No The Riddler Role for Eddie Murphy


Eddie Murphy
Eddie Murphy's representative has laughed off report claiming that the 'Meet Dave' actor will star as The Riddler in 'The Dark Knight' sequel.


Eddie Murphy won't be Batman's next villain, The Riddler. Throwing cold water to the brewing rumor about Murphy's potential role in the sequel of "The Dark Knight", his representative slammed down the speculations, telling Access Hollywood that the reports are "not true".

Previously, The Sun reported that the 47-year-old has been touted by director Christopher Nolan as the villainous character once made famous by Jim Carrey in 1995's "Batman Forever". The publication quoted an insider saying, "Eddie's a fantastic addition. Everyone's excited to see what he does as the Riddler."

Meanwhile, on Thursday, December 18, Alan Horn, the president of Warner Bros., has indirectly cleared off the circulating casting rumors. He told Collider in a red carpet interview at the premiere of "Yes Man" that the main priority of the studio at the moment is the movie's storyline and not the cast ensemble.

All rumors aside, much about "Batman 3" remain unclear. The speculation over this follow-up movie has grown since "The Dark Knight" displayed its amazing run at the box office. Listed as U.S. second highest grossing movie of all time behind James Cameron's 1997 "Titanic", the Christian Bale-starring film has collected so far $996.7 million worldwide since its release on July 18.
