Batman's Pulling Out the Big Guns - Confirmed!

| Filed under: Film FlickersJohnny Depp


We loves it when actors venture off without their PR or studio babysitters!

The Dark Knight's butler, British old timer Michael Caine, spilled some massive Batman news to MTV at the Toronto film fest.

He's basically confirmed the rumors that super thesp Johnny Depp and Academy Award winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman have been cast in the caped crusader's next film installment:

"I was with [a Warner Bros.] executive and I said, ‘Are we going to make another one?’ They said yeah. I said, ‘How the hell are we going to top Heath? And he says ‘I’ll tell you how you top Heath — Johnny Depp as The Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman as The Penguin.’ I said, ‘S–t, they’ve done it again!’”

We'll see anything Johnny is in!

    No way! This has to be a joke………. right?

  8. 8

    Johnny yes. Hoffman, I don't know. The jury is still out.

  9. 9

    …’cause now the budget is larger. but who's fooling who? The tragic death of Heath Ledger was a main reason for the poularity of this film. But "I Believe You" when you say that big stars have big guns…Perez ought to know…slurp…

  10. 10

    I'm not leaving the show if he is. Love it!

  11. 11

    Wow, that will be fun to watch!
    And it won't have that 'ick' factor that the Dark Knight had to it, IMO, with Heath being gone.
    Plus, Depp is HAWT!

  12. 12

    johnny is in it??? looks like im seeing it!!
    the dark night was amazing, but im curious how they are gonna write in the joker to depp when ledger didnt even die in the dark night,..hmmmmm

  15. 15

  16. 16

  20. 20

    Re: sheba08 – I think it's all a running joke,I've never got anything yet!

  21. 21

    Re: Nurse Allison – Damn girl, why you got say it like that!

  22. 22

    Awesome news!!!!!!! I am glad they are making a 3rd. Angelina Jolie should play Catwoman. Just saying she would kick ass as the feline femme fatale.

  23. 23

    I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed!

    Enough with the celeb BS!! Its time to float another Palin story!!! How about the ' Palin has sex with a 14 year old boy ' or ' Palin runs S&M sex ring out of Igloo' or maybe simple ' Palin, she hate black people ' . Give us something, the Republican ticket needs a little bump up in the polls to close the day.

  25. 25

    Re: sheba08 – Dumped? Nah, there's plenty o harry to go around!

    The Penguin blows and so does that bag of lard Philip Seymore Coochie.

  27. KiKA says – reply to this


    No one will top Heath!! But if Johnny Depp is going to be in the next movie…iTS GOiNG TO BE HAWT!!!

  28. haha says – reply to this


    don't think the studio isn't carefully orchestrating this 'leak' of details to keep the interest level going.

  29. Memi says – reply to this


    Oh, I hope this is true. I love both of those actors.

  30. 30


  31. 31

    THIS SUCKS SOO MUCH! the reason why i loved heath so much was because he did an amazing job, and he was a total surprise factor. don't get me wrong, johnny's a good actor, but he does the same old stuff; it's dumb and overly used. i want someone new– another surprise factor! what a dissappointment……. DUMB

  32. 32

    This is going to be such a great movie!! Not for another few years though!!

  33. 33

    Johnny Depp and Phillip Seymour Hoffman weren't really that much of surprise. Especially Johnny Depp doing the Riddler. Who else would do it … Jim Carey. I agree though that people (especially teen girls) will go bat-shit over Johnny.

  34. kady says – reply to this


    Johnny's one of my fave acotrs but, that still probably won't top heath.
    it will be amazing though, next best movie of the year?

  35. 35

    I wish this were true, drool..Johnny is the sexiest and best actor alive today..Soooooooooo gorgeous! I would give my little pinkie to you know..
    But I think they were just being sarcastic and it's all a JOKE!

  36. 36

    Harry thank you for answering my question! But, no one will ever top Heath in any Batman movie. And, I love Johnny Depp! He would do good. But, look how long it took to beat the number one movie. Years….. So, If Johnny is
    in it I know it will be great! I know I will see it.

  37. 37

    thats weird. johnny specifically DIDNT confirm it last week. unless a lot can happen in a week in hollywoodland

  38. 38

    The fucking last movie is still in cinemas and they are already talking about making a new one, bloody stupid if you ask me!

  39. 39

    That's some major talent. Either one of them could be cast in just about anything. Looking forward to it.

  40. Neith says – reply to this


    I love Johnny and all but idk, I really like Hoffman too it's just, the direction they have gone with this batman being dark and realistic is what I really like about it. Johnny to me as being dark is more cartoony than realistic.

  41. 41



  42. 42


    thats going to be a really really really really good movie.. hahaha.
    but heath was REALLY REALLY amazing in the dark knight…. hmmmmm

  43. 43

    Johnny Depp would MAKE Batman & Angelina as cat women , what a duo :) team super sexy :)

  44. LSD says – reply to this


    As much as I LLLOOOVVVEEE Johnny Depp, I hope he doesn't do this one. I love Johnny's unique roles & characters that he plays. And to be honest, Jim Carey pretty much nailed that role as the Riddler. Now I've already forgiven Johnny for the Willy Wonka mess that should never have been touched. I just don't know if I have it in me to forgive him again for this one if he does. Besides…….isn't he supposed to be doing 'Alice In Wonderland' with Tim Burton soon. He's supposed to play the Mad Hatter which I think he could pull off! Come on Johnny……don't mess with what's already been perfected.

