    EDDIE MURPHY will NOT play The Riddler in the next Batman movie

    http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...cle2048300.ece

    FUNNYMAN EDDIE MURPHY will play The Riddler in the next Batman movie, The Sun can reveal.

    The Beverly Hills Cop star, 47, has been signed up by British director CHRISTOPHER NOLAN to reprise the role played by JIM CARREY in 1995’s Batman Forever.

    The surprise move follows speculation linking Pirates of the Caribbean star JOHNNY DEPP to the part.

    The film, set for a 2010 release, is being developed under the working title Gotham.

    Execs have also signed up rising Transformers star SHIA LABEOUF, 22, to play Robin.

    CHRISTIAN BALE will return as Bruce Wayne, while MICHAEL CAINE will again play Bruce’s assistant Alfred.

    Meanwhile, Brit RACHEL WEISZ is said to be up for the Catwoman role.

    Insiders also revealed to The Sun the flick will end on a cliffhanger over whether Batman survives a blast at Wayne Towers.

    Nolan had been tight-lipped about the future of the Batman films after being rocked by the January death of HEATH LEDGER — tipped to receive a posthumous Oscar for his role as The Joker in Batman Returns.


    A film insider said: “Chris wasn’t sure if he wanted to do another movie but as soon as he decided to, he got the wheels in motion.

    “Eddie’s a fantastic addition. Everyone’s excited to see what he does as the Riddler.”

    Robin?? Eddie Murphy? Catwoman?

    Come on, when you have too many 'charecters' on screen the whole movie suffers.

    Robin? ugh.

    I don't believe a word of it.

    Nolan is on record as saying he doesn't feel Robin has a place in this Batman universe, and Eddie Murphy doesn't fit any of the casting tendencies that Nolan has shown.

    Big time. I can't see Eddie Murphy being able to pull off the very dark look of a Nolan film, no matter how good the editor is.

    Eddie would be horrible in this role. Not to mention remember last batman when they just started bringing in stars and adding characters.............down the drain quick.

    Given the live action movies Eddie's been in recently, I'm pretty sure his agent doesn't have access to any casting people. That should have tipped us all off.

    Warner Brothers and Sony are in negotiations for a Batman/Wolverine crossover. Apparently, they already have a script, but they just can't decide whether to call it "Wolverman" or "Batverine".
