So to bring everyone up to speed, here's what we know (sort of):
- An inside source has tipped off E! Entertainment's Ted Casablanca that Christopher Nolan is definitely on board to direct the next installment.
- Naturally, Christian Bale will be back for more gravel-throated mayhem.
- There is a new rumor that Rachel Weisz may be cast for the part of Catwoman.
And then there is the rumor that "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson might play the part of the Joker.
OK, let's kill this off right away before Twilight fans start freaking out and screaming at a frequency that tortures dogs:
It ain't going to happen.
Not in the slightest. Less than a snowball's chance in Hell, I'd say. In fact, I would say that Media Morgue's film critic Jay Jammer has a better chance of being the Joker than Robert Pattinson does.
As far as I can find out, no script has been written yet, so it's kind of hard to start casting parts for a movie that doesn't have an established cast of characters. But as we have reported previously, that doesn't stop people from trying to wish it into being.
And Rachel Weisz as Catwoman? While I will probably spend tonight
But as always if we find out anything more concrete than wild, un-confirmed speculation, we'll post it as soon as we can.
