Cillian Murphy cast as villain in Batman 5



Story by: Jack Foley

WITH The Matrix and Lord of the Rings trilogies now departed, viewers may be feeling a little empty at the prospect of nothing much to look forward to.

But worry no more. Aside from Spider-Man 2, X-Men 3 and the prospect of a fourth Indiana Jones movie, the most interesting franchise that has yet to find a conclusion remains Batman, who looks set for a truly great makeover, following Warner Bros’ desire to get back to the darkness which made Tim Burton’s early movie so memorable.

With excitement already heightened by the prospect of having Memento/Insomnia director, Christopher Nolan, attached to the project, and Christian Bale as the caped crusader, proceedings are moving forward with great haste, concerning other members of the cast.

And in what is proving to be a distinctly British affair, Intermission star, Cillian Murphy, has reportedly landed the role of a villain in the fifth Batman movie.

The Irish star looks set to give Colin Farrell a run for his money next year, off the back of successful turns in Intermission, as well as 28 Days Later and the upcoming Girl With a Pearl Earring.

Murphy is quoted as saying that the characters that are a bit darker, and a little more ambiguous are the ones which appeal to him, especially those who are ‘torn between good and bad’.

It remains unclear, however, which villain Murphy has been cast to play, as script details are extremely hard to come by.
