Everyone’s talking about “Batman 3,” the last part of Christopher Nolan‘s trilogy. He started with “Batman Begins,” and then followed up with “The Dark Knight.” So far the IMDb is reporting four actors who have roles:
Christian Bale as Batman/Bruce Wayne; Gary Oldman as Police Commissioner Jim Gordon; Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox; and Michael Caine as Alfred, the butler.
But who should play Robin, the Boy Wonder, aka Dick Grayson? Catwoman? The Riddler? Mr. Freeze? Harvey Dent–if Aaron Eckhart doesn’t come back? And what about a love interest for Batman? Katie Holmes was in “BB.” And Maggie Gyllenhaal was a sexy pair of legs in “The Dark Knight.” Which femme fatale should come and sweep Bruce Wayne off his feet this time?
And who should do the music? Remember when Prince provided the soundtrack to the 1989 Tim Burton film called “Batman”? And don’t forget, Seal had a huge hit with “Kiss from a Rose” from “Batman Forever.” Is it time for Lady GaGa?
Here are some crazy ideas:
Robin: Shia LaBeouf, Justin Bieber, Zac Efron, Taylor Lautner
The Riddler: Andy Samberg, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel
The Penguin: Jonah Hill, Dick Cheney, Mike Myers
Catwoman: Lady GaGa, Penelope Cruz, Beyonce, Kristein Stewart
A girlfriend for Bruce Wayne, maybe even a Batgirl (remember Yvonne Craig?): Amy Adams, Emily Blunt, Heidi Montag (just kidding)
That’s your weekend homework. Get cracking!
