Johnny Depp has reportedly been approached to play a villain in the next Batman movie.
The actor wanted to portray The Riddler in the sequel to The Dark Knight, according to studio bosses.
A source said: "Johnny would be amazing as The Riddler. The studio knew they needed someone who could match or even top the late Heath Ledger's performance as The Joker in the most recent film The Dark Knight, and think Johnny has the potential to do so."
The Riddler is a manic supervillain who baffles Batman with his cryptic criminal clues. He first appeared in the comic book series in 1948, and was portrayed by Frank Gorshin in the 1960s US TV show, a role which earned him an Emmy nomination.
More recently, The Riddler was played by Jim Carrey in the 1995 movie Batman Forever.
Studio bosses are also said to be keen to get Philip Seymour Hoffman to play The Penguin in the new movie.
Nolan please don't ruin the film by casting that POS
