    Interesting... article mentions that Johnny Depp from Pirates of the Caribbean was supposed to be Riddler originally. I would have liked him in that part, I guess we will have to wait and see how Eddie Murphy plays that role.

    I think it's a mistake to include a Robin

    Probably fake. Don't believe everything you read in the Sun.

    Is there an IMDB page for this Batman movie yet? I'll believe this more if I see it on IMDB

    I checked IMDB but it doesn't seem to have a page for the 2010 Batman Gotham movie yet... unless I missed it

    I don't like the idea of having a Robin either; It steals focus from Batman.

    However, if there was to be a Robin in the new Batman film, I think Shaia Labeouf is a good choice for that role.

    It has gotta be a lie. I don't think it fits Christopher Nolan's style. Plus Christian Bale stated already that he won't accept a Robin in the Movie. The exact quote was:

    "If Robin crops up in one of the new Batman films, Iíll be chaining myself up somewhere and refusing to go to work."

    Source: Christian Bale Rules Out Robin For Batman 3 (and beyond) | /Film (more reliable then The Sun)

    I think that it is still too early in Batman's career to have a Robin. I think a Robin could be a god idea (IF done correctly) however I feel like the producers should wait and not introduce him in the 2010 Batman 3 film (Gotham).

    I agree. A well made Robin introduced in the correct moment (which is not this film) can be very interesting to see.

    Don't know... still don't like the idea of introducing a Robin in any Batman film. I think it should focus solely on Batman. If you put in a Robin it ends up either stealing the show from Batman, or being totally offset by Batman

    I will only believe it if and when either Christopher Nolan or Christian Bale confirm it.

    I don't think it's true. I don't even think the new Batman film is really going to be called Gotham. This is all a made up story from the Sun.

    Update: Eddie Murphy has denied that he is going to be Riddler in the 2010 Gotham Movie.

    "A representative for Eddie Murphy's denied the actor will take on the role of The Riddler in a new Batman movie. "
