If the Riddler is in fact casted for Batman 3 I think a perfect fit would be Sharlto Copley.
Reason: A very underrated and outstanding performance in District 9, and absolutely stole the show in the A-Team. I feel that he is relatively unknown still at this point (obviously compared to the super stars Johnny Depp, Robin Williams, Daniel Day Lewis) - three of the best actors of all time that have flooded the forums and gossip of who will play the next Batman villain.
Casting popular nominations:
-I believe that Depp has to run out of ideas for "odd" roles and if possible he may come up a bit short.
-Robin would have the charisma, but just doesn't seem to be the perfect fit.
-Obviously everyone's top choice would be Daniel Day Lewis (Favorite villain of all time as Bill The Butcher in Gangs of NY), but I think that the better play is Copley.
Side Thought: Also, if a heavy-weight has to be found to play the villain movie after movie, script after script, to one up or attempt to out do Ledger's Joker, we will find absolute disaster. Obviously Nolan is in control, the studio has stated this, but money talks, and with the comic/superhero boom, the studio will want to stay ahead and "compete". I digress...
Conclusion: All three would make excellent villains, don't get me wrong, but Sharlto Copley has so much potential and could bring an element that has never yet been seem before. He'd be full of laughs, mystery, and despair all the while being an effective adversary to the Bat.
What do you all think?

Is Sharlto Copley the main character in district 9...cause if so i just really don't see him playing the riddler...he was the only actor i paid attention 2 in district 9 so i assumer your talking about him...i could be wrong i just don't see it...i think a great pick for the riddle would b guy pierce...he has played wierd roles b4 and has been the villian in a movie...he is a great actor but does not invite the same pressure that a daniel day lewis or johnny depp would for future movies...if u don;t know who he is he was in chirsotpher nolans movie memento so he has already worked with nolan...and hewas also the bad guy in the count of monte cristo
No Riddler in Batman 3 however,THE PENGUIN might be introduced and they're trying to introduce Dick Grayson as Nightwing somehow since Christian Bale will skip BATMAN 3 if they include Robin.
