Riddle Me This, Riddle Me That: Who’ll Play the Riddler in Nolan’s Third Bat?

While I’m not sure he makes a great choice, I’ll have to defer to Christopher Nolan, who’s just setting the world on fire right now with the success of Inception. FirstShowing recently confirmed that the Riddler will be the featured villain in the third installment of Nolan’s Batman films, and that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is interested in the part.

We’ve gotten word from a reliable inside source with a studio casting grid that The Riddler is listed as a character for Chris Nolan’s highly anticipated to the sequel to The Dark Knight, which is still called Batman 3 at Warner Bros. Even more interesting, the actor currently listed in the same grid to play the assumed villain is none other than Joseph Gordon-Levitt, whose status is just listed as “interested.”

Cool, I guess…?  I mean, it’s pretty much impossible for anybody to fill out the oversized novelty shoes that Heath Ledger’s Joker left behind. So if this kid intends to step up to the plate he’s either 1. dreaming or 2. got an angel with him (enough entendres to make your head spin – that’s how I do, folks).
