Depp for Dark Knight follow-up

Casting riddles kick off

Build a business case: developing custom apps

With Batman behemoth The Dark Knight pleasing audiences and critics alike, it's time for some rabid speculation about the casting of the next film in the rebooted franchise. The Sun froths this morning that the incandescent Johnny Depp is in line to play the Riddler, the bodystockinged bastard last played by Jim Carrey in Batman Forever.

Depp, a pretty safe pair of hands for almost any role, already has Batman connections. He took over the lead role in Heath 'Joker' Ledger's final unfinished film, Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, along with Colin Farrell and Jude Law. Depp is also sharing screen time with Christian 'Um, Batman' Bale in the forthcoming Public Enemies, in which our Johnny plays infamously cocky* gangster John Dillinger.

Everyone's favourite morality-and-mammaries rag also reckons that Philip 'Boogie' Seymour 'Nights' Hoffman might be coaxed into playing the Penguin, a role previously occupied by Danny 'Throw Momma From The Train' DeVito.

The El Reg film desk hereby tips Angelina 'Hubba hubba' Jolie for Catwoman. ®
