Batman Vs.Batman

Michael Keaton up for the Joker?


Seems about as likely as the AFI Saluting Paris Hilton’s film career, but never the less, an interesting rumour has hit the always-open ISH.

According to Dark Horizons, original “Batman” (1989) star Michael Keaton might be set to trade suits. Yep, according to a scooper, he’s being eyed for the role of ‘The Joker’ in the forthcoming “Batman Begins” sequel.

Keaton, whose expressed his love for the recent “Batman Begins” (mainly because a prequel idea is something he suggested back when they asked him to do the third film – which he consequently turned down), would play the clown prince of crime to Christian Bale’s Batman.

The upcoming sequel – still untitled, so stop sending me the ‘it’s going to be called ‘Batman goes Hawaiian’” emails – will also re-introduce to the series, Harvey Dent, rumoured to be played by “Scream” star Liev Schreiber.

Keep your eyes glued to the screen – Not that close! – for further updates.
