He just has a funny look to him and prefers being a high-class criminal. His "costume" is formal dress (nice suit, bow tie, cane), and his mannerisms are just a little quirky.

    You could EASILY do a Penguin in Nolan's Batman world, IMO.
    They wouldn't even have to call him "Penguin", just Cobblepot, Gotham's new crime boss.

    For the record, Youtube videos are out for the Dark Knight.

    Best scene in the movie. For those who don't want to be spoiled, DO NOT WATCH.

    Saw it this weekend. VERY good movie. Without going all "Peanut Gallery," I saw a lot of coorelation between themes in the movie and current debates in real life. Interesting stuff.

    Good movie but over hyped. Heath Ledger was good as the Joker but again his performance was way over hyped. I would have been better had it been about 20 minutes shorter IMO.

    Well, you pretty much agree with about 1% of the movie going public.

    I agree as well. Good maybe great, but certainly not "greatest ever."

    Greatest ever tag requires time and history to enter the equation so we'll see how this movie holds up 15-20 years from now.

    I guess that makes me an independent thinker.

    Re: Batman:The Dark Knight

    Who the heck said it was the greatest.....I compare it to what's been out in the last few years and the type of movie it is....and what you usually get from tehse movies...and it is the best I have seen in a good while.

    But you know....just like anything that is this talked about...people are going to get a little tired of it and say what's the big deal.

    Re: Batman:The Dark Knight

    Yeah. I've even run into a couple of people who are revelling in criticizing it. I thought it was fantastic. It held my attention for the full time period, explored deeper themes, didn't descend into campiness, and featured stellar writing, acting, and direction. Most of all, they got Batman right as far as I'm concerned. Maybe the best comic book movie I've seen.

    Having said that, it was the second-best movie I saw last week. I finally got around to seeing No Country for Old Men on DVD, and I thought it was excellent.

    Re: Batman:The Dark Knight

    I haven't heard it labelled as "the greatest movie ever." However, I have heard it discussed as possibly "the best superhero movie ever." That's a label I would have a hard time faulting.

    I was always a Marvel Comics kid and never read Batman, but the recent Marvel adaptations aren't nearly as good as "The Dark Knight" IMO. The writing alone was light years ahead of any recent Marvel adaptation, IMO.

    I watched Batman Begins the other day, and it's a darn good portrayal as well. It doesn't have Heath Ledger, but it's a great origin story.

    Batman Begins was simply fantastic and IMO did the best job at trying to capture Kane's original character of Batman "The Dark Knight".

    A friend told me they reported on ET that they are already planning the next Batman movie, and that they've signed Johnny Depp as the Riddler. They are still scouting for the Penguin character.

    Anyone heard any more on this?

    Apparently all rumors.

    More Batman Rumors: Depp as The Riddler, Hoffman as The Penguin
    I think we're going to see a few more of these rumors over the next few months, but could you imagine if all of them are real? First it was Angelina Jolie for Catwoman and now London's Daily Telegraph says Warner Bros. is eyeing Johnny Depp for The Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman for The Penguin as key villains in the next Batman movie.
