Ever since the death of actor Heath Ledger, the actor who played the Joker in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight, everyone has been reluctant to speak on the subject of the role including Nolan. It was clear that he intended the Joker to play a part in a third Batman, as the Joker was left dangling from a building at the end of Dark Knight – very much alive. And now the question on everyones mind is – will he fill the role? While in a interview with Empire Magazine Nolan was question on the subject of the matter, will he re-cast the role of the Joker for an appearance in Batman 3, to which Nolan answered:
“No”, he says unwilling to elaborate, understandably, he says “I just don’t feel comfortable talking about it.”
Which should give us a little closure to who will be in a third Batman, rumors that the Riddler and Cat-woman will make an appearance have spread online. But for now Nolan remains tight-lipped as ever on the subject of Batman 3, as he hasn’t even confirmed he will be directing. It’s nice to know the Joker will be left with Ledger.
