As we told you a couple of days ago, we heard the news from several stories that Eddie Murphy was lined up to play the Riddler in the next Batman film franchise. Well, we got down to the very nitty-gritty about the story and here is the story; Christopher Nolan (The Director for both films) is not signed on yet, and therefore no other actors are attached to the film-yet. BUT, the rumor is still in the air about Murphy because Nolan expressed his interest on stars he is extremely interested in for the next film (and Murphy's name was mentioned), tentatively titled Gotham. Nolan also expressed he wanted the next film to be as dark as his first two films, and he expressed several actor who might be perfect for the roles. So, no one is attached yet, not Murphy, or Shai LaBeouf (rumored to play as Robin).
So, the script is not written yet, so there is no solid ground yet for anything. We will get back to you on this developing story.
