Joseph Gordon-Levitt Rumored to Play The Riddler in Batman 3

Buzz In: Who Should Play the Riddler in Batman 3?

The Batman rumors continue to circle. The latest: The Riddler may appear in the follow-up to The Dark Knight, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's name is currently attached as "interested." We've heard rumblings of this before, but now that director Christopher Nolan is coming off a successful partnership with JGL in Inception, the gossip seems more probable than ever.

I think Gordon-Levitt could be great for the part but the script reportedly calls for an actor between the ages of 35 to 45. If Nolan decides to stick with someone older, previously rumored Johnny Depp could fit the bill, although he's a little over the cap at age 47. Anthony Michael Hall's name was also attached a while back, but that sounds unlikely.

So riddle me this: who would you put in the villainous role? For me, the first guys that come to mind in that age range are Jude Law or Ewan McGregor. Perhaps one of them could step in, but do you have any casting suggestions?

David Tennant would be an ok idea. Michael C Hall? Perhaps. Riddler..isnt funny. Hes more of a creepy genius. Carey was a horrid choice to begin with..and Id like to NOT see Depp. JGL would be good if her were slightly older.

Oooh, I also like the suggestion of Michael C. Hall! Ok, so those are my top 3 for Riddler: JGL, Robert Downey Jr, and Michael C. Hall.

Phillip Seymore Hoffman as the Penguin is brilliant. How about Neil Patrick Harris as the Riddler?

I think JGL would be good, regardless of the age. If we were going young, I'd say Jackson Rathbone too.Michael C Hall sure knows how to do the creepy/dangerous, but I've only seen him on Dexter so I can't quite picture him and the sort of wacky Riddler. But I love him and would love to see him do something big like that.

the riddler needs to be funny and creepy and totally wacked out, i cant see any of the actors suggested fitting that role the way Jim Carey did, recast carey

my fav choice is JGL. his career is pretty hot right now and i definitely think he could turn in a performance every bit as chilling and epic as Heath Ledger's. however, i am LOVING the suggestion of Michael C. Hall. with Dexter, he's quietly creepy, so it would be amazing to see him openly creepy as the Riddler!! i really like the idea of casting lesser known actors. this is becoming such a big franchise now that i find it hard to imagine Johnny and RDJ would have the time to commit since they already have Pirate's and Iron Man...although they would be fantastic choices!philip seymour hoffman as the penguin=AMAZING suggestion!!
