Here are a couple new updates for the sequel to Batman
Begins. We first expected that the two villains would be The Joker and Two Face but it now looks like it will be The Joker and The Penguin.
Heath Ledger, who was first reported to have signed on to play The Joker in the next Batman installment, now seems hesitant to jump aboard. At least, according to a 'source.'
Heath Ledger Might be The Joker
The good people over at BOF have recently received a scoop from a trusted source that claims Heath Ledger has yet to sign anything for the Batman Begins sequel and is actually hesitant to do so.
As you have long suspected, the two main villains in the BATMAN BEGINS sequel will be The Joker and The Penguin.
I can confirm (as I did a few weeks ago) that while an offer has been made to Heath Ledger, Ledger has not signed any deal, and is reluctant to do so (at the moment.) Ledger is not a lock.
The report also goes on to mention that the great Phillip Seymour Hoffman is a possibility in the next film.
It seems Nolan has been listening to you guys when it comes to casting his other villain, however. I can confirm that an offer has been made to Phillip Seymour Hoffman for the role. Yet Hoffman has indicated that he may not get involved in the sequel.
