soooooo hush hush on the matter... 200 million dollar surprise??????????

guys, c'mon.

i'd totally put money on it.... Ledger is probably going to be just a decoy, deformed by the real Joker himself (ala Alicia Grissom in Burton's Batman) who's been secretly masterminding everything from behind the scenes.
You've lost your speaking privledges.

Woot! I believe we have our Renee Montoya!

Kidding aside... I have a sinking feeling that he's going to be replacing Cillian Murphy as Scarecrow. Though I probably am, and in fact HOPE that I am wrong.

Ha, that was my first reaction too. But it's doubtful.

Nigma would be a good choice but I don't see another villian being thrown in. I really hope it's neither of the Robins. I'd say gangster, playboy or WayneTech employee.

Riddler could actually be a pretty cool villain if he was underplayed and kept out of a goddamn costume. But you'd have to give him something very clever to do.


Although has it ever occurred to anyone that Nolan could a have a FIELD DAY with the Riddler? Tricks and puzzles are his forte after all....

idea ...

Batman has to ditch the suit when he dives into the water (after the Tumbler blows). ends up getting a new suit. but ole Vigilante here goes and gets the old Batman suit? maybe he tries to play Batman and stop the Joker, thus we get the scene from the sides where he's been captured.

I wouldn't mind seeing a pre-riddler Nigma in a role similar to Dr Conners in the Spidey films.

Just a nod that is not neccisarily there to go directly to his villan counter part.

I can see a scene you don't actually see Bruce getting the new bat suit, but Anthony gets it and fights joker, Joker kills, Joker thinks its really batman, but its not, the old switcharoo.

I'm betting on Nigma.

But for some reason I don't think so :|

I think Rossi is going to be a small character not worthy of several weeks of filming. But that is me just pulling that from my ass with a pinch of gut feeling.

nor does it give anything away. Rossi's name doesn't even ring with the casual moviegoer or Batman fan. it's completely meaningless to me.

No but honestly, he would make a great Edward Nigma.
The Riddler is one of the most perfect villains that would fit well in Nolan's universe.
In the BTAS Nigma did work for Wayne Enterprises ( or a company that belonged to it ) so its not so far out of reach.

All Im saying is I would love for The Riddler to get the proper villain treatment for once.
His riddles would be crazy for a Nolan Batman film, lol.

I doubt it's several weeks of shooting. More several days scattered through the next months. It's probably Rossi or the vigilante.

And speaking of The Dark Knight, '80s teen-movie king geek Anthony Michael Hall (The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Weird Science) apparently has a role in next summer's blockbuster, playing a supersecret part that FilmIck.com describes as a "Batman wannabe."

That should settle it then. People who've read the sides know what part he's playing and why revealing it would spoil an integral part of the storyline.

It doesn't settle anything. Brendon of FilmIck is basing his theory on the sides, as we're doing here.

That thought occurred to me as well. Although I think if we saw Ollie, it would be as Ollie, not as Green Arrow. I highly doubt we'll see another major DC hero in costume, but who knows.

I'm wondering this as well? Has the whole "Batman wannabe" thing been confirmed or just rumored?

Adam West's Batman made Riddler a mainstreme comic villian. Jim Carrey's Riddler is still favorably regarded by many movie goers. Plus he would ****in own as Mr. Nigma.

I just don't think you would get that reaction if it was just RANDOM GUY #1. The only guy from the sides I thought could work is Rossi. But I don't see that being a really large role - I am betting Rossi = Gamble.
This is what gets me. If he's not a fan and even he can tell that the very name of his character would spoil something, he must be playing someone widely recognizable OR a less recognizable character who's very pivotal to one specific comic storyline.

Many times, from the Batman gangs in "The Dark Knight returns" or in the "Bats" LOTDK series to the first issue of the Grant Morrison run, where a guy dressed as Batman fights with the Joker.

From what he stated. Hall says he will have a # of scenes with Freeman and Bale. I'm guessing he may be Roman Sionis!

I don't think Hall has huge role anyway since huge roles covered by Bale, Eckhart, Oldman, Leger and Maggie G.
