Batman will take on villain the Riddler in the next installment of the superhero franchise, according to the Caped Crusader’s butler, Michael Caine.
The British star of both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight has let it slip that his movie boss’ next foe will “probably be the Riddler” — a role made famous on screen by Jim Carrey in 1995’s Batman Forever and on TV by Frank Gorshin, who died in 2005.
Caine has no idea who will be cast, but is hoping for a performance to rival Heath Ledger‘s Oscar-winning portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight.
