The shading on the letter 'P' in Darkie's link is inspired. I wonder when we will truly discover what is implied by the 'Not Found' part, what with these clever marketing buffs.

Being serious though, I am really anticipating this. The current idea for the possible use of The Penguin sounds great, and of course the build up of Harvey Dent is interesting too. Nolan seems to have it bang on the money again.

Far too complicated for my noggin that highlighting malarky. Guess it beats Chinese whispers though. On the Penguin, it's in Lafdugga's link, but it is to have him as a British Arm's dealer/mob boss.

Well, now we know what happens when you put lipstick on while drunk and not looking in a mirror...

Harvey Dent will appear, much like he did in Tim Burton's original....but he will not become Two-face until near the very end of the movie (if at all), as the main rumours have him as the main villain for the next movie.

Anthony Michael Hall is sworn to secrecy on the character he is to portay.

I wonder who this secret character may be........ Another villain?

"The Dead Zone" star Anthony Michael Hall revealed to LA Daily News that he has a role in Chris Nolan's The Dark Knight, currently filming for a July 18, 2008 release.

"I signed a confidentiality agreement, and I can't say which part I'm playing because it affects the story," said Hall. "I can't give away the suspense - it's a $200 million surprise, and I don't want to be the guy to ruin it."

He added, "I'm excited about it - Christian Bale back as Batman. Heath Ledger is joining the cast as the Joker. Of course, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine return, and they're great."

While he's shooting the sixth season of the USA Network series, he was able to make it for the first day of production in London the weekend before last. He said he's not scheduled to rejoin shooting until August, after "The Dead Zone" is wrapped.

"They're shooting in London, Chicago and Hong Kong. My next dates are in Chicago, the third week of August with Morgan, then I get to go back to London."

"It's really a great role," he added. "I'm in throughout the whole movie, and I'm really looking forward to working with Christian and Morgan and all these real Hollywood heavy hitters."

Interesting if they were to go that way, with it culminating in the Riddler and Two Face as the two villian's in the third film. Nolan's dig at Batman Forever maybe?

If it is the riddler, I hope they do it well. Riddler in Batman forever...was not good.

Carrey based his Riddler off the Frank Gorshen type Riddler from the Adam West Batman TV show. If you ask me, it was Two-Face who was worse in Batman Forever.

If AMH does play Nigma/Riddler then I think he'll be more like the Animated Series Riddler.

No the Riddler was the best thing about Batman forever, Tommy Lee Jones made Two face seem boring. Atlease with the riddler it brought some cheesey but great moments.

If they do the riddler he has to be something very very funny and special

Problem with those films were that the villains were so cartoonish.

I'd be happy if the Riddler was like how they've portrayed the Joker, sinister and menacing. I still say Paul Bettany would make a really cool Riddler.

I loved the first 3 movies villains, especially The Riddler (Meeee! *Flaps arms*) and the Penguin. Infact the only casting I have a problem with is Arnie as Mr Freeze in Batman and Robin, he is way bigger than the Mr Freeze's I've seen, for instance in the animated series, I'd go with someone along the lines of Patrick Stewart instead.
As for the next movie I guess we need to wait and see, I wonder if the Tumbler will be back or a proper Batmobile? Also is The Joker's look new or based on one of the Graphic novels?
