Eminem As Batman’s Nemesis, The Riddler?

| Filed under: Film FlickersJohnny DeppEminem


Chart-topping rapper Eminem hinted that he would be interested in playing the Riddler in Christopher Nolan’s next Batman movie.

However, Johnny Depp and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are also in talks for the role.

“When it comes to business, you know I ain’t no fiddler…You tell tem Batman biggies, I wanna play “The Riddler!” said Eminem to his reps.

A rapping Riddler? That sounds intriguing, but the Riddler also has to be conniving and evil, not a thug.

Sorry Eminem, but we’re not sure you have the acting chops for this role!

    Eminem would be great. Refreshing.

  3. 3

    Why bother posting all this Eminem news? Boring

  4. 4

    He could never do as good a job as Jim Carrey.

  5. 5

    omg!! yesss eminem should be the riddler!.. or johnny Depp…. :)

  6. 6

    My quick take is no…but you know the Riddler spoke in riddles, i.e. rhymes as the younger people of today relate to as in Rhythmic American Poetry. So as different as Jim Carey was to Frank Gorshin (sp?) maybe Eminen could be to Jim Carey. Hope if he takes the role he will try an own it…

    Great idea! maybe Beyonce can play catwoman and Justin Bieber can be robin! (note the sarcasim)

    god no, enough with the singers trying to act

    Em could do it. Perez, YOU don't have the acting chops for it. Did you not see 8 mile? You always gotta hate on Em, yet you were at the show last night.

  10. 10

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt ftw.

  11. 11

    I think he could do it and bring something fresh to the role. kinda all set with johnny even if he's great in many ways….em in the role would make me want to check it out for sure.

  12. 12

    haha woooh! id like that hahaha

    I think he would be incredible as the ridler, perez you have no talent and you dont know talent, gtfo

  14. YUCK says – reply to this


    oh perez, you couldnt act your way out of paper bag, you are jealous of anyone that is not an established actor getting a gig, fuck you and fuck off.

  15. 15

    visually I can see him as the riddler

  16. 16

    I'm pretty sure JGL has got this.

  17. 17

    I think he would be great as the Riddler!

  18. 18

    I dunno…. it's an interesting thought.. But, I have to admit that I'd prefer Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

  19. 19

    No, NO RIDDLER! That a such a weak character

  20. 20

    Kinda like you for as an American Idol judge…NO.

  21. 21

    WHY NOT???? Eminem is a great actor and an evil rhymer role would be perfect for him!!!!

  22. 22

    Re: DaRockz – trying to act???? Stfu!! Haven't u seen " 8 mile"?? The wash and funny people? Eminem is not new to acting and is not trying to!! He also won awards as a male actor, biiitch

  23. 23

    Is it just me or is Joseph Gordon-Levitt the SPITTING image of heath ledger??

  24. 8008s says – reply to this


    i dont think sooo…

  25. 25

    Please, NO NO NO…….

  26. 26

    He could do a great job, but JGL was calling himself "the riddler" througout the entire filming process of Inception. He's wanted it for a long while, I say throw em all in and whoever Nolan thinks is best fit, take it. Still think JGL is the Riddler. You think Eminem is an off the wall choice? Years ago I heard whisperings they were eyeing Eddie Murphy for the Riddler!

  27. 27

    I love you Eminem, but when it comes to playing the crazies, nobody does it better than good ole Johnny. Depp gets my vote Every.Time.

  28. 28

    Re: Phoqueoff – fuck you, he didnt win an oscar for 8mile. that role should go to a real actor not rapper who acts on the side.

  29. 29

    I love you em but no

  30. 30

    this story sounds fake as shit. stupid national enquirer

  31. 31

    he was amazing in 8-miles. you never know..

  32. 32

    Lmao. Seriously? We've all seen 8 Mile right?

  33. 33

    He could do it. Hope he does.

  34. 34

    EWW HELL NAW! I want Joseph Gordon Levitt!

  35. 35

    National Enquirer. . .

  36. 36

    Johnny Depp is perfect for the role

  37. 37

    Re: lovesmadea – i agree. the riddler is not a special enough villian for chris nolans take on batman. the villians should be much more psycho than that. i would love to see the ventriloquest.

  38. 38

    you know what…i think he could do it.
    and did you really all eminem a thug??? wtf is wrong with you?

  39. 39

    I would actually like to see Eminem in this.

  40. n3lky says – reply to this


    i love eminem and i have no problem in him being in the movies !!!!

  41. @v@ says – reply to this


    Wow. That could work. He's a fresh face, and there's no doubt that he's enigmatic and that he could riddle better than anyone. It's almost typecasting.

  42. 42

    perez U LAME FUCK ! FUCK OFF !!

  43. 43

    jhonny deep is a natural i just hope this time he doesnt look like a girl…

  44. 44

    I think It would work…

  45. 45

    doesn't have the acting chops for it? have you seen 8 mile? eminem is one of the few singer/actor crossovers who actually CAN act.. but i still think the role should go to joseph gordon-levitt. no doubt.

  46. 46

    I smell another Jim Carrey here…

  47. 47

    If you have a chance to put Johnny Depp or Joseph Gordon Levitt in the movie would you really seriously consider Eminem? If you want really star power then you have to go with Johnny, but Joseph would be perfect for the role, he is a good actor.

  48. 48

    I agree Eminem would be refreshing as the Riddler and would do a great job, as much as I love Johnny Depp he is too commercial now. Time for some new meat in the movies, they keep using the same actors over and over and over…….

  49. 49

    (1st) ;D

    Christopher Nolan only employs ACTORS with TALENT, and NO CLICHE BAGGAGE.

  51. 51

    Chris Nolan is the director. NOT Joel Schumaker!

    Ergo…the cast is not going to be compromised by a circus performer with an 'entourage'.

  52. 52

    Perez y u always hating on Em? Havent u seen 8 Mile recently?? That was pure genius and there was Oscar buzz around him for best actor as well as music. He could totally pull it off. Hes clean n thinking straight give the guy a chance.

  53. 53


  54. 54

    Although all 3 could be great in there own rights, this has JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT written ALL OVER IT!!!

  55. Ayiio says – reply to this


    Depp yes , Gordon-Levitt hell fucking no .,

    I personnally wouldn't mind seing Eminem as the Riddler .

  56. 56

    @Asswipes My thoughts exactly - why does everybody think Depp is even interested in being Riddler? I vote for Crispin Glover, David Tennant, or even Eminem over JGL or DiCaprio - both guys are wonderful actors but not the right personality for the Riddler.

  57. 57

    Gary Busey to play The Riddler, The Penguin and Catwoman all at once

  58. 58

    you all are fucking crazy…not a single one of you could have called how good of a job that heath ledger would have done for the joker…and you all are lieing to yourself if you havnt been convinced by marshall's like 50 video's that he cant be anyone he wants…wake up and accept the fact that em might actually be a good choice for this…not to mention the fact that johnny depp doesnt need another fucking "oh im creepy and pale" movies…thats my 10 cents, my 2 cents where free…
