Depp And Hoffman, The Next Riddler and Penguin?

10Sep08

Is Johnny Depp signed on to play The Riddler?   Phillip Seymour Hoffman signed on as The Penguin?  Depends on what you read, and who you believe. Actor Micheal Cain has been quoted as saying (in a meeting with execs), “I said, ‘How the hell are we going to top Heath?’ And he says ‘I’ll tell you how you top Heath — Johnny Depp as The Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman as The Penguin.’ I said, ‘S–t, they’ve done it again!'”.  Yet Phillip Seymour Hoffman says that he has not signed on as The Penguin.  He has been quoted as saying (speaking to MTV news),  “No one has talked to me about it ever — never … It happened, like, five years ago, too. It was a rumor back then and it’s still a rumor. [laughs] It’s just in the press. It’s funny.”.  I think that says it all…Don’t always believe what you hear.

As for Johnny Depp playing the Riddler, as of yet, I have found nothing that either confirms nor denies this.  I guess we will just have to wait and see.  It is still very  early and anything can happen.  I will say this though, in order to top the amazing success of The Dark Night (over a half a billion in box office sales), the next Batman installment will have to one amazing cast paired up with an even better plot.
