Edward Norton Lobbying For Batman 3 Role
Norton told IGN:
“Chris Nolan’s making the best ones out there by far I’d do one [a superhero movie] with him. He’s set a new bar for sure, and I think he’s done a great, great job.”
He was asked by the entertainment site if he would like to be cast as The Riddler to which he replied
“Your guys can put their votes in on that.”
Although if it comes down to him deciding if he wants the role, I doubt us “guys” will get a chance to vote.
Nolan has announced that his brother has finished a draft of the script and they have a release date:
I don’t like to talk too much about things until I’m further along with them. But I’m working on the script right now. My brother Jonah has done a draft for the script and now I’m writing on it. We have set a release date. And as far as the film being officially greenlit, they haven’t told they don’t want to do it. So I’m hopeful.
What do you think of a Norton based Riddler? I agree with Edward that Chris Nolan is making the best comic book adapted movies on the market at this time, but I don’t know if I could picture him as the Riddler. One things for sure, it would be a hell of a lot different than the Jim Carey portrayal of the man in green (please for the love of god don’t make him wear the green question mark outfit again).
