    Batman to fight The Riddler in next movie

    Los Angeles (PTI): British actor Michael Caine, who plays the butler of superhero Batman has revealed that the superhero will take on villain 'The Riddler' in the next installment of the film.

    Caine, who starred in both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight said that the Caped Crusader's next enemy will "probably be The Riddler", a character made famous by by Jim Carrey in Batman Forever in 1995.

    Reports suggest that either actor Johnny Depp or Eddie Murphy will be roped in to play the next villain comic book film. But Caine refused to reveal further about the character, saying he had no idea who will be cast, People online reported.

    He, however, said the performance should match Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning portrayal of The Joker in The Dark Knight.

    "I thought it (The Joker character) was going to be a tough job for anyone who played the role after Jack Nicholson (in 1989's Batman). Now Heath is the Joker."
