What? I thought as long as we’re making completely pointless rumors, I might at least join in on the fun! The Sun recently “reported” (I use that term very loosely) that Eddie Murphy and Shia LaBeouf were signed on to Nolan’s third Batman film currently called “Gotham.”

FUNNYMAN EDDIE MURPHY will play The Riddler in the next Batman movie, The Sun can reveal.

The film, set for a 2010 release, is being developed under the working title Gotham.

Execs have also signed up rising Transformers star SHIA LABEOUF, 22, to play Robin.

Meanwhile, Brit RACHEL WEISZ is said to be up for the Catwoman role.

Bitch stole my role. I’ll have to fight her for it.

Honestly, I think people at The Sun are starting to celebrate the Christmas Holiday a little to soon. Lay off the whiskey until after noon.

And where did they get all this from? Well! An inside source, of course! Which said what exactly?

A film insider said: “Chris wasn’t sure if he wanted to do another movie but as soon as he decided to, he got the wheels in motion.”

Because if Chris says “go,” a script magically appears and Christian Bale shows up at his door in his full Batman suit.

Maybe, MAYBE if there was a script which Nolan and the studio both saw and liked, something MIGHT be in the works. But there is no script.

No script = No sign off from Warner Brothers. No script = No director signed on. No director and no studio = No movie and no cast!

That all said and done. Can I still be Catwoman?
