If rumors are anything to go by, then yes. The blogosphere is already a buzz on who will play the next villains in the upcoming Batman movie. Some are already saying that Angelina Jolie is after the role of Catwoman. Others, that Philip Seymour Hoffman is gunning for The Penguin.
An “insider” (mail boy at Warner Brothers) spoke to the Telegraph about this very issue.
“Producers are convinced that the role of The Riddler is perfect for Depp. Johnny’s a pro. He’ll be able to take direction and still make the character his own. And what better Penguin is there than Philip Seymour Hoffman?”
