Michael Caine on 'Batman 3': No Johnny Depp


Johnny Depp


'There is nobody, there's no script, there's nothing,' insisted the actor who plays Alfred Pennyworth in the last two installments of 'Batman' film at this year's Toronto International Film Festival.

Although he has uttered willingness to join "Batman 3", Johnny Depp is unlikely to be seen taking a part in the possible next installment of the caped crusader. Offering words on the matter was "The Dark Knight" actor Michael Caine when MTV caught up with him during 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.

"Johnny Depp is great in anything, but there is no Johnny Depp in this Batman," the Alfred Pennyworth depicter opened up on the chance Depp will be seen in future Batman movie. Although admitting that it could be wrong, the 76-year-old reinforced his statement by saying, "They tell me in no uncertain terms."

On the status of "Batman 3", the "Batman Begins" actor claimed that the movie won't be developed by 2011. "There is nobody, there's no script, there's nothing," the Academy Award-winning actor stated. He then added that director Christopher Nolan is busy with his upcoming sci-fi feature, saying "It can't possibly be made before 2011 because 'Inception' is such a big picture."

In late June, Johnny Depp has addressed speculations that placed him as a strong candidate to star as Batman's foe, the Riddler. While promoting "Public Enemies", the Captain Jack Sparrow in "Pirates of Caribbean" trilogy told MTV, "If the opportunity came, I'd definitely juggle it. I always liked the Riddler."

So far, nothing has been set in stone for the follow-up film to the 2008 blockbuster "The Dark Knight". Director Christopher Nolan is yet to commit to the possible project despite thoughts that he will return to his helming position after finishing his work on "Inception". Actor Gary Oldman has suggested that "Batman 3" is set to start filming in 2010. Warner Bros. has declined to comment of the start date rumor.
