The Sun is reporting today that Eddie Murphy will be playing the role of The Riddler in the new Batman flick, tentatively being titled Gotham. This is not a good start to the new movie in my mind, because I hate Eddie Murphy and I think he’s a total asshole who treats women like dirt and abandons his babies. I have no idea if he’d be good in the role and I don’t care. I will be WAY less psyched about seeing it if he’s in it. Ew, ew, ew. I hope this is a lie.
Other Batman castings: Shia LaBeouf as Robin (confirmed) and Rachel Weisz as Catwoman (rumored).
Christian Bale and Michael Caine will be reprising their roles.
