The Caped Crusader: Nolan's Third Batman?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/news...tman-film.html

Apparently Cher will play Catowoman!

Depp as The Riddler

And it will be called (though probably not definitely) 'The Caped Crusader.'

That's a dodgy title for a movie, man. I dunno if I could handle that.

Cher though? As an aged catburglar, it might be cool. Depp as the Riddler is obviously gonna be aces.

Is Cher any good at acting? I haven't seen a film with her in.

Would take that with a pinch of salt to be honest, this was the last statement from WB studio bosses regarding a new batman film.

"We have no idea where Chris is going with this. ... We haven't had any conversations with him about it."
Apparently they don't even know if Nolan wants to do a third film, although more than likely with the money its made. Cher isn't top of my list as catwoman but we'll see what comes of it.

To be honest, when I first read that Cher was Nolan's first choice, I was iffy.. But I felt the same about Ledger as the Joker, so I'll reserve ALL judgement until later on.

If Nolan is directing though, it'll be superb.

Cher is a very good actress.

Nominated for TWO Oscars of which she has won one.
I suggest anyone thinking she's not a good actress see 'Mask'.

Alternately there is the risk he could play it like he plays Willy Wonka.

I read somewhere before as well that people were worried when Ledger was announced and look how that turned out. I've got faith in Nolan to come up with the the goods again.

On the other hand he could be a closet Cher fan, love her music, and is therefore is desperate to fit her into one of his films.

I was more impressed by the rumour a while ago where philip seymour hoffman was going to be the penguin and depp as the riddler - that would be an awesome team.

i personally think Nolan should use some of the more obscure charcters and villains and not just the big names everyone knows

I still think he should do the Knightfall arc

cher as catwoman sounds pretty ridiculous. Catwoman is supposed to be a bit of a risque love interest. Cher is not hot.

To me thats like if he had cast Michael Jackson as the joker

Why do the riddler, catwoman and penguin again? Let's have Black Mask, Mad Hatter, Killer Croc, Clayface, Hush, Talia A'l Ghul, Manbat - there's so many other characters to choose from...

Cher as Catwoman? Not unless she's playing Selina Kyle as an older woman but that wouldn't fit with the story arc we have now....

Depp as riddler? Not sure...he'd be good as Mad Hatter though.

Depp, would be awesome any part he played imo.

Cher is major fail though, lets all hope its a rumor. Who ever it is NEEDS to be hot.

Johnny Depp has already sold the next film to be. Whoever the main villain is in the next film, their performance WILL be marked against Ledger's Joker. So to have someone like Johnny Depp playing the lead, this will be perfect.

I have faith that Cher will fit perfectly into Nolan's vision, if he has indeed decided on her as his first choice. I suspect/hope this part is false though.

Last I heard before all this Cher business, Angelina Jolie was going to be catwoman, so I don't know who to believe at all really.

I really like Mr Freeze's character, I know Arnie was quite cheesy with it in Batman and Robin, but I just feel there is something interesting about him. The Riddler to me comes across in the same way as The Joker, which is why I'm kinda put off the idea of seeing him in the third film - because he will just be compared to Ledger.

Yeah, neither are physical bad guys, more mental or social villains. I'd love to see Freeze or Bane to see how they're pulled off in Nolan's universe.

I think that Cher is a little old to play the catwoman unless they do something with the storyline to suit her age more, or they CGI her :P

JD could do a good job as the riddler as we know he is capable of such a role.

The Caped Crusader maybe the new film title and it could work in showing that Batman is not a "viglante or dark knight" and starts to become accepted by Gotham as a hero.

Give the man some credit, he's a better actor than that. He can do kiddie acting e.g. Willy Wonka, Pirates trilogy but can do serious adult acting when needed as well. E.g. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Donnie Brasco

I wouldnt mind seeing Depp in a role of pure evil, I have only really seen him in fantasy fun. My fave role of his is still Edward Scissorhands. But my mind is coming up with him as an evil mastermind now and I like what I see.

tbh i think he would be better suited to jarvis tetch, a really creepy willy wonka would suit it well but unfortunately i doubt you could really make a good villan out of him, i also agree with the need for a more physical villan bane would be a good choice because he isnt just a giant muscle bound retard he is very smart too so it might be interesting to see what happens. As for Cher, i dont think its true and i also think its too soon to start filming a new movie, i feel there needs to be a break to absorb the dark knight and hype up the 3rd movie

I'll believe it when they're in front of the cameras shooting the film but until then a tiny pinch of salt will accompany any of these claims.

As for Cher playing Catwoman, she's probably a bit too old to play a character as lithe as Catwoman but I have every faith in Nolan's ability to make a good film.

As for Johnny Depp as the Riddler, I think he's the perfect choice.

If they were to use "The Caped Crusader" as the title it would certainly fit in with Batman's redemption in the eyes of the people of Gotham which is where I would expect Nolan to take the film.
