I'm pretty sure Christopher Nolan has said that he will not make a movie with the Penguin in it. Supposedly that is not a direction that he is interested in exploring.
Hoffmann had been rumored to play the Penguin in the Dark Knight. I'm glad they didn't throw him in there just for the sake of a cameo. That's a quick way to ruin a comic book movie. (see X-Men 3)
Either Angelina Jolie or Kate Beckinsale would make great Catwomen. Angelina has already made her intentions known to the producers that she wants the role.
I've heard they are going to pick ventriloquist and scarface as a villian
was the league of shadows a bad guy from the comics?
If not maybe they will dream up new baddie.
There is no concrete proof two face could not return.
To me they will never let anyone else (at least in this franchise) play joker. What actor would want to and how could they hope to even equal his performance.

Other options include Killer Croc and Mad Hatter. Also, it is not impossible to do a dark Mr. Freeze. The animated series episode that introduced the character won an Emmy, I believe.
BUT, on the same line of people who did voices from the animated series, how hilarious would it be to see Luke Skywalker playing the Joker? :biglaugh:
All I can think of is his role as Cockknocker from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
It will be interesting. The character would have to fit into Nolan's 'real world' view of the franchise.
Yeah, bring back Mr. Freeze since that worked out so well last time. Heh, or not.
I thought the Joker was about as campy as it could get so if they can do a good job with that they can do a good job with anybody although I'd kind of like to see somebody that hasn't been in a movie yet.
with the way this series is going with the current director and theme, I can't see Johnny Depp, or Jolie as villains. They are not dark enough.
The joker could remain a villian in the third installment...I could see him being an "off screen" role running things from the assylum, while introducing a new villian.
