A few names have been rumored to play the Joker in the upcoming sequel to BATMAN BEGINGS. Names from Australian actor Lachy Hulme, Johnny Depp, Adrian Brody and British actor Paul Bettany. Screenwriter David Goyer has said that for the sequel it would have Batman enlisting the aid of Gordon and Dent in bringing down The Joker...but not killing him. In the third movie, The Joker would go on trial, scarring Dent in the process.

During the junket for the upcoming thriller FIREWALL, I had a chance to talk to Paul Bettany about those rumors of him being up for the role of the Joker in which he said “Yeah I heard nothing about it except through people saying ‘Are you in the Batman sequel? Am I?' No ones called me.” Bettany continues “I thought it was an extraordinary well made film (the first one) so I would be open to fraud negotiations.” [Laughs] “I simply haven't a clue because it also depends when these things happen. They have to fall evenly for me know.” Would Bettnay be open to play a villain like the Joker? “All work interest me, I'm absolutely open to everything.”

Bettany is taking a year off to spend time with his kids and beautiful wife Jennifer Connelly hence the reason things need to fall evenly for him.

The sequel to the summer 2005 hit film BATMAN BEGINS is most likely to have a release date in the summer of 2008.
