    Fact Check: Alberto Falcone confessed to being The Holiday Killer, but was he really? Gilda Dent committed the first murders then she believes Harvey took over. Other than the confession there is no proof Alberto was the Holiday Killer

    If u look at the first 2 movies & read all the stuff with The Long Halloween, this is the way Nolan has been going with the movies. Look how u had Carmine Falcone in Batman Begins, I truely think that JGL is going to play A.Falcone aka The Holiday Killer. But it has been confirmed from what I head that the character Ed Nashton is in the movie aka The Riddler.

    Weird. Falcone seemed kinda perfect for both JGL and Nolan’s universe.

    Didn’t Gary Oldman recently mention that there’s going to be a villain from one of the old, old Batman comics?

  • Jason

    He’s playing Tommy Solomon!

  • Cool

    I am excited about this, however it is starting to look alot like Batman: Inception. LOL!

    • Megan

      That’s *why* I’m excited! Inception had a killer ensemble cast!

    Black Mask

    what ? no love for calanderman ?

  • Don

    I was hoping he would play Hugo Strange.

    Nolan’s Riddler would be one of the best movie characters ever, as puzzles are Nolan’s speciality (Memento, The Prestige, Inception, ect.). He did say he wasn’t bringing I’m into it, but that’s who I’d like to see. A mob boss might be a stretch for JGL; he seems too young and non-menacing, but in Nolan’s hands anything is possible. In any case, COME ON SUMMER OF 2012!!!

    I think he’s going to be cobra commander…

  • Luke

    I wonder if it’s as one of Bane’s henchmen – Bird or Zombie, maybe.

  • K-Mo!!!

    I don’t even care who is gonna be… I’m just excited he’s gonna be in it at all!!!

    Ages ago, I made the observation that he looks a lot like Heath Ledger (facially). That, plus the fact that he has the acting chops to pull it off, makes me think he will be re-cast as the Joker.

  • WB Insider

    Who says he’s a villain? Think outside the box people.

    • Allie

      I say he’s a cop, or a super sexy butler

  • gabriel

    I know he’s kind of too old for the part, but what if he’s cast as Robin?
