London (ANI): Actor David Tennant has dismissed speculation that he is in negotiations to play The Riddler in the next Batman movie. The Doctor Who star, who quit the cult sci-fi series to pursue a career in Hollywood, has previously spoken out about his desire to play the fiendish villian, portrayed by Jim Carrey in 1995's 'Batman Forever", and was recently rumoured to have had his wish granted by movie bosses.
And though Tennant says he would still love to take on the role, he has dismissed rumours that he is in talks to join the cast of a sequel to 2008's The Dark Knight. "I probably should be (The Riddler). But you'd think my agent would have mentioned something if it was true," the Daily Star quoted him as saying.
