With Bane and Catwoman officially announced, rumors have been swirling that Robin Williams may join the cast of Christopher Nolan’s third Batman installment as Hugo Strange. For what it’s worth I’d take it with a grain of salt, but according to Batman-News, there’s some credible evidence to support their claim.
From their site:
The tweet above from BOF’s Jett peaked my interest this morning. Jett has mentioned Robin Williams before on his BOF message board and Facebook page… could he be onto something? The last time Jett dropped hints about possible The Dark Knight Rises villains was when he kept mentioning Bane on his message board, and we know how that turned out.
Speculation or stretch? You be the decider. But for the record, Williams has been name dropped to play nearly every Batman villain from the Joker to the Riddler even before Nolan officially took over the franchise back in 2005. What does that have to do with anything? A lot, or maybe nothing.
“The Dark Knight Rises” is set to be released on July 20th, 2012!
