Michael Caine Reveals the Dark Knight’s New Enemies

Michael Caine is spilling the beans about the casting of Batman’s new foes in the follow up to the The Dark Knight.

The actor couldn’t contain his excitement to MTV News about who would step into the tights of the Riddler and the Penguin. 

“It’s Johnny Depp as the Riddler. And the Penguin is Philip Seymour Hoffman,” he told reporters. Casting rumors about Depp and Seymour Hoffman have been buzzing around for months.

But is Alfred the butler the best source of information? Who are his sources? “I read it in the paper.” Caine told MTV News. The paper, huh? But the thesp went on to say that he confirmed with a Warner Bros executive; so it appears the casting news is true. 

So take that, Robert Downey Jr.
