Rumors Flying Like Bats

Batman could return to Chicago as early as February

Did you get a DVD of The Dark Knight for the holidays this year? If you've had a chance to watch it, you may be wondering when director Christopher Nolan's next installment in the Batman series is coming along.

Rumor has it that Nolan's third superhero chapter will enter pre-production in February, and offices for the production could open as early as next month. But never mind all that, who's going to be in the movie?

The most popular whispers around the Hollywood water cooler involve Johnny Depp as The Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman as The Penguin. But The Dark Knight co-writer David Goyer told MTV in October not to believe anything they hear.

"Chris and I haven't even talked about it. He quite understandably is taking a long, long vacation and wants to purge himself," said Goyer.

According to E! Online, other casting possibilities include Oscar-winner Rachel Weisz as Catwoman.

Whatever happens, we will trust Nolan to do the right thing, and he can take as much time as he likes if it means avoiding another Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy flop.
