British tabloid The Sun has raised the ire of Batman fans with news that Eddie Murphy will play the Riddler in the next installment of the comic book blockbuster due in 2010.
While Eddie Murphy’s rep denied the Riddler rumour to Access Hollywood, The Sun is also reporting that Shia LaBeouf will be sidekicking it as Robin and Rachel Weisz will play Catwoman.
Some are dismissing Murphy in the Riddler role as rumour but, considering The Sun accurately reported that Daniel Craig would be the next Bond, fans should get used to the idea of the Norbit star moving into the Gotham neighborhood.
Blindie wishes the early rumours of Johnny Depp as the Riddler and Angelina Jolie as Catwoman were true.