  45. 45

    They both are fantastic actors. I'd LOVE to see both of them in the new one!

  46. 46

    Johnny and Phillip would be perfect in the next batman movie! They are both great actors.

  47. 47

    Johnny Depp is too obvious. I don't like it.

  48. 48

    thats awesome news! now they just have to add catwoman in it!!

  49. 49

    depp and hoffman will be PERFECT in those roles!

  50. 50

    Sounds more like a joke then anything. I would hate to see Johnny Depp cast in the batman franchise.

  51. 51

    and GAYrez Hilton as the PenguinShit! Type casting I know………

  52. 52

    would it kill the guy to add some female villians for once?! additionally bring back cillian murphy. that is one hot irishman right there who was underused in both films!

    seriously wtf?!

  53. 53

    It will suck.

  54. 54

    yup, i would see anything he is in too!! ive been in love with him since he had on tighty whities in Crybaby. soo niiice =) …and i HATE tighty whighties!

  55. 55

    Not to say that Johnny wouldn't be AMAZING in this film, but can he really top Heath Ledger?? hmmms …

  56. 56

    Love it!

  57. 57

    GENIUS! I can just see Johnny as the Riddler and Hoffman as the Penguin.

  58. 58

    Agree w/ you, #22… Angelina is perfection.

  59. 59

    HOOOOLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeee SHIZ!!! I just peed my pants!!!!!

  60. 60



  61. 61

    This is just too fucking cool.

  62. 62

    Phillip Seymour Hoffman iz AMAZING!!!!!!! I fucking loved him in Boogie Nights & Magnolia! This should be good! Can't wait!

  63. 63


  64. 64

    That is an interesting pick. It will make a good movie as both actors are incredible. I'll see it. They still need to get Angelina as Catwoman. Seriously.

  65. 65

    yesss!!!i love johnny

  66. 66

    ………. I got my wizh……………..
    …..I could lick him up one……………….
    ..side and down the other………………………
    . all freakin day…hez the bezt ever…………………
    I will alwayz luv him…♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥4/ever…………………..
    ..now..make sure u put angelina az the catwoman………………..

  67. 67

    Please, Please, PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE let this be true!

    (*Crosses everything*)

    Phillip and Johnny are both such amazing actors,
    and I would give just about anything to see them together!

    Sure, The Riddler and Penguin aren`t exactly the most glamorous villians ever to grace the screen…But if anybody could make something out of them, it would be these guys. Heck, I would go to Timbuktu and back just to see Johnny in the movie!

  68. 68

    omgizzle christian bale AND johnny depp?! dearie me…. overload!

  69. 69

    Johnny Depp is unbelievable. He is my all time favorite guy in the whole world. My world does revolve around him. He should be cast in every Batman movie. Get Brad Pitt for Batman, that last dude sucked big time.

  70. 70

    My sister poisonbitchyivy and I want to play in the movie with Johnny Depp. We will do anything to get close to him. He is our love.

  71. 71

    I want him on the back of my crotchrocket. I could ride him all day and forever. He will be fantastic as the Riddler.

  72. 72

    We love him. So very happy that he will be the Riddler. We want
    the old penguin back. He is the only one that is great. I forget his name. The dude from Matilda movie.

  73. 73

    Johnny is one lovely cock that I would love to have everynight of every year. Great pick for the Riddler.

  74. 74

    I have plans of kidnapping him and taking him deep into the forrest. What I will do with him there will be his desires. I aim to please him. I have been in love with him always and eternally.
    He is great at every role he's in. I'm excited now.

  75. 75

    Re: miss_alyss
    of course he can top Ledger..after all Ledger is gone
    out of site..out of mind
    Johnny can top anyone in the world, yea, he's that great…

  76. 76

    No one is better than him. I could watch him in everything and never get sick of looking at his beautiful face. Great pick.

  77. 77

    When I'm president, I will pick Johnny Depp for my V.P.
    Obama is making my party lose by trashing Sarah Palin.
    Can you believe he said," You can put lipstick on a pig and it's
    still a pig?" Doesn't he realize that he is alienating all woman when he says that? Now, all of the key battleground states that I won..will now go to McCain. Thanks alot Obama for throwing the

  80. 80

    Love both of them, but Heath will be a very hard act to follow.

  81. 81

    This will be the movie that tops them all. So long Spiderman! Team Depp!

  82. 82

    I CAN'T WAIT!!! I would like to see Johnny take on the Joker. I don't think it'll top Heath's but it'll be very close!

  83. 83

    Re: lil-lauren – Well, if you think Bale & Depp are a hot combo, get in line for Public Enemies because they'll both be in that flick. Must be the steamiest roll of filnm ever made. Imagine that sandwich!

  84. 84

    Johnny Depp,
    Please pick me to play in your movie with you. It is my last and only wish. Love, PoisonBitchyIvy
