Batman – Will the next film have The Riddler and will he be Benjamin Ciaramello

Posted by LiveFor on March 11, 2010

Recently, over on the Batman 3 IMDB page, Benjamin Ciaramello, (Santiago in Friday Night Lights) was listed as playing the Riddler

io9 got in touche with Ciaramello, and asked him about it. This was his response:

Edward Nygma, Eddie Nashton, call me what you want. There is no other one but me.

A riddle indeed. Is it one man’s quest to get himself in Christopher Nolan’s next Batman film? Rumour or reality?

Ciaramello also did this weird little video.

Meanwhile, Christopher Nolan has mentioned a little bit about what we can expect to see in the third Batman film.

“Without getting into specifics, the key thing that makes the third film a great possibility for us is that we want to finish our story,” he said. “And in viewing it as the finishing of a story rather than infinitely blowing up the balloon and expanding the story”….. “Unlike the comics, these things don’t go on forever in film and viewing it as a story with an end is useful. Viewing it as an ending, that sets you very much on the right track about the appropriate conclusion and the essence of what tale we’re telling. And it harkens back to that priority of trying to find the reality in these fantastic stories. That’s what we do.

He also said that out of all the Batman bad guys, Mr Freeze would definitely not be in the third film.

    I got quite a Joker vibe from him, you know in the make-up he might make a pretty good replacement if they were going to go the route of getting someone to match Ledger’s performance rather than going for a complete re-cast.
