Johnny Depp and Philip Seymour Hoffman in New Batman Flick?

Michael Caine may have spilled the beans:

“I was with [a Warner Bros.] executive and I said, ‘Are we going to make another one?’ They said yeah. I said, ‘How the hell are we going to top Heath? And he says ‘I’ll tell you how you top Heath — Johnny Depp as The Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman as The Penguin.’ I said, ‘S–t, they’ve done it again!’” [Laughs]  (Splash Page)

If true, this is something to be excited about.  Unless Nolan falls back on the cliched action film plot/direction of Batman Begins, this casting rumor would signal more brilliant casting for the franchise.  I can see each of these men in these roles.

Simpson Superhero Fan Art

supersimpsons Lion-O-Thundercats Dean T. Fraser has drawn a brilliant set of Superheroes in the style of the Simpsons at his blog, Springfield Punx.  They are giggle inducing.

He has just started what might become a Thundercats series.  You should definitely check out the blog if for no other reason than to see what the world would be like if we lived in Springfield.

Dean’s art is interesting and humorous, check out his other work at
