Eddie Murphy is the surprise pick to play the Riddler in the next Batman movie. Johnny Deep was also rumored to be in the running, but the Sun seems to think Eddie as the Riddler is a sealed deal. This will be a tough role to fill, as Jim Carrey did a fantastic job in 1995’s Batman Forever. But film insiders seem confident with the decision:

“Eddie’s a fantastic addition. Everyone’s excited to see what he does as the Riddler.?

Also rumored to be in the next Batman is Shia LaBeouf as Robin, Rachel Weisz is up for the Catwoman role and Christian Bale will return as Bruce Wayne, while Michael Caine will reprise his role as Alfred.

The Sun reports that the new film will leave us hanging on whether Batman survives a blast at Wayne Towers. The fate of continuing the Batman saga was rocky after the death of Heath Ledger, who is nominated to receive a posthumous Oscar for his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight.

A film insider reveals: “Chris wasn’t sure if he wanted to do another movie but as soon as he decided to, he got the wheels in motion.?

Let’s hope Eddie Murphy does better as the Riddler than he did in Dave.
