Robin Williams in Batman 3?

Well I’m sure most of you have been wondering what’s happening with the latest Batman movie and some things are slowly coming to light. If you read my last blog post about Batman then in it you will have seen where I mentioned when it will be releasing and the director already knows how the story will end.

Now a lot of names have been thrown around as to who will play the villain like Johnny Depp. First off people are speculating as to which villain is going to be in the next film and I’ve heard things from bringing back Ra’s Al Ghoul to Penguin.

The actor/comedian Robin Williams is throwing his name into the hat of wanting to play the Riddler. Even if he’s not Riddler he would like to be in some way attached to the film. The likely hood of this being possible is very high seeing as how Williams worked with Christopher Nolan (director) on the thriller hit Insomnia. So who knows we can possibly see Williams as the next villain and if you ask me I think it has the possibility of matching Ledger’s performance from 2008s The Dark Knight. But only time will tell…

Spiderman actor found…

As you may have heard before, the Spiderman franchise is receiving a reboot after its previous director Sam Raimi opted not to return due to reports of creative differences. Not only that but the actor playing the titular hero Tobey Maguire was not going to return if his director was not going to be there. Sony thus had to search for someone to helm the project but not only that they needed a new actor to fill the role.

A few months back you may have heard that Marc Webb was offered the directorial duties to helm the franchise. He is best known for his work with the highly acclaimed romantic-comedy 500 Days of Summer. And now we have our new Spiderman, introducing…Andrew Garfield. You can view the photo to get a better look at the next Peter Parker. He is a newcomer and this is his first major role (headlining) Hopefully he can fill the role left by Tobey Maguire, Spiderman 2 is one of my favourite movies. There is plenty of time to get things underway the reboot film has a release date of July 3, 2012.
