Johnny Depp on The Riddler

With casting rumours for Batman 3 flying around faster than batarangs in a wind tunnel, it's easy to get confused about what's official and what's not (Nolan's on holiday - official, Cher - not)

So thank Johnny Depp for putting at least one of them to bed. Well, sort of.

A Florida radio station took a call from a geek during a recent interview with the Deppster, and put The Riddler question to him.

Host: Hey Johnny, a listener called in earlier said you have to ask about the rumors on the internet of you doing the Riddler.

Depp: Oh yeah I heard about that. Not that I know of.

Host: You'd be a good choice.

Depp: It seems like it'd be a fun gig for a while, yeah.

Which is an answer that has just the right amount of mystery (for a while?! You mean the duration of the shoot?!) to make him utterly appropriate for the role. Comic Book Cynic has more...
