    I have a crazy thought-


    How about we just ignore all the crazy flying rumors until they actually ANNOUNCE THAT A BATMAN 3 WILL BE MADE?!?!

    Paul saying he wants to do it is not the same as "Paul Giamatti will be the Penguin". You have casting news backwards. At least you didn't post that you found it on IMDB.

    Huh, I could almost see him playing a decent Penguin. Would really have to see him dressed up as the Penguin, and maybe see him play a similar role, before forming an opinion. I think it'll be interesting to see what they do for the, inevitable, third movie. The realisticness of the first two movies rules out a good amount of villains, though there are enough left to make at least a couple more movies. I could see Mr. Freeze being a good choice, as long as they went with a more simplistic costume design compared to Arnold's Freeze. I think they will make at least one more, but we'll just have to wait and see if they decide to make another one or not.

    Oh, I knew it wasnt confirmed facts and all, I was just throwing in some new-er rumors for discussion. Thats why I had said it could be merged with the other Batman topics.

    He has my vote to be Oswald Cobblepot. Now if this can only be made into reality.

    David Tennant has also said that he would love to play the Riddler, but that doesn't mean that he is or will ever be cast.

    Giamatti would turn in a superb performance as The Penguin. He can play the over the top villain (Shoot 'Em Up), he's a terrific dramatic actor, and he has nice comedic timing.

    He's definitely got my vote.

    It will probably never happen, but we can hope.

    Frankly I'm sick of seeing speculation for a project that doesn't exist and probably won't for the better part of a decade.


    And honestly I'm fine with that. "Dark Knight" wasn't even that good.

    ever since he was in Shoot Em Up, I have wanted him to do more villain roles. He is a gas in that movie.

    ^This

    And this^

    Also how how are they going to explain the sudden lose of the Joker? Will they replace him? I'm fine with that but I'm sure there will be a huge uproar of that.
