Batman's next bad guys?

Movie Rumor site Dark Horizons is speculating that movie executives are zeroing in on Philip Seymour Hoffman and Johnny Depp to be the "Penguin" and "The Riddler" in the next Batman movie.

Take it with a grain of salt.

Nothing has been finalized, discussed or even offered yet. Nolan and Bale aren't even signed for the third film yet.

The news comes via a conversation with Michael Caine and a studio executive.

As much as I'd LOVE to see a third installment of the franchise. A small part of me hopes that they don't do another one.

The Dark Knight was so good....I don't forsee a scenario where I think they can make a better movie.

So why try?

I don't think anyone wants to see Nolan and Bale try to drum up another adventure...just for the hell of it.

But if they honestly, have a solid idea, with a story they passionately want to tell and they aren't fueled by dollar signs... I'm game for them to finish off the trilogy.

God knows it'll make tons of money.

If they pull it'll go down as one of the greatest trilogies ever.
