Moviehole has some cryptic news about the upcoming Batman Begins sequel, including hints at who they want for the upcoming Joker role.
"This is the first screen appearance for this character in the Batman films and she has a very close connection with a major character in Nolan's first Batman movie. She will be out for revenge against Bruce Wayne and Gotham in a major way. As of who the studio is looking at for this role, let's just say that she is nominated for a SAG, a Golden Globe and is on her way to an Oscar nomination as well. She is also in fact five months pregnant and will be in tip top fighting shape once production begins to roll early next year but not before she throws a few coins in a fountain".
We're also told that every actor in town is interested in playing The Joker in the next film. Chris Nolan is pretty keen on getting 'a name' though.
"As you know, there are many actors who want the chance to do this character (The most requested Batman character next to Batman himself.) The studio is eyeing a major, major actor and Christopher Nolan himself is said to be just as excited as they are in nabbing him for the role. Who is he? Let's just say that he has a major film coming out this summer and it's a sequel to one of his biggest hits. In fact, his performance in the first movie was nominated for an Oscar. YES, they are looking at HIM if he is available for the role and rumor is that he might be interested depending on the script, which is being written right now".
I don't see why they have to be so mysterious about this crap. Do they want Gwyneth Paltrow to play the Joker? Judi Dench? Stop with the games!

UPDATE: The best guesses we've got so far are Rachel Weisz for the role of Ra's Al Ghul's daughter Talia, and Johnny Depp for the role or the Joker.
